—Prudential Real Estate Investors has opened its new corporate headquarters at 7 Giralda Farms in Madison. The firm had previously been located in Parsippany.
7 Giralda Farms provides PREI with an open floor plan and convenient access to New York City. In addition, the new office space is more energy-efficient than the Parsippany office with PREI seeking LEED Platinum certification, in keeping with its socially responsiblepolicy adopted in 2011.
PREI spent nearly 15 years in its previous location at 8 Campus Drive in Parsippany. The new Giralda Farms headquarters is situated in a wooded office park that is also home to several other large, well-known firms.
Constructed in 2000, the building offers PREI covered parking, direct elevator-to-office access and close proximity to Convent Station. In addition, an employee shuttle, cafeteria and exercise facility is also available.
Giralda Farms was originally the estate of Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge, the daughter of financier William Rockefeller and the wife of Marcellus Hartley Dodge, chairman of the Remington Arms Company. Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge purchased the property and gave it to the Borough of Madison to honor her son, who was killed in an automobile accident in 1935. Following Dodge’s death in 1973, the property was converted into a corporate park.
