General Reinsurance Signs 20 Year Lease for Stamford HQ

BNET / Real Estate Weekly - August 20, 2008

A team that recently joined Jones Lang LaSalle through its merger with The Staubach Company has completed a new direct lease transaction for General Reinsurance Corp. at Building and Land Technology's Long Ridge Corporate Center campus in Stamford, Conn. The reinsurance company signed a 20-year lease for the entire 310,000 s/f 120 Long Ridge Road office building.

The tenant was represented by Brian Higgins, managing director--brokerage, Jay Koster, managing director--capital markets, and Chris Kraus, managing director--brokerage, all with Jones Lang LaSalle's New York office. The team worked closely with Michael A. Rea, vice president with Gen Re, throughout the process. Property owner Building and Land Technology was represented in-house by Carl Kuehner, chief executive officer, and Paul Kuehner, chief financial officer.

Gen Re is relocating to 120 Long Ridge Road from 695 East Main Street, also known as Financial Centre, which had served as the reinsurer's headquarters for the past 25 years. The company's master lease at Financial Centre is set to expire in 2010. Gen Re plans to occupy its new headquarters space at 120 Long Ridge Road in late 2009. Sphere: Related Content
