News Release: Exclusive – Atlantic Health System Campus

HFF announces the sale of the 538,107 square foot Atlantic Health System Campus in Morristown, New Jersey

435 South St., Morristown , N.J.

Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the sale of the Atlantic Health System Campus, a 538,107 square foot, three-building, Class A medical office complex in Morristown, New Jersey.

The HFF team represented the seller, National Business Parks, Inc., and procured the buyer, Harrison Street Real Estate Capital, LLC, in what is the largest medical office sale in the state of New Jersey.

The Atlantic Health System Campus is located at 435, 465 and 475 South Street in the highly coveted city of Morristown, NJ, just one mile south of Atlantic Health Systems’ flagship 742-bed hospital.  The campus, which is arguably one of the most mission-critical to the health system, is 93 percent leased to Atlantic Health System (Moody’s Aa3).

Ben Appel

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller was led by senior director Ben Appel, senior managing director Jose Cruz, managing director Evan Kovac, associate Matthew DiCesare and analyst J.B. Bruno.

“Atlantic Health provides care to more than 1,100 patients daily on this campus,” Appel said.  “The additional land on the campus, although not yet spoken for, is earmarked for an 80,000-square-foot expansion.  “The hospital has expanded multiple times on this campus in the recent years,” Appel added.

Cruz added “Demand from the investment community for well located, good credit medical office buildings is very strong in Northern and Central New Jersey.” “These assets are highly sought after especially given lack of opportunities to acquire these types of deals in the market.” According to Cruz.

HFF and Holliday GP Corp. (“HFF”) are licensed New Jersey real estate brokers.
