SJP Project Solutions — the third-party construction and project management arm of owner and developer SJP Properties — has completed its build-out of Eisai’s new U.S. headquarters at ON3, a high-tech bio-ecosystem in Nutley, New Jersey. Eisai, an oncology and neurology-focused pharmaceutical company and the U.S. subsidiary of Eisai Co., Ltd., has relocated its U.S. headquarters from Woodcliff Lake, taking the entirety of 200 Metro Boulevard at ON3.
“New Jersey has a long history of serving as an incubator for some of the most innovative companies in the pharmaceutical and life science spaces and Eisai’s new headquarters at ON3 will set the standard for the future of the industry’s workplaces,” said Andrew Natale, Chief Operating Officer at SJP Project Solutions. “We are proud to have helped deliver a best-in-class headquarters that will support Eisai’s peerless standard of research and development, as well as its relentless focus on promoting teamwork, safety and innovation in the office.”
Eisai signed a lease for 300,000 square feet at the campus in August 2020 and tapped SJP Project Solutions to spearhead its delivery in conjunction with its in-house team. As part of this process, Project Solutions collaborated with ON3 owner Prism Capital Partners on the base-building improvements and worked closely with leading global architecture firms HLW and AMA on the design and build-out of the space. Eisai’s staff of approximately 1,200 corporate and R&D workers transferred to the new headquarters in Q1 of 2022.
