The operator of an autism therapy facility has leased 4,000 square feet in Union Township, under a deal arranged by NAI James E. Hanson.
Based in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Kaleidoscope Family Solutions is a privately owned, 18-year-old provider of services to individuals with disabilities. Its space at 2780 Morris Ave. will be among roughly a dozen locations on the East Coast offering in-home and in-community services for children, adults and families.
NAI Hanson’s Andrew Kirshenbaum represented the landlord, The Robbins Agency, in the Union Township deal. He noted that the location is at the crossroads of Union, Essex and Morris counties, providing ample parking and proximity to Children’s Specialized Hospital’s new outpatient center, the Kenneth Esdale Pavilion.
“Finding suitable locations to practice specific therapy techniques can be difficult for tenants in northern New Jersey’s health care market,” Kirshenbaum said. “However, deals such as this help to illustrate our market knowledge and continued success in helping tenants, such as Kaleidoscope Family Solutions, find spaces that fit their unique needs and bring their valuable work to communities in need.”
In a news release, NAI Hanson noted that KFS provides applied behavioral analysis therapy to children with autism ages 2 through 8. It will use 2780 Morris Ave. for one-on-one therapy to patients in the Union area and to expand its presence to six locations in New Jersey.
