DANBURY — The city’s plans to retrofit a corporate campus into a career academy for 1,400 upper grade students ran into new complications as soon as the city received permission to rezone the 24-acre site from industrial to residential, and thereby permit the school.
“We did just go in and revise the zone to a residential zone which unfortunately drove us to have to get (a) variance (for) the building height from 52 feet to 55 feet,” said Antonio Iadarola, the city engineer, during a public hearing earlier this month. “The other thing is in the (residential) zone we are really only allowed to have a three-story, but the existing building is a four-story, so unfortunately due to the change in the zoning, it does require us to have you endorse the existing condition of the four-story building that is currently out there right now.”
