JLL announced today that it has arranged $97.5 million in financing for the development of the second phase of Atlantic Station, a luxury mixed-use residential and retail property in downtown Stamford, Connecticut.
JLL worked exclusively on behalf of the developer, RXR Realty, to secure the floating-rate construction loan through Bank OZK. The development of the second phase of Atlantic Station follows the success of the first phase, which consists of 325 luxury rental units along with 321 on-site, structured parking spaces and 16,000 square feet of retail. The first phase was delivered in January 2018 and experienced strong leasing velocity due to heavy demand for luxury rental units in the area.
The 26-story second phase of the Atlantic Station project will consist of 325 condo-quality units, approximately 48,000 square feet of retail and a 534-space structured parking garage. The retail component is 100 percent pre-leased to three tenants: The Learning Experience, Work Well Win and Dogtopia. In addition to the sweeping views and brand-new construction, the amenity package for Phase II includes a 24-hour staffed lobby, a fitness center with floor-to-ceiling glass, resident lounge, outdoor landscaped deck and an elevated swimming pool deck. Units will feature nine-foot ceilings, balconies, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, and in-unit washers and dryers. Atlantic Station Phase I and Phase II are located at 355 Atlantic Street and 405 Atlantic Street, respectively. The development is within walking distance to the Stamford Transportation Center, which provides access to New York’s Grand Central Station within 45 minutes via the Metro-North Railroad as well as Amtrak and ConnDOT for connectivity to regional destinations such as New Haven, Boston, Washington, D.C. and New Jersey. In addition, the development is within a half mile of Interstate 95 and near a Harbor Trolley stop for local transportation. Completion is expected in 2021.
