Transaction is the latest step in executing plan to dispose of suburban office assets and refocus on Hudson County Waterfront portfolio
JERSEY CITY, N.J., Sept. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE:CLI) today announced the strategic sale of a 10-building, 1.5 million-square-foot commercial portfolio in Morris County, NJ to a joint venture group, including Onyx Equities, Taconic Capital Advisors, L.P., Axonic Capital LLC, and Machine Investment Group for approximately $160 million. The portfolio includes nine buildings located in Parsippany, NJ and a building in Madison, NJ.
"This transaction is exemplary of Mack-Cali's broader strategic vision moving forward," said MaryAnne Gilmartin, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Mack-Cali. "As we look to focus on our waterfront assets in Hudson County, we will continue to divest of non-core assets in the suburban office markets and build long-term value for our shareholders."
In July 2020, Mack-Cali appointed MaryAnne Gilmartin as Interim CEO to help secure a permanent CEO and develop and implement a strategic plan that will ensure the ongoing success of the Company. This sale follows Mack-Cali's earlier disposition of 3 Giralda Farms in Madison, NJ for $7.8 million in July.
"This transaction was a tremendous team effort and its execution is a testament to the collaboration between both sides of the deal to navigate the unique obstacles presented by the pandemic," explained Ricardo Cardoso, EVP and Chief Investment Officer of Mack-Cali.
