Talent Accessibility, Amenities Upgrades at Class A Office Asset are Driving Leasing Activity

Princeton, NJ, June 3, 2020 – Cushman & Wakefield announced that United Silicon Carbide (UnitedSiC), a leading manufacturer of silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductors, has taken 11,200 square feet of first-floor office space at 650 College Road East in Princeton.

The leasing team of Todd Elfand, Kevin Carton, Paul Giannone and Joe Vacca, based in the commercial real estate firm’s Iselin office, represented the landlord, Nuveen Real Estate, in brokering the lease. John Buckley and Jon Compitello of Jones Lang LaSalle represented the tenant.

“UnitedSiC was looking for space with a Class A environment and easy access to major highways,” said Elfand. “The property’s picturesque setting and upgraded amenities, coupled with Nuveen’s ability to complete the transaction during the COVID-19 pandemic, made 650 College Road East a great option.”

Nuveen has partnered with a well-known local developer to reposition the asset by updating the common areas and amenities at the 168,000-square-foot property. The site features a dramatic 60-foot glass atrium and outdoor courtyard with a seating area and private patio, as well as a new café and conference facility in its sister building at 600 College Road East.

Cushman & Wakefield continues to market the remaining 58,121 square feet at 650 College Road East and can assemble approximately 70,000 square feet of contiguous space at 600 College Road. The campus is located within Princeton University’s 2,000-acre master-planned business/research campus with the building offering access to the market’s robust labor pool, making it ideal for companies that are focused on recruiting and retaining top talent. The site is conveniently situated one mile from Route 1, easily accessible to downtown Princeton and minutes from retail and restaurants at Forrestal Village. Bus and rail transportation are available in close proximity, including a commuter train connection to the Northeast Corridor Line’s Princeton Junction Station.
