BLT has plenty in store for 80-acre Stamford Harbor.

Building and Land Technology, the developer of the 80-acre mixed-use project on the west branch of Stamford Harbor has leased two stores at Harbor Point to Go Green Dry Cleaners, a 100% eco friendly full service dry cleaner.

The shops will be at Yale & Towne, adjacent to the fully leased Lofts apartment community and across from Fairway Market, and on the Westside of the development at Harbor Point Square, across from the 101 Park Place rental residences.

While Go Green Dry Cleaners has been in business for 11 years, they recently converted to a green earth cleaning process which completely avoids the use of Perc, a toxic air contaminant used by 85% of cleaners today. With green earth dry cleaning there is nothing that pollutes the air, water or soil. Go Green Dry Cleaners also uses biodegradable garment bags and hangers to further support the environment. Building and Land Technology CEO, Carl R. Kuehner, III said the tremendous success of The Lofts and 101 Park Place, coupled with the delivery later this year of an additional 329 apartment homes, has created a real need for neighborhood retail and services in the South End.

Kuehner commented, "I'm pleased that we have been able to attract stores like Go Green Dry Cleaners and Fairway Market that provide exceptional products and support our long term goals for Harbor Point."

Recognizing an opportunity that stood silent for decades, Harbor Point includes six million square feet of mixed-use development: 85% residential (4,000 residential units, 10% of which is affordable housing); 15% commercial, including office buildings, Fairway Market, a waterfront hotel, restaurants and a full-service marina; more than 11 acres of parks and public space; the Waterside School; and publicly accessible waterfront access.

Harbor Point is a transit-oriented development (TED), situated a ten-minute walk from the Stamford Transportation Center, and includes improved street and pedestrian areas. As a Gold Certified LEED-ND development, Harbor Point also leads the way in environmental design and construction.

A second-generation real estate development company, Connecticut-based Building and Land Technology has completed ventures worth more than $3 billion, including over four million square feet of commercial development and 4,500+ residential units.

BLT trophy properties host the headquarters for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Gen Re, GE Commercial Finance, Diageo, GE Real Estate, Xerox, GE Energy Financial Services, IMS Health, Hewitt, Cornell University Veterinary Specialists, Design Within Reach and Louis Dreyfus Highbridge Energy.
