EDISON, N.J., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mack-Cali Realty Corporation
(NYSE: CLI) today announced it acquired Alterra at Overlook Ridge IA in Metro
Boston for approximately $61.3 million. The Company has also agreed to acquire
Alterra at Overlook Ridge IB for approximately $88.7 million and expects an
early April closing when the loan that currently encumbers the property opens
for prepayment.

The luxury multi-family properties contain 722 rental units in the master
planned community of Overlook Ridge in Revere and Malden, Massachusetts and is
currently 97.2 percent leased. The properties are being acquired from a
Prudential Insurance Company of America joint venture.

Mack-Cali's recently acquired Roseland subsidiary developed Alterra IA in 2004
and Alterra IB in 2008 for the venture, and has managed the properties since

The class A multi-family properties offer residents resort-style amenities,
including heated outdoor pools, fitness centers, lounges with billiards,
business centers, cinema screening rooms, and direct access parking garages.
The Overlook Ridge community is located just five miles north of downtown
Boston and its many restaurants, shopping, and attractions. It also features
superior access to a vast highway network, direct access to MBTA bus service,
as well as private shuttle service.

Mitchell E. Hersh, president and chief executive officer of Mack-Cali,
commented, "The acquisition of Alterra perfectly complements our recent
acquisition of the real estate development and management businesses of
Roseland and its imminent development interests at Overlook Ridge. We expect
to place mortgage financing on the property that will provide a cash on cash
yield in excess of 9 percent."

Marshall B. Tycher, co-president of Roseland, commented, "We were attracted to
this acquisition because these premier assets represent the finest in luxury,
location, and amenities, and are consistent with the highest quality
properties in the marketplace, as well as the opportunity for a value-add
component. With a planned interior cosmetic modernization we are confident we
can command today's higher market rents."
