7 Water Street, Mystic, CT
Indigo was retained by Pizzetta to provide civil engineering design and local permitting services to construct a 400 square foot addition to the existing historical building, conduct extensive interior renovations, expand the patio dining area and have seasonal outdoor entertainment approved. The site is located on Water Street (CT Route 215) in the historic Mystic waterfront district. Local approvals included a Special Permit to expand the patio and allow for a live band several nights per week, historic district commission approval for the addition to the existing historical building, and the planning commission for site plan approval. Challenges included shallow ledge, proximity to property lines, preserving the historical nature of the building, and public reception. With the granted approvals, Pizzetta was able to nearly double the interior seating capacity, install a new state-of-the-art kitchen, construct a brand new bar, double the patio seating capacity, and provide live outdoor entertainment for years to come.
