Two New HOBI Awards for RMS
RMS Companies is proud to announce two new HOBI Awards in 2017. RMS has been recognized by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut for the for the Best Rental Community for UCONN Residences in Stamford and the Best Commercial Rehab Hartford County for the newly renovated Goodwin Hotel in Hartford.
About UCONN Residences — Completed in mid 2017, this 300 bed luxury dormitory building located in the center of Stamford, provides modern accommodations and convenient urban access to UCONN’s growing population of students. The six story building features studios and one and two bedroom apartments, many of which include lofts with private rooftop patios. The sate-of-the-art complex offers gathering spaces for large functions on the ground floor and the rooftop, study lounges on each residential floor, as well as private meeting rooms and entertaining areas for student collaboration and socialization. The ground floor of UCONN Residences is leased to the UCONN Business School for classrooms and to Slavins Pharmacy.
About The Goodwin Hotel — For its 2017 rebirth, this landmark property has been reimagined to become a vibrant and sophisticated hub of urban hospitality. A timeless classic situated in the heart of Downtown Hartford, The Goodwin, was originally developed as an apartment building in the late 1800s and later converted into a hotel. The original ornate façade of the apartment building was preserved and stands in bold contradiction to its modern counterparts. The stylish boutique hotel features 124 unique guest rooms including suites and duplexes, a state of the art fitness center and yoga studio, and over 5,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The Goodwin is home to destination restaurant, Harlan Brasserie led by chef-turned-restaurateur Stephen Lewandowski.
These two awards mark the 17th and 18th HOBI Awards for RMS since first being recognized in 2002. This is the 11th time being recognized for a residential community and 1st for a commercial rehab project. With encouraging results like these, RMS Companies strives to continue this winning tradition with more residential and commercial projects to come.
