Stamford expands its scrutiny of BLT properties, asking for data on high-rises built like Allure

City officials are expanding their investigation into South End developer Building and Land Technology after a terrace at one of its high-rises collapsed because of structural problems, according to a letter sent by Mayor Caroline Simmons to BLT Co-President Ted Ferrarone. A 20-foot-by-15-foot section of the fifth-floor outdoor terrace at Allure collapsed on Feb. 1, temporarily leaving parts of the parking garage and building amenity spaces underneath the terrace unusable. No one was injured, and there was no damage to personal property. The situation ignited debate among residents and the Stamford Board of Representatives almost immediately; board members called for a broader look into the company’s construction practices, especially given the lion’s share of property that BLT owns in the South End and throughout the city.
