A New Haven property owner who previously got approval to convert a factory into residential apartments is seeking an extension.

The City Plan Commission next week will consider extending for a period of five years an approved site plan to convert 69-75 Daggett St., into 80 residential units.

The plan was originally approved by the CPC in early 2019. If approved, the requested five-year extension would expire on Jan. 23, 2029.

The matter is on the agenda for the commission to consider at its meeting Wednesday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m.

The property is owned by 69-75 Daggett Street LLC. Its principal is Honey Damaghi of Great Neck, New York, according to the Secretary of the State’s office.

City records show the current owner purchased the building in 2004 for $1.4 million.

The originally approved plans called for the structure to be fully renovated, with a mix of apartments with one, two or three bedrooms.

Attorney Benjamin Trachten, of New Haven-based Trachten Law Firm, who is representing the property owner, said Friday the project was delayed due to the COVID pandemic.

At the time of the original approval, the applicant estimated construction would take 14 months to complete.

The building at one time was home to the Seamless Rubber Co., which made soft rubber goods such as surgical gloves.
