Columbus Park West, Stamford

This site is adjacent to Columbus Park in Stamford. The concept progressed to a preliminary design and site loading study. Two building towers were modeled on the computer. One is an apartment building of 450 units and the other is a hotel of 100 rooms, with meeting/ convention amenities.

The hotel is placed on the Washington Blvd. side, closest to Stamford city hall. The apartment building is on the northern side facing the corner that looks into Columbus Park. A four-story base supports the towers with a single story of retail use at the street.

Brick with limestone accents is the material of choice for the exterior. The massing and building shapes emulate traditional pre-war architecture.
