HARTFORD-United Technologies Corp.’s corporate headquarters is staying put, at least for the next seven and a half years. The company extended its lease for 173,530 sf at the 26-story One Financial Plaza building through the end of December 2014. Its previous lease expired at year’s end 2009. The firm has been a tenant of the nearly 622,000-sf high rise since it was first built in 1974.

The building is now approximately 98% leased. John McCormick and Andrew Filler of CB Richard Ellis’ Hartford office represented the building owner, locally based Talcott Realty Investors, in the transaction. Joseph Sadak of United Systems Integrators of Stamford, CT represented UTC in the deal.

Martin Kane, senior vice president of Talcott Realty, says “the fact that a Fortune 50 company, respected internationally, which took occupancy over 30 years ago at One Financial Plaza in Hartford, has renewed its commitment to us and more importantly to the Hartford region for the next 7.5 years is invaluable. It is so critical to Connecticut, an expensive place to do business, to retain highly skilled, knowledgeable jobs and to create an environment where these employees and companies who hire them can thrive.”

Other tenants at the property, also known as the Gold Building, include Accenture, St. Paul Travelers, People’s Bank, IBM, KPMG, UHY Advisors, Conning & Co., Mass Mutual, General Reinsurance, Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers and law firms Reid & Riege and Berman & Sable.
