41.5-acre Waterbury property, center of a controversial development proposal in 2007, listed for sale

Contributed The 41.54-acre property in Waterbury was the site of an unpopular 330-condominium development proposal in 2007.

Seventeen years ago, Waterbury residents turned out in numbers to oppose a proposed 330-condominium development skirting the city’s Town Plot and Country Club neighborhoods.

Amid opposition, the "Renaissance Place” proposal was scaled back and redubbed “Stonebridge Commons,” but faded away as the real estate market crashed.

Now, the 41.54-acre property for which it was proposed has been put on the market.

But the zoning has since changed from residential multifamily to a single-family district, meaning a project of the scale of Stonebridge is unlikely at best.

Westport-based Vidal Wettenstein listed the property, which branches off a 400-foot frontage on Highland Avenue, on the market last week. It is advertised as developable as single-family homes, perhaps in a campus community with common-ownership.

The wooded property also has access potential on New Haven Avenue.

A price is not being advertised online, with prospective buyers asked to contact Vidal Wettenstein.
