CBRE completes $20 million medical center sale in Paramus

CBRE said it recently closed on the $20 million sale of the Bergen Medical Center located at 1 W. Ridgewood Ave. in Paramus. The buyer, a private investor, acquired the 75,000-square-foot medical office property from the Eye Institute of New Jersey.

The CBRE team of Nat Gambuzza, Jeffrey Babikian, Bob L’Abbate, Nor Ramos and Allyson L’Abbate represented Eye Institute of New Jersey in the sale and procured the buyer.

Sitting on approximately five acres just off Route 17, the Bergen Medical Center is near Valley Medical Center, Bergen Regional Medical Center and Hackensack University Medical Center.

“The purchaser will benefit from bringing managerial efficiencies to the building that will better serve the tenants, as well as improve the overall performance of the asset,” Gambuzza said. “The property provides the ideal value-add opportunity for the new ownership to lease vacant space and increase NOI through its hands-on management approach.”
