Plans filed for four-story apartment building on former Perkins Farm property

Mystic — A Groton developer has filed a site plan application for a $20 million, 121-unit apartment building, the last approval he needs to begin construction of the first phase of a medical, research and residential campus on the former Perkins farm on Jerry Browne Road.

David Lattizori already has received approval from the Stonington Planning and Zoning Commission for a zoning regulation amendment and a master plan for the project and last month received a permit from the Stonington Inland Wetlands Commission for construction of the apartment building.

The Planning and Zoning Commission now will hold a public hearing on the application on April 17.

Plans for the Harbor Heights apartments show the four-story building located in the northeast section of the property adjacent to Interstate 95. The large undeveloped area will buffer the apartments and a proposed group of townhouse condominiums from residential properties to the east.

The four-story, three-sided building partially will enclose a central courtyard containing a swimming pool and two pavilions. Parking and one-story garage buildings ring the apartment complex.

Plans show a fitness center, yoga studio, conference room, community room, business center and cafe, among other amenities.

The primary entrance to the site will be the intersection of Coogan Boulevard, while a secondary entrance would be located east of Pequotsepos Road. The secondary entrance, though, is closer to the apartment building.

If the entire 70-acre project is built as envisioned by Lattizori, the project would become the town’s largest taxpayer, generating an estimated $1.3 million a year in tax revenue and creating several hundred jobs.
