ATERSON, NJ —One day before the 74th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking baseball’s color barrier, politicians and real estate executives joined at Hinchliffe Stadium in Pa- terson to mark the beginning of the restoration of the ball- park, one of just two remain- ing stadium structures that hosted Negro League baseball games.

lighting, scoreboard and seat- ing areas. In addition to the 7,800-seat athletic facility, the project also includes ground- up development of: • A 12,000 s/f restaurant and event space that will pay homage to the professional and high school athletic ex- ploits at Hinchliffe Stadium, as well as related racial issues • A six-story, USGBC LEED Platinum-certified afford- able senior housing building featuring 75 studio, one- and two-bedroom units • A 5,200 s/f preschool; and • A 314-space structured parking garage “Hinchliffe Stadium is the largest catalytic investment in a generation,” said Mayor Sayegh. “By taking one of our most dormant and underuti- lized sites with deep historic significance, we are laying the foundation for city-wide re- investment and opportunity. We are witnessing a one-in- a-lifetime transformation and I’m proud of our public-private partners who have helped

usher in this complex project.” Cons t ruc t ed i n 1932 , Hinchliffe Stadium was once home to the New York Black Yankees and New York Cu- bans in an era when many of baseball’s most talented players were barred from the sport’s biggest stage. “The Hinchliffe Stadium redevelopment will have a significant impact in Pater- son and provide an economic boost for New Jersey as we begin our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. In addi- tion to paying homage to the achievements of Black baseball legends, this project will create jobs, provide much-needed af- fordable housing for seniors, and bring valuable commu- nity assets to Paterson.” said NJEDA chief executive of- ficer Tim Sullivan . “Today’s groundbreaking honors this historic landmark and reminds us all that New Jersey values diversity and is committed to supporting and celebrating the greatness of people from all backgrounds.” MAREJ the landlord, PatriarchMan- agement LP , in the lease to tenant, Johnson Controls, Inc., at 1400 Pennbrook Parkway; and the seller, Triumph Con- trols, LLC in the transaction of 205 Church Rd. to buyer, Alpha Strata, LLC. According to Newmark Research, the Montgomery County submarket has been a significant beneficiary of ac - celerating industrial activity across Southeastern Pennsyl- vania. Tenant demand from a diverse group of industrial occupiers has trimmed vacan- cy in Montgomery County’s inventory by 60 basis points over the past year, to 6.7% in the first quarter of 2021. In turn, tightening market conditions drove rent growth of 31.0% over the same period, and new development has bro- ken ground to meet occupier needs for space. MAREJ
