Structure Will Provide 600 Additional Parking Spaces at Class A Office Complex
LIVINGSTON, N.J., Feb. 6, 2014 – A new five-story parking garage is nearing completion at Eisenhower Corporate Campus and Conference Center in Livingston, N.J. The new structure will provide 600 additional parking spaces for tenants and guests at the premier 380,000-square-foot Class A office complex. Eisenhower Corporate Campus is owned and managed by Eastman Companies of Livingston, N.J. along with its joint venture partner Long Wharf Real Estate Partners of Boston, Mass.
A headquarters-quality office facility, Eisenhower Corporate Campus offers corporate and professional tenants a strategic Essex County address complemented by exceptional on-site amenities. The new parking structure will offer LED lighting and enhanced state- of-the-art security features, according to Michael Schofel, Eastman Companies’ co-managing partner.
Parking is a crucial amenity and competitive advantage in both suburban and urban locations today. “The addition of the parking garage reflects our commitment to accommodating the ongoing requirements of our existing and future tenants,” Schofel noted. “To this end, Eastman continues to push ahead to anticipate the needs of our tenants while maintaining and enhancing the high standards of this desirable property.”
Eastman Internal Capabilities Include Full-service Development and Construction
According to Peter Schofel, Eastman Companies’ co- managing partner, the new parking garage is a great example of the broad scope of commercial real estate services that the company provides, from management and development, to the construction expertise required to execute and oversee new projects from concept to completion. Built by the award-winning affiliate, Eastman Construction Company, the parking garage was erected with pre-cast concrete panels. “This building method offers greater strength and impermeability, as well as superior durability,” Schofel commented. “The panels are constructed in a factory setting under controlled conditions and undergo routine quality inspections, assuring adherence to stringent design standards.”
Eisenhower Corporate Campus 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, 100 percent green power supplied along with onsite 1/3 MW solar system, four electric car charging stations, 24-hour security, and a professionally supervised state-of-the-art fitness center. In addition, the fully equipped on-site Eisenhower Conference Center with teleconferencing capabilities is available for a variety of business functions ranging from small meetings to large corporate conferences. The property energy systems are supported by solar panels, and tenants benefit from individually zoned and operated HVAC units.
