London-based spirits conglomerate Diageo has signed a lease for around 40,000 square feet of space in Stamford, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. In January, the company said it would vacate its North American headquarters at 801 Main Avenue in Norwalk and relocate to 3 World Trade Center in Manhattan, but said it still planned to keep an office somewhere in Fairfield County. JLL’s Drew Saunders, Ed Tonnessen and Andrew Lutzer represented Diageo. The company plans to move into its new Stamford office at 200 Elm Street, which is owned by local developer Building and Land Technology, by early 2020. “This new space will bring us closer to downtown amenities while also providing an outstanding showcase for our diverse portfolio of brands,” a Diageo spokesperson said. Diageo’s North American headquarters were located in Stamford until 2004, when the company moved to Norwalk, according to the outlet. [FBJ]
