A developer got Planning Commission support for 21 houses on a 3.54-acre vacant infill site near Greenfield and Elliot roads despite concerns about density and loss of privacy from residents whose homes abut to the property line.

Vasari Asset Management’s proposed Cottage Lane project is scheduled to go before Town Council for final approval on Oct. 19. The company’s principals are a Gilbert father-and-son team, Norm Nicholls, president of Fulton Homes, and Brian Nicholls.

“Being able to see the mountains over the fence is a great thing as long as you can’t see the weeds below it,” Commission Chairman Carl Bloomfield said last week. “But we drive by Greenfield and we see the weeds in there and we see it’s been an empty pocket for a long time.”

Bloomfield added that he knows the Nicholls and worked for Norm Nicholls as an engineer many years ago and can attest to the quality of his projects.


“I really appreciate the opportunity to be here tonight and to present what we think is a really cool infill project for the town called Cottage Lane,” said Chris Webb, project management director for Rose Law Group, which represented Vasari on the project. “Cottage Lane will be a high-quality development from a great development team that truly is second to none here in the Valley.”
