On Thursday, June 21, 2018, Stamford Downtown hosted a Downtowner event at Stamford’s newest luxury apartment development, Vela on the Park Inspired Apartments. Guests were greeted by the concierge in the stunning brand new lobby, then directed to the 2nd-floor Solarium and Lounge to partake in tasty bites from Acuario and Verde Galerie, followed by offerings from Chelsea Piers and LifeCycle Spin Studio. Guests were then escorted to the 19th-floor private dining and entertainment space to wine and dine on local fare from ZAZA Italian Gastrobar and Teena’s Apizza. It was a perfect, sunny day to take in the spectacular views of NYC, Mill River Park and the Long Island Sound and feast on delicious bites from Fiesta on Main and California Tortilla on the Vela on the Park Skydeck. The 19th Floor Penthouse apartment was the place to be for surround sound views, mingling with Stamford Symphony and sampling tastings from Gaucho Steakhouse. As the summer sun cooled, the crowd strolled back to the Skydeck to cheer on the door prize winners. The breathtaking sunset over downtown Stamford, the New York City skyline, and the Long Island Sound was the highlight of this Downtowner event. This is luxury living in downtown Stamford.
