Formerly associated with Crown Growth Partners, Geoff Block now manages various investments through his RLB Squared holding company. Among the transactions Geoff Block has arranged is the new headquarters for Jaguar Land Rover, North America, in Mahwah, New Jersey.
Moving from a smaller site in Mahwah, Jaguar Land Rover will expand into an enlarged and renovated facility on Route 17 North. The old building accommodated some 250 employees; the enhanced complex, however, will provide space for about 315 staff in some 147,000 square feet. The headquarters will support the 377 Land Rover and Jaguar dealerships in the United States.
The facility’s upgraded technology will enable employees to better communicate and work with other locations around the world. New exterior finishes and signage will improve its aesthetic value.
The project won the approval of the Mahwah Township Planning Board in July 2016, and the new facility should open sometime in 2018. The township has attracted major companies such as UPS and Seiko, due partly to good rail and air connections to New York City, only 30 minutes distant.
