Temporary Boatyard Planned for Stamford, CT
March 5, 2012
According to the Stamford Advocate, the developer of Harbor Point has announced plans to provide a temporary boat-service facility that will be spread across several of its properties along the east and west branches of Stamford Harbor.
The announcement was apparently made in response to calls by the city and boating community to re-establish a working boatyard in the South End, where the former Brewer facility was demolished in January.
A temporary marina and service operation in the northwest portion of the former boatyard is expected to be running in the next 60 days, and will include a 60- to 70-ton TraveLift. A fuel station, however, will not be available on site. Slips will be available at several locations on both sides of the South End peninsula, as well as Waterside.
The plan aims to provide the boating community with a temporary solution as the developer works on an estimated $20 million remediation effort on the site.
