CBRE has signed its first deal at 1055 Washington Boulevard in Stamford, CT, since taking over as leasing agent earlier this year.
The brokerage firm announced today that the law firm of Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey, LLP will occupy 19,241 s/f on a long-term lease at the RPW Group-owned property.
RPW bought the Class A office building at the end of last year and is planning a series of capital improvements, including renovating the café, common areas, and elevators.
Andrew Weisz, executive vice president of RPW Group, said the aim is to create more open spaces for tenants. “Plans call for the activation of the lobby and fourth floor outdoor terrace/plaza to make them more usable by tenants and provide additional space for work related activities, meetings and events,” he added.
Carmody joins tenants including Omnicom and Robinson & Cole in the 183,125 s/f 10-story property located within walking distance of the Stamford Metro-North/Amtrak train station, and dozens of restaurants and retail options. The building also overlooks the new $60 million Mill River Park Development with its ponds, skating rink, carousel and walking trails.
The CBRE team of David Block and Joe Weaver are leading the leasing effort at the building/ Block commented, “As a prominent owner and operator of Class A office buildings, RPW Group has been creating exceptional work environments throughout its portfolio. This newest lease transaction is a testament to its commitment to helping companies leverage their office space to attract and retain top talent.
“We look forward to continuing our leasing success at the building and what comes next for RPW Group.”
Tim Rorick and Torey Walsh of Newmark represented Carmody in the transaction.
