Adam's Garden Housing Complex in Old Greenwich will be seeing some major changes soon. First up, the Greenwich Housing Authority is planning to upgrade all 80 kitchens in the complex by fall.
"It's going to be fabulous. We are going to have all new cabinets, granite countertops, new stoves, microwaves, new floors, and we have to do some electrical work. It's going to really be nice and give them all an upgrade," said Chairman of the Greenwich Housing Authority Sam Romeo.
Another Housing Authority project includes the addition of more units to the complex.
"We are adding 11 units of new housing. We carved out a section of land that was underutilized," said Romeo.
Plans also include moving this play scape and basketball court out of the center of the complex.
"We are creating three new playgrounds in that area and we are going to do them age appropriate. The little kids will be closer to the other units that re presently there and the older kids can be further away for the basketball court. It'll work out pretty nice," said Romeo.
These renovations and additions reflect the Town's Plan of Conservation and Development.
"There is a section in there that said that we should seek to use under-utilized property, and we should be building affordable housing near bus routes and other areas where people can shop and walk, where they don't need vehicles. This is consistent with the Plan of Development," said Romeo.
There are no set tenants for the new units yet, but there is already a long waiting list.
