Zoning Approval for 114 Market and Affordable Apartments

In 2020, we helped obtain approvals by both the Cheshire Planning and Zoning Commission and Inland Wetlands Commission for our client, Lamp Realty, LLC, to build 114 new apartments on the site of an abandoned nursing home. A quarter of the units will have affordable rents for moderate income tenants, such as police officers and teachers. The Commission had adopted its own regulation to promote affordable housing and ours was the first proposal filed under the new regulation. The Shipman-led team was able to overcome substantial opposition and convince the Commission that there was a substantial need for moderately-priced affordable housing in Cheshire and that the proposed development plan was a solid one that complied with all regulatory standards.
