At press deadline for the Summer 2020 issue
of PortWorks, the Port was preparing to
finalize the sale of two of its nine remaining port
parcels in the Discovery Ridge development.
One of the two parcels to be sold is where the
Rosauers fuel station is located; the other is
being readied for a Brewed Awakenings drivethrough
coffee kiosk. Purchaser of the fuel
station and coffee kiosk is RFC3 LLC, led by
Dean Maldonado.

The seven remaining Port-owned parcels
encompass approximately 6 acres immediately
south of the Rosauers grocery store. All lots
are zoned for commercial/retail opportunities.
The Port plans to build to-suit and offer flexible
lease terms.

The Port will use sales proceeds to off-set
the cost of stubbing utilities to its remaining
seven parcels.

Brent Grening, CEO for the Port of Ridgefield,
said the Port is optimistic the parcels will be
of interest to businesses wishing to locate in
proximity to highly-trafficked Rosauers and
several large housing developments.

“Professional and other services that hope to
capitalize on the opportunity to draw customers
from nearby homes and residents making trips
to the grocery store should be attracted to this
site,” Grening said.

The Port purchased the 30-acre Discovery
Ridge site in 2010, then partnered with the
City of Ridgefield and private developer FDM
Development to bring the grocery anchored
retail site to life.
