Oak Park Redevelopment

New community in Stamford to meet 21st century needs

Located on the East Side of Stamford, Connecticut, Oak Park is a moderate-rent family community managed by Charter Oak Communities (the Housing Authority of Stamford). It currently consists of 168 garden-style units in 27 buildings, originally constructed in 1947 for World War II veterans. Some elements, such as electrical panels, are original and no longer meet code. Remediation and repair were considered for flooring supports and roofs, but it was determined that demolition and new construction would be the most efficient and cost-effective solution.

Current Oak Park residents were involved in the planning of the new neighborhood, along with Rippowam Corporation, the development arm of Charter Oak Communities, and the design team of Kenneth Boroson Architects, Torti Gallas + Partners, Redniss & Mead and TPA Design.
