FLORHAM PARK, NJ- HFF announced the sale of Park Square, a 159-unit, luxury apartment community located in downtown Rahway, New Jersey.
HFF marketed the transit-oriented property on behalf of the Landmark Companies.  Roseland Property Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, purchased the asset for $46.5 million, or nearly $292,500 per unit.
Completed in two phases between 2009 and 2011, Park Square is located at the intersection of Irving and Main Streets in downtown Rahway and is two blocks from the Rahway transit station, providing access to midtown Manhattan and other suburban locations.  Consisting of two four-story buildings, the community is 94 percent leased and has homes averaging 1,176 square feet each.  Community amenities include two fitness centers, community room with Wi-Fi, outdoor lounge, billiards room and covered parking.  The property also has approximately 6,000 square feet of street-level retail.
The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by Kevin O’Hearn, Jose Cruz and Michael Oliver from HFF’s New Jersey office along with Andrew Scandalios and Jeff Julien from HFF’s New York City office.
“In Mack-Cali/Roseland’s first apartment purchase in New Jersey since their merger, they did an outstanding job of working through some items that arose during the process and solving them efficiently and effectively.  Their investment in Rahway is a tremendous endorsement for the town and its growing downtown Arts District, as well as a testament to the high-quality property developed by Landmark,” said O’Hearn.
