Birch Group Snags Princeton Offices from BentallGreenOak

The Birch Group finalized the $47.3-million acquisition of 600 and 700 Alexander Park, a two-building, 213,000-square-foot office portfolio in Princeton, NJ. JLL’s Kevin O’Hearn and Jose Cruz represented the seller, BentallGreenOak, as well as the Birch Group.

“As we consider new markets to expand The Birch Group’s portfolio of high performing Class A assets, Princeton was a key regional target that continues to experience heightened demand due to its location, access to top local talent, and storied history as one of the most prestigious and sought-after areas in the state, largely driven by the appeal of and proximity to Princeton University,” said Birch Group CEO Mark Meisner.

Greg Nalbandian from JLL secured acquisition financing. JLL is also being retained by The Birch Group to lease the properties. 600 Alexander Dr. is fully leased to Mathematica, while 700 Alexander Dr. is 70% leased.
