Hope Street Apartments

Montagno Construction served as general contractor in the construction of this 61,000 sf, 4-story multi-family, mixed use development within the city of Stamford. The top three floors contain 88 one- and two-bedroom super-insulated apartments, designed to be carbon neutral and Energy Star Rated. The first floor features 2,200 square feet of retail and covered parking on grade.

Construction is wood framed over a steel and concrete deck. Two pre-bid borings did not reveal what we discovered during excavation – old foundations with rebar, old pilings below them, abandoned car chassis, 3 or 4 vehicle engines, and more – over 6 million pounds that had to be processed, separated, and hauled off site. The remaining fill and substrate had to be compacted and tested repeatedly to ready the earth for the designed piles, footings, and foundation.

Our proactive project management mitigated the impact of these unforeseen conditions on the project’s schedule.

“[We have] used Montagno on two apartment building construction projects as GC; excellent GC.”
