Konica Minolta Consolidates Operations in Twin Sale-Leasebacks
Cushman & Wakefield has arranged dual sale-leaseback transactions on behalf of Konica Minolta Business Solutions USA, enabling the consolidation of its U.S. operations into a single Northern New Jersey campus. First announced by Konica Minolta in December, the consolidation entails shifting back-office functions from Windsor, CT to the firm’s longtime home turf of Williams Drive in Ramsey, NJ.
A Cushman & Wakefield team, including Richard Baumstein and Marc Graham, arranged Konica Minolta’s purchase of 133 Williams Dr. from Prestige Motors, with Savills Studley’s Dan Foley representing the seller. Cushman & Wakefield then brokered a 277,900-square-foot package involving the 133 Williams contract assumption and Konica Minolta’s sale of its adjacent headquarters at 100 Williams Dr. to LCN Capital Partners.
“This series of calculated moves paves the way for Konica Minolta to create an exciting, modern work environment, while gaining efficiencies and accommodating future growth—all while remaining in place,” said Baumstein.
