Scarinci Hollenbeck is making a move from Lyndhurst to the Overlook Corporate Center in Little Falls.
That’s according to Avison Young’s Morristown office, which announced it negotiated a new lease for the law firm to occupy 18,529 square feet on the ninth floor of the office property at 150 Clove Road.
“In our 30-year relationship with Scarinci Hollenbeck, we’ve seen them grow exponentially and have established trust. We’re proud to support their continued growth in their new headquarters,” said Principal Drew Persson. “We conducted a 10-month search, landing at the Overlook Center, which was a natural fit for the firm as it not only geolocates them centrally, but offers greater access to health, wellness and conveniences through the building’s amenity offerings.”
Avison Young said it conducted a study at the start of Scarinci Hollenbeck’s office search that together with results from the law firm’s own internal survey of its employees, helped to paint a picture of the square footage necessary – and the commuting limitations of the team.
Following an open house to show off the new space – located less than 10 miles from the old one – AY said that interest in returning to the office full time rose 75% among Scarinci Hollenbeck’s attorneys.
Scarinci Hollenbeck, the tenant, was represented by Persson and Principal and Managing Director Jeff Heller, who are based in Avison Young’s Morristown office. Theta Holding Co. LP, the landlord, was represented by JLL’s Executive Managing Director Frank Recine, Senior Vice President Derek DeMartino and Associate Nicholas DeCotiis.
The Overlook Corporate Center recently underwent a multimillion-dollar repositioning. Comprised of two connected towers, the property offers public space, a full-service cafeteria, executive conference room, fitness center, yoga studio, access to terraces – and views of the Meadowlands and New York City skyline – covered parking with EV charging stations and enhanced security.
“The Overlook Corporate Center is second to none,” Ronald Reisner, chair of Scarinci Hollenbeck’s Work-Life Balance Committee, said in a statement. “We spent considerable time searching for a space that complements our firm’s work-life balance culture and meets our quality-of-life agenda standards.
“Our attorneys have the option to work from home. However, if they chose to be in the office, we wanted it to be a place that creates an environment for a productive day,” he added.
The firm will make the move from its current office to the new space as of Sept. 6, 2022; at that point, AY said, making it the largest corporate firm in Passaic County.
