Choyce Peterson Negotiates 14,000 Square Foot Lease for RTi Research Headquarters in Norwalk, CT

Norwalk, CT - Choyce Peterson, Inc. ( a commercial real estate brokerage and consulting firm announced the successful completion of lease negotiations for RTi Research at MerrittView, 383 Main Avenue in Norwalk, CT.  Principals Alan Peterson and John Hannigan represented RTi Research, who will relocate from 1351 Washington Blvd., Stamford, CT in the first quarter of 2015.

To accommodate their increasing workforce, RTi had specific criteria for their larger office space which included a Class A office building in Stamford or Norwalk with numerous amenities, adequate parking, good highway access and pleasant views.  Peterson stated, “As experienced tenant representatives, we were able to quantify acceptable alternatives for this growing company and provide critical intelligence for RTi to best evaluate their lease options.  To better address their space needs, we recommended an expansion of the team to include architect Monique Delerme of Corporate Design Solutions. She was able to design a floor plan layout to incorporate individual work environments in keeping with RTi’s vision for their future.”  

After touring many buildings and soliciting proposals from several landlords, RTi focused on the MerrittView building at 383 Main Avenue.  They appreciated the upgraded amenities, as well as the excellent building management and existing tenant base which were very much in line with their office culture.  David Rothstein, CEO of RTiResearch, stated, “Having worked with Alan and John on previous office space lease transactions, we were confident they would once again implement their process to secure an advantageous transaction for RTi.  They made a great effort from the beginning to understand what we were looking for in a new location, seamlessly executed negotiations with the new landlord and ultimately secured a great lease deal for us, including a custom-designed build out of the new space funded by the landlord.”

The landlord, Empire State Realty Trust (ESRT), was represented by Kim Zaccagnino, Jeff Newman and Tara Long of ESRT’s in-house leasing team in this transaction.
