SPRINGFIELD — A giant “W” is now visible at the top of Tower Square, and Wellfleet, a Berkshire Hathaway insurance company, said its full name and logo will be up on the western side of the skyscraper facing Interstate 91 next week.
“After a delay due to the pandemic, we’re excited to be installing the Wellfleet sign on the Tower Square building,” said Drew DiGiorgio, Wellfleet president and CEO. “We take pride in our Springfield roots, and our state-of-the-art offices at Tower Square are the perfect home for our growing company.”
Wellfleet, formerly Consolidated Health Plans, grew out of its offices on Roosevelt Avenue in Springfield and relocated to Tower Square in 2019. It has 80,000 square feet across three floors.
The company has about 210 employees, with the majority based at the Tower Square office, according to a news release.
Wellfleet provides accident and health insurance.
MassMutual took its name and logo off Tower Square in 2018 after selling the downtown Springfield skyscraper to a group of investors for $7 million. Those investors, Vid Mitta, Dinesh Patel, Rohit Patel and Kamlesh Patel, also paid $10.5 million for the adjoining hotel.
Renovations at the hotel are wrapping up, Dinesh Patel said last week, and the partners are awaiting a delivery of furniture in order to rebrand it again as a Marriott.
On Tuesday, Wellfleet said Agnoli Sign Co. of Springfield is doing the installation atop the 28-story building some 300 feet in the air. Work began last week with the “W.”
