Greenwich Plaza/Train Station Redevelopment
On July 9, 2019, the Town announced the $45 million redevelopment of the Greenwich Transportation Center through a public-private partnership between the Town of Greenwich and Greenwich Plaza, owned by The Ashforth Company.
The funding for the project will be provided by The Ashforth Company. The Town will be contributing toward the public benefit improvements portion of the redevelopment by transferring to Greenwich Plaza, upon the successful conclusion of the project, the air rights currently owned by the Town and leased to Greenwich Plaza on the south side of the tracks. As part of this transfer the Town also will receive a perpetual easement for the use of all of the A-level commuter lot, including the portion owned by Greenwich Plaza, replacing the license currently held by the Town which expires at the end of the air rights lease.
This is a complex project with a lot of related information to digest. Below you will find all public documents relating to the project. As the project progresses, we will continue to post new documents and updates here. Please note, as the project moves through the process, information and plans are subject to change so be sure to check posted dates.
