Bergman Real Estate Group has debuted a new 3,500-square-foot fitness center at a two-building, 230,000-square-foot office complex in Florham Park.
The real estate investment and management firm on Monday touted the addition of the new amenity at Florham Park Corporate Center, located at 25 A Vreeland Road. The facility includes a yoga studio, lounge and game room, along with cardio and weight training equipment, and offers men’s and women’s locker rooms and showering facilities.
More than 1,200 tenants signed up to use the fitness center in the first week, in what Bergman said is a testament to the demand for health and wellness amenities.
“Tenants understand the importance of a healthy work-life balance, and as a result, tenants want to offer their employees easy ways to maintain such a balance,” said Michael Bergman, CEO and president of the Woodbridge-based firm. “By including a fitness center in the same complex as their workplace, employees can take care of their health without cutting into their work day.”
The gym is the latest piece of a sweeping capital improvement plan within Bergman’s portfolio. The firm has focused on a strategy of transforming suburban office environments into more comfortable places to work.
In addition to the new gym, tenants have access to a shared conference and training center, a game room with ping pong and televisions and a full-service cafe with seating. Other amenities at Florham Park Corporate Center include an outdoor courtyard, dry cleaning service, an on-site car wash and an app-based bike-sharing program.
More improvements to the common areas and lobby are planned for late 2018.
“The working environment is a significant contributor to employee happiness, and tenants know that the right office can quite literally make or break employee retention,” Bergman said. “Cool and one-of-a-kind amenities shouldn’t be something for the New York City offices — hundreds of suburban New Jersey businesses want their employees to have access to such.”
