Chatham Square Neighborhood

A Diverse Fair Haven Community with Historic Homes and a Beautiful Waterfront

CANCELED: HEIGHTS ON THE RIVER DEVELOPMENT AT ZBA ON JULY 10

     An interested group of Fair Haven Heights residents obtained the 2nd plan submitted by the developers which sought to obtain approval for a PDU (Planned Development Unit) with 35 units of about 523 sq. ft. out of 53 and 2 spots for retail on the street level. The single building had a facade appearing to be 3 and was serviced by one elevator. All the open space was taken by parking.

     The group met with Noel Petra and his project manager Alexandra Daum to review the plans, together with the request for a Variance on the open space requirement, and asked many questions and offered constructive criticism. The group's focus was on the overall need for a quality development that created a destination and re-established the building and its retail as the historic "heart" of the Fair Haven and Fair Haven Heights neighborhood, which are still viewed as one neighborhood. The need for the project to provide access to the river was also a focus.

     Members of this group have been working to revive the public access at the Clifton St. Canoe Ramp and the adjacent property on the river side of the Grand Bridge restaurant, a now derelict building. Photos of their work are attached.

     FYI, the developers do not own any of the properties on East Grand Avenue, but have options to buy from different entities traced to Carl Youngman.

     This week Petra sent an email saying that 3 units were cut from the plan and a PDU was not necessary so there would be no ZBA hearing.
