Newmark Grubb Knight Frank has been selected as the exclusive leasing agent at 330 Railroad Ave. in Greenwich. Richard Granoff of Greenwich’s Granoff Architects and partner Jeffrey B. Mendell of Greenwich Development Partners recently acquired the building and plan extensive renovations to reposition it as a three-story, 25,000-square-foot, Class A office building.
The building, erected in 1928, had most recently been used by Connecticut Light & Power (now Eversource) as a maintenance and repair facility.
The new owners plan to retain the industrial “bones” of the building while adding up-to-date fixtures and features including a rooftop solar installation. NGKF Managing Director Allan Murphy said the final product will “have a look and feel similar to high-tech conversions that are occurring in Soho, Tribeca, and Brooklyn.”
Granoff Architects plans to occupy most of the first floor as its headquarters beginning in January 2017, leaving 17,000 square feet — including the entire top floor of over 12,000 square feet — available for lease.
Murphy and NGKF Executive Vice President and Managing Director James Ritman, of the brokerage firm’s Stamford office, will manage leasing for the property.
