Hartford, CT Stark Office Suites, which offers turn-key, flexible executive office suites and virtual office services, has added another location to its roster of office space. The purchase of The Hartford Trust Building at 750 Main St. marks the company’s 10th location. The building was purchased for $4.3 million. The 17-story, brick-and-limestone building at 750 Main St. was constructed by the Hartford-Connecticut Trust Co. in 1921. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the oldest high rise commercial building in downtown. 

“We are excited to breathe new life into this iconic building located at the center of the downtown revival, and just steps away from transportation, entertainment, and Hartford’s finest restaurants,” said Adam Stark, president of Stark Office Suites. “We have great plans to renovate this historic gem – celebrating its beautiful architectural features while refreshing the suites and introducing cutting-edge modern amenities, such as a managed fiber-optic technology solution for the entire building, to make it a true 21st century building. It’s a historic building, but it will house the newest real estate concept in Hartford.”

Clients will enjoy a variety of perks – flexible lease terms, immediate occupancy, built-in services options, and more. Stark Office Suites provides flexibility to scale with its clients offering anything from a virtual office to a fully furnished full-time single office or suite to a purely traditional large suite.

The Hartford location is currently home to 60 businesses across a variety of industries, such as law, finance, marketing, real estate, nonprofit, technology, and various other professionals.

Ideally situated on a prominent corner location across from the Old State House, the building features two- and three-story windowed arches and is capped with a superstructure designed to resemble a pedimented Roman temple. Architects for the Hartford Trust Building were Morris & O’Connor. Morris’ extensive work in Hartford included the Morgan Memorial of the Wadsworth Atheneum and the Connecticut State Armory. Benjamin Wistar Morris also served as the architect for 48 Wall Street, known at one time as the Bank of New York Building, and now operating as the Museum of American Finance. The building’s window arches are reminiscent of those at 750 Main St.
