A dermatology practice is moving inside Bergen County after leasing more than 7,000 square feet of medical office space in Ramsey, according to brokers with NAI James E. Hanson.
In a news release, the real estate services firm said Skin & Laser Center of NJ will occupy 7,112 square feet at 500 North Franklin Turnpike. The practice led by Dr. Jocelyn Leib is moving in order to accommodate its sustained growth, the brokers said, noting that the tenant was seeking a convenient location for its existing client base in Mahwah.
NAI Hanson’s Darren Lizzack and Randy Horning represented the provider. JLL’s Derek DeMartino represented 500 N Franklin LLC, the landlord at the 141,000-square-foot building.
“Many dermatologists, particularly those that specialize in elective cosmetic procedures, are reporting increased demand for services not only because many needed to shutter their doors for several months due to the pandemic, but also as a result of the sharp increase in videoconferencing and the effects it has on self-image,” Lizzack said. “As a result, we expect to see other dermatological providers in the area thrive in the coming years, requiring larger spaces to meet this demand. We were happy to leverage our local market expertise and industry knowledge to help our client find a suitable space for their growing practice.”
Located near Route 17, 500 North Franklin Turnpike features a conferencing facility, a fitness center, a café and other amenities.
