“This investment was a very successful one for Mack-Cali,” according to Mitchell E. Hersh, the firm’s chief executive officer. “But we decided to redeploy our capital into more strategic direct real estate investments that are consistent with our overall strategy of owning and operating class A office properties in the Northeast.
