Three new tenants have opened their doors at a 94,000-square-foot, grocery-anchored strip center at the border of Jersey City and Bayonne.
Levin Management Corp. announced this week that Kidz Village, Taco Bell and 1HOURREPAIR.com are open for business at Twin City Shopping Center in Jersey City. The largest among them is Kidz Village, a 15,000-square-foot indoor playground facility geared toward children age 10 and under.
“Our focus is on providing age-appropriate, imaginative play,” said Angela Medina, the owner and manager of Kidz Village. “We are also a premier kids’ birthday venue, and specialize in creating personalized, interactive parties. These are not cookie-cutter events; every party is customized by a party planner around the birthday child’s likes and favorite things. Existing customers from the Bayonne/Jersey City area asked us to bring Kidz Village to Hudson County, and we are excited to open at Twin City Shopping Center.”
Also open at Twin City, which sits at Garfield Avenue and Broadway, is a new 2,100-square-foot Taco Bell.
“Twin City Shopping Center’s demographics and location — just off the New Jersey Turnpike — are very attractive,” said Rupal Patel, who owns the franchise location along with her husband, Nirav Mehta. “Besides being a tremendous value, Taco Bell’s featured menu changes about every four weeks. This sets the brand apart from other fast-food options, as patrons always will find new menu items from which to choose.”
LMC, the center’s leasing and managing agent, said the third newly opened business is the wireless specialty retailer 1HOURREPAIR.com. The firm said the business complements another Twin City Shopping Center addition, T-Mobile, which will open later this spring.
