BRIDGEPORT, Conn., Jan. 25, 2017 –  Colliers International Group Inc. (NASDAQ:CIGI, TSX:CIG) represented COWI North America in an 8,204-square-foot lease at 1000 Lafayette Blvd. in Bridgeport. The bridge, tunnel and marine engineering consulting group will relocate its regional operation to the downtown property from a suburban office campus in nearby Trumbull, Conn.

COWI’s long-term commitment at the 214,000-square-foot, 11-story corporate property follows an exhaustive site search led by Colliers’ Michael Siegel, an office leasing specialist based in the global commercial real estate services firm’s Stamford, Conn., office. “We looked at several suburban locations at the outset,” he noted. “However, the inherent benefits of an urban setting – including access to mass transportation and neighborhood amenities – better met my client’s evolving needs.”

Siegel noted that Bridgeport – the largest city in the State of Connecticut – offers the level of infrastructure COWI desired. “Within the city, 1000 Lafayette Blvd. provides Class A accommodations and an onsite cafeteria, conference facility, bank and covered secure parking,” he commented. “It was an ideal choice.”

COWI’s new offices on the 10th floor of 1000 Lafayette Blvd. will be ready for occupancy this fall. The company is a leading international consulting group that provides state-of-the-art services within the fields of engineering, environmental science and economics. COWI has more than 80 years of history, a permanent staff of over 6,200 employees worldwide and project offices in 35 countries. This includes 12 locations in North America.

Avison Young’s Lori Baker and Sean Cahill served as landlord broker for Shelbourne Lafayette LLC, which owns 1000 Lafayette Blvd. The COWI lease marks the second Colliers-brokered transaction at the building in as many months. In December, the firm represented litigation law firm Ryan Ryan Deluca LLP in its long-term, 12,351-square-foot commitment there.
