Atlantic Health System makes full investment in Rockaway, NJ; Buys Health Pavilion building for nearly $26 million

Trish O'Keefe

ROCKAWAY, NJ –– Atlantic Health System, a leading health care provider in New Jersey, recently purchased the building and property housing the Morristown Medical Center Health Pavilion in Rockaway, underscoring both its full investment in the facility, as well as its full commitment to the community.

Paul Marmora
The Pavilion, opened in 2016, offers several of Morristown Medical Center’s nationally-recognized services in a location more convenient for people from Mount Arlington, Denville, Dover, Boonton, Morris Plains, Wharton, Roxbury and Randolph.

The location is also convenient for people commuting through the town, as it offers early/late hours and an easily accessible location from major highways.

The $25.9 million sale of the 92,326-square-foot building located at 333 Mount Hope Avenue next to the Rockaway Town Square Mall was closed by JLL.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Jose Cruz and Director Ben Appel.

                   Jose Cruz

Atlantic Health System had been the sole tenant of the building, which is situated on 8.28 acres. 

When the joint owners opted to sell the building, Atlantic Health System bested offers from 19 other potential buyers, seeing great value in owning the building outright to expand its services and meet the health needs of the community.

The numerous services included in the Pavilion provide care to more than 11,000 patients per month. Atlantic Health System plans to add an ambulatory surgery center and more exam rooms for expanded services in the coming months.

“With an already strong demand from the community at the Pavilion at Rockaway, we decided to fully invest in the location, allowing us free rein to enhance the services there to better meet the needs of our patients,” said Paul Marmora, Vice President, Ambulatory Care for Atlantic Health System.

Ben Appel
“Since it opened in 2016, the Health Pavilion has seen incredible growth, which speaks to the demand for Morristown Medical Center’s nationally recognized programs and services in the Rockaway area,” said Trish O’Keefe, PhD, RN, president of Morristown Medical Center.

“We continue to work with the community to deeply understand its unique health needs, and, with full ownership of the building, we can expand and enhance our services to best meet those needs.”

Levin Johnston Directs Two Property Trades Totaling $28.6 Million in California Bay Area

Woodgate Apartments, 1950 Montecito Avenue, Mountain View, CA 

BAY AREA, CA – Levin Johnston of Marcus and Millichap, one of the top multifamily brokerage teams in the U.S. specializing in wealth management through commercial real estate investments, has successfully directed the acquisition of a newly renovated office in Redwood City, California, along with the sale of an apartment community in Mountain View, California, for a total transaction volume of $28.6 million.

Levin Johnston represented a single client as the buyer in the Redwood City office transaction and as the seller in the Mountain View sale—part of a successful 1031 exchange directed by Executive Managing Director Adam Levin and Senior Managing Director Robert Johnston.

 “With this exchange, we were able to both secure a competitive price for the multifamily asset, as well as help diversify our client’s portfolio by identifying a high-yielding office building in the desirable Redwood City market, which will create long-term wealth and stability for years to come,” explains Levin.

558 Brewster, Redwood City, CA includes two floors of office space

“These transactions demonstrate our capabilities to go beyond a transactional mindset and serve as wealth and investment advisors for our clients.”

The 1031 exchange began with the $22.5 million sale of Woodgate Apartments, a 34-unit multifamily community in Mountain View, and concluded with the $6.1 million acquisition of 558 Brewster, a newly renovated, single-tenant office building totaling 5,580 square feet in Redwood City.

 “A unique investment opportunity in a top-performing market, 558 Brewster is a perfect fit for an experienced investor looking to expand their portfolio,” says Johnston.

Adam Levin

“The demand for quality office product is at an all-time high. Future job growth in Redwood City is projected to be 37 percent over the next 10 years, surpassing the U.S. average of 33.5 percent.”

The area benefits from its proximity to Silicon Valley, attracting major tech companies including Apple, Inc., Tesla, Yahoo, and Microsoft, among many others.

“The investment appeal of 558 Brewster is driven by Redwood City’s core downtown location, strong employment fundamentals, and low vacancy levels, as well as its close proximity to major employers and transportation corridors,” Levin adds.

Originally constructed in 1981 and renovated earlier this year, 558 Brewster includes two floors of office space.

Situated in a prime corner office location of Brewster Avenue and Winslow Street, the property is in walking distance to a Caltrain station and downtown Redwood City.

The asset also features ample on-site parking, a carport, storage areas, and high-quality kitchen facilities.

           Robert Johnston
Located at 1950 Montecito Avenue in Mountain View, California, Woodgate Apartments is in close proximity to Highway 85 and Highway 101, offering direct access to the entire Bay Area. Originally constructed in 1976, the property offers studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as laundry facilities and covered parking.

Levin Johnston has completed over $300 million in sales in 2019 to date, demonstrating continued health in the commercial real estate market in this region. For more information about the firm’s $100 million in available properties, visit www.levinjohnston.com.
