“We’re thrilled to be working with 4M Capital Trust,” said Gene Torone, President of S/L/A/M Construction Services. “In addition to providing the architectural services, our Construction Services division will be assisting 4M through the bidding and pre-construction phase. Our work with 4M Capital Trust and Karp Associates Inc. is a testament to how SLAM’s unique integrated practice provides continuity in services that transition from design through construction.”

Located a half mile from New Canaan’s Metro-North Station on Cross Street, the three-story mixed-use building will accommodate 7,000 SF of retail space and 12 residential rental units. The building will feature flexible retail space fronting on Cross Street, with one and two-bedroom market-rate apartments above, all in a desirable part of town adjacent to the downtown area.

“4M Capital Trust is excited to collaborate with SLAM on this project,” said Arnold Karp, President of 4M Capital Trust. “The new building will be the first to provide New Canaan with many of the key elements of the recently adopted town Plan of Development and Conservation: denser infill development in carefully selected areas that add continuity and vitality to our walkable Downtown district. We worked extensively with the Town to create a scale of project and an aesthetic that fits into the New Canaan fabric.”

Site work is currently underway and construction is scheduled for completion in July of 2016. 4M Capital is the developer and builder with The S/L/A/M Collaborative serving as the architect and S/L/A/M Construction Services as the Construction Manager Advisor. SLAM has several projects currently in progress in New Canaan, including the renovation and addition to the Saxe Middle School, security and energy improvements to the South Elementary School, and the renovation and expansion of the New Canaan YMCA.
