George Comfort & Sons, Inc. signed a 415,000-square-foot lease with WWE at 677 Washington Blvd. in downtown Stamford, CT. The three-building complex, which is now 72% leased, is situated on more than 12 acres and includes a 13-story office tower, a seven-story Pavilion, and a three-story retail and ancillary building.
The deal represents a major step forward in restoring the property’s standing as the commercial center of downtown Stamford. Other recent signed tenants include KPMG and Perkins Eastman. Completed in 1998 to serve as the North American HQ of an international bank, it was gradually vacated during the most recent decade.
George Comfort & Sons joined AVG Partners in the property’s ownership in early 2018, taking on operating and leasing responsibilities, as well as developing and executing the repositioning and re-leasing plan.
JLL’s Drew Saunders, Robert Ageloff, Allison Melichar and Joe Messina represented the tenant. The landlord was self-represented.
