The owner of a nearly 240,000-square-foot office building in Morris County is welcoming three new tenants after a series of renovations at the property, brokers with JLL announced.
According to the leasing team, the deals at 100 Enterprise Drive include an 18,961-square-foot commitment by Caring Partners. The nonprofit organization is moving its headquarters from Mount Arlington and will take space on the second floor of the seven-story property.
JLL Executive Vice President Chris Conklin, Managing Director Dan Spero, and Brokerage Coordinator Maria Casaliggi represented Northbridge Capital Inc., the landlord at what’s known as The Mark. They also represented ownership in transactions with Consolidated Chassis Management and Enablx, which are taking 11,104 and 4,172 square feet, respectively.
Newmark Associate Director Trevor Patterson represented Consolidated Chassis, an intermodal supply chain company, which will occupy the sixth floor of The Mark after shifting its operations management division from Budd Lake, according to a news release. Enablx, a customer service solutions company, is moving from Randolph to the property’s fifth floor.
The deals come on the heels of Northbridge Capital’s recent investment to reposition the building, which has a two-story atrium lobby and a reflective glass and granite façade. The renovations modernized the main lobby and elevators with a bright and airy design and easy-to-follow wayfinding, revived common corridors and upgraded bathrooms throughout the building, while the firm also improved the covered parking deck to increase visibility, safety and connectivity.
“The pandemic has dramatically changed work patterns and the workplace itself,” Conklin said. “The recent leasing success at The Mark is the result of a thoughtful repositioning that creates a superior employee experience in a well-located, high-quality suburban office building.”
Other enhancements include a new full-service cafeteria and coffee bar that emphasizes comfort while providing space for socializing, meetings and independent work, the news release said. Elsewhere, Northbridge has added a business lounge with a club-like area that features arcade games and a Wi-Fi-engaged common space.
The Mark also has a new multipurpose conference facility that can accommodate large events or can be divided into two smaller spaces, JLL said. The building’s high-end fitness center now offers Peloton bikes and locker rooms with showers, which are among the amenities that are free of charge for tenants.
“Recent investments have transformed the property into sleek and dynamic contemporary workspace,” Spero said. “We anticipate that The Mark will experience continued leasing momentum as tenants and employees reengage in the workplace.”
Northbridge renovated the building in part to capitalize on its location in northern Morris County, 35 miles west of New York City and near Interstate 80 and Route 46. It’s also surrounded by national and local retail offerings, including the Townsquare Mall, hotels and entertainment options.
The JLL team is currently marketing a range of office spaces at The Mark ranging from 5,000 square feet to large corporate availabilities.
“We are thrilled to welcome these three new tenants to The Mark, and we look forward to welcoming companies seeking office space that is appealing to a workforce demanding an increased commitment to quality of life at work,” said Vicky Wang, senior vice president at Northbridge Capital. “We also strive to provide turn-key solutions that make the tenant relocation process as smooth as possible.”
