THE DEWART BUILDING
The Dewart Building at 300 State Street is home to an eclectic mix of business, service, retail and arts spaces. Located in historic downtown New London, designed by local architect Dudley St. Clair Donnelly, who is also responsible for the Mercer Building, ISAAC School building, and the downtown Citizens Bank, it was built in 1912 with a marble entryway, brass handrails on the stairs and still preserves most of the original architectural detail, woodworking and mail chute. The building’s name changed when William J. Dewart bought it a few years later. Dewart obtained his fortune while serving as business manager for Frank Munsey, a New York publishing giant who was responsible for building the Mohican Hotel across the street in 1896.
Whether a suite of offices overlooking the Garde Marquee, or a smaller boutique space for a graphic designer, visual artist, lawyer, therapist or artist, the five stories of the Dewart building are among the most vibrant work spaces in the city.
ABOUT THE PLACE
The Dewart Building is a beautifully maintained, historic building loaded with charm. Unlike other downtown office spaces that tend to be narrow and deep, The Dewart Building allows for a wider range of configurations, perfect for all types of businesses, arts and creative uses. The antique mail chute, brass railing and life sized Blues Brothers statues are among the unique characteristics found in this building.
Being on upper State Street, there are sweeping views of downtown New London from the upper floors of The Dewart. We are located right across from the Garde Theatre and The Mohican and next to the historic New London Public Library. There are also numerous restaurants within walking distance, making lunchtime a convenient part of your day. We are also only a few blocks from New London’s transportation hub. Trains, buses, ferries, we have it all right here in historic downtown New London. It’s a great place to work and play!
