Lifestyle Lift, a national facial cosmetic surgery practice, will open its first office in Connecticut at 69 East Ave. in Norwalk. Cushman & Wakefield is the exclusive leasing agent for 65-69 East Ave., a two-building, 22,000-square foot office complex located just off Interstate 95 at exit 16. Recently acquired by Edgewood Capital Advisors, the new owners are planning a broad range of renovations to the property.
As the exclusive leasing agents for the property, Cushman & Wakefield's Bill Montague, associate director, and Adam Klimek, associate director, represented the landlord in this 6,500-square-foot lease, while Kevin McCarthy of CB Richard Ellis represented the tenant.
"We are excited to welcome Lifestyle Lift to the region and specifically, to our property at 69 East Ave.," said Jonathan Breen, director, Edgewood Capital Advisors.
"Along with Lifestyle Lift, we are investing significant capital to transform this property into one of the premier medical/professional office buildings on the East Avenue corridor in Norwalk. We are also very happy to have Cushman & Wakefield as our exclusive leasing agent. Within their first two months as agent, we were already in discussions with Lifestyle Lift."
A significant capital improvement program has begun at 65-69 East Ave. Renovations include a new expanded lobby, the addition of an elevator, upgrades to common areas and bathrooms, and exterior enhancements including upgrades to the landscaping, parking lot, roof and cosmetic improvements to the building façade.
Commenting on the assignment, Montague said, "I'm very pleased that after a nine-month search, Lifestyle Lift chose 69 East Ave. to open its first office in Connecticut. The demographics of the South Central submarket, including Westport and Darien, are an ideal fit for their practice. We are confident that when Edgewood Capital completes the planned property improvements, the remaining available space in the complex will be much in demand."
David Kent, founder and chairman of Lifestyle Lift, said. "Lifestyle Lift is the largest practice of board certified or board eligible plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons and head and neck surgeons in the country. This is our first center in Connecticut, so we're especially pleased to be able to bring affordable facial rejuvenating care to consumers in the region. We'd like to invite anyone who wants to know more about the latest surgical and non-surgical options available today to contact us for a free consultation."
