Douglas Elliman Real Estate moves Greenwich office to historic building


GREENWICH – A historic building in central Greenwich has a new tenant.

The John Lockhart House at 75 Arch Street will be the new home for Douglas Elliman, a leading real estate company moving to the historic site from a nearby office. The office is the main headquarters of Douglas Elliman in Connecticut.

Built around 1867 in the Second Empire style, the building is distinguished by its mansard roof. It operated as an office building for a number of years, serving as the office of David Ogilvy, a longtime Greenwich real estate broker who died in 2020. It was marked by the Greenwich Historical Society in 2013. Ogilvy oversaw building renovations. when he moved his business there in 1987.

Douglas Elliman doesn’t have much to do as his current office is nearby.

“While we enjoyed our stay at 88 Field Point Road in Greenwich, it is time for us to change to a bigger space for the betterment of our successful agents and their clients,” said Scott Durkin, President and Chief Executive Officer from the direction of Douglas Elliman. “We are incredibly proud to call the John Lockhart home and look forward to providing top notch real estate service from our new playground.”

The new site will house 70 agents and what the company calls a growing real estate business. The four-story building includes 6,000 square feet of space. Douglas Elliman said the proximity to the nearby Metro-North station was a plus. A company executive, Michael Fitzgibbon, noted that the office staff would be “active and engaged members of the surrounding community.”

The real estate company has recorded significant sales this year. The Greenwich office closed a record $ 281,958,000 in real estate sales in 2020, a 34% increase in sales volume from 2019. In January of this year, a company agent brought in a buyer to Tommy Hilfiger’s property at 30 John St. for $ 45 million, the highest sale in Greenwich so far this year.

Founded in 1911, Douglas Elliman promotes itself as the largest brokerage house in the New York metropolitan area.
