ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — LG Electronics has completed the acquisition of a 27-acre property in Englewood Cliffs. Terms were not disclosed.
The property at 111 Sylvan Ave. houses a 400,000-square-foot, three-story office building occupied by Citigroup, Inc. The financial firm is expected to lease the building from LG through spring 2011.
