Keystone Property Group Closes on Acquisition of 17-17 Route 208 North in Fair Lawn, N.J. with Mack-Cali

Class A Office Building Part of Keystone's Acquisition of Tri-State Area Portfolio

FAIR LAWN, N.J., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A joint venture led by Keystone Property Group today announced that it has closed on the acquisition of 17-17 Route 208 North in Fair Lawn, N.J. for approximately $12.5 million from Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI). This closing is part of a portfolio acquisition pursuant to agreements entered into earlier this year between Keystone and Mack-Cali to form various joint ventures to acquire the portfolio of several office properties that Mack-Cali owns throughout Northern New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut.

Conveniently located within Bergen County's prestigious corporate community, 17-17 Route 208 North is a three-story, 150,477-square-foot class A office building, featuring underground executive parking for 114 cars, as well as generous surface parking. The property provides access to NJ TRANSIT trains and bus service, as well as routes 4 and 17, interstates 287, 87 and 80, the Garden State Parkway, the New York State Thruway and the George Washington Bridge. Ownership will invest in enhancements to the building's common area hallways, bathrooms and amenities, including an on-site cafeteria.

"In line with our strategy to create value through reinvestment, we look forward to executing on our plans to enhance 17-17 Route 208 North by making upgrades to the building's common areas," commented Bill Glazer, President of Keystone Property Group. "The property's desirable Bergen County location, with direct access to a robust highway network, positions it strongly in the regional market among quality tenants."

Earlier this year, Keystone closed on four other New Jersey commercial properties as part of the company's portfolio deal with Mack-Cali, including 412 Mt. Kemble Avenue in Morris Township, 30 Knightsbridge Road in Piscataway, 470 Chestnut Ridge Road in Woodcliff Lake, and 530 Chestnut Ridge Road in Woodcliff Lake. Reflecting the ownership's strategy for the portfolio, Keystone will reinvest in the properties through redevelopment, management and upgrades to each site. Through its partnership with Keystone, Mack-Cali will participate in value creation above certain hurdle rates, handle leasing of the portfolio, as well as share in management fees.

Mitchell E. Hersh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mack-Cali, stated, "The reinvestment strategy in place for 17-17 Route 208 North will enable the partnership to both retain and attract high-caliber tenants as we capitalize on the building's prime location and space opportunities. We are pleased to be closing on this transaction, as we continue to identify new avenues for growth through strategic investment."

Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
