Stamford Urby brings new residential vibe to the city’s downtown

“This is a project that has been a long time in the making,” said Dave Barry, founder and CEO of Urby, which opened a new apartment community in downtown Stamford that reanimated a once-dreary section of the city.

“Before we even got involved, the area was infamously called ‘the hole in the ground’ in Stamford because they had knocked a project down there previously and it sat vacant and derelict for a long time,” Barry added.

The “hole in the ground” was once found at 1 Greyrock Place, a prime parcel across the street from the Stamford Center Mall. Designed by the architecture firm Concrete Amsterdam, best known for its cutting-edge style in citizenM boutique hotel chain, Urby consists of 11 connected buildings of varying heights arranged around a central lush green courtyard. At the moment, 456 units are ready ahead of the completion of the second phase of construction, which also includes a dog run, a clocktower, expanded bike storage, and additional outdoor space.
