Cushman & Wakefield Reps Access Solutions Firm in Relocation to Albany Street Plaza

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., Aug. 17, 2017 – SKIDATA this week opened its new, 11,500-square-foot United States Headquarters office at Albany Street Plaza in New Brunswick. Commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield headed the site search and the project management for the global access solutions and visitor management organization.

SKIDATA relocated to the Class A property at 120 Albany Street from nearby Hillsborough, N.J. Cushman & Wakefield’s Warren Searles represented SKIDATA in its search and lease negotiation, and Mary DaCosta served as project manager for the expansion move. Sam Boraie served as landlord rep for Albany Street Plaza.

The new headquarters is the culmination of a nationwide real estate shift for SKIDATA, according to Searles, who also represented the firm in five additional, recent office redevelopment plays in major markets. “Our client took a hard look at workplace strategy and committed to providing the type of  live/work/play environments that appeal not only to current employees but those who will join the company as it continues to expand,” Searles noted. “For its U.S. headquarters, particularly, SKIDATA desired a CBD setting. After conducting an employee mapping exercise, we zeroed in on New Brunswick and MetroPark as two downtown markets with minimal commuting impact for the regional team.

“Ultimately, New Brunswick’s rich cultural offerings and night life drew us to 120 Albany Ave,” he added. “Property ownership was accommodating and responsive, and the resulting custom-designed office was executed through the collaboration of building asset management, SKIDATA’s architect and Cushman & Wakefield’s project management team. It successfully evokes SKIDATA’s evolving corporate culture and will meet its needs for years to come.”

Austria-based SKIDATA is a worldwide leader in access solutions and visitor management, according to the company’s website. More than 10,000 installations in over 100 countries enable the fast and secure access of people and vehicles to ski resorts, stadiums, airports, shopping malls, cities, spa and wellness facilities, trade fairs, and amusement parks.
