MERIDEN, CT-Fusco-Meriden Development Association is parting ways with two class A office buildings here for $13.2 million. The two buildings–530 and 538 Preston Ave.–are being purchased by TC Fund Property Acquisitions, an entity of Trammel Crow Company. The 155,000-sf property sits off exit 19 of the I-91, equidistant from Hartford and New Haven.

Jeff Dunne vice chairman of Investment Properties at CBRE explains that Trammel Crow is going to “bring new capital in” and bring the building up to a 2008 standard.
