An exciting new chapter in the history of Stamford also marks a new move for William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty with the opening of the firm’s state-of-the-art, 5,700-square-foot brokerage office at Harbor Point, a dynamic 80-acre mixed-use community forging the rebirth of the city’s historic South End waterfront.
“Our new Harbor Point office puts us at the forefront of the future in the real estate industry, in technology, and in the city of Stamford,” said Paul Breunich, President and CEO of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty. Mr. Breunich brings more than two decades of real estate leadership to his position, and has overseen the firm’s growth to over 1,100 sales associates in more than 30 brokerages throughout Connecticut and Westchester County. The opening of the Harbor Point Brokerage along with the firm’s Juner Brokerage and North Stamford Parkway Brokerage positions the company as Stamford’s market leader and one of the nation’s top 25 real estate firms, offering a combination of local expertise and international renown.
An innovative departure from the traditional real estate office, the Harbor Point brokerage of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty features sophisticated open-plan hotel-inspired styling along with the very latest advances of the virtual world. With 40 agents providing buyers and sellers an unsurpassed level of service, the facility includes elegant conference rooms as well as large plasma screens showcasing the Sotheby’s International Realty® network’s luxury listings in more than 40 countries around the world. The office is prominently located at the gateway to Harbor Point Square, at the crossroads of Washington Boulevard and Atlantic Street.
Transforming Stamford’s South End with a unique mix of urban vibrancy and waterfront beauty, Harbor Point is a “Smart Growth” development designed as a place to live, work, and play, all within walking distance of Metro-North and Amtrak train service, and just minutes from Interstate 95 and the Merritt Parkway. Harbor Point is already a thriving local and regional destination with Class-A offices, hotels, shops, and restaurants in addition to luxury residences, beautifully renovated lofts, and acres of lush parklands. Its constantly growing list of tenants includes Connecticut’s first Fairway Market grocer, Louis Dreyfus Highbridge Energy, and retailer Design Within Reach. Additionally, the neighborhood encompasses the city’s antiques district.
Unprecedented in the region, Harbor Point is one of the nation’s largest active redevelopment projects and is led by Stamford-based Building and Land Technology, a second-generation real estate development company with completed ventures worth more than $3-billion including over 4 million square feet of commercial development and more than 4,000 residential units.
“Harbor Point presented the perfect location for our newest Stamford brokerage office,” said Mr. Breunich. “We are extremely pleased to be part of this exciting new community, which has already become a resounding success and an integral part of the city.”
