40 Optical Drive

This single-story, 24,700 square-foot building, built in the 1950s was the former research and development laboratory for American Optical. The building can accommodate a single user or be subdivided. The building contains one loading dock.

The building is sited on the most beautiful portion of the Innovation Center – the riverfront park. A generous lawn and mature plantings lead to the river edge. Parking is available at the front of the building.

Tenants are invited to cross to the Wellsworth Hotel via the Quinebaug River footbridge. All of the facilities are easily accessible and available to the building tenants; these include the conference center, pub and fitness center.

Given the building’s floor-to-ceiling height of 12, its excellent window lines and location within the park, 40 Optical Drive is ideally suited for multiple uses.
