Located at 420 and 430 Mountain Ave., the four-story buildings came online in 1986 and 1998, respectively, and underwent significant renovations over time. The property features floorplans of 43,932 and 45,750 square feet as well as a parking ratio of 4 spaces per 1,000 square feet. Amenities include a full-service cafeteria and a fitness center.
