Summer house is a 500,000 sq. ft. mixed‐use tower with 18 residential floors seated on top of a five story parking garage in downtown Stamford,CT. This project introduced many challenges, the site location being the biggest one. In many aspects, it is almost like building in NYC‐ we have exiting buildings at all sides, and in addition, a portion of our building cantilever over an existing restaurant. The building was designed by others and was not built due to high cost. Wexler associates redesigned the structural system to a modified staggered truss system that resulted in 40% savings to the owner.
