Binswanger and Cushman & Wakefield market 14-acre Peninsula at Harbor Point

August 21, 2020 - Connecticut

Stamford, CT Cushman & Wakefield and Binswanger have been named to market Peninsula at Harbor Point, a 14-acre waterfront development opportunity within a master-planned, mixed-use community. The site is available immediately for the development of up to 1 million s/f and has an existing 500,000 s/f office space available for use adjacent to the site.

A Cushman & Wakefield team of Gary Greenspan and Steve Baker, in partnership with Jeff Binswanger and James Kilcourse of Binswanger, will lead marketing efforts on behalf of the owner and developer of the dynamic Harbor Point community, Building and Land Technology (BLT).

“Harbor Point, which is one of the largest redevelopment projects in the nation, continues to yield tremendous opportunity and presents an ideal setting for a multitude of users, including life sciences, medical/research, a corporate headquarters of the future or even an e-sports arena,” said Greenspan. “Sitting on Long Island Sound, this rare site offers users the ability to completely customize the design by building ground-up while simultaneously providing occupiable office space.” 

Harbor Point is a 100-acre mixed-use, master-planned, waterfront community located immediately south of Stamford CBD. The active and transit-oriented community boasts access to I-95 and Long Island Sound, in addition to the Stamford Transportation Center, a major terminal serving passengers on Metro-North Railroad’s New Haven Line, Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor and Shore Line East, as well as Greyhound, Peter Pan and CT transit buses. Located 45 minutes by train from Manhattan or two hours from Boston, Harbor Point also has a free trolley system that connects the Peninsula to the rest of Harbor Point and downtown. Future transportation options may include ferry access and a helipad for alternative access from New York City and Long Island.

“Connecticut offers a plethora of advantages that corporations – large and small – recognize as beneficial to their bottom line, and we have what it takes to help them achieve their success,” said governor Ned Lamont. “Stamford’s desirable geographic location coupled with the revitalization that’s taken place in the South End presents boundless economic potential for those organizations who can recognize it.”

“Stamford continues to attract businesses and residents because our City offers the services and convenience the future workforce is looking for,” said mayor David Martin. “Many long-term residents of Stamford can remember when the South End was one of the most depressed areas of our city but now it stands out as a shining example of what’s possible in Stamford. The Peninsula at Harbor Point provides many of the benefits of living in a modern city building off of the economic growth in our region.”

“We have been rapidly developing Harbor Point for the last 12 years, transforming the former industrial area into a vibrant live-work-play master planned community and creating a thriving ecosystem for residents and businesses,” said Carl Kuehner, chairman of BLT. 

“We are excited to see this premier site, the final piece of the puzzle for Harbor Point, come to life.”

Harbor Point has more than 25 acres of public parks, providing limitless opportunities to mix business with pleasure. The live-work-play community includes more than 3,400 new apartments with an additional 600+ underway, office spaces, restaurants, health and wellness shops, fitness studios, marinas and waterfront activities as well as a mile-long waterfront boardwalk.
