Seton Hall University com- mitted to leasing two major buildings and 16 acres on the campus. Improvements to convert those facilities to ac- commodate the needs of the new Seton Hall-Hackensack Meridian Graduate School of Medicine are underway. Seton Hall will co-locate its Col- lege of Nursing and School of Health and Medical Sciences at the site, and Hackensack Meridian plans to create a National Health Institute- designated Clinical Research Center there as well. Additionally, approximately 150,000 square feet in R&D/ lab facility leases for state- of-the-art existing product are currently in negotiation, according to Prism Capital Partners. “We already have an out- standing, long-term anchor in place and mounting interest for opportunities at ON3,” noted Prism’s Edwin Cohen, principal partner. “At the same time, we are working closely with the Township of Nutley, City of Clifton and a team of

consultants to develop a vi- brant mixed-use, multi-user plan.” ON3 provides Prism with an opportunity create a show- place for the “new urbanist” philosophy that is driving New Jersey’s suburban mu- nicipalities to redesign their downtowns and commercial corridors. “Growing demand for 24/7 convenience living is resulting in better-balanced business centers that provide a blend of housing options and appealing amenities,” said the firm’s Eugene Diaz, principal partner. “We are committed to producing an attractive and profitable campus – one sensitive to potential concerns about traffic and quality of life for the larger community.” Development of the ON3 website is underway; it will provide detailed plans, time- lines and other important information. Other efforts to engage members of the com- munity and ensure transpar- ency throughout the long-term project are being planned as well. n
