Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, Mayor Mike Pavia and U.S. Rep. Jim Himes were on hand for a May 30 ribbon cutting.
At deadline, most units were leased in the seven-story building, with 40 units designated for households with incomes ranging from 25 percent to 60 percent of the area's median income, and 10 more at market rates.
Metro Green Residences was designed by the Stamford office of Perkins Eastman Architects. Jonathan Rose Cos. and Malkin Properties are seeing LEED Gold certification for the building.
"Metro Green is not just a great little corner of Stamford that's going to make a difference in this city," Himes said. "This is pointing us in the direction -- and by "us' I mean Norwalk and Bridgeport and Chicago and L.A. -- of what the future of the American city looks like."
