More people can now call Downtown Stamford Home. After almost a year of construction, the opening of The Moderne, a new apartment building at 163 Franklin Street, was celebrated by a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday.
The 58-unit complex has a lot to offer its residents.
“The unit finishes are hardwood floors, have granite countertops,” says Randy Salvatore, Owner of RMS Companies. “And the amenities we have a movie theatre, we have an exercise room, we have a great rooftop lounge, we have a great rooftop lounge, we have a cappuccino bar on the first floor so we tried to create almost like a hotel feeling here.”
Salvatore says The Moderne officially opened its doors to tenants on September 1 and has been well received.
“We have 31 of the 58 units rented, so over 50 percent in about four weeks,” he says.
And of course, location is key.
“Tenants today; they want everything at their fingertips, they want to be able to walk out after they come home from a long day and be able to walk down and get a casual dinner, or get a cup of coffee on the weekend, or to go see a movie and so the downtown provides all of those different experiences.”
