Today YIMBY has the latest on RXR’s imminent opening of Atlantic Station in Downtown Stamford, Connecticut, but that isn’t the only news out of the city. Yesterday was the groundbreaking event for yet another new rental, by Urban Ready Living ( i.e. URBY), which will be building its fourth iteration, following others in Staten Island, Jersey City, and Harrison, NJ. The development occupies a 4.3-acre lot, and is being built by Ironstate Development Co., in a joint venture partnership with Brookfield Property Group. Stamford Mayor David Martin also participated in the event, and expressed joy for finally filling the space he referred to as the infamous “hole in the ground.”
Downtown Stamford, Connecticut, is about to see doors open for a brand new luxurious 26-story glass high-rise mixed-use building. The new building is coming to 355 Atlantic Street and will be a major addition to Stamford’s downtown skyline.
Greenwich Development Partners is planning to renovate the three-story, 25,000-square-foot office building at 330 Railroad Avenue, in the downtown section of Greenwich, Connecticut. The property will receive extensive renovations on the interior, bringing the building to Class A office status, and will see the exterior cleaned and restored, according to Westfair. Solar panels will also be installed on the rooftop. Greenwich-based Granoff Architects is behind the renovation design, but will also move its headquarters into the building once it’s complete. The architecture firm will lease 17,000 square feet of space, leaving 12,000 square feet on the top floor up for grabs. Occupancy is expected in January of 2017.
