Mack-Cali Realty, a Jersey City-based real estate investment trust, has been busy this month battling activist investor Bow Street Capital and planning the sale of a 188,408-square-foot office building in Neptune. Real Estate NJ reported Monday that Mack-Cali had also inked two leases with Amazon-owned Whole Foods for its Harborside development on the Jersey City waterfront. The Amazon-owned grocery chain will occupy 47,398 square feet at Harborside 3, a 725,600-square-foot mixed-used property adjacent to the NY Waterway Harborside ferry terminal, Exchange Place PATH Station and the Harborside-Bergen Light Rail station. Whole Foods also plans to open another 47,542-square-foot supermarket location at Mack-Cali’s Harborside 4A. Whole Foods will relocate its regional officesfrom Englewood Cliffs. The Whole Foods deal with Mack-Cali was noted in the REIT’s first quarter operating report, according to JerseyDigs. Neither Mack-Cali nor Whole Foods have confirmed a timeline for the headquarters relocation and subsequent store opening. Mack-Cali’s Harborside 1, 2 and 3 were purchased by the company in 1996 after having previously been owned by the Pennsylvania Railroad since their construction in 1929. The land was converted to office space in 1982 and in recent years Mack-Cali has embarked on a $75 million upgrade of the area, adding retail and restaurant space. [RE-NJ]
