Filed under “There’s something you don’t see every day,” Erland Construction Co. recently hoisted a 7-ton swimming pool into place at 184 Summer St. in Stamford, the site of Stamford-based F. D. Rich’s 22-story residential building, Summer House.

The 40-foot lap pool, already tiled, was hoisted to its berth on the fifth floor. It is made of stainless steel and holds about 9,000 gallons of water, according to Erland, which is managing the project construction. Erland is based in Massachusetts, with offices in Stamford and East Windsor.

Summer House is composed of 226 apartments, a five-level garage and a 23rd floor rooftop terrace. Erland describes it as mixed-use, high-rise rental housing. Units could begin renting in August. Amenities include 2,700 square feet dedicated to restaurant space.

Hoisting the pool was an example of working in what Erland termed “a complex, tight site in downtown Stamford.”

At 22 stories, Summer House will become the city’s tallest rental building. The project was created by the F. D. Rich Co. and The Andalex Group, a real estate company based in New York City, with financing provided by U.S. Bank.
