A city of sea-lovers has influenced the revival of Stamford’s Waterside neighborhood, which starts at the Old Greenwich border and extends along Stamford Harbor. Historically, Waterside has been a neighborhood of single- and multi-family homes and small industrial employers vital to the city, home to families who have loved these quiet streets for many generations. While this character still remains, the area has recently experienced revitalization along the harbor, with the development of luxury condominiums, apartment complexes, marinas and upscale restaurants.
Harbor Landing at 28 Southfield Ave is the newest apartment complex, offering the same luxury look and feel that you can find in Harbor Point, just across the harbor. Amenities include a pool and sundeck with grills and fire pits, outdoor TV lounge, fitness center and 24-hour concierge. Apartments range from studios to 2-bedroom layouts, and offer pet-friendly or pet-free/smoke-free options. Wake up to sunrise over the water! www.hlandingapts.com
Along the harbor on Southfield Avenue you can also find Baypointe, with luxury rental apartments, full amenities, and a free Trolley shuttle to downtown or Stamford’s Transportation Center with Metro North and Amtrak train lines. You can stroll along the harbor boardwalk to reach the area’s restaurants, marinas and water taxi to Harbor Point. www.baypointestamford.com. WE LOVE THIS ONE!
TGM Anchor Point is another elegant pet-friendly choice, with 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, a 2-level fitness center and full amenities. Anchor Point has its own marina which offers 72 deep water boat slips for seasonal and transient rental and convenient access to Long Island Sound. Water-lovers welcome! www.tgmanchorpoint.com
To take full advantage of this beautiful location, dine along the water at Prime, where the raw oyster bar and aged steak give new meaning to the term “surf and turf.” You can even dock your boat at their boat slips and then enjoy your meal overlooking the waters of the harbor. Or enjoy the Half Full Brewery or Crabshell at Stamford Landing, with a dockside bar and live music on the boardwalk. There is also an event venue at The Loading Dock, a luxurious place for weddings or other special events.
For boat owners, Waterside offers several marinas and transient boat slips, a water taxi between Harbor Landing and Harbor Point, and the famous Hinckley Yacht Services full-service boatyard. Nothing has been left out! Come explore Stamford’s Waterside!
