06/26/2001 Category: Dispositions

Cranford, New Jersey—June 26, 2001—Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI) today announced it has sold its Tenby Chase multi-family residential complex in Delran, New Jersey, for $20 million. The 327-unit complex was sold to Tenby Chase Investors LLC, an affiliate of Pantzer Properties, Inc.

Tenby Chase, which was one of two multi-family residential properties owned by Mack-Cali, was developed by the Company in the 1970s.

Mitchell E. Hersh, chief executive officer of Mack-Cali, commented, "While this asset has provided solid operating returns and growth in value over several decades, we determined it did not fit with our portfolio strategy going forward and sold it to capitalize on the current favorable climate for residential properties. The proceeds will be redeployed into office properties in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, where we will continue to build on our dominant presence in the office sector."

Joseph Verdejo of Insignia/ESG represented Mack-Cali in the transaction.

Pantzer Properties, Inc., headquartered in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, owns and manages over 7,000 apartments in the Mid-Atlantic region.
