Vision RE, Barclays Cut Ribbon on Whippany Campus Retrofit

Vision Real Estate Partners has completed phase one of a multimillion-dollar retrofit and expansion of Barclays Village, formerly The Crossings at Jefferson Park, in Whippany, NJ for owner/occupier Barclays Capital. Officers from both companies were on hand for a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony.

An anchor tenant at the time, Barclays purchased the 525,000-square-foot campus from a joint venture of Vision and Rubenstein Partners in June 2017. The new ownership retained Vision to head the capital improvement program.

The improvements centered on renovating the campus’ 175,000-square-foot Building 400, and a standalone amenities center. Barclays will now employ more than 1,500 employees at the campus, located at 115 S. Jefferson Road in Whippany.

“Barclays Village continues to serve as an ideal example of the reinvention of New Jersey’s suburban office market, and our work at Vision in creating distinctive work/play environments,” said Vision’s Ross Chomik.
