Cushman & Wakefield in Stamford announced it is the exclusive leasing agent for 1000 Bridgeport Ave., a five-story, 134,035-square-foot, Class A office building in Shelton.
The building was acquired in May by Boston-based Fairfield Realty Group, which plans a multimillion-dollar improvement program to revamp it. It is near exit 11 of Route 8 and close to the Merritt Parkway and Interstate 95.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Kevin Foley, executive director, and Michael Dillon, director, are the exclusive leasing agents for the property. The Foley/Dillon team was the leasing agent for the building for the previous owners, Fairfield-based Abbey Road Advisors LLC.
The building features a full-service cafeteria, a bank with ATM and a printing and copy shop.
Renovations include upgrades to the lobby, elevators, common corridors, bathrooms and landscaping.
George Selca, Fairfield Realty Group partner, said in a statement, “We immediately saw enormous potential in 1000 Bridgeport Ave. It has a great location and great ‘bones.’ We are confident that once our modernization program is complete, the demand to lease space in 1000 Bridgeport Ave. will be stronger than ever before.
“We chose Cushman & Wakefield, and Kevin Foley and Mike Dillon in particular, as our leasing agent because of their incredible depth of knowledge in the Shelton submarket,” Selca said. “They have an excellent handle on the leasing activity in the market and I know that 1000 Bridgeport Ave. will benefit from their long-standing relationships with tenants and brokers alike.”
