AFC Urgent Care is expanding in New Jersey after signing three leases totaling more than 9,000 square feet, in a series of newly announced transactions by The Goldstein Group.
In the largest among them, the provider committed to 3,500 square feet at 77 Central Ave. in Clark, where it will join a shopping center that includes Target and Marshall’s. The Goldstein Group’s Neil Goldstein represented the tenant, while CBRE’s Sam Bernhaut represented the owner, Tamarc End Cap LLC.
AFC also took 3,193 square feet at 269 Route 46 in Little Ferry, where The Goldstein Group’s Lew Finkelstein, CJ Huter and Roy Paret represented ownership and Alicea Santella of Commercial Retail Associates represented the tenant. In Union City, the chain recently leased 2,600 square feet at 4200 Bergenline Ave., with Chris Conway of The Goldstein Group representing the tenant and Santella representing the landlord, Bergenline Mehra LLC.
“Urgent Care operations have been a fast-growing business and have been steadily acquiring retail locations for the last few years as they continue to expand their presence in local communities,” said Chuck Lanyard, president of The Goldstein Group.
The moves by AFC were among 10 transactions involving urgent care providers announced this week by the Paramus-based brokerage firm. Goldstein, Huter, Conway, Paret, Lew Finkelstein, Mark Handwerker and Scott Milich were among those involved in the deals, which comprised several operators in multiple towns.
In Northvale, the firm represented Maxim Enterprises LLC in a 3,960-square-foot lease with CityMD, which took space at Northvale Square at 269 Livingston St., while Ben Birnbaum from Newmark represented the tenant. Meantime, The Goldstein Group represented both parties in Medrite Urgent Care’s lease of a 3,600-square-foot former Pizza Hut space at 950 Route 17 in Ramsey, which is owned by Viltar Ramsey LLC.
Additionally, the firm announced three leases by Metrodoc, including a 3,400-square-foot deal at 365 Convery Blvd. in Perth Amboy with Convery Plaza Holdings LLC. The operator also took 1,950 square feet at 115 Belmont Ave. in Belleville, in a deal with MIRL BOIV Belleville LLC, and 3,300 square feet at 378 Bergen Blvd. in Fairview, which is owned by Dong In Plaza LLC.
The Goldstein Group represented both parties in each of the three Metrodoc deals. The firm, meantime, represented ownership in a 2,400-square-foot lease between Live Urgent Care and Spotswood-Lowman, the landlord at 65-99 Old Stage Road in Spotswood.
In Upper Saddle River, the team represented Upper SR Land LLC in its sale of a 2,532-square-foot building at 380 Route 17 to Chai Urgent Care. Pinches Lichtman of PL Realty represented the buyer.
