Development—Stamford, Connecticut

Metro Green Residences

Jonathan Rose Companies and Malkin Properties have joined together to develop Metro Green Residences, the second phase of a premier mixed-income, transit-oriented community that provides high-quality, environmentally-friendly housing in the City of Stamford and serves as a model for smart growth development in the state. The seven-story newly constructed building includes a diverse mix of one, two, and three bedroom units.

Metro Green Residences is located one block from the Metro North Stamford Transportation Center, at the corner of Atlantic Street and Henry Street. The building is the second phase of Metro Green Residential, recipient of LEED Neighborhood Development Gold certification that includes an eventual 255 mixed-income residences, a new public plaza, new streetscape with custom street light fixtures, new sidewalks and curbside plantings, as well as a private courtyard and meditative labyrinth serving all the residential units on the site. The first phase, Metro Green Apartments, was completed in 2009. The site's future phases include a 17-story, “best in class” LEED Platinum candidate office tower, to be developed by Malkin Properties.

Environmentally responsible features at Metro Green Residences include a rainwater harvesting system, high-performance building envelope, energy-efficient mechanical systems, as well as green building materials including recycled and low-VOC components. The 61,268 square foot building was designed by Perkins Eastman Architects to exceed the Enterprise Green Communities Guidelines and is seeking LEED New Construction Gold certification.
