SHELTON — River Road could soon be home to a development that would include more than three dozen duplex units, a supermarket and a medical office building.

Developers 740 River Road, LLC recently received approval from the Inland Wetlands Commission for its plans to redevelop land at 740 River Road, presently home to three structures that would be demolished to make way for the new project.

Attorney Dominick Thomas, who represents the developer, said an application seeking to turn the 10-acre site — which sits next to the long-vacant Autoswage Products, Inc., — into a Planned Development District (PDD).

The plans call for construction of 41 duplex units overlooking the Housatonic River. Facing River Road would be two structures — a three-story, 30,000-square-foot building listed on the plans as a medical office building and a 13,500-square-foot building marked as supermarket.

The property would include 420 parking spaces — two for each of the duplex units, with the remainder for the two structures.
