Developer proposes 16 townhouses where a blighted property once stood in Hampden

A local developer has proposed constructing a four-building, 16-unit townhouse complex on the lot next to the Dollar General store in Hampden where a blighted house once stood. 

The Hampden Planning Board will consider the proposal at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the town office at 106 Western Ave.

It’s the latest proposal in the Bangor area for new housing units as the region sees demand rise for new housing amid rising real estate prices that have boxed many buyers out of the market.

NKSE Investment LLC purchased the 2.1-acre property at 676 Main Road North for $250,000 from James W. Butler Jr. of Bangor in late January and submitted the application for the townhouses in March.  

Each of the four buildings would be 72 by 30 feet and house four two-story, two-bedroom units, according to plans submitted to the town office. The entrance to the complex would be through the Dollar General parking lot and not directly onto Main Road North, which is also Route 1A.
