Stamford investigating 8 BLT properties, mayor asks for safety records after Allure high-rise patio collapse

A week after Mayor Caroline Simmons first announced that city-hired engineers would expand their investigation into Harbor Point developer Building and Land Technology, her administration laid out a sharper focus for its inquiry. Engineers hired by the city will examine eight additional Harbor Point properties built by the South End’s biggest developer as part of the city’s growing efforts to understand a partial terrace collapse at a BLT high-rise in February, she said. Simmons on March 18 announced in a letter to BLT Co-President Ted Ferrarone the city and its engineers would expand their investigation into properties built by the developer. Though engineers had spent weeks eyeing structural deficiencies at Allure, the mayor pointed out “an additional specific complaint shared by a resident regarding retrofits made at the Escape property.”
