may soon be added to the skyline, providing developer Thomas Rich’s plan to construct a 23-story residential complex on Summer Street musters city zoning approvals.
According to an article in the Stamford Advocate, Rich's company, F.D. Rich, has filed an application to build a 226-apartment high rise called "The Summer House" on a two acre lot on just north of the Bow Tie Majestic Cinema. The project also includes 2,200 square feet of ground floor retail, according to the report.
F.D. Rich was part of the partnership that built the 34-story luxury high-rise condominium on Broad Street, on the city’s west side, completed in 2009. Trump Parc is now Stamford’s tallest building, an honor previously held for decades by the 21-story Landmark Square building.
As the Stamford Advocate article points out, the proposed apartment complex would join several other large-scale residential projects either currently underway or in the planning stages, including the massive 80-acre redevelopment project, which in total includes more than 4,000 new housing units, 400,000 square feet of retail space, offices and two hotels, plus more than 11 acres of new parkland and waterfront trails.
Last month Patch learned that Harbor Point developer hopes to get approval for revised plans to build a hotel consisting of twin 22-story towers at the tip of Washington Boulevard and overlooking Stamford Harbor as part of the redevelopment project. If approved the new hotel buildings would have between 130 and 140 rooms as well as 60 condominium units, according to an earlier report in the Stamford Advocate.
