950 Phenix Avenue Development


For years, the parcel of land located off Phenix Avenue has sat dormant; years of dumping and neglect allowed wild vegetation and debris to flourish.  The Master Plan for this site includes a multi-purpose commercial development.  The site will include a street front retail building, ample parking, and a secondary means of egress from the site.  Towards the back of the site, a climate controlled self storage facility will occupy automobile storage and a commercial storage/condo facility.


Over the last several years Blue Dog Capital and Lacuna Design have worked on a master plan to properly rezone the property and provide the town with a proposal.  The proposal aims to maximize the sites potential and provide the people of the town an acceptable development solution.  With careful consideration to the site, the location of the proposed functions and the impact to the local infrastructure and economy the plan was approved by the local zoning board.


The earthwork and ground preparation began at the end of Summer 2016, with an anticipated first phase completion date of Summer 2017.
