NEW YORK, January 17, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle has completed two sublease deals totaling 63,000 square feet for General Re Corp. at 120 Long Ridge Road, also known as Long Ridge Corporate Center, in Stamford, Conn. The reinsurance firm subleased 56,000 square feet to Statoil and subleased 7,000 square feet to Fuel Tech Inc. for 10 years at the 310,000-square-foot, Class A office building.

Gen Re, which triple net leases the building from Building and Land Technology of Norwalk, Conn., was represented in the Statoil and Fuel Tech transactions by Brian Higgins and Chris Kraus, managing directors, both with Jones Lang LaSalle’s New York office; and Ethan Rice and Pat Lennon, both with the firm’s Stamford office. Statoil was represented by Colin Riley of CB Richard Ellis Inc. Fuel Tech was represented by George Walker, senior vice president, and John Stoddard, vice president, both with Jones Lang LaSalle’s Stamford office.

“Jones Lang LaSalle has a long-term relationship with Gen Re, having represented the company in its original relocation to 120 Long Ridge Road,” said Higgins. “We knew the property well from our previous work with the client and, leveraging our contacts in the marketplace, located two exceptional tenants seeking top-notch office space in Stamford.”

“Jones Lang LaSalle was able to sublease space for Gen Re to two credit tenants that appreciated the high quality of the office building and our management of the property,” said Michael A. Rea, vice president with Gen Re. “The office complex was recently cited by BOMA’s Southern Connecticut chapter as the 2010 Office Building of the Year in its category.”

Statoil subleased 56,000 square feet at 120 Long Ridge Road for 10 years, occupying a portion of the second floor and the entire third floor in the east wing of the office building, which is located betweenCross and Spring roads. The oil company is relocating to the property from 1055 Washington Boulevard in Stamford.
