A planned 225-unit luxury apartment development in Newington is regaining momentum after the withdrawal of a court challenge, which was followed by a $2.3 million land sale.

In April 2022, Newington’s Zoning Commission approved a special permit allowing Pennsylvania-based multifamily builder A.R. Building Co. Inc. to build luxury apartments on a roughly 26-acre site along the Berlin Turnpike.

A neighbor appealed that approval, claiming the Zoning Commission acted contrary to regulations. That appeal was withdrawn June 6, court records show.

Culver Street Apartments LLC, an affiliate of A.R. Building Co., recently paid $2.3 million for undeveloped parcels at 35, 67 and 69 Culver St., as well as a 1,152-square-foot, 1936-vintage house on 0.76 acres on Deming Road. The sale of the properties, which tally about 26 acres,  was logged by the town in early July.

The seller was RD Three LLC.

Reno Properties Group, of Newington, announced Tuesday morning it was the sole broker of the sale. Reno said the buyer plans to build a Class A luxury apartment complex with a pool, fitness center and other amenities. The development will be in proximity to a Walmart, Lowe’s Home Improvement and other national retailers, according to the release.

“We pride ourselves on creating growth and expansion in central Connecticut, especially when we can be the connecting factor between buyers and sellers in complex transactions” Dan Garofalo, managing broker and principal at Reno Properties Group said.

Attempts to reach a representative of A.R. Building Co. were not immediately successful.
