The 50-unit Metro Green Apartments, Connecticut's foremost transit oriented affordable housing community, is a cornerstone of Stamford's plan to advance climate prosperity as a green model for the state and for the region.

Developed in a smart growth location, Metro Green Apartments is located one block from the Metro North Stamford Railroad Station on Henry Street between Atlantic Street and Washington Boulevard. Metro Green Apartments is the first phase of Metro Green Residential, which has received LEED Neighborhood Development Gold certification that includes 238 mixed-income residences on a mixed-use, transit oriented site.

Metro Green Apartments integrates environmentally responsible features that enhance the urban environment, promote better health for residents, and create energy efficiencies that will result in cost savings. Designed by Perkins Eastman Architects to exceed the Enterprise Green Communities Guidelines, the new 52,565 square foot building has also received LEED New Construction Gold certification.

Public amenities of the project include a new public plaza featuring a rain-garden streetscape with custom street light fixtures, new sidewalks and curb side planting. Other environmentally responsible features of Metro Green Apartments include a rainwater harvesting system, high-performance building envelope, energy-efficient mechanical systems, as well as green building materials with recycled locally sourced and low-VOC


In addition to the Jonathan Rose Companies and Malkin Properties Metro Green Residential joint venture, Metro Green will feature a 350,000 square foot, 17-story, “best in class” LEED Platinum candidate office tower and numerous public improvements.
