FAIRFIELD, CT — The long vacant lot at 2190 Post Road in Southport could be the new home of a proposed “high end multi-family residential, service retail and luxury selfstorage” development.

Proposed by New York City-based developers TVG Partners, the Village at Sasco Hill will be the subject of a preliminary discussion by the Fairfield Plan and Zoning Commission Tuesday.

The 6-acre property was home to the former Exide Battery facility, which had to undergo a decades-long environmental cleanup, before it could be considered for any development.

“We have no formal application as of yet, and this is not a public hearing,” town Planning Director Jim Wendt told Patch about the Village at Sasco Hill project. “That will come later, if a formal application is subsequently submitted.”

In a seven-page presentation to the commission, TVG Partners writes that it is proposing that the development would include some open space along the adjacent Mill River.

“It’s being designed in a classic New England style with a series of smaller buildings, using architectural breaks with varying materials, such as clapboard and brick, giving it the appearance of a charming colonial village,” the developers wrote about the structures.

“All apartments will be contained on floors two and three and will be larger than normal with high end features to distinguish this product from the majority of other multi-family offerings in the area. Parking will be underneath and in the surrounding parking fields.”

The 98 apartments would largely be a mix of one- and two-bedroom units, and 11 of those, or 11 percent, would be designated as “workforce” units.

Wendt said the proposal is not an 8-30g development, a state law to boost the number of affordable housing units throughout Connecticut.

“We have an inclusionary provision that developments with over 10 units must deed restrict at least 10-12 percent of the units at 80 percent area median income,” Wendt said.

In addition to the apartments, the development would include retail space on the first floor, and a separate four-story, 160,000-square-foot self-storage facility, most of which would not be visible from the Post Road. The storage facility building will help muffle the sound of trains from the nearby tracks.

The project moves forward, it would be TVG Partners’ first in Fairfield, though the New York company has built three developments in Norwalk.

Other proposed features of the project include, solar panels on the roof of the storage facility, which would power that building and the common areas of the other buildings; public electric vehicle charging stations; and buildings that will be constructed using the most energy efficient materials.
