Brokers with Colliers International have leased more than 50,000 square feet at a Union office building, less than a year after taking over marketing for the repositioned complex.
The new deals at 1095 Morris Ave. include a long-term lease with SS&C Technologies Holdings, Colliers said in a news release Monday. The tenant, a provider of services and software for the financial services industry, now occupies 25,742 square feet at the 147,000-square-foot property known as Union Station Corporate Center.
Colliers is marketing the four-story concrete and glass building on behalf of LH Union LLC, which implemented a series of upgrades after acquiring the property in 2013 from Merck & Co. The landlord has renovated the four-story atrium and lobby, common areas and bathrooms, while adding a state-of-the-art fitness center, a new grab-and-go café and conference center.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the rebranding and the success it has brought our client,” Richard Mirliss, executive managing director with Colliers, said in a prepared statement. “The center’s extensive amenities are rare for a property of this size and a real draw for tenants.”
Mirliss, who heads the Colliers team with associates Alexander Vitro and Jack Callahan, added that the building’s “transit-oriented location is second to none in the area.” The property is within walking distance of an NJ Transit’s rail station and close to the Garden State Parkway and Interstate 78.
Other new tenants at Union Station Corporate Center include:
- M+W Energy, a subsidiary of M+W Group
- Mindlance, a multinational staffing and services company
- Oriel STAT A MATRIX, a provider of regulatory and performance improvement training and consulting solutions to enhance financial results and customer satisfaction
- MLB Residential Lending, a community-focused mortgage banker
Union Station Corporate Center is a located on a 6.1-acre parcel across the street from Kean University, Colliers said in a news release. It is part of the overall Liberty Hall Condominium Association, which spans 27.7 acres.
Colliers is marketing other availabilities ranging from 2,000 to 100,000 square feet.
“We are seeing significant interest in the remaining available space and expect leasing to continue at a brisk pace,” Mirliss said, adding that ownership is offering aggressive rental rates and generous concessions and broker incentives in hopes of adding more tenants in 2017.
