(“Maersk”) in the sale of 2 Giralda Farms, in Madison, for $53.3 million. The team was also responsible for procuring the buyer, American Realty Capital Global Trust, Inc.

2 Giralda Farms is a ±146,366-square-foot trophy office building that was designed as a build-to-suit for the North American headquarters of Maersk and features headquarters quality finishes and infrastructure along with a broad base of amenities.

The property is situated on 20± acres within the iconic Giralda Farms office park. The prestigious park is set on 310 acres consisting of five trophy quality office buildings totaling 1.1 million sq. ft. This bucolic setting is highlighted by preserved woodlands and trails and features private gated access. Its exceptional location three miles from Route 24 provides prime accessibility to I-78, as well as the intersection of I-80/I-287. The strength of the property’s location is further illustrated by its proximity to three NJ Transit train stations, along with access to outstanding restaurants, lodging and arts and entertainment in Downtown Madison and Morristown.

Mr. Welsh commented: “The property provides American Realty Capital Global Trust with a world-class office building that is 100 percent net leased on a long-term basis and secured by an investment grade tenant.
