WARREN, NJ — A joint venture partnership between affiliates of Vision Real Es- tate Partners and Ruben- stein Partners, L.P. an- nounced that Everest Reinsur- ance Company has signed a 315,000 s/f long-term lease to relocate the corporate head- quarters of its U.S. operations to Warren Corporate Center in Warren.

and echoes their dynamic lifestyles. Our goal is to pro- vide them with an abundant setting where they can learn, grow, and achieve their full potential,” said Sam Mor- reale , founding and managing partner of Vision Real Estate Partners. “When thoughtfully programmed, suburban cam- puses like Warren Corporate Center can provide tenants and their talent with the ideal mix of full-service amenities and desirable outdoor spaces – a balance that is difficult to achieve in a more urban location.”
Rubenstein and Vision have collaborated on Warren Hill and the other elements of their business plan for the property while a large existing tenant has continued to occupy a majority of the campus. That tenant is working through a phased relocation, creating the opportunity for new ten- ants to move into the updated campus. “We believe we’ve created a fully-amenitized and differen- tiated product that the subur- ban New Jersey office market is embracing,” said Stephen Card , principal at Rubenstein.
