Advance Realty Group, a Bedminster, New Jersey-based commercial real estate owner and developer, continues its aggressive acquisition program with its most recent purchase of 445 South Street in Morris Township. The three-story, 320,000-square-foot building has been renamed Advance at Southgate.

Advance’s capital improvement program will consist of an entirely new roof, HVAC systems, upgraded window systems, tenant lobbies and common areas, as well as extensive site work and landscaping.
Bob Martie, senior vice president and regional managing director, Advance Realty Group, commented, “We are excited to announce the acquisition of 445 South Street and look forward to delivering a world-class office environment to the Morris County market within the next six months. Advance at Southgate is our third repositioning effort in the vibrant Morris County market in the past few years. When completed in mid-2006, we will be targeting those world-class corporate users that need large blocks of Class A space. We are confident that the building’s premiere address in the pathway of corporate growth, along with our signature corporate environment, will generate very strong demand for Advance at Southgate.”
