Woodbridge Corporate Plaza is a six-building, Class A office plaza comprised of over 629,000 rentable square feet. Amenities at the campus include a cafe, shuttle, on site management and fitness center with classes and locker rooms. These highly flexible buildings support a diverse tenant mix and are all steel framed and reinforced with concrete slab on metal deck and foundations. The property also recently won The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Award in the Renovated Building category, which is a prestigious award for the commercial real estate industry.
Located in Iselin, New Jersey, the property is easily accessible for commuters with three interstate highways and two highly traveled business routes nearby, including US-1. It is also in close proximity to Newark Airport and the Metro Park train station, allowing access to both New Jersey Transit and Amtrak routes.
The Central New Jersey office market experienced increased demand and a strong fourth quarter of 2018. According to Cushman & Wakefield’s Central New Jersey Office Q4 2018 report, the vacancy rates declined 70 basis points to its lowest point since 2016. In fact, Woodbridge/Edison was among New Jersey counties that posted the most significant year-over-year vacancy decrease.
“Woodbridge Corporate Plaza offers tenants a premier place to do business,” said Stephen Close, senior vice president for KBS and asset manager for the property. “With its amenities and accessibility, we continue to see tenants’ employees enjoying the campus.”
Recent upgrades to the property include adding an outdoor patio to the cafeteria, full restroom and common corridor renovations, HVAC/BMS upgrades for better energy efficiency and cost savings for tenants, a 6,000 SF+ fitness center with locker rooms and re-milling and repaving the parking lot for Building F. KBS plans to complete the parking lot for Building C in 2019 as well continuing with more restrooms and common corridors and replacing all roof anchors at the campus.
“We are pleased to see our creative and unique enhancements that we made to Woodbridge be so well received by both new and existing tenants,” said Marc DeLuca, regional president for KBS.
