Eastman Management Corp., the Livingston, New Jersey- based owner, developer and manager of northern New Jersey office, commercial and retail properties, has once again set a benchmark for charity fund-raising with its ECC Cares Program, a unique fund-raising concept that prompted individuals to register at www.eise nhowercorporatecampus.com to enter for a chance to win funds for their favorite charitable cause. The Fund is named for the landmark Eisenhower Corporate Campus, an Eastman property in Livingston, New Jersey, to commemorate its award- winning history and recently-launched leasing campaign.
According to Eastman Management President, Peter Schofel, the ECC Cares Campaign is unique to the real estate industry. “The ECC Cares Fund represents yet another chapter in Eastman’s continuing commitment to the betterment of the communities in which we operate and provides us with a most gratifying opportunity to share our good fortune with others less fortunate,” he said. “We are proud to partner with the ECC Cares winners and extend our sincere thanks to all who registered and helped to expand the value of the Fund.
Selected as winners of the ECC Cares Fund were: Ron Grossman of Novartis Pharmaceuticals; Thomas McGovern, Realogy; Eric Friedman, EversonBest; John Bonbamo, St. Barnabas Health Care System; Michelle Myer, Oracle; Maria Percontino, Prudential Financial; and James Scancarella of Cresa Partners.
The winners designated the following charities to benefit from their good fortune: The Midland School, Junior Achievement of Northern New Jersey, Autism Awareness, St. Barnabas Medical Center, Red Cross, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, and The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation.
Owned and managed by Eastman Management Corp., with leasing and marketing handled by The Garibaldi Group of Chatham, New Jersey, Eisenhower Corporate Campus is a 380,000 sq. ft. Classs A headquarters-quality office facility situated on 33.5 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. The complex boasts unrivaled amenities including a 300-seat full- service underground executive parking and zoned heating/HVAC units. Eisenhower Corporate Campus is comprised of four interconnecting buildings with extremely flexible floor plates. While the building is ideally suited to a single tenant as a national or regional headquarters operation, a Garibaldi spokesperson notes that the property is being marketed for full-building or multi-tenant occupancy with space divisible down to units of 30,000 square feet.
Eisenhower Corporate Campus is surrounded by some of New jersey’s most distinct and upscale residential communities, and offers access to an exceptional labor pool, quality hotels and convention centers, restaurants, first class health care providers, and a variety of retail and recreation opportunities. The site is directly accessible to Route I-280 and is only minutes from Interstates 78, 80 and 287, and the Garden Sate Parkway. Newark Liberty International and Morristown Airports, the Hudson River crossings to New York City, and mass transportation facilities also are in close proximity to the site.
Eastman has been in business for over twenty five years and is a recognized leader in high quality real-estate developments with property throughout northern New Jersey. Eastman is headquartered in Livingston and boasts a portfolio of more than 1.6 million square feet of office, retail, and industrial space located in Essex, Bergen, Morris and Burlington Counties.
