At long last, a housing development planned for Stamford’s notorious “hole in the ground” appears primed to move forward. Groundbreaking for Urby, an 11-building residential complex is scheduled for Oct. 3, more than three years after co-developers F.D. Rich Co. and Ironstate Development Co. were granted approval from the city’s zoning board, according to the Stamford Advocate. The project calls for a total of 648 units to be built in two phases on the site at Tresser Boulevard and Greyrock Place, which earned its nickname thanks to the 4.3-acre pit that’s been there for over two decades. [Stamford Advocate]
