The trade comes almost three years after Prism acquired the eight-building, 800,000 s/f, class A asset in a joint venture with Angelo, Gordon & Co . “We added tremendous val- ue during our ownership of Princeton Pike Corporate Cen- ter,” said Edwin Cohen , prin- cipal partner. “The improving economy brought renewed velocity to the office leasing market, and we capitalized on that through significant capital improvements and ag- gressive leasing.” “Our purchase acumen was proved correct through the considerable profit we earned,” said Eugene Diaz, principal partner, Prism Capital Part- ners LLC. After the 2013 acquisition, Prism, as operating partner, immediately launched a multi- million-dollar capex program at Princeton Pike Corporate Center. Highlights included a dynamic new entrance, confer- ence center and café and new restrooms at the flagship 989 Lenox Drive; the conversion of 1000 Lenox Dr. from single to multi tenancy featuring a soaring new entrance lobby;

and new building entrances, an outstanding new atrium, conference center and café at 1009 Lenox Dr. Elevator and HVAC modernizations; updated restrooms; and new lighting, wall coverings, paint and carpeting were among the upgrades at select buildings, with parking lot repaving, new roofs and other exterior renovations at others. “This work successfully el- evated the property’s profile, and established an environ- ment that fosters both tenant retention and new leasing interest,” Cohen said. “And as companies began to come off the sidelines to make strategic real estate decisions and posi-

tion themselves for growth, Princeton Pike Corporate Cen- ter became a preferred choice.” Under the Prism/Angelo Gordon ownership, new ten- ants including J. Knipper and Company Inc., Eckert Sea- mans Cherin andMellott LLC, Adare Pharmaceuticals, Foun- dation Asset Management and Management Planning Inc. leased space, while many oth- ers – such as Johnson Mirmi- ran & Thompson, Langan En- gineering, Ameriprise Hold- ings and Navigant Consulting – expanded their presence or renewed in place. Today Princ- eton Pike Corporate Center is more than 90% leased. Other key tenants include Sirius

properties in robust markets, work to enhance the tenant experience through hands-on management and capital im- provements, and build leasing momentum that will continue for years to come.” The Bloom- field, N.J., firm remains in active acquisition mode.
