Rare new development takes shape adjacent to Darien train station

At the former site of a Stop & Shop opposite the Metro-North Noroton Heights station, a big new development is taking shape that will include a number of dining options familiar to people on both ends of the commute in Connecticut and New York City. Farther up the line in Norwalk, Building & Land Technology is planning to follow up its new Curb apartment complex with the larger North Seven development, which would add several new buildings with ground-floor retail, extending north from the Merritt 7 station of the Danbury branch. Federal Realty will not finalize its initial lease rates until this spring, according to Patrick McMahon, senior vice president of regional development. “It all needs to work together — and that’s what makes it work,” said Stuart Biel, senior vice president of regional leasing for Federal Realty.
