Fairfield County’s Brent and Courtney Montgomery, and Wheelhouse unveil “THE VILLAGE” in Stamford, CT with Grand Opening Slated Spring 2021
In an unprecedented era when the world is rethinking what defines an “office” and reimagining how to reconcile work with personal priorities and the demands and desires of daily life, Wheelhouse CEO Brent Montgomery is proud to unveil “The Village” in Stamford, Connecticut, along with his wife Courtney Montgomery, developer of The Village and CEO of Wheelhouse Properties.
The Village is a brand new large-scale, indoor-outdoor, premium work-play environment bringing together best-in-class companies from the worlds of content and media, brands and marketing, social and experiential, and finance and investment.
Wheelhouse, ITV America and Cisco Brewers are set to be anchor tenants when The Village opens officially in spring 2021 (Cisco Brewers, the renowned family- and dog-friendly hot spot and producer of world-class beers, wines and spirits, is launching its first outpost in Connecticut) and negotiations remain under way with a range of tenants eager to call The Village home.
We are especially excited about Cisco Brewers launching its first CT location. We visited their brewery in Nantucket a couple years ago and are huge fans.
The Village will also partner with premier, organic food company Mike’s Organic which will help incubate and develop a portfolio of loved local food concepts at the building.
A list of the current tenants and partners of The Village include:
Cisco Brewers – the renowned family (and dog-friendly) hot spot and producer of world-class beers, wines and spirits, is launching its first outpost in Connecticut, along with Triple Eight Distillery and Nantucket Vineyard.
Straight from the beautiful island of Nantucket, Cisco Brewers is all about friends, family, kids, dogs, and great music. It also is home to the best single malt whisky in America: Triple Eight Distillery’s Notch 15-year, honored at the 2020 Whisky Magazine awards.
Mike’s Organic – CT’s premier farm-to-home delivery service and organic market will be one of The Village’s partners.
Food entrepreneur Mike Geller, who founded the business in 2009 as one of the first farm-to-home delivery services in America, will also serve as Chief Food Curator at The Village to help incubate and develop a portfolio of loved local food concepts.
Mike’s Organic connects consumers with small farms and purveyors to make it easier to find clean, wholesome, good-for-you food. The brand encompasses a delivery service for Fairfield County, CT & Westchester County, NY and a market in Stamford, CT.
