Two of the St John Apartment Towers are set to be renovated. I think the last one is actually being demolished and replaced. These are unique cylindrical buildings, not all that attractive but I hope they don’t change too much - this early rendering has me very worried.

Renovation plans for Stamford’s St. John Towers move forward

RBS has garnered Zoning Board approval of general plan modifications to build residential buildings on vacant land behind its office building on Washington Boulevard. The plans, which call for constructing two buildings consisting of 456 units and 567 parking spaces, will next go back to city land-use boards with specific outlines if RBS continues to pursue the development. According to tax records, the property’s land alone was appraised at $31.5 million last year. The 12-story office building only takes up a slice of the 4.25-acre site. Part of the approved general outline calls for nearly 40,000 square feet of land along the Mill River to be set aside for public access and the potential expansion of Mill River Park.

Hiya. Visited Stamford yesterday. I don’t actually know what this project is, nor can I find the proper thread for it… but here’s a photo of it. It’s close to 17 Harbor Point Rd. Sorry if there’s already a thread for it.

Yesterday, looking northwest from the corner of Dyke Lane and Elmcroft Road. This is one of the housing clusters in South End.

Stamford is the only place in Connecticut where high-rises are now being built.

apartment occupancy in Stamford is about 97%, among the highest in the country, according to this article:

There are lots of proposals to add apartments to downtown. At 1430 Washington Blvd (apartment bldg known as Westcott, formerly called Newbury Common), on the northern edge of downtown, there is a proposal to convert approximately 12,000 sq. ft. of existing ground floor office space into nineteen additional residential units including four Below Market Rate units. The Urban Redevelopment Commission will sell the parking lot at 66 West Park Place to a buyer that may build 70 residential units over 7-8 stories.

And also a major proposal for a high-rise just north of the old UBS building:

Also, at 860 Canal Street, in South End, a 133,000-square-foot media facility will open in the spring of 2021:

I hope this means the fortress-like mall will soon be shut down and redeveloped into something that fits better into downtown Stamford.
