Downtown Hartford’s largest landlord Shelbourne announced Wednesday it’s rolling out new health and wellness amenities for its Class-A office tenants.
Shelbourne said the new “Wellness Wednesday” program will offer weekly on-site health and wellness perks including yoga and fitness classes, massage and manicures, among other services.
To launch the program Shelbourne said it has partnered with and made an equity investment in LISA, a national company that provides on-site, pop-up health and wellness services in over 30 states.
“Offering our tenants a greater sense of well-being through popular activities coupled with ease of access is incredibly valuable in today’s office environment,” said Michael Seidenfeld, Shelbourne's chief operating officer. "We are very excited to have the opportunity to invest in a fast-growing national company that directly solves for quality amenities in buildings and helps create a vibrant community in the office place. Buildings are no longer just a place to work — they need to be an experience."
Shelbourne has bought heavily in Hartford over the past decade, acquiring — wholly or through a partial ownership stake — 20 city properties with more than 2.5 million square feet and values totaling more than $250 million. Its portfolio includes major Class A office towers, like the Gold Building, Stilts Building (20 Church St.), Metro Center (350 Church St.) and 100 Pearl St.
