Transportation Center Redevelopment in Stamford by Studio V Architecture

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

Article source: Studio V Architecture

STUDIO V Architecture’s design for the Stamford Transportation Center and surrounding area was chosen the preferred scheme in a $500 million redevelopment competition put forth by the Connecticut Department of Transportation. Stamford’s station has grown to become the second largest in the region after Grand Central Terminal, rendering its current disjointed infrastructure and surrounding architecture obsolete. STUDIO V teamed with developer Stamford Manhattan Development Ventures (SMDV) to transform this traffic-congested station into a dramatic new 24-hour community that reconnects Downtown Stamford to the South End and the city’s waterfront.
