Highgrove Synonymous with Classic Elegance


The Highgrove condominium construction will soon be underway. If you are unfamiliar with this project, Highgrove was the first proposed luxury development for Stamford and has paved the way for many other condominiums projects planned in the downtown area. Highgrove helped to establish a new high-end condo market for Stamford.

Robert A.M. Stern is the master architect who designed Highgrove. Stern is Dean of the Yale School of Architecture in New Haven, Connecticut and is also the founder and senior partner of Robert A.M. Stern Architects of New York City.
Stern is also the Author of many highly acclaimed books on architecture and architectural history.

Highgrove is in a superior downtown Stamford location, within walking distance to many wonderful restaurants, the movies and only a few minutes to the train station.

The tower portion of the building will be set back from the neighboring building to maximize the city views and views of Long Island Sound.

"The building itself is based on the kind of classicism that was developed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Kind of abstract and a very elegant kind of classicism. In America it is Federal or Georgian in style, but I was really thinking about the type of work of John Nash or John Sone of London which takes that classical language and really strips it pure in a most elegant way, " said Architect Robert Stern.

An Intimate Entrance

Highgrove will have a belgium block paved motor court with a low lying brick wall, landscaped with shrubbery and hedges. There will be 4 levels of concealed parking and the top portion will be topped with a glass enclosed pool area and landscaped terrace.

"We were able to make this very strong entrance court. When you drive in it is like driving into your house, both welcoming and an intimate space. Since there will be two scales to the building, when you are in the courtyard, you will not sense that giant building behind you. You will just be able to feel the elegant entrance," states Stern.

There will be a 24 hour valet service and a concierge on staff. Amenities to include a health club, two private massage rooms, a wine cellar, billiards room, a great room for entertaining, and a private screening room.

"Highgrove itself is quite unique because we have multiple elevator cars and small lobbies. Just the kind of thing you have in the New York residences from before the Second World War, instead of a long anonymous hallway, with too many doors and too many neighbors. You will have the privacy of your own house in a multiple dwelling which has the benefits of low maintence, physical proximity to downtown and fantastic extra facilities."

The Lobby of Highgrove

Robert A.M. Stern is the master architect who designed Highgrove. The architect has shares his views on the project and on the style of Highgrove.

Individuality Within a Collective

"Our design is completely different than a completely glass enclosed building where it is hard to find your place in the building".

"I like to think of building houses as building dreams for people. Obviously everyone has different dreams, but behind our work at Highgrove and virtually all of our projects is a real intimate knowledge of how people live. All of the interior spaces have a graciousness and flow, zoned with the privacy of bedroom quarters, and a big living room and dining area."

Elevators will open directly into the foyers of each of the 91 tower apartments, and many of the upper-level units will offer views of Long Island Sound.

All of the residences will have at least one balcony or terrace and ceiling heights of at least 10 feet. The building is neo-classic but at the same time has modern conveniences and features such as large room sizes and generous hallways.
