With a desirable location in Stamford’s Harbor Point, The Hazel Stamford already provides residents with a vibrant lifestyle boosted by its proximity to shopping, dining, nightlife, entertainment and transportation. The development team has taken activity-rich living  one step further with the recent debut of indoor amenities that provide plentiful social and recreational opportunities at the  seven-story building design by Newman Architects.

Development partners Fields Grade and Alpine Residential are now providing a first look at the completed amenities which include a lounge with co-working space and a demonstration kitchen, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.   Conveniences include a package room, bike storage, and an enclosed parking garage with electric vehicle charging stations.  Another unique amenity at The Hazel is TULU, an on-demand smart rental store for high-quality household and lifestyle products.

The Hazel Stamford has also introduced Hudson Table to the community-at-large. Hudson Table is a culinary studio designed to serve as an alternative form of recreation through cooking demonstrations and hands-on classes.  The Hazel Stamford location also features a café open five days a week with a menu of freshly made breakfast and lunch items, local coffee, and prepared grab-and-go-meals created by Hudson Table’s chefs.

“While activity is certainly buzzing outside The Hazel, we wanted to create thoughtful indoor spaces that enhanced our residents’ lifestyles,” said James Caulfield, a Fields Grade partner.  “We’re also excited to welcome Hudson Table to The Hazel, providing residents direct access to an interactive cooking and dining experience that is unique in the Stamford market.”

While the indoor amenities are already being enjoyed by residents at The Hazel Stamford, the building also provides sought-after outdoor recreational areas during warmer weather, including a landscaped rooftop terrace with barbecues and a covered dining area, and a roof deck pool with pergola seating areas and chaise loungers. 

These social spaces perfectly pair with The Hazel’s location at 44 John Street in Stamford’s Harbor Point, a 322-acre peninsula on Long Island Sound, places residents in the heart of a lively community where a relaxed, waterfront vibe mixes with urban energy.  Restaurants run the gamut of culinary styles, from surf and turf at Prime, authentic Italian cuisine at Fortina, and a Mexican-inspired menu at Mexicue to all-natural, sustainable burgers and salads at Bareburger’s, seafood at the waterfront Crab Shell, and elevated comfort food and drinks at the contemporary gastropub and rooftop bar, Sign of the Whale. The waterfront bustles with boaters and programmed events in the summertime, including Pilates on the Boardwalk, Flow Yoga in the Courtyard, live music in Commons Park, and more. At the base of the peninsula, Kosciuszko Park has a looped walking trail, ball fields and a playground.

 Downtown Stamford is also well-known for its dynamic offering of culture and arts, shopping, dining and nightlife.  Signature events include Restaurant Week, concerts such as the hugely popular Alive at Five, outdoor fitness classes and more.  The heart of the Fairfield County city, Downtown Stamford boasts over 80 dining establishments, boutique and brand name shopping, movie theatres, two musical performance venues, art galleries and much more.

The Hazel’s commuter friendly location is enhanced by its proximity to the Stamford Train Station, which offers Metro North and Amtrak rail service, and Interstate 95 and Route 1.

The Hazel offers a mix of 183 studio and one-bedroom homes.   The building features well-thought-out and versatile floorplans lined with designer interior features including nine-foot-plus ceilings, luxury plank flooring, custom modular closets, complimentary window treatments, in-home washer and dryer and smart lock entry. Gourmet kitchens are outfitted with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, soft-close cabinetry, full-height backsplashes, and under-cabinet lighting, while spa-like baths are lavishly appointed.

Monthly rents for the well-appointed residences start from the low-$2,000s and are being offered with Grand Opening incentives that include two months free rent.

The Hazel’s leasing program and management is being professionally conducted by the developer’s affiliated management company, South Oxford Management.
