Case Study

JLL breaks ground on Lexus Facility in Parsippany

Jones Lang LaSalle broke ground in early April on the Lexus Eastern Area Office and Training Facility at 300 Webro Road in Parsippany, NJ. The 32,000-square-foot office and warehouse facility will serve as a training center for Lexus dealerships throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

Challenge
JLL was retained by Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. in September 2012 to provide project management services for the construction of the facility, and to spearhead efforts to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Commercial Interiors certification for the facility.

Approach
The JLL team overseeing the project management assignment is led by Jerry Sullivan, senior project manager, and supported by Eric Brown, project manager. The group handling LEED certification is led by Dana Schneider, senior vice president, and includes Jasmine Davis, project manager.

“JLL has a longstanding brokerage relationship throughout the United States with TMS,” said Sullivan. “While the company has regularly outsourced for project management support, TMS’s real estate executives were particularly impressed with our local experience, our attention to detail and our strength managing complex projects with LEED initiatives.”

The Lexus Eastern Area Office and Training Facility will encompass approximately 20,000 square feet of administrative and presentation space, and 10,000 square feet of high-end training space, with 16 high-tech training bays. The facility will allow TMS to train up to 16 different teams simultaneously with a great deal of flexibility. The facility was designed so that trainers can place cars right into the training rooms to demonstrate the latest Lexus diagnostic and service equipment and techniques.

JLL has incorporated sustainable construction practices into the completion of the project. These efforts include:
• Daylight sensors in office and warehouse space
• Zoning controls, for more than 75 percent of the space
• Efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning units that meet the high-performance efficiency requirements
• Plug stations for high efficiency cars
• 40 percent reduction in water usage
• 20 percent reduction in energy usage
• The construction manager salvaged construction materials that were repurposed by Habitat for Humanity for future projects

Results
JLL broke ground on the Lexus Eastern Area Office and Training Facility in early April, with construction expected to be completed in late August.
