The owner of a Bridgewater office building has hired Newmark Knight Frank as its leasing agent, as it continues a series of upgrades at the nearly 200,000-square-foot property.
NKF said the owner, American Equity Partners, is in the midst of a major overhaul in order to reposition the complex at 440 Route 22 East. Those upgrades include a new fitness center, elevator cabs and full-service cafe, along with a modernization of the building’s three-story atrium lobby, bathrooms and common areas.
The NKF leasing team consists of Senior Managing Director Jamie Drummond and associate directors Andrew Perrotti and Daniel Reider.
“Ownership has done an excellent job realizing and executing the repositioning of this property to fulfill modern tenant needs,” Drummond said. “Location is always a key differentiator for tenants, and this building’s strategic positioning by major thoroughfares paired with its thoughtful renovations, will offer occupants unrivaled convenience and workplace satisfaction.”
American Equity Partners acquired the building last year from Mack-Cali Realty Corp. The firm’s other planned upgrades to the property now include a newly lined parking lot, upgraded mechanical systems and the installation of new rooftop.
The building offers access to interstates 287 and 78, along with Routes 202/206.
