A series of leases, renewals and expansions have accounted for more than 33,000 square feet of tenant activity at a 215,000-square-foot office building in Fort Lee, the property’s manager said.
In a news release Thursday, Vision Real Estate Partners highlighted five deals at 9W Office Center at 2200 Fletcher Ave. The largest among them is a renewal by a longtime occupant, a global wealth management firm that was not identified by name, for 12,830 square feet.
Jeff Babikian of CBRE represented the financial services giant in the transaction. Tina Swierad, asset manager for Mountain Lakes-based Vision Real Estate Partners, handled the deal on behalf of the 96 percent occupied office building.
Among the other recent deals at the site, Overseas Food Trading expanded its lease by 825 square feet for a new total of 9,219 square feet, VREP said in a news release. Jansy, which provides product design, manufacturing and packaging solutions, has more than doubled its footprint with an expansion to 7,971 square feet.
PixarBio Corp., developer of pain treatment drug NeuroRelease, opened a new office at 9W Office Center, leasing 4,881 square feet, the news release said. Scott Perkins, Andrew Somple and Christopher Todd of NAI James E. Hanson represented the tenant, while Christian Politan from Cushman & Wakefield assisted the landlord in the transaction.
In the other recent deal, Park Avenue Capital renewed its 3,175-square-foot lease at the property. The investment firm was represented by Eric Ladden of Cornerstone Real Estate Group.
Vision Real Estate Partners provides asset management, property management and operational support for 9W Office Center, which sits on five acres just north of the George Washington Bridge entrance. The firm was appointed to its role earlier this year, as part of its expansion into Bergen County and the growth of its Vision Management Platform.
Swierad spearheaded the recent activity on behalf of the firm and the building, which is anchored by Tranzact and Telemundo.
“Tenants are drawn to 9W Office Center by the property’s accessibility to Manhattan,” she said. “The fact that they choose to stay and grow in place is a testament to the responsiveness of their landlord; benefits like ample parking, an onsite fitness center and cafeteria; and a neighborhood setting that offers walkable retail and dining.”
