Danbury approves Mercedes-Benz dealership at gateway of west side high-end auto corridor


DANBURY – City planners have approved blueprints for a $7 million Mercedes-Benz showroom and service center at the gateway of an emerging high-end auto corridor on the city’s west side.

“We have certainly discussed it at length,” said Arnold Finaldi, chairman of the city’s Planning Commission, shortly before the board approved the dealership last week. “Good luck to the applicant with your project.”

The approval means Curry Automotive can begin work to clear a 2.5-acre construction materials storage lot at Miry Brook and Sugar Hollow roads — a property city leaders have described as a gateway for a corridor of high-end automotive uses that stretches from the eastern border of the Danbury Fair mall south along the perimeter of Danbury Municipal Airport.

“I want to be there the day they knock down that concrete bunker on the site,” Finaldi said half-seriously after the approval vote on Wednesday, referring to the highly visible site that some leaders considered an eyesore.
