REDDING — The federal Department of Transportation will not give Georgetown Land Development Company — which is planning the transformation of the old Gilbert & Bennett wire factory — a $28 million grant to build the train station that is a key component of the development.

The development, as planned, would convert the factory site into a multi-million dollar mixed-use development of apartments, commercial and office space.

A train station on the Danbury-to-Norwalk Metro-North line at the development site was one of the essential elements of the transit-oriented development.
