Zoning officials ended a years-long boycott on Harbor Point approvals Monday night by giving the developer the green light to build a 16-story apartment building.
In a 3-2 vote, Building and Land Technology won approval to build 391 apartments at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Atlantic Street.
BLT’s plans for new apartments in the massive South End development stalled before zoning over the last two years as it wrangled with the city over its decision to tear down a boatyard that existed on 14-acres there in 2011.
For months, officials debated whether they should allow any new projects to move forward while the city settled its case against the developer with either a zoning approval for a new boatyard or a resolution of BLT’s appeal of a cease-and-desist the city issued in 2012.
“We’re pleased that this project has been approved, and we’ll be particularly glad to put our contractors and their people back to work,” said John Freeman, general counsel for BLT. “Harbor Point continues to bring jobs and economic development to Stamford.”
