The CBRE team was also responsible for procuring the buyer, JLL Income Property Trust, aninstitutionally managed daily NAV REIT advised by LaSalle Investment Management with a portfolio valued at more than $3.3 billion.

Formerly a vacant 147,215± square foot office building, 170 Park recently underwent a massive transformation to a world-class life sciences facility.

The Design-Build Institute of America recently awarded 170 Parka National Award of Merit in the Industrial, Process and/or Research Facilities category.

CBRE Vice Chairman Mr. Dunne commented, “The seller, Celularity, and the entire design/construction team in partnership truly created one of the most advanced life sciencesfacilities in the country. JLL Income Property Trust fully understood the uniqueness and high-quality of the asset would be an excellent addition to its portfolio of geographically diverse, core assets.”

“The buyer pool for life sciences is very deep and this asset was no exception. Given LaSalle’s ownership of another building nearby, this was a natural acquisition target for them,” added Mr. Neuer, Executive Vice President, CBRE.

The sale of 170 Park Avenue comes on the heels of CBRE’s sale of neighboring Park Avenue at Morris County, locatedat 100-600 Campus Drive.
