Medical Building and Sit-Down Restaurant Planned For Downtown Naugatuck

The Borough will receive $150,000 for the land it owns.

Naugatuck Mayor Bob Mezzo said a medical office use for Parcel C downtown is “one of the highest and best uses you can have” for that site and he added he is extremely happy with the proposal.

The Borough has reached a consensus to sell Parcel C to developers Rob Oris and John Lombard for $150,000. In return they plan to construct a two to three story medical office building and a sit-down restaurant at the corner of Maple and Water streets, the Waterbury Republican-American reports. 

The Borough as part of the agreement will tear down an existing building at 158 Maple Street costing $98,000. 

Mezzo added the proposed restaurant use is also an important amenity for downtown. 

The parcel downtown has sat empty for decades. Mezzo said it appeared the entire downtown would get a massive facelift in 2003 when a developer agreed with the borough to construct hundreds of upscale condos and residents approved the plans in a 2007 referendum. But the economy collapsed and the project fell by the wayside and in 2012 the borough and the developer went their separate ways.

Is 158 Maple Street the old restaurant (white building) on the corner?

It's the building across from Maple street that has no land....sits right on the curb at the end of the bridge.

Zero parking means zero customers

No, the white building has a South Main Street Address. 158 Maple Street is U.S. Rubber Building 25. The perfect thing for parcel C is a 24 hour Denny's! Start the campaign!

Sorry, Matt you are right about the addresses. Both needed to go a long time ago!
