Building and Land Technology (BLT) has announced the engagement of Biederman Redevelopment Ventures (BRV) to assist in the development and activation of the more than 12 acres of public open space in Harbor Point, including Commons Park, Harbor Point Square and the Harbor Point Boardwalk. BRV is a world-class firm, best known for its successful program to revitalize Bryant Park in New York City, and will collaborate with BLT, City officials and community members to expand and refine Harbor Point’s existing slate of public events and recreational offerings in its parks and boardwalks.
“When we first got involved in Harbor Point, we adopted the vision of the city and community of a transformative mixed-use waterfront development providing active public spaces and complementing other neighborhoods of the city. Our development plans have always been designed to invite residents and visitors alike to come and simply enjoy life by the harbor in Stamford,” said Carl R. Kuehner, III, CEO of BLT. “We have made tremendous strides in bringing the vision to life, not only through the successful development of property, but also through thoughtful event programming and encouragement of restaurant and retail growth. It takes more than buildings to make a neighborhood. Dan Biederman and his team share this view, and we are thrilled to have them help us build on the progress we’ve made here at Harbor Point as well as to enhance our connections to Downtown Stamford, Mill River Park and other areas that define our great city.”
