Bull’s Head Getting Busier: Frank Pepe, Whole Foods, Saks Off 5th

New tenants announced for the former Lord & Taylor

As previously noted in this newsletter, Frank Pepe and Shake Shack are both planning expansions in Stamford with new locations in Bull’s Head on the site of the recently-demolished Bank of America drive-thru (next to CVS).

It’s now been officially announced that Whole Foods and Saks Off 5th will soon be moving into the former site of Lord & Taylor, adding to ongoing concerns about about the potential impact on traffic at this already-congested intersection.

North Stamford residents are rightly concerned about the impact these projects could have on travel time downtown – already thirty or more minutes for North Stamford residents during the rush hours. The NSA continues to monitor the situation closely, and will keep you updated.
