The 100 per- cent occupied property offers amenities such as assigned and covered parking, laundry facilities, a swimming pool, elevators, and an on-site su- perintendent and porter. Berger, based out of CBRE’s Saddle Brook office, said he was able to coordinate with Klapper in the New York City Outer Boroughs office, to find willing buyers outside the Garden State. Within three months of getting the as- signment, CBRE had several offers, including one from a West Coast buyer, which met or surpassed the owner’s ex- pectations.

“This sale is a prime ex- ample of how we were able to use the CBRE platform as a way of bringing our clients something that no other firm was able to provide – a buyer willing to pay the asking price,” Berger said. “We were able to bring in a number of interested buyers from out- side New Jersey who were willing to pay more than local buyers and a deal was struck immediately.” The building is located just two blocks away from a Tran- sit rail station, providing 30- minute access to New York City for commuters. Also eas- ily accessible is the Garden State Parkway, 1-280, and I-78. ■

sar and vice president Chris Hile represented Prologis. “The facility had previously been used for production and testing and, as such, was equipped with certain infra- structure that Hartz found attractive. That said, Hartz is planning to make a significant capital investment to convert the property into a modern research and development facility,” Chroman said. “The location works well for Hartz because it is close to the firm’s Secaucus headquarters, but

still allows for a separation of the business lines.” Jones Lang LaSalle is also serving as the sales broker for the Hartz’s former manufac- turing and R&D facility — a 16.5-acre redevelopment site located at 192 BloomfieldAve., in Bloomfield. The company phased out of the 400,000 s/f plant over an 18-month period starting in 2010, relocating the majority of its manufac- turing operations to other facilities it occupies around the country. ■
