Parsippany, NJ — What was once a 3-building office complex nestled in a former Mack-Cali corporate campus in Parsippany will soon become one of the hottest places to “live, work and play,” thanks to a $4.5 million capital improvement program and new state-of-the-art building upgrades and upscale amenities.
Bergman Real Estate Group, in partnership with Time Equities, Inc. announced its plans to introduce nearly a dozen trendsetting amenities to 4, 5 and 6 Century Dr., now known as “Century Campus.” The 280,000 s/f office park is comprised of three class B buildings, acquired last year from Mack-Cali by Bergman Real Estate Group and Time Equities, Inc. The property was 50% leased at the time of acquisition.
According to Michael Bergman, president and CEO of Bergman Real Estate Group, Century Campus reflects a 21st-century approach to the work environment which has dedicated space for work and play, an inspiring environment which encourages productivity while retaining a commanding professional presence. These amenities include:
• A 4,500 s/f executive lounge with a staffed espresso bar
• Media center with state-of-the-art screens and other multimedia equipment
• Seating areas outfitted with modern, comfortable furniture
• Co-working executive suites with glass walls sized for startups and entrepreneurs
• Game area with ping-pong and pool tables, TV and seating areas
• Shared conference and training center which tenants can use for large meetings, training sessions and more
• An art studio with instruction from local artists
• A massage room
• An app-based bike-sharing program which tenants can use to ride to lunch or travel around Century Campus
• Newly landscaped grounds with walking paths, seating areas and a Bocce ball court
• A fully-equipped gym and yoga studio coming in 2018
The game room, media center and executive lounge are slotted to open November 1, while the others will be completed in phases over the next several months. The bike sharing program is already available to Century Campus tenants.
According to Bergman, Century Campus will also undergo head-to-toe internal and external renovations. Extensive upgrades and renovations are being made to the buildings’ lobbies, corridors and bathrooms, as well as to landscaping, outdoor pathways and parking lots. n
The renovations and amenities are already having a positive impact on Century Campus. Several new long-term leases have been signed since acquiring the property a year ago, improving the occupancy.
“People spend their day at the office, so we want to make it as pleasing and comfortable as possible,” Bergman said. “All the services one could possibly need to be comfortable are located in one place.”
Century Campus is located near the intersection of Route 10 and Route 202, close to three of the state’s most highly traveled highways – I-287, 80 and 280. The complex is five minutes from the Morristown train station, a 35-minute drive to New York City and is close to Newark-Liberty International Airport.
Century Campus offers flexible floor plans with current availability ranging from 2,000 s/f to full-floor occupancies up to 35,000 s/f and a contiguous block of 60,000 s/f.
“The suburban office market needs to adapt and change to support how people work today,” Bergman said. “We’re creating a space for people not only to relax and help their productivity, but where they can actually conduct business or hold meetings as well,” Bergman said. “Such a state-of-the-art environment is not only impressive to clients, but inspiring for the people who work there. We’re seeing this trend not just in New Jersey, but all throughout the country, and we are proud to create such a positive working atmosphere for current and future tenants alike at Century Campus.”
