A.P. Construction recently completed the third phase of the Stamford Metro Green Development project which began in late 2015. Metro Green III, an 11-story apartment building, marketed now as Metro Green Terrace, is located one block from the Stamford Metro North Railroad Station at the corner of Henry and Atlantic streets in Stamford, CT.
The $35 million, 223,000-square-foot project features 131 residential units including a diverse mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom units. 58 of the units are market-rate apartments, while the remaining 73 units are affordable rentals. Amenities include a public plaza with a streetscape and private courtyard with a dog play area, playground, and a community garden.
The project also included the addition of four levels of precast concrete to the existing parking garage, adding 229 new parking spaces to the current 73, totaling out to 302 spaces. Both the apartment building and parking garage were worked on concurrently.
Metro Green III was awarded LEED for Homes Gold certification, the Green Building Council’s second-highest rating, and is considered a key initiative of the Stamford 2030 District, a community of high-efficiency buildings in Downtown Stamford that are to designed to reduce energy and water consumption and reduce emissions from transportation. Metro Green I apartments became Stamford’s first environmentally friendly affordable housing complex, back in the fall of 2009 and is LEED Gold certified.
“The developers are very dedicated to sustainable construction and buildings that enhance communities and the lives of people within the communities. This project exemplifies the vision of the developers and is a model for the current trend toward urban lifestyle,” said Joe Orlando, Project Director of A.P. Construction Company.
With the completion of Metro Green III, A.P. Construction has completed over 550 multifamily units in the last five years. Projects have ranged from large mixed-use developments to smaller single structure projects in both urban and suburban locations.
