Jones Lang LaSalle Announces Completion of Metrotop Plaza, New Jersey’s Newest Speculatively Built Office Building in Metropark, N.J.

Immediate full-building availability offers companies high visibility, high-performance infrastructure and full-service amenities right off Garden State Parkway


ISELIN, N.J., June 16, 2010 — Jones Lang LaSalle announced today the completion of Metrotop Plaza a 255,000-square-foot, Class A office building in Metropark, N.J.  Owned by Atlantic Realty, the nine-story office property offers immediate occupancy in a world-class office environment with direct access to and visibility from the Garden State Parkway and Metropark train station.

As New Jersey’s newest speculatively built office building, Metrotop Plaza features an array of high-quality amenities, including a full-service cafeteria with private dining area, an 8,000-square-foot Tenant Event Center on the top floor, covered parking, and a fitness center with locker rooms and showers. The building is also equipped with high-performance infrastructure and the latest building technology features, such as on-site security and 24-hour camera monitoring, redundant electrical feed from two substations, 550 tons of supplemental cooling,  two generator pads for tenant generators, and OC3 fiber tap.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Managing Director Paul Giannone, Vice President Kevin Carton, and Leasing Associate Eric Sobel are heading the exclusive leasing and marketing efforts.

“In terms of location, quality and building amenities, Metrotop represents the best opportunity in Central New Jersey for companies in search of prominent visibility and the value inherent on new construction,” stated Giannone. “The access to mass public transportation and major thoroughfares is unrivalled at this location.  Combined with the comprehensive amenities and technologies of this building, Metrotop will serve to enhance the business operations of any tenant desiring to provide their employees with a convenient and productive work environment.”

Metrotop Plaza adjoins an existing 80,000-square-foot, fully leased building that currently serves as numerous quality tenants including Cisco Systems, New Horizons and one of Jones Lang LaSalle’s own regional offices.

“The fact that Metrotop was chosen as a regional office location by Jones Lang LaSalle, one of the world’s largest real estate companies, is testament to the superior desirability and convenience of this location,” added Carton. 

Metrotop is divisible by floors of 30,000 square feet. Situated on the highest elevation in Metropark, the building is located within walking distance to Amtrak service at the Metropark Train Station, and is approximately 13 miles from Newark Liberty International Airport and a 40-minute train ride to New York Penn Station.

Signage opportunities are available to new tenants offering great visibility from tens of thousands of commuters who travel the Garden State Parkway each day.

Metropark consists primarily of large office buildings and lies in the southwestern corner of Iselin, overlapping into neighboring Edison, and includes New Jersey Transit and Amtrak service. In addition to a Hilton Hotel, Metropark also features the regional headquarters locations of Siemens, Prudential, Cisco and J.M. Huber.

Other corporate tenants of Metrotop office park include the law firm of Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith, Ravin, Davis & Himmel, Tata Consultants, Ernst & Young, Wells Fargo, Accenture and UBS AG.
