An online grocer is taking more than 50,000 square feet of newly built industrial space in Edison, under a transaction announced Thursday by Lee & Associates New Jersey.
The tenant, Weee! Inc., took occupancy late last month after inking the five-year lease at 80 Executive Ave. The company will occupy the entire 50,392-square-foot building just east of the New Jersey Turnpike and minutes from other major highways.
Lee & Associates New Jersey Principal Brian Lynch and Associate Kyle Janoczkin joined Chris Schofield, a principal in California, in representing the tenant. Menlo Executive Associates I LLC Managing Principal Jun Choi represented ownership.
“We’re pleased to have found a great starting point for Weee! Inc. in the Garden State, as the brand expects to grow across the mid-Atlantic in a trend similar to its success throughout California,” Janoczkin said. “This transaction illustrates that amid the COVID-19 pandemic, appetite for industrial space remains strong in the New Jersey market.”
Weee! Inc., which specializes in Asian fare, will benefit from ceiling heights ranging from 16 to 32 feet, five loading docks and high-power cooler space.
