CBIA held its Economic Summit yesterday morning. Great networking, good content. Not much surprising news. Same concerns about the CT economy. I am the first person to be critical of the State of CT (and thankful we spread our wings to do business outside the state a number of years ago) but I thought to myself while listening to the, at best, tempered view of 2018. We have been on tour the last three days for two 100,000,000 SF-125,000 SF requirements… In the last 2 weeks North Haven just signed a 130,000 SF chemical company lease and Bristol just signed a 200,000 SF manufacturing lease. It can’t be all that bad!
Nice to listen to Chris Swift, the CEO of The Hartford, with a thoughtful, balanced view of our region!
