Building and Land Technology (BLT), developer of Harbor Point, announced several advancements in conjunction with its Harbor Point Gateway Garage, the state-of-the-art parking facility that opened in May at the Stamford Transportation Center.
The first, the opening of a pedestrian bridge spanning Washington Boulevard between Gateway and the train platform, provides multiple benefits for commuters using the Stamford Transportation Center. The bridge was financed in a partnership between BLT and the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CONNDOT).
It promises to both reduce traffic congestion and separate pedestrians from automobile traffic, while providing a link all the way from BLT’s bustling Harbor Point development in the South End through the Gateway mixed-use development directly to the Stamford train station.
Also new at Gateway Garage is the addition of three Zipcars and a Juice Bar Quad electric car charging station.
Ted Ferrarone, chief operating officer of Harbor Point Development, LLC. said the new additions “make the garage, which is already thoroughly modern and convenient, even more so. Stamford depends on both public transportation and the development of pedestrian friendly options and we’re happy to see these new options become available to the public.”
