Urby luxury apartments opens in downtown Stamford

Posted: Updated:

Luxury apartments have opened in downtown Stamford, replacing a giant hole in the ground after 20 years.

The Urby Stamford took two years of construction and building owners are hoping to make it a new home for some city residents.

The ground was an eyesore in the downtown area for 20 years until the land was purchased by the developer. 

General manager, Jason Pennypacker says Urby Stamford is all about communal living.

"We wanted to give residents obviously a place to come and enjoy their living space but also so many communal spaces," Pennypacker says.

Cafe Roost is a Darien-based restaurant opening a leased space in the Urby building. There are 465 rooms available for rent starting Nov. 1.
This is the fourth Urby development in the country and first in the state.
