DESCRIPTION
Antinozzi Associates has been retained by Marcus Partners, a real estate investment, development, and management firm (based in Boston), to perform numerous on-call architectural/interior design services for their Connecticut office. In 2011, two years after Marcus Partners separated from another real estate development company, we opened a branch office at their newly-acquired Merritt 7 Corporate Park in Norwalk after they (with Clarion Partners) retained our firm to provide on-call tenant design services for the 1.5 million square foot office complex.

DESCRIPTION
Since 2011, we have designed and completed numerous tenant test-fits, capital improvement projects, base building verification, and construction documents for the Merritt 7 Corporate Park, as well as at other properties located in Shelton, Norwalk, and Westport.

At 6 Armstrong Park, a corporate building complex in Shelton, this 175,000 SF Class ‘A’ office property underwent a $4.5 million capital improvement program which included upgraded lobbies, common areas, and furnishings. Additionally, we are providing these same services for 40 Cross Street, a 70,000 SF Class ‘A’ medical office property located in Norwalk.

Most recently, Marcus Partners retained our architectural and interior design services for capital improvements at a newly-acquired corporate complex at 8 & 10 Wright Street in Westport. Our services will focus on the design of main entrance and lobby improvements, corridors, elevator cabs, toilet rooms, mechanical rooftop screening, and garage to lobby connections.

“We have retained Antinozzi Associates to work on a multitude of our projects since 1996 when we were first introduced to them by the NASDAQ. Projects have ranged from minimal interior renovations to complete building rehabs to new, Gold LEED Certified Class A office buildings. Davis Marcus Partners has a Connecticut portfolio of properties that total over 1.2M square feet and Antinozzi Associates has performed and continues to perform extensive architectural services for each of these buildings.

We are a very demanding client in regards to cost of their services, speed and quality of their work, speed and quality of the product they design, meeting schedules (both design and construction) and ultimately bringing each and every project in under budget and within schedule and quality criteria. They have always met or exceeded our requirements – and I always have the direct attention of and access to the partners. I am pleased to say that Antinozzi Associates is an integral part of our continued success in Connecticut.”
