Mirabaud Asset Management completes acquisition of US office campus in New Jersey

Geneva, 23 June 2021 – Mirabaud Asset Management working alongside Miami-based EXAN Group, has structured the acquisition of an office campus occupied by an investment grade tenant in Warren, New Jersey. EXAN advised on the acquisition of the asset by a Luxembourg-based institutional commercial real estate partnership structured by Mirabaud Asset Management on behalf of its international clientele. The two-building office campus was acquired for $150.25 million from Philadelphia based Rubenstein Partners and New Jersey based Vision Real Estate Partners.

Warren Campus, a 29,000 square meters Class A office campus in Warren, NJ, renovated in 2019, is fully leased until 2036 to a leading international reinsurance group. The office campus serves as the US headquarters for the tenant providing a strong location and a range of amenities for employees. The asset is located in a suburb of New York City, with access to Manhattan in approximately 30 minutes and Newark Airport in 25 minutes.


Mirabaud Asset Management is working on expanding its established real estate portfolio by acquiring single-tenant office and logistics assets in key markets across the US and has advised on the acquisition of four properties in the United States since 2019. The real estate investment team remains focused on mission-critical, high-quality buildings, in regions with positive demographic and economic trends, leased to investment-grade tenants with long-term leases in place.


Vaqar Zuberi, Senior Vice President at Mirabaud Asset Management commented, “Warren Corporate Center’s prime location near New York City, state of the art amenities in a fully renovated office campus, and long-term tenancy by an investment grade tenant, make this acquisition a key part of Mirabaud’s real estate portfolio. We are once again pleased to have completed this acquisition on behalf of our clients and continue to look to grow our institutional real-estate portfolio with similar high-quality office and industrial properties.”


Mirabaud was advised on the acquisition by EXAN, King & Spalding, EY, and Elvinger Hoss Prussen. Mortgage financing was provided by New York Life Insurance Company.


Mirabaud’s real estate team is supported by an eco-system of industry experts in structuring, tax compliance, legal, due-diligence, and property management.
