LIFTON, NJ — A well-attended broker reception this spring highlighted the transforma- tion of 1255 Broad St. in Clif- ton to a multi-tenant cam- pus. The 194,000 s/f former Roche facility is now home to the U.S. headquarters oper- ation of Comodo Group, Inc. and regional headquarters for URS Corporation; Cush- man & Wakefield , which co-hosted the event with property owner Normandy Real Estate Partners , is marketing the balance of the property for lease. According to Cushman & Wakefield’s David DeMat- teis and Marc Trevisan , who are based at the com- mercial real estate services firm’s East Rutherford, NJ office, 50 industry profes- sionals came out to tour the property. DeMatteis noted that the one-year anniver- sary of Roche vacating the building provided a perfect opportunity for the broker- age community to see 1255 Broad St. up and running as a multi-tenant environment for the first time. “The building is construct- ed with 20,000 s/f floor plates in pods that have their own lobbies and building sys- tems,” DeMatteis said. “This C

distinguishes the property from a flexibility standpoint. For example, a tenant with a 40,000 s/f requirement can have a private headquarters identity either horizontally or vertically, each with all the benefits of a campus environment. A tenant need- ing 20,000 s/f can have a full floor with great window lines that support today’s popular open office layout. Each floor also is easily divisible. This means we can accommodate tenants requiring less office space and still provide them with great visibility; a ten- ant needing 5,000 s/f could

have a double glass entry door off one of the main lob- bies.” Tenants at 1255 Broad St. all benefit from the class A property’s location at the intersection of the Garden State Parkway and Route 3; strong ownership; and on- site amenities including an executive garage, cafeteria, conference center, fitness facility with locker rooms and showers, and climate- controlled storage space.

While both partners have ex- tensive technical experience, Marian as a soil scientist and Mark as a geologist, they fo- cus on different aspects of the business. Young commented, “We are extremely honored to be select- ed. The Award really goes to ALL of BrightFields’ team for their faith in the company, for the incredibly hard work they personally put in to pull Bright- Fields out of the recession, and for their commitment to grow and expand our service lines and our geographic footprint.” Lannan and Young devote significant time and resources to supporting community proj- ects and organizations. Over the past 5 years, they and BrightFields have given $35K and hundreds of hours of in- kind service to non-profits, including the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation, and Habitat for Humanity. n
