With Changes, Erbary Place Could Soon See Construction
WaterStone Bank, which owns the Erbary Place condominium development, requested a few plan changes that could increase the viability of the Brookfield project.
A few proposed changes in plans for the Ebary Place condominium development are hoped to increase the viability of the project.
Since March 2012, WaterStone Bank has owned Erbary Place through virtue of a sheriff’s sale. Erbary Place is a seven-lot, single-family condominium subdivision off Davidson Road on Gate Post Road.
Since May, WaterStone has received significant interest in the in the site through its marketing efforts with Point Real Estate Advisors. However, many potential builders have commented on the required size and design of homes, operation of the development, and infrastructure responsibilities.
WaterStone proposed several modifications to the subdivision plan, which the bank believes would help the development fit better with the surrounding neighborhood.
The bank is proposing:
- Shift landscaping responsibilities to the individual unit owners
- Remove a European-style design requirement to allow a variety of homes
- Allow swimming pools on the sites
- Amend the square footage requirements for different home types
The Brookfield Plan Commission on Tuesday approved the bank’s request to modify plans at Erbary Place. The Common Council will ultimately have to vote on the request at its next meeting.
