After terrace collapse at Allure in Stamford, BLT tenants seek answers as anxiety mounts

STAMFORD — Three weeks after part of an indoor garage collapsed in a South End high-rise apartment building, residents are looking for more answers.

The murmurs about the damage infiltrate everything: dog park chatter, gossip sessions at shops, the Facebook pages for Harbor Point residents and other social media platforms.

Part of the fifth-floor outdoor terrace at Allure — a 23-story waterfront high-rise that opened in 2019 — collapsed on Feb. 1, temporarily leaving parts of the parking garage and building amenity spaces underneath the terrace unusable. No one was injured, and there was no damage to personal property.

But after the dust cleared and after the owners — preeminent Stamford developer Building and Land Technology — assured tenants at Allure that its engineers believed the partial collapse to be an “isolated” occurrence, some of the Harbor Point residents and tenants said they remained unsatisfied with the developer’s response.

“I’ve had to be proactive about concerns that I’ve had living in the building to get answers,” Allure resident Cathy Lewandowski said. “They are not proactively updating us … and that’s why I fear for my safety.”

Lewandowski and other residents say the slow pace of additional information from the developer has fueled fear and paranoia that has spread online, particularly on Facebook.
