BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - February 1, 2011) - Sonnenblick-Eichner Company announced today that it has arranged $21,300,000 of first mortgage financing for the fee simple interest in One Centennial Plaza, a 121,286 square foot, two-building office complex located in the One Centennial Plaza Business Park in Piscataway, New Jersey. The 10-year, non-recourse, fixed rate Private Placement financing was issued by a major domestic Life Insurance Company. Pricing on the transaction was at a spread of less than 200 basis points over the corresponding treasury rate.

The property is leased to American Standard Inc., a subsidiary of Ingersoll Rand (NYSE: IR), and is located adjacent to Ingersoll Rand's former U.S. corporate headquarters facility. A credit tenant lease structure provided for a loan of approximately 100% of asset value, resulting in proceeds sufficient to pay all of the borrower's costs associated with the transaction.

David Sonnenblick, a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, commented, "Though Piscataway is not recognized as a strong office market, we were able to generate interest from multiple institutional lenders due to the quality of the tenant coupled with the return of liquidity to the real estate debt markets."
