Shelton P&Z approves apartment, retail plans for former Chromium Process site

Development of the former Chromium Process site — which has been home to parking for those living, working and visiting businesses downtown — has received the go-ahead. The Planning and Zoning Commission, at its meeting Tuesday, unanimously approved developer John Guedes’ plans to construct a four-story building on land listed as 113 Canal St., with first floor retail and 30 apartments — at least three of which will be affordable units — on the top three floors. The former Chromium Process site, which has been environmentally remediated, borders on Canal Street East and Canal Street West and is adjacent to the Housatonic Rail Co. and a few hundred feet from the Housatonic River. The site is currently used as a parking lot and is within walking distance of public parking facilities.
