Golf simulator headlines $10M upgrade to Hartford's 100 Pearl St.

Rendering | Contributed A virtual golf-simulator and putting green are being added to the 100 Pearl skyscraper in downtown Hartford.

The blue-glass sheathed downtown Hartford office tower known as 100 Pearl will undergo an interior facelift and fresh amenities aimed at lifting tenancy in the 17-story skyscraper.

New York landlord-owner Shelbourne Global Solutions LLC said Friday work begins immediately on the budgeted $10 million in amenity improvements and common-area upgrades to the Class A office tower built in 1989, including: a golf-themed lobby including a virtual golf-simulator, putting green, and Wi-Fi enabled bleacher seating.

A partnership with pop-up restaurant operator Fooda will provide a newly appointed café area on the ground floor, offering free coffee, games, a ping pong table, and TV screens.

A remodel of 100 Pearl’s conference and fitness center will come later, said Shelbourne operations chief Michael Seidenfeld.

“Hartford is a city on the rise, with technology, innovation and creativity driving its resurgence,” Seidenfeld said.

Shelbourne acquired 100 Pearl in March 2015 for $37 million from New Jersey’s Silverman Group.

About 100,000 square feet of the tower’s approximately 280,000 square feet of office space is available, Shelbourne said.

Hartford commercial broker Andy Filler, of Avison Young, oversees its marketing and tenancy.

100 Pearl’s tenant roster includes includes law firms UKS (formerly Updike, Kelly & Spellacy), Goldberg Segalla and Wilson Elser; insurance agency CM Smith; First Niagara Bank; temporary-office provider Regus; and the Greater Hartford Arts Council. 

Shelbourne in the last five years has acquired four downtown office towers -- 20 Church, Metro Center; The Gold Building and 100 Pearl -- totaling more than 1.6 million square feet of office and commercial space.

It also is part of a trio of developers proposing a $100 million reset of the Pratt Street commercial corridor, extending to the Talcott Plaza complex west of Main Street, with more apartments, mixed-use space and parking.

Since 2014, Shelbourne, which is now downtown Hartford’s largest Class A office building owner, has acquired four downtown Hartford office towers; 20 Church, Metro Center, 100 Pearl Street, and The Gold Building
