Woodbridge, N.J.

The Hampshire Companies, a full-service, private real estate investment firm with equity in assets valued at over $2.5 billion, has announced that it has leased a total of 19,470 square feet at its state-of-the-art, LEED Gold certified office building, CENTRA, located at 186 Wood Avenue South in Woodbridge, N.J.

NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), which creates innovative storage and data management solutions that deliver outstanding cost efficiency and accelerate business breakthroughs, has leased 12,400 square feet of Class A office space. 1-800-DOCTORS, Inc., a leading healthcare concierge service providing the most trusted and reliable resources to consumers for making personal healthcare decisions, has leased 7,070 square feet of premier office space.

“CENTRA is the perfect fit for NetApp and 1-800-DOCTORS, since both companies are leaders in their fields,” said Todd Anderson, a Principal of The Hampshire Companies. “We have seen a wide variety of interest from companies looking to secure premier, quality headquarter space in a highly accessible location, and we welcome 1-800-Doctors and NetApp to CENTRA.”

The Hampshire Companies acquired the former Siemens building in May 2009 and broke ground in February 2010, completely transforming and redeveloping the site by taking the existing building down to the steel, rebuilding it and expanding it by approximately 10,000 square feet. The new building of 110,000 square feet is a Class A state-of-the-art office building with floor to ceiling glass, sunken gardens, and a full amenity package including a fitness center, conference center and cafe.

Situated on more than 19 acres, CENTRA is ideally located within the heart of Metropark, offering close proximity to New Jersey Transit, The Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, I-287 and Routes 1 and 27 and Newark International Airport. The state-of-the-art, LEED Gold certified office building is ideal for global and local headquarter operations for a variety of industries.

David Simson and Jamie Drummond of Newmark Knight Frank are the exclusive leasing agents for the property. Renowned architect Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates PC (KPF) re-designed the building.
