The United Way of Northern New Jersey has named Allergan’s new administrative headquarters building in Madison, NJ its winner of the 2017 Impact Award at their 18th annual United Way Commercial Real Estate Network Legacy Luncheon.
Built by Structure Tone, the new space was recognized for its positive impact on the region in the last year, which includes keeping 1,000 jobs in the state and creating a space that can accommodate 300 more employees. The 432,000-square-foot renovated building consolidates several other Allergan operations into a primary US headquarters.
“United Way is proud of its longstanding partnership with this industry, which recognizes that giving back to local communities is an integral part of doing business,” United Way Senior Vice President of Resource Development Theresa Leamy said in a statement. “In addition, United Way congratulates the Allergan building team for its commitment to retaining jobs, providing a competitive workplace environment and helping to boost the regional economy.”
This is the second year in a row a Structure Tone project has won the Impact Award. Last year the award went to the new UPS facility in Parsippany, New Jersey.
In addition to Structure Tone, the Allergan project team includes landlord Lincoln Equities Group LLC; broker Newmark Grubb Knight Frank; tenant representative JLL; architects HLW International and Gensler; law firms Bond, Schoeneck & King PLLC and Riker Danzig Scherer Hyland & Perretti LLP; project manager VVA Project Managers & Consultants; engineer Robert Derector Associates; furniture manufacturer Teknion; furniture dealer GOI; security and IT TM Technology Partners Inc.; AV and acoustics Cerami & Associates; and other consultants Structure Studio, Jacobs Doland Beer and Kimley-Horn and Associates.
