The largest among them is a 5,962-square-foot commitment at Tinton Falls Plaza, a shopping center at 980 Shrewsbury Ave. in Tinton Falls.
C&W’s David Townes and Alana Friedman represented Phenix Salon Suites as its New York metropolitan area leasing agent. The chain has also leased 5,500 square feet at Garden State Pavilions at 2240 West Marlton Pike in Cherry Hill and 5,400 square feet at 45 Central Drive in Clark.
Allesandro Randazzo of Metro Commercial represented the landlord in Cherry Hill, while Sam Bernhaut and Nicole Nannola of CBRE represented ownership in Clark.
“Phenix Salon Suites offers distinctive co-working space for hair stylists and other beauty professionals, and its rapid growth in our region — and nationwide — speaks to the success of this forward-thinking concept,” Townes said. “The personal services industry is thriving, and it is clear that demand among entrepreneurs within this space will continue unabated.
“In turn, Phenix has become a sought-after, high-traffic retail tenant.”
Townes also touted the completion of new leases in Norwalk, Connecticut, and Massapequa, New York, as part Phenix Salon Suites’ expansion in the tristate area Founded in 2007, the operator now has more than 250 locations nationally.
