Cushman & Wakefield today announced that Northwestern Mutual, a renowned life insurance and financial services company, will be relocating to 274 Riverside Avenue in Westport, CT.  The company leased 11,575 square feet of office space with incredible water views and will occupy the entire 4th floor. 

As the exclusive leasing agent, Cushman & Wakefield’s Adam Klimek, director, represented the landlord, Lexham Properties, the tenant was represented by Colin Reilly, senior vice president of CBRE.

Marc Lewis, managing member of Lexham Properties said, “We are happy to welcome such a prestigious brand into our building and we look forward to a long partnership.”

Mr. Klimek said, “The building was an obvious choice for Northwestern Mutual, which had been located across the street at 285 Riverside Avenue for 10 years.  274 Riverside Avenue offered them more prominent river views from a higher floor in a building that has been renovated to accommodate just this cachet of tenant.”

274 Riverside Avenue is a five-story, 48,121-sf Class-A, boutique office building overlooking the Saugatuck River.  It is 95 percent leased with just 3,100 square feet on the penthouse level available.  The building offers a very convenient location with easy access to I-95, the Metro North train station and upscale Westport restaurants and shopping.

Northwestern Mutual is not "coming" to Riverside Avenue. It's there and merely moving across the street!

I don't see how your headline uses the words "coming to Riverside Avenue" when Northwestern Mutual is already on Riverside Avenue but across the street or 10 years. You should be more careful with your choice of words so as not to mislead.

On second reading, this article is simply a puff piece for Cushman & Wakefield.
