Report: Amazon not leasing at Mack-Cali’s Harborside in Jersey City, after all

Amazon is no longer in talks to lease office space in Jersey City, according to a report first published by Bloomberg.

The e-commerce giant had reportedly been in negotiations for several months to ink a lease at Mack-Cali Realty Corp.‘s fully renovated and repositioned Harborside 1, a 422,590-square-foot, nine-story first-class office building with an attractive new façade, reimagined lobby and significant infrastructure upgrades — including a private terrace on the fourth floor, which offers expansive views of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline.

That transaction was to be one of the state’s largest office leases in recent years and a major victory for the Hudson Waterfront submarket.

However, Bloomberg said the deal fell apart after Amazon backed out at the last minute, according to people familiar with the matter.

Mack-Cali did not respond to a request for comment.
