Morristown, N.J.

The Hampshire Companies, a full-service, private real estate investment firm with equity in assets valued at over $2.5 billion, experienced strong levels of leasing activity throughout the first half of 2014, executing 875,244 square feet of new and renewal lease transactions.

“We have experienced a steady stream of new and renewal leasing activity in both office and industrial markets. Additionally we have seen rates stabilize and an overall healthier leasing environment causing vacancies to decrease and resulting in positive absorption of available space,” said James E. Hanson II, President and CEO of The Hampshire Companies. “The dedication we put forth in scouting and acquiring quality space that allows for maximum flexibility in addressing tenants’ needs has continued to pay dividends for our investors. We look forward to continued leasing success in the second half of the year as the economy continues to improve.”
