A New Jersey-based developer has submitted revised plans for the residential component of the Fountain Square mixed-use project in Shelton.

The Shelton Planning and Zoning Commission at a hearing Wednesday heard plans from applicant F.S. Shelton LLC and principal John Abene for a five-story, multi-unit apartment complex at 745-801 Bridgeport Ave.

The $25 million project, by developer Highview Commercial, would feature 170 apartments, a portion of which would be affordable. The development would feature nine studio apartments and 81 one-bedroom, eight one-bedroom with office, and 72 two-bedroom apartments, along with a pool, club house and other amenities. 

The plans call for 52 affordable units, half at 80% of the area median income (AMI), and half at 60%, the development team said. The remaining apartments would be market rate.

The board last year denied a plan that called for 152 units, 18% of which would be affordable at 80% AMI. 

Plans previously approved for a 123-room hotel and office space were scrapped for the residential building. 

If approved, the apartment building would sit among several new commercial buildings, including restaurants, medical and retail sites that are a part of the multimillion-dollar Fountain Square development area that has been in the works since 2019.
