Phase 1: R&D provides development opportunities from 28 to 62.5 acres.
The multi-phase, mixed-use development has been approved as a Traditional Neighborhood Designed Development (TNDD) creating a new zoning and concept plan through The Great Pond Form-Based Code. Additionally, the new zoning streamlines the permit and approval process as developers only need architectural sign-off that the design conforms with Great Pond’s Form Based Code, which eliminates the need to conduct any public hearings in connection with the approval process. The goal for Great Pond Village is to incorporate and build on the style and form of a traditional New England town, which consists of diverse two- to five-story building types and a mix of commercial and residential uses in a compact, pedestrian-oriented development. With this new zoning, a developer has the flexibility to lay out the desired mix of residential, retail and hotel. There are no affordable requirements for residential development in the District.
