WILMINGTON, DE-An AIG subsidiary, American Life Insurance Co., has inked a 38,089-sf lease at an office building in the CBD here. A short-term lease, the transaction is nonetheless significant as it likely represents the largest deal signed for the year in the market, according to Jackson Cross Partners, the broker that represented the building owner.

“There has been quite a bit of activity in the CBD but not all the deals are crossing the finish line,” Cindy Fleming, one of the Jackson Cross brokers that worked on the deal, tells GlobeSt.com. “Tenants are being cautious and taking their time to close transactions.” Besides Fleming, Pete Davisson and Keith O’Brien represented the building owner in the transaction. McConnell Johnson represented the tenant.

American Life will be occupying the Renaissance Centre, an eight-story, class A office at 405 N. King St. in the city’s Lower Market Design District. The 194,000-sf building, which was developed in 2007 by the Commonwealth Group, has about 100,000 sf left to lease. Suites are available from 1,500 sf up to full floors of 23,715 sf, Davisson says in a prepared statement.
