Duke Realty Corp. has brought a newly built, 194,000-square-foot industrial building in the Meadowlands to full occupancy after inking a lease with a wig manufacturer and distributor.
The developer and brokerage firm Chaus Realty announced that Mane Concept is taking 69,000 square feet at 5 Ethel Road, a 194,000-square-foot building off Route 17 in Wood-Ridge. The tenant joins GraceKennedy Foods LLC, which inked nearly 125,000 square feet at the complex late last year to account for about two-thirds of the available space.
Brian Scheuer of Chaus represented Mane Concept, while Chris Hile of JLL represented Duke.
“We are excited to welcome Mane Concept into our northern New Jersey portfolio,” Duke said in a prepared statement. “This transaction brings our (New Jersey) in-service portfolio to 100 percent occupancy and is representative of the continued robust demand for our last-mile facilities.”
The developer has previously said that the space occupied by GraceKennedy Foods offers 36-foot clear heights, wide column spacing, 13 dock doors and ample car and trailing parking. The space that Mane Concept will occupy offers similar clear heights and features, also including 13 loading docks, 1 drive-in door, 32 trailer parking spaces and 58 car parking spaces.
