THE LIGHTHOUSE AT STEELPOINTE HARBOR 

The Lighthouse at Steelpointe Harbor, located at 10 East Main Street in Bridgeport, with its three-story wood beamed atrium, sea-glass chandelier, first-class restaurant, and available waterfront office space has opened for business. Its 45,000 square feet of space is the newest jewel of Bridgeport development projects. The three-story 95-foot tall lighthouse themed building sits on Bridgeport Harbor at the tip of the East Side peninsula known as Steelpointe Harbor. Following the development of the area upland of Stratford Ave, the Lighthouse is the beginning of the development phase that will bring people back to the city’s urban waterfront.

Along with the 10,000 square foot restaurant the building has become the developers’ home for both land-based and marine operation. The developer is Bridgeport Landing Development (BLD) a division of the RCI group. RCI managing partner, Robert Christoph Jr. says that in addition to the BOCA Oyster Bar restaurant which opened in June, with both indoor and outdoor patio dining, another 8,000 square feet of office space overlooking the Harbor Walk and Marina will become available this summer.
