Developer disappointed by rejection By GENEVIEVE REILLY Connecticut Post August 14, 2008 FAIRFIELD - Felix Charney is frustrated and disappointed.Since buying the former Handy & Harman factory property at 1770 Kings Highway nearly five years ago, his company, Summit Development, has devoted time and money to clean up the industrial brownfield and prepare it for commercial redevelopment.
Now, that work is in limbo.The Town Plan and Zoning Commission this week turned down Charney's application to change the zone classification for the property from Designed Industrial District to Designed Commercial District.
In addition to the zone change, Charney sought a special permit to build a Whole Foods store and two other retail buildings on the site, which abuts a Home Depot.
