In a perfect world, there would be underground rail under Washington Blvd, going all the way down to Harbor Point. Washington Blvd also goes directly under the Stamford train station (Metro North, Amtrak), too, so a stop there would be perfect. That would really propel development lol. But I don't think Stamford would qualify for such a hell-of-a project.

This is my favorite! That building will look awesome!

Another office building is currently under construction on Washington Boulevard near the train station. The parking garage looks finished, so I guess it will not be too long before they will start building the high-rise.

I've heard rumors that UBS and RBS will not be in Stamford for the long haul. Granted, its just rumors, but if those two buildings suddenly become vacant, I imagine the economics of some of these projects may change dramatically.

AntonioR, your picture earlier of the apt house under construction is not Summer House, but Park Square West 2, sister of Park Square across the street, to be joined by a third Park Square by Curley's the all night diner on Park Place.

Coming to this restaurant and movie block on lower Summer will indeed be Summer House, a 22 story apt. bld. from Tom Rich. Construction has just begun.

Traffic will be impossible, but authorities assure that the T will be heavy pedestrian. Mini Manhattan.

Actually, to me White Plains feels like a bigger/denser city.

White Plains has a population of 56k. However, during a weekday, the number skyrockets to 200k.
