CVS opens 4th Fairfield pharmacy at Kings Crossing
The town's fourth CVS pharmacy has opened in the new Kings Crossing shopping center.
The pharmacy opening took place without a lot of fanfare this week, just yellow and red flags flying from the building's roof at 1770 Kings Highway to let shoppers know.
The center's anchor store, a Whole Foods Market, opened earlier this summer.
Other commercial tenants slated for the shopping center, at Kings Highway's intersection with Grasmere Avenue, is a smaller, standalone building that will house a Chase Bank branch, a PETCO store, a Chipotle Grill and a Five Guys burger restaurant, which won Town Plan and Zoning Commission approval this week.
In a second bid for approval, Five Guys applicant secured the TPZ's OK after winning a waiver of parking requirements from the Zoning Board of Appeals. An earlier attempt to win TPZ approval was rebuffed because the commission ruled the restaurant was 13 parking spaces short of the number set by town parking regulations.
The applicant's lawyer, William Fitzpatrick, had argued the developer should receive credit for those spaces because it lost 75 parking spaces when the shopping center was redesigned to include a shared driveway with Home Depot. Zoning regulations allow the commission to grant such concessions when a shared driveway is built for abutting businesses.
