NORWALK, Conn. – It looks like Lowe’s is coming to Norwalk.
The Zoning Commission on Wednesday night approved a proposal to allow the company to demolish a long-vacant building at 80-100 Connecticut Ave. and construct one of its big box home improvement stores. The approval came with stipulations aimed at preventing excess noise during construction.
Commissioners offered no comment.
The Lowe’s store would employ 130 people on a 10.2-acre parcel bordered by Clinton and Stuart avenues and Frost Street. Lowe’s is now expected to construct a 141,715-square-foot store, including a 25,000-square-foot garden center. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2014 and finish by late fall 2015.
