The Connecticut Commercial Real Estate Market

Thanks to the heavy presence of professional office-based industries, office buildings continue to be one of Connecticut’s highest performing sectors of the commercial real estate market.  The state of Connecticut is considered one of the wealthiest and one of the most densely populated states in the US, therefore contributing to a stable economy and real estate market, even amid past declines elsewhere.  Class A office space is always in high-demand, yet low in supply, making value and competition always on the rise.

Hartford’s downtown Commercial Business District – CBD, has always attracted real estate investors due to high rents and competition for property.  Due to limited "Class A" office space, real estate professionals have seen recent migrations out of the downtown area and into locations like Eastern and Northern Hartford. Hartford is the second largest commercial real estate market in all of New England.  Due to the various historic sites, art and entertainment venues, and a vitalized riverfront with restaurants and other surrounding tourist and hospitality attractions, Hartford’s second largest market sector is retail.

Not only is Hartford the capital of Connecticut, but it is also known as the insurance capital of the world.  Hartford is home to the headquarters of some of the biggest insurance businesses in the world such as Aetna, Conning & Company, The Hartford, The Phoenix Companies, United Healthcare, Travelers, and Lincoln National. Big-name companies such as these make the neighboring area ideal for other businesses to develop. With a population of more than 124,000 and the home base for some of the biggest and wealthiest insurance companies in the world, Hartford is a prime location for those looking for commercial real estate and new business ventures in New England.
