258 Elm Street represents the first acquisition in Besen’s targeted investment strategy to acquire quality office buildings in supply constrained upscale neighborhoods that have the ability to cater to smaller tenants whose office locations are primarily determined by convenience to area amenities and housing.


“The Elm Street property fits our strategy perfectly,” said Daniel J. Steinberg, Chief Investment Officer for Besen. “The affluence of New Canaan coupled with the strong real estate fundamentals make this a perfect property for our program.”


Besen’s affiliate, New York City Management, which presently manages more than 180 residential and commercial properties for its clients, will manage the New Canaan property.


Avison Young’s Fairfield/Westchester offices will be marketing the property to prospective tenants and negotiating leases for the office space. “This building has several unique attributes that will appeal to businesses seeking office space,” said Sean Cahill, Principal and Managing Director of Avison Young. “This is the first time this building and its quality space have been available, and there is a strong demand for office space in this submarket,” Cahill said.
