As National Autism Awareness Month comes to a close, a newly negotiated lease in Union will bring a new therapy facility serving the neurodiverse community to the town.
NAI James E. Hanson said April 28 that it arranged a deal for 4,000 square feet of medical space at 2780 Morris Ave. NAI’s Andrew Kirshenbaum represented the landlord, The Robbins Agency, in the transaction with Bryn Mawr, Pa.-based Kaleidoscope Family Solutions.
According to the real estate firm, Kaleidoscope will use the new location — its sixth New Jersey office — to provide one-on-one therapy to area patients. Located at the crossroads of Union, Essex and Morris counties — with ample parking and in close proximity to Children’s Specialized Hospital’s new Kenneth Esdale Pavilion outpatient center — the new location offered an ideal spot for the tenant.
“Finding suitable locations to practice specific therapy techniques can be difficult for tenants in northern New Jersey’s health care market,” Kirshenbaum said in a statement. “However, deals such as this help to illustrate our market knowledge and continued success in helping tenants, such as Kaleidoscope Family Solutions, find spaces that fit their unique needs and bring their valuable work to communities in need.”
Since its founding in 2004, Kaleidoscope has launched 12 centers on the East Coast offering in-home and in-community services promoting the development of children, adults and families. According to NAI Hanson, the organization utilizes Applied Behavior Analysis therapy to children ages 2 through 8 with autism.
