The City of Groton seeks proposals for the purchase of 108 Thames Street and 0 Broad Street, two adjacent parcels situated within the Waterfront Business Residence (WBR) zoning district. Proposals will be accepted for the purchase of each parcel as separate properties or as one combined offer.
Proposals are due 3pm, July 29, 2019 with a final closing date subject to negotiation. See Section VII.A Submission & Schedule.
A two story single family home is situated upon 108 Thames Street (0.14 AC) and is a contributing property to the Groton Bank National Historic District. The home is also referred to as the Mother Anna Warner Bailey House. More information about ‘Ma Bailey’ is provided on the back cover of this RFP.
It is the City’s ideal outcome to see the home on 108 Thames Street renovated, restoring it to reflect the historic architectural style with appropriate details, fenestrations and materials.
0 Broad Street (0.10 AC) is vacant, consisting primarily of an open lawn area. It slopes down east to west, toward 108 Thames Street.
The properties may be reused for any use allowed under current zoning. Restrictions may be placed upon 108 Thames Street to ensure restoration of the building meets applicable historic design standards. This will be negotiated at time of property sale.
