Derby Downtown, LLC formally submitted plans this week to Derby City Hall and the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission to build 215 market-rate apartments and about 8,500 square feet of commercial space at 23 Factory St. within the Derby Redevelopment Zone.
The project includes two lots comprising about 2.8 acres at 23 Factory St. (currently Barretta’s Landscaping and Garden) across from a parking lot known locally as “Hallock’s Landing.”
According to a letter from Christopher J. Smith, the lawyer representing Downtown Derby, LLC, the project will include:
- 192 one-bedroom apartments
- 14 two-bedroom apartments
- four two-bedroom townhouse dwellings
- Five studio apartments
In addition, Nilsen said the complex will have attractive modern apartment amenities such as gyms, a swimming pool, a dog washing station — even virtual golf.
Downtown Derby LLC includes Connecticut builders Jim and Steve Lepore, who are partnering with property owners Jena-Bonazzoli-Barretta and Christopher M. Barretta Sr., according to a previous press release.
