SJP Properties reveals 64,000 s/f interior office build-out
Iselin, NJ — SJP Properties has announced the completion of TIAA’s 64,000 s/f interior office build-out at 194 Wood Ave. South in Metropark. TIAA, a leading Fortune 100 financial services organization, tapped SJP Project Solutions, SJP’s third-party project and construction management division, to oversee the space’s execution.
SJP is the original owner and developer of 194 Wood Ave. South, a 470,692 s/f, headquarters-quality office tower that was owned by AIG at the time of the project, and later sold by AIG in August of this year. TIAA selected SJP Project Solutions for its redevelopment expertise, superior relationships with subcontractors, ability to work quickly, and knowledge of the property; Project Solutions finished the entire build-out in just under nine weeks.
“This is now a more modern workplace — the best quality interior space in Metropark — that effectively brings TIAA’s employees and operations into the future,” said Peter Bronsnick, president - New Jersey Region, SJP Properties. “These two floors at 194 Wood Ave. represent the changes we can expect to see across the market as we continue to reimagine office configurations and design to keep employees comfortable, safe, and performing optimally.”
The Project Solutions team transformed what was a traditional suburban office installation into an open-concept floor plan with plenty of natural light, multiple collaborative work areas across two floors, and an interconnecting interior staircase. The property’s condition and SJP’s ownership knowledge allowed the building to be easily refreshed, with the right expertise, standing the test of time and showing TIAA’s investment in its culture and ability to provide a modern workplace that helps recruit, attract and retain talent.
