02/09/2004 Category: Leasing and Development

Cranford, New Jersey—February 9, 2004—Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI) today announced it has leased the remaining space at Three Odell Plaza in Yonkers, New York, to Montefiore Medical Center. With the new lease, which is for 26,475 square feet for 15 years, Montefiore now leases the entire 71,065 square-foot office/flex building.

The building is located at Mack-Cali's South Westchester Executive Park, where Mack-Cali owns and manages 11 buildings totaling over 750,000 square feet. The Park is 98.3% leased.

A major tenant in South Westchester Executive Park, Montefiore had grown to occupy over 120,000 square feet at the Park prior to this new lease. With the Medical Center's potential growth in mind, in August 2003, Mack-Cali purchased Three Odell Plaza and simultaneously leased 44,590 square feet to Montefiore.

Mitchell E. Hersh, chief executive officer of Mack-Cali, commented, "We're pleased to be able to accommodate Montefiore's space needs as its business expands, and to build on our relationship with this valuable, long-term tenant." He added, "Our acquisition and subsequent lease-up of this property is an excellent example of our ability satisfy the evolving requirements of our existing tenants and add value for our shareholders."
