Add another Hartford office tower to the list of those in trouble.

According to the Hartford Courant, the New York-based partnership that owns the majority share in the city’s Constitution Plaza tower “narrowly averted” a foreclosure sale forced by a creditor who loaned the partnership $10 million.

The LLC that owns the building filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month, the paper said, to halt the sale, but the creditor is challenging that.

The property, never the most successful in downtown Hartford, is the second major office property in the city’s downtown to face foreclosure proceedings. The iconic “Stilts Building” at 20 Church St. has faced a similar threat since 2022, with the procedings stuck in court since then as owner Shelbourne Global Solutions has sought to refinance loans on the property.

Companies inked just 180,000 square feet of leases across the 26 million-square-foot metro market in the fourth quarter, CBRE reported in January. The availability rate declined slightly to 27.6 percent, while direct vacancies ended the year only slightly lower at 27.4 percent.
