In another blow to what's left of Stamford's pre-urban renewal architecture, the Downes Building on Atlantic Street is slated for demolition.
As you can see on the demolition notice, the new building will be "mixed-use," which probably means that the ground floor will be retail and the upper floors will be residential. Based on recent trends, I figure the ground floor will eventually house:
- a bank
- a Starbucks
- a CVS
The upper-floor apartments will most likely be rented out to:
- hedge funders
- financial workers in blue shirts and khakis
- All of the above
On the bright side, at least Chinese Mirch is safe.
