JERSEY CITY-Moody’s Investors Service has bumped its occupancy at Mack-Cali Realty’s Harborside Financial Center Plaza 5 here to just under 80,000 sf, signing a lease for an additional 36,193 sf at the 980,000-sf class A office tower. The signing boosts the waterfront tower’s occupancy to the 91.3% mark, according to Mitchell E. Hersh, president and CEO of the Cranford-based REIT.

“This transaction represents an important milestone in the leasing of this office tower,” Hersh says, a reference to the building’s occupancy passing the 90% mark. “It also demonstrates our ability to build long-term relationships with our tenants.”

Augustus Field of Cushman & Wakefield represented Moody’s Investors, a subsidiary of Moody’s Corp. Mark Ravesloot of CB Richard Ellis represented Mack-Cali, as did Jane Greenblatt, in-house senior director of leasing and development for the REIT. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The signing is a highlight of the nearly 200,000 sf of leasing activity Mack-Cali has experienced recently. Also at Harborside 5, Dieca Communications Inc., a provider of broadband communications services, took 6,278 sf. Edward Duenas and Pamela Walsh of Cushman & Wakefield and Scott Churchley of Liberty-Greenfield represented the tenant, while Ravesloot and Greenblatt again repped Mack-Cali.

Elsewhere in the REIT’s portfolio, Casio Inc., the US subsidiary of Casio Computer Co., renewed its lease for 96,000 sf at the Mack-Cali Airport business complex in Little Ferry, a 286,628-sf building that is 95.4% leased. Andrew Schiffer and James Yamauchi of Cushman & Wakefield of NJ, East Rutherford, represented the tenant and John Donnelly, in-house director of leasing, spoke for Mack-Cali.

And in Roseland, Bisys-RK Alternative Investment Services Inc., a hedge fund services provider, signed a new lease for 60,821 sf at 105 Eisenhower Parkway. The 220,000-sf class A building within the Eisenhower/280 Corporate Center is just under 81% leased.
