Eastman Companies Enhances “Work/Life” Environment at Eisenhower Corporate Campus in Livingston

Award-Winning Class A Office Complex Offers Upscale Fitness, Dining and Conference Amenities  

LIVINGSTON, N.J. – Creating office environments that allow today’s workforce to achieve greater work/life balance is paramount for commercial property owners. At Eisenhower Corporate Campus (ECC) in Livingston, N.J., state-of-the art conference facilities, fitness and dining amenities enhance and simplify the lives of tenants and employees – even on their busiest workdays.

The 385,000-square-foot Class A office complex, located at 290 W. Mount Pleasant Avenue, is owned and managed by Eastman Companies along with joint venture partner Long Wharf Real Estate Partners of Boston, Mass.

In 2008, Eastman embarked on a multimillion dollar capital improvement campaign to completely renovate and reposition ECC in order to meet the evolving needs of today’s corporate tenants and accommodate a growing millennial workforce, according to Michael Schofel, managing partner.

“Our strategic reinvestment in ECC has played a key role in the number of new leases and renewals we have secured in recent years,” Schofel said. “The ongoing excitement of our current tenants and demand from prospective tenants is a testament to the premier business environment that we have created here.”

Premier Class A Office Setting

Home to a broad range of corporate tenants – including Verizon, John Hancock Life Insurance Co., Veritext and Citrin Cooperman – ECC is comprised of four interconnecting buildings set on 33.5 acres of exquisitely landscaped grounds. Campus amenities include a full-service cafeteria with catering capabilities, 24-hour security, electric car charging stations and a 600-vehicle parking structure with LED lighting and enhanced security features.

In addition, the fully equipped Eisenhower Conference Center with a 200-seat auditorium is available for a variety of business functions ranging from small meetings to large corporate conferences. On-site fitness amenities include a tenant-only fitness center, personal training at It’s Beyond Fitness, indoor cycling at Hills Fit Studio and appointment-only massage services from New Jersey Massage.

ECC recently earned the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance. Green actions implemented at the complex include the completion of a 420 kW solar installation project designed to provide green power, reduce the building’s carbon footprint and lower operational costs; and the addition of four electric car charging stations. In 2014, ECC received “The Outstanding Building of the Year” (TOBY) honor from the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA).

Situated in the heart of the West Essex corridor, ECC is just minutes from shopping, restaurants and the county seats of Morris and Essex counties. It offers tenants direct access to Route 280 and is easily accessible to Interstates 78, 80, 287, the Garden State Parkway and Newark Liberty International Airport. The strategic location of ECC is in proximity to a number of universities and exceptional labor pools, enhancing its position as one of New Jersey’s most business-friendly and accessible office addresses.

ECC is approaching 100 percent occupancy, with availabilities that include several small office units and a spectacular 15,400-square-foot space located on the building’s top floor. Some windowless spaces come with a view of the building’s interior atrium frontage; all three floors are open to the atrium below and each level is bordered by cascading foliage.

“Some of the small offices are being marketed through our new leasing program, PreBuilt by Eastman,” noted Schofel. The program provides a turnkey office solution ideally suited for professionals, solo practitioners, startup operations, entrepreneurs and branch and satellite offices. A flexible lease structure streamlines the process so tenants can move in and start working in a matter of days. For more information, visit www.prebuiltbyeastman.com.
