The downtown Hartford historic office building known as Six Central Row that sold barely a year ago is back on the market, with the seller asking $300,000 more than it paid, the listing broker says.

The 15,300-square-foot building sits between Travelers Insurance and The Hartford Trust building, 750 Main St., and directly across the street from the Old State House.

New Britain commercial brokerage Amodio & Co. has the listing.

It is priced at $875,000. Current owner State House Realty Inc. disclosed last January its purchase of the building for $575,000.

Broker Eric Amodio said the owner invested an unspecified sum to spruce up the building's interior to accommodate a growing number of inquiries from existing and potential tenants. Upgrades included new LED lighting, new natural gas fired boilers, improvements to the common areas, stairwells and elevator.

Amodio said State House Realty's business model has changed since the acquisition, precipitating the sale listing. He did not elaborate.

The property currently has two tenants generating annual income of $120,388, according to Amodio's listing.

A three-building medical-office campus in Cheshire has space for lease.

Available suites range from 303 square feet to 2,080 square feet, Reno said.

In August, Reno Properties affiliate RPG Holding LLC paid seller 408-426 Highland Ave. $2 million for the campus. New Haven broker CW Landmark Group represented the seller in the deal.

Farmington sublease offer

A 3,200-square-foot Farmington office suite in the shadow of UConn Health is available for up to a two-year sublease, the listing broker says.

The first-floor space is in a two-story office building at 312 Farmington Ave. The current lease expires in April 2019.
