Attorneys Michael J. Cacace and Nicholas W. Vitti, Jr. recently joined Mayor David Martin for the groundbreaking of Stamford Urby, an 11-building housing development at Tresser Boulevard and Greyrock Place.

Cacace, Tusch & Santagata represented the developer, Ironstate Development Co., throughout the administrative approval process before the Stamford Urban Redevelopment Commission. Recognized for extensive experience with Stamford zoning and land use regulations, the firm takes a team approach to streamlining development projects, beginning from the planning stage.

For more than 20 years, residents of downtown Stamford have hoped to see development take place at the empty 4-acre lot at Tresser and Greyrock, infamously known to locals as the “hole in the ground.” Now, that desire is coming to fruition.

“We are confident that Stamford Urby will enhance the vibrance of the community, and we congratulate our client and the City of Stamford on the progress of this project to the construction phase,” says founding partner Mike Cacace.

During Stamford Urby’s first phase of construction, nine buildings will be completed, creating 464 rental apartments and amenities that include a café, pool and landscaped courtyard. The Stamford location is the fourth iteration for Urban Ready Living, following others in Staten Island, Jersey City and Harrison, NJ.


Cacace, Tusch & Santagata is recognized for its real estate and zoning practice, with extensive experience in representing commercial developers before municipal and state land use boards.
