Concrete and URBY move forward: Stamford continues to fill in the gap with an Urban oasis

10 Feb 2021

Stamford Urby, the 4th member of the family to be up and running, moves forward in construction jumping in phase two. The 9 building blocks fill the gaps historically and architecturally as well as bringing more diverse life into the center of town.

Urban Oasis

Located in the heart of the city, the triangular site on the heavy trafficked corner of Tresser Boulevard and Greyrock place, is surrounded by large scale office buildings and a shopping center. Stamford Urby, raising on the main corner of the road, occupies a site that stood empty for 3 decades and was therefore locally known as the “hole in the ground”. The first phase of the complex is finished, consisting out of 465 rental apartments, jumping to phase two will add 176 units, a 12Ft big clock with a unique clock-movie created by artist Maarten Baas and much more.

URBY's focus on experience and community is highlighted once again, bridging between the public and the private in different areas of the complex. A human scale atmosphere is created thanks to the diverse volumes of the buildings and the addition of a landscaped zone with public seating. The public plaza and cafe terrace in front of the building provides an intimate covered outdoor space and creates a connection towards the landscaped courtyard. In the heart of the complex, a communal court is designed as an urban oasis, as a counter weight to the busy roads and city center. The court comprehends a round shaped gym pavilion, a rooftop pool and landscaped stairs serving as stage for outdoor communal events, movies and performances. These areas are connected to the main entrance via the lush bamboo garden designed by Bas Smets. 

Stamford Urby apartments are available in S, M and L. Compact in size to keep monthly rates down, all apartments feel relatively large and spacious thanks to the clever use of the available square footage, big windows and bright lighting plans. With plenty of built-in storage space and fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms, Urby apartments set a new standard in ready-to-move-in rental housing.
