Following Kislak’s recom- mendation, the $136 million sale of Rachel Gardens to Cammeby’s was approved by the sellers. Cammeby’s offer was $1 million above the list- ing price with a considerable non-contingent deposit and no due diligence. Three other interested parties made offers at $135 million. “Given the limited period during which we marketed the property, Jeff and our team generated an extraordinary level of interest and ultimately produced the highest and best price, which was $1 million above the listing price,” said Holland. “I am immensely proud of our team and its accomplishments. Time and again, we produce astonishing results of record cap rates and prices for our clients strength- ening our reputation as the most successful broker of mul- tifamily and other investment properties in and around New Jersey.” continued on page 4A and NJ is offering attractive incentives that will help to cap- ture those jobs,” said Maurice Ades , Rugby Realty’s principal and managing director. “We recognized 300 Lighting Way as one of the best options avail- able to fill those requirements, and that’s a focus in our leasing program.” Roughly half of the build- ing, or 156,000 s/f on three contiguous floors, is available for lease, creating an excellent opportunity for a large corporate tenant. If a single tenant were to take the entire space, there is an additional opportunity to secureprominent signage on the building’s exterior.

HowRestacking your office can saveYOUmoney

L ately, Restacking has become a buzzword in Corporate America. But what does it really mean, and how and why does a company go about restacking? Restack- ing is described as a “Compre- hensive Space Reallocation.” Two of the most expensive costs to a corporation are em- ployees and office space. Cor- porations are looking for ways to capitalize on both of these aspects, and the approach to restacking office space has emerged. This approach in- cludes becoming the “employer of choice” thus far maximizing the real estate by utilizing the space better. Today, business roles are scattered and rules are being rewritten daily. Research indi- cates that people communicate based on their generational backgrounds. Learning to com- municate with different genera- tions can eliminate confronta- tions and misunderstandings. Add these components, along with the need to get more of- fice space, while still being the “employer of choice” can cause a lot of headaches. Restacking takes the tradi- tional sized workstation of 7x9 (63 s/f) and squeezes it into a tighter footprint of 7x7 (49 s/f). By restacking 100 employees from 63 s/f to 49 s/f you have just created the potential to add 28 more people into the building! But what about “hard walled office personnel?” Frus- tration and headaches for the Facility Manager can arise when “cubicle people” are being

come, first serve basis daily, or add touchdown stations within a department to accommodate specific employees so interac- tion is easily maintained. Re- gardless of which approach is used, personal space for each tele-commuter of either a locker or rolling file cabinet should be offered so the employee has space to lock up files or a purse as needed. Additionally, since the perception will be that you are taking space away from employees, you may have to consider increasing perk space to enhance the workplace by adding spaces like a gym, day- care center, or coffee bar. Overall, as office space be- comes more expensive, it is wise to utilize the maximum potential of the space available. Whether it be by re-purposing and re-utilizing existing fur- niture or purchasing newer smaller workstations to add people, this can be accom- plished once the entire orga- nization is on board with the plan. When restacking is ap- proached properly there is less frustration and no headaches if planning and communication is properly coordinated. n

squeezed, however the office spaces of 10x15 remain luxuri- ous. Some acceptable methods to restacking across the orga- nizational chart would include: doubling up office space, using demountable walls to down- size the office footprint or even eliminating offices and placing everyone in a workstation. As space is constricted, the need for privacy arises. In order to accommodate the need for privatemeetings, phone calls or interviews; space called “hud- dle rooms” and informal meet- ing areas are created. A ratio of huddle rooms to workstations is determined depending on how in-depth the restack is. Another scenario that should be taken into consideration as a potential perk are employees that “work from home” but are still expected in the office once or twice a week. To eliminate an assigned workstation per employee; touch down stations or hoteling is created within the space to accommodate the tele-commuter. Various approaches to hoteling work depending on the organization; create a pool of hoteling sta- tions that are used on a first

Colliers names Norris as property manager

Team recognized for relocation of GAF headquarters CBRE wins NAIOP’s “office deal of the year” award

said Louis Kousouris , presi- dent and principal of Colliers. Prior to joining Colliers, Norris was a real estate man- ager for Digital Realty Trust in Chantilly, VA, where he managed the preparation of budgets and reports, super- vised payment processes and oversaw lease compliance. Previously, he was property manager for First Potomac Realty Trust , building man- ager for Mack-Cali Realty Corp. , property manager for Monday Properties and as- sistant property manager for CB Richard Ellis . Norris holds a Virginia real estate license. He earned his Bachelor of Science in global business and public policy from the University of Maryland. n

ADDLE BROOK, NJ — CBRE Group, Inc. an- nounced that its team of Jeff Babikian , executive vice president, and Brian Godau , vice president, was awarded NAIOP ’s prestigious “Office Deal of the Year” award. CBRE was recognized for representing GAF, which pur- chased One Campus Dr., a 377,000 s/f office building in Parsippany, NJ, that will serve as the company’s new corporate headquarters. The sale marked one of the largest office building transactions in New Jersey in 2013 and was instrumental in retaining GAF’s headquarters within the state. “Despite a focus on GAF’s cost savings initiatives, we were able to keep a prominent company located in New Jer- sey by evaluating all options and we’re honored that an organization such as NAIOP recognized all the hard work that went into making this happen,” said Babikian. “The price for this property on a per-square-foot basis was far S

below any replacement or new construction cost for a building of this size and quality. This allowed GAF to invest in the space itself to accommodate its specific needs and create a world class headquarters environment.” Subsequent to the sale, GAF launched a $30 million dol- lar renovation project, led by Normandy Partners , to bring the building up to cur- rent commercial standards and create a LEED certified, class A headquarters facility. “The major challenge that we faced in this deal, which I think the NAIOP team rec- ognized, was that we needed to secure approval from the municipality for GAF’s in- tended office and R&D use of the space in a relatively short timeframe,” said Godau. “In addition, the purchase was arranged by the property’s special servicer through a bid process. We needed to fully understand the competitors to determine if GAF’s bid was high enough to ensure it would be selected, yet remain within say has been with SVN-Miller since 2009, and has handled in-house property manage- ment and lease administration for the last 3 years.

And the team was able to accomplish all this.” GAF’s approximately 600 employees working at the com- pany’s current headquarters in Wayne are expected to transfer to the new location in early 2015. The new site will allow for continued growth, resulting in job retention for the state and potential future jobs, while at the same time providing GAF with the easy access to key roadways and the high vis- ibility the company had sought. “Throughout the process, the CBRE and GAF teams demonstrated ample patience in following an arduous and tactful process,” said Jeff Hip- schman , senior managing director, CBRE New Jersey. “The transaction proved to be a great success, not just for CBRE and for GAF, but for the Parsippany market and New Jersey, as a whole. I’m glad NAIOP was able to appreci- ate the value of this deal and recognize all its benefits and potential benefits for the New Jersey job market.” n Over the course of the next 18 months, Lindsay will complete in-depth education on topics including but not limited to financial tools, marketing & leasing, and managing the physical asset. “We are excited that Lindsay is pursuing her CPM designation to better serve our clients. It is our goal to provide the highest level of service to our client base, and the knowledge that Lindsay will gain from the classes needed to receive her designation is invaluable,” said Miller. n
