Tonight, Wilton’s Planning & Zoning Commission will hold what is likely to be the last public hearing on the Wilton Heights mixed-use development proposed for 300 Danbury Rd.. Developer Paxton Kinol has just released the most recent renderings of the project today in advance of the meeting. These drawings incorporate all of the changes Kinol’s team has received to day–both cosmetic design, after receiving feedback at several Village District Design Consultant Committee meetings; and regulatory accommodations, after multiple prior meetings with P&Z as well as the Inland Wetland Commission.

Kinol sent these drawings “hot off the presses” to GOOD Morning Wilton earlier Monday, and commented on how the process has gone. He’s clearly eager to put the land use approvals process behind him and get moving on permits and construction.

“We are pleased with the outcome of the Wilton Heights development plans which incorporates the feedback from the Architecture board. We hope to close our hearing tonight and wrap up our final town approval by the end of the month,” Kinol said, adding, “I believe we have received unanimous approvals from each Wilton board we have presented to over the past 10 months and now we are hoping to move forward towards building permits. This final site plan approval will trigger the State Traffic Commission to complete their final review which should be the final hurdle to clear the way towards building permits later this year.”

The new designs incorporates a stronger New England mill style building motif. Previous iterations planned for a combination of styles to resemble a New England village that grew organically over centuries, and looked more like these drawings, below:
