Mack-Cali Realty Corporation and CBRE Group, Inc. announced that CBRE has been selected as exclusive office and retail leasing agent for the developer’s transformation of Harborside, the mixed-use office complex in Jersey City.
The CBRE team of Lee Cross, Suzanne Macnow, Gerry Miovski, David Opper, Mark Ravesloot, Arkady Smolyansky and Peter Turchin will represent Harborside’s office component, while Jay Miller and Marta Villa will represent the retail space.
Mack-Cali plans to detail its vision for Harborside, including substantial renovations involving the re-design of interior common areas, outdoor public spaces, as well as retail, dining and entertainment options, at an event scheduled for September 17, 2014.
Mitchell E. Hersh, president and chief executive officer of Mack-Cali, said: “We plan to take further advantage of our spectacular Hudson River waterfront location by creating an improved public space, new state-of-the-art work spaces, modern urban living opportunities, a richer retail experience and unique dining options.
“The result will be an extremely desirable live-work-play environment sought by residents and various industries, including TAMI [tech, advertising, media and information] firms.”
Mack-Cali has partnered with Ironstate Development Company in creating contemporary, interactive living options for Harborside’s evolving workforce. Designed by Dutch architecture firm Concrete, with HLW as architect of record, the planned 763-unit residential high-rise, the first in the three-tower rental development URL Harborside, will be ready for occupancy in mid-2016.
