Redevelopment in Groton Picks up Speed
9 Dec 2020
GROTON — For years, plans to redevelop five vacant school buildings in Groton have inched ahead, but with the first project — a 280-unit apartment complex — set to break ground as soon as next year, town officials say they hope that new developments will attract many of the thousands of people who work in Groton, but live elsewhere.
The Town of Groton owns five vacant school properties it would like to sell to developers.
To date, developers have proposed converting two schools into apartments, one into office space and to demolish another to make way for a new mixed-use community with apartments.
