Rubenstein Partners, L.P., and George Comfort & Sons, Inc. jointly announced today the completion of a new lease with Digital Currency Group at Shippan Landing, an office complex located at Stamford Harbor.

Digital Currency Group, a leading investor in bitcoin and blockchain technology companies, signed a 12-year lease to occupy over 90,000 s/f across the entire 4th and 5th floors at 290 Harbor Drive.  The company will relocate from 250 Park Avenue South in Manhattan and expects to occupy the new headquarters in late 2022.

“We’re proud of the transformation of Shippan Landing, and we believe the arrival of Digital Currency Group shows that the property’s new, one-of-a-kind indoor and outdoor amenity offering, incredible views, and waterfront access are meeting the demands of tenants seeking top-quality space in a differentiated, activated campus setting,” said Joseph Zuber, Co-Head of Northeast Region at Rubenstein Partners. 

Owned by a joint venture comprised of a Rubenstein affiliate and George Comfort, Shippan Landing consists of six buildings of Class-A office space situated on 17 acres at the Stamford Harbor waterfront.  Situated on a peninsula overlooking Long Island Sound and Stamford Harbor, the complex recently underwent a complete reimagining to provide tenants with a contemporary and collaborative environment.

“Shippan Landing
has always been special, and the work that has been done to improve the spaces
and provide new, top-of-the-line amenities has only made it more so,” said Peter
S. Duncan, President and CEO of George Comfort & Sons. “This agreement is a
great indication that the office market is showing strength heading into next
year.”

The recent renovations at Shippan Landing include Harbor Terrace, a brand new amenity building featuring a café with outdoor seating looking over Long Island Sound and fitness center/yoga studio, and Harbor Green, an outdoor courtyard with modern landscaping, walking paths and seating areas.  The buildings have also been upgraded with brand new lobbies, state-of-the art elevator systems and cabs, and new HVAC systems.  Other complex amenities include a beer garden, private terraces and patios, sports courts and waterfront common seating and lounge areas.  Private shuttle service connects Shippan Landing tenants to the Stamford Metro-North station for access to Manhattan, as well as Downtown Stamford.  Notable tenants on the campus include Vineyard Vines, the clothing retailer known for its distinctive designs; Octagon, one of the world’s top agencies for sports and entertainment marketing and talent management and Workpoint, a unique take on traditional co-working spaces geared to creatives, media professionals, and solopreneurs.

“I am excited to
see Digital Currency Group come to Stamford and I know that the company has
found the right city and state to grow its business” said Thomas Madden,
Commissioner of Economic Development for the City of Stamford, Connecticut. “It
has been a team effort between the State DECD, Advance CT, the city of
Stamford, Rubenstein Partners and George Comfort & Sons to bring DCG here
and look forward to watching the company grow in Stamford.”

Digital Currency
group was represented by Michael Mathias of Savills.  Ownership was represented in-house by Mr.
Duncan and Dana Pike, as well as by Trip Hoffman, Mike Norris and Adam Klimek
