The pharmaceutical company relocated from Woodcliff Lake, taking the entirety of 200 Metro Blvd. at ON3 and moving the entirety of its staff of approximately 1,200 corporate and research & development workers to the new headquarters in the first quarter of 2022.
“New Jersey has a long history of serving as an incubator for some of the most innovative companies in the pharmaceutical and life science spaces, and Eisai’s new headquarters at ON3 will set the standard for the future of the industry’s workplaces,” Andrew Natale, chief operating officer at SJP Project Solutions, stated. “We are proud to have helped deliver a best-in-class headquarters that will support Eisai’s peerless standard of research and development, as well as its relentless focus on promoting teamwork, safety and innovation in the office.”
Eisai signed a lease for 300,000 square feet at the campus in August 2020 and tapped SJP Project Solutions, the third-party construction and project management arm of owner and developer SJP Properties, to spearhead its delivery in conjunction with its in-house team.
As part of this process, Project Solutions collaborated with ON3 owner Prism Capital Partners on the base-building improvements and worked closely with leading global architecture firms HLW and AMA on the design and buildout of the space.
The center will expand the diverse and powerful life sciences community in New Jersey, bringing a dedicated commitment to addressing medical challenges in cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological diseases. It also aims to advance the company’s human health care mission, which has a strong structure of collaborative relationships that further its work to address the needs of people throughout their lives.
SJP’s Project Solutions is well known for its redevelopment projects, including the redevelopment of CSG Law’s headquarters in Roseland; the complete renovation of McCarter & English’s office at Gateway Center in Newark; the repositioning of Veris Residential’s Harborside mixed-use development along the waterfront in Jersey City; the build-out of EY’s offices in Hoboken; the development of Prudential Financial’s headquarters in Newark; and the development of Life Time Work’s office in Bridgewater.
