Hackman Capital And Calare Properties Announces LEGO Expansion At Enfield Business Park
April 8, 2013
Hackman Capital Partners and Calare Properties are pleased to announce the recent expansion of LEGO Systems, Inc. at Enfield Business Park in Enfield, Connecticut, home to the toy manufacturer’s North American headquarters. The company is taking an additional 80,198 square feet of office space in the former manufacturing building in order to augment research and development efforts and accommodate an ever-expanding employee base. With the expansion, LEGO Systems fills 299,325 square feet of the 587,736-square-foot facility, which is now fully occupied. The five-building, multi-tenant business park, located off I-91, also houses the company’s corporate offices. The company’s commitment to the location dates back more than 37 years.
LEGO Systems plans to transform the new office space into an ultra-modern environment with first-rate amenities, including a full service kitchen and innovative office space. The renovation will mirror the one finished in 2011, at Enfield Business Park, which combines creative, open floor plans with more traditional work spaces, all filled with an abundance of natural light.
“The 2011 office refurbishment at LEGO® headquarters ranks best in kind,” said Phil Smith, Leasing Director of the National Industrial Portfolio, of which Enfield is a part. “The space is modern, bright and beautiful—and the new offices will be just as stunning. Improvements, like these, continue to advance the world-class image of the park, a benefit for both existing and future tenants.”
But for future tenants, available space is sparse at the park. Only Enfield’s 99 Print Shop remains for lease with 37,580 square feet of flexible, first-rate space on two floors, ideal for engineering, R&D, office or call center operations.
Enfield Business Park is represented by listing broker Sean Duffy at Cushman & Wakefield. The park is owned by a joint venture among entities formed by Hackman Capital Partners, LLC, Calare Properties, Inc. and KBS Real Estate Investment Trust.
