NEW YORK, NY (July 21, 2014) – Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI) and CBRE Group, Inc. announced today that CBRE has been selected as exclusive office and retail leasing agent for the developer’s visionary transformation of Harborside, one of the most successful mixed-use office complexes in the tri-state area.
The CBRE team of Lee Cross, Suzanne Macnow, Gerry Miovski, David Opper, Mark Ravesloot, Arkady Smolyansky and Peter Turchin will represent Harborside’s office component, while Jay Miller and Marta Villa will represent the retail space.
“CBRE is honored to represent Mack-Cali and Harborside in what is, without doubt, one of the most exciting evolutions of an already highly successful office, retail and residential complex into the next generation of a strategically planned and interconnected, 24/7 environment,” said Mr. Turchin. “Harborside’s urban, mass transit-oriented and amenity-rich location on the Hudson River will be a unique work and lifestyle destination for millennial business talent.”
Mack-Cali plans to detail its vision for Harborside, including substantial renovations involving the re-design of interior common areas, outdoor public spaces, as well as retail, dining and entertainment options, at an event scheduled for September 17, 2014.
Mitchell E. Hersh, president and chief executive officer of Mack-Cali, said: “We plan to take further advantage of our spectacular Hudson River waterfront location by creating an improved public space, new state-of-the-art work spaces, modern urban living opportunities, a richer retail experience and unique dining options. The result will be an extremely desirable live-work-play environment sought by residents and various industries, including TAMI [tech, advertising, media and information] firms.”
Mack-Cali has partnered with Ironstate Development Company, one of the largest privately held real estate development companies in the Northeast and a visionary tri-state residential developer, in creating contemporary, interactive living options for Harborside’s evolving workforce. Designed by Dutch architecture firm Concrete, with HLW as architect of record, the planned 763-unit residential high-rise, the first in the three-tower rental development URL® Harborside, will be ready for occupancy in mid-2016, enhancing the work and lifestyle evolution of Harborside.
