Groton - Building Boom (I guess)


Recommended Posts

Route 184, from west to east, seems abuzz with development activity in the past year with a number of projects having been built, approved or proposed for the main thoroughfare in the northern part of town.

The projects range from a proposed 90-seat, 24-hour diner on the western end to a completed 62-unit senior housing condominium complex in the eastern spur a mile from the Stonington border. They also range in size from a completed 3,000-square-foot indoor recreation facility to a proposed retail building consisting of about 182,111 square feet.


Haley Brook Center, a 4-acre commercial development now under construction at 2414 and 2440 Gold Star Highway, includes the redevelopment of the site of the former Ted's Sales Room, an indoor flea-market business that burned down in August 1999.

The center would include a new 5,200-square-foot neighborhood market with a drive-through Dunkin' Donuts, a three-bay automatic car wash, 7,500 square feet of retail space and 7,500 square feet of office space. After the market is built, the existing convenient store at the adjacent Mobil gas station site will be torn down, Zelken said. The existing gas pumps and canopy will remain.

Well, they're basically renewing old sprawl, which is all Groton can hope for, they have way too much room to expand and no limitations. While the city of Groton is somewhat dense, the town of Groton is basically open for the taking. 184 is rural compared to the sprawl mess that is Route 1 & Route 12.
