(White Plains, New York; August 9, 2012) Cervalis, LLC has signed a long term lease with landlord FPG Norden DC, LLC for a new 167,691-square-foot data center and disaster recovery center to be built at 10 Norden Place, in Norwalk, CT. This is the largest lease transaction in Fairfield County to date this year and the largest build-to-suit in 12 years in Norwalk.
Howard E. Greenberg SIOR, President of Howard Properties, Ltd., White Plains, New York represented Cervalis, in partnership with John Stoddard CCIM, Vice President of Jones Lang LaSalle, Stamford, Connecticut. Jodie Dostal, Director, Cushman & Wakefield of CT, Inc. represented the landlord FPG Norden DC.
Since Cervalis’s founding in 2000, Mr. Greenberg has represented the company in negotiating more than 470,000 SF of leases in Dutchess County, New York; Totowa, New Jersey and Stamford, Connecticut, as well as its headquarters lease in Shelton, Connecticut.
“The Norwalk lease was the largest and most complex transaction we have completed in the last 12 years representing Cervalis,” Mr. Greenberg said. “To bring a 168,000 SF, custom-designed building out of the ground in today’s economic environment is truly a major accomplishment. The City of Norwalk, two public utility companies, the developer of the adjacent site as well as the landlord, its construction team and a number of attorneys and consultants all participated to accomplish this goal,” added Greenberg.

Its clients include organizations of all sizes, from emerging companies to Fortune 500 corporations, including financial services, insurance, health care/pharmaceuticals, government, education, utilities, energy, media/entertainment, manufacturing, transportation, retail and not-for-profit.
