Home décor company Town & Country Living has taken 30,000 square feet at a newly renovated office building in Bergen County, according to a leasing team with JLL.
Brokers say the textiles company is moving from North Arlington to Park View 208, a 99,508-square-foot property at 208 Harristown Road in Glen Rock. It’s leasing the space under a deal with 208 Glen Rock Associates LLC, which recently completed a major update of the 43-year-old structure that included a new fitness center and upgraded conference spaces, common areas and restrooms, as well as a new HVAC system.
Ownership is also planning additional amenities, such as a grab-and-go café, JLL said.
“We are thrilled to welcome Town & Country Living to this premier building,” said Derek DeMartino, a senior vice president with JLL. “Ownership’s commitment to upgrading Park View 208 to cater to today’s tenants and hands-on management style will undoubtedly contribute to continued leasing momentum at a time when superior quality office space remains a priority.”
DeMartino represented the landlord in the long-term lease with Town & Country Living, according to a news release. JLL executive managing directors Frank D. Recine and Frank Coco and associate Alex Friedenberg represented the tenant, which is moving to the refreshed office space from an industrial facility.
JLL, which was retained as leasing agent in March 2023, noted that the team sought to reposition the property after the departure of the Bank of America, a longtime tenant that caused it to be known as the Bank of America Building. Its first step was to rebrand the asset as Park View 208, while reintroducing the brokerage community to the property and showcasing the renovations.
Those upgrades have helped capitalize on the site’s proximity to routes 4 and 17 and Interstate 287 and its access to destinations such as Newark Liberty International Airport and Westfield Garden State Plaza.
“Park View 208 stood out as the ideal office setting due to its prime location and amenitized work environment,” Recine said. “The space is perfectly suited to the tenant’s specific needs. The opportunity for building signage on the well-travelled Route 208 corridor was another positive that appealed to Town & Country Living.”
