In 2012 and 2013, The Milford, Connecticut Chamber of Commerce awarded Robert H. Smith, Jr. and Metro Star Properties, LLC for the beautification of the Downtown Milford staple, One New Haven Ave. The annual “White Glove Award” for our Metro Point building is a wonderful honor.
As the largest building in this New England downtown and the centerpiece of its major intersection, poor appearance and lack of maintenance continually devalued the architectural persona of its neighbors. Metro Star purchased the property in December of 2010 and initiated the adaptive reuse of this failed building into a vibrant urban mixed use property. Consisting of 31 apartments and 17,000 square feet of updated modern office space, Metro Point symbolizes new urbanism and all it stands for. Completed in 2012 the project is fully occupied and has exceeded all expectations.
