Normandy Real Estate Partners, one of the largest real estate developers, owners and operators of commercial office buildings in the US, has formed a partnership with service provider, Cassidy Turley.
The alliance aims to leverage the strengths of their respective platforms in the New Jersey market by Normandy naming Cassidy Turley as the leasing agent for a significant portion of its New Jersey office portfolio totaling approximately 1.1 million square feet.

“I would like to thank my long time friend and partner Ray for his exceptional leadership at Normandy and wish him well in his new role.
“We look forward to continuing to work in partnership with Ray and Bill and the team at Cassidy Turley in building on our success and value creation within our New Jersey portfolio.”
