Here’s the organization’s announcement:

Over the years, the role of realtor associations has changed for the better — with a greater focus on community outreach. With that in mind, our new office space is located in the heart of beautiful, downtown Darien. On Tuesday, Sept. 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. we will be hosting an open house for our community — and  our realtors — at our new office space, 5 Brook St., Suite 2-D.

Only ‘Retail’ Side of Post Office in Latest Downtown Redevelopment Proposal

The Corbin Drive/Post Road redevelopment proposal would not include the back-office operations of the present Darien Post Office — just the public, front-end “retail” side of it in a 2,500-square-foot space, the Planning & Zoning Commission was told Tuesday. “We’re proposing to eliminate the distribution center for the Post Office, and have that Post Office move that elsewhere,” said David Genovese, principal (with his father, Rocco Genovese) at Baywater Properties, which has partnered with developer Penny Glassmeyer to propose redevelopment of the downtown block between the Post Road, Corbin Drive and Interstate 95. “We would want to include the retail [part of the] Post Office to serve residents in downtown Darien,” he continued. “So we’re proposing a 2,500-square-foot Post Office retail facility, which would be located probably about where it is today.” Genovese has said in the past that fitting in the non-“retail” parts of the Post Office, with space for storage, sorting and parking for delivery vehicles — would be difficult on the site, but if they couldn’t stay downtown, he would try to help find another location for those operations.
