Last week was an exciting and eventful week for Kenneth Boroson Architects and RMS Companies.  Two of the projects we have teamed together on, Parkside City Crossing in New Haven, CT and Stratus on Hudson in Yonkers, NY, celebrated ceremonial ribbon cuttings.  Ground was also informally broken on the next phase of the City Crossing project on Congress Avenue in New Haven.  These three projects combined create a total of 274 rental apartments in newly constructed buildings.



Parkside City Crossing is a four-story building containing 110 apartments.  Running the length of Gold Street and bordering Amistad Park, the building contains resident amenity spaces, a small retail space, garage and surface parking, and an outdoor dog park for residents.  This project is the first completed part of New Haven’s multi-year, multi-phase Hill-to-Downtown Community Plan to reconnect the Hill neighborhood to the downtown area.  We joined RMS Companies, Mayor Toni Harp, and other City and State officials to open this exciting new development last Thursday.  Photos of the speakers are above.  More coverage on the Parkside City Crossing ribbon cutting can be found here, here, and here.  Additional information on the project can be found in our blog.  Pictures of the completed amenity spaces and model unit are below.





Stratus on Hudson removes a negative element from the Warburton Avenue neighborhood by making use of a site where another developer was not able to complete a project over twenty years ago.  This former “hole in the ground” is now home to 74 luxury apartments with sweeping views of the Hudson River and convenient access to the Metro-North railway.  The Mayor, majority leader of the City Council and other city officials joined RMS Companies to celebrate the opening of this milestone development last Tuesday.  More coverage on the Stratus on Hudson ribbon cutting can be found here, here, and here.  Additional information on the project can be found in our blog.

The next phase of the City Crossing project, informally known as Parcel 9, is located on a lot where Congress Avenue meets Washington Avenue a few steps away from Parkside City Crossing.  This new 6 story building will contain 90 apartments, resident amenity spaces, parking, and an outdoor dog park for residents.  At last Thursday’s festivities, Randy Salvatore of RMS Companies mentioned that the Parcel 10 project, across the street at the corner of Washington Avenue and Lafayette Street, will break ground in 60 days.  This six-story project will feature 104 apartments with similar amenity provisions as Parcel 9.  More information about both parcels can be found in our blog.  Foundation work has started for Parcel 9 and photos of the current progress are below.  We are excited to see these two projects move forward.
