Edison, New Jersey—July 1, 2013—Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI) today announced that it has sold its commercial office property at 40 Richards Avenue in Norwalk, Connecticut, for $16.5 million. The approximately 64 percent occupied, seven-story, 145,487-square-foot property was sold to The Davis Companies.
Matthew F. Keefe of HK Group represented Mack-Cali in the transaction.
Mitchell E. Hersh, president and chief executive officer of Mack-Cali, commented, “40 Richards Avenue was Mack-Cali’s sole asset in Norwalk and was no longer consistent with our overall strategy. This was the right time to sell given market conditions and we look forward to redeploying the proceeds into more strategic investment opportunities.”
