Stamford’s premier business address, 400 Atlantic Street is a 15-story, 500,000-square-foot Class A office building that was originally conceived and constructed as Champion Paper's world headquarters. The building is highlighted by a dramatic lobby entrance and public spaces, expansive 37,000-square-foot highly flexible floor plates, elegant interior staircases and sweeping views of Long Island Sound.
Already home to such high-quality corporations as UBS, American Express, The Santander Group and Harman Kardon, the property has 40,000 square feet of premier space available with the ability to expand. The CBRE team of David Block and Steven Greenbush is the exclusive leasing agent for the building.
Additionally, The Landis Group recently launched an effort to enhance 400 Atlantic’s overall energy-efficiency in an effort to attain Energy Star certification and pursue Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Existing Buildings Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for the building. The ownership has assembled an in-house “green team” to incorporate numerous sustainable initiatives in addition to cost-cutting and energy savings strategies such as changes in electrical usage, fuel/gas consumption and hardscape management with the goal of creating a state-of-the-art business environment that integrates the principles of environmental responsibility and sustainability. In a recent engineering report it was estimated that the site would save approximately $300,000 annually in energy costs due to key upgrades in the building’s common areas.
The property, which is located just 35 minutes from Manhattan, is across the street from the Stamford Metro-North Rail Station and adjacent to Interstate 95. Each of the building’s light flooded floors presents an opportunity for eight spacious corner offices, while the center core construction allows for the most efficient space planning.
