The seventh floor of the 300,000-square-foot, Class A office asset, located at 5901 W. Side Ave., will house Imperial Dade’s executive team as well as office operations, including finance, human resources and customer service. The firm’s current Jersey City facility will serve as its largest distribution center.
Curtis Foster, executive managing director, and Jerry Shifrin, director, of Cushman & Wakefield’s East Rutherford office, are handling the assignment for the firm, which is the exclusive leasing agent for the property.
“Imperial Dade is a rapidly expanding company that has reached capacity in their current space,” said Foster. “Getting a deal done quickly and easily with the landlord, Real Capital Solutions, and securing temporary space in the building while the firm builds out a permanent office, has provided them with the ability to remain operational and functional to keep pace with ever-changing demand.”
Imperial Dade, which was represented by Palestina Scrivo Properties Inc. in the transaction, plans to occupy its permanent space in early fall, with Shifrin noting that Cushman & Wakefield is providing all of the resources necessary to ensure the move goes smoothly.
Shifrin and Foster are also continuing to market the remaining space at West Side Center, which is currently over 90 percent leased. “The property presents office users of all sizes with the opportunity to occupy a headquarters-quality facility in the heart of the New Jersey Meadowlands,” said Shifrin.
Imperial Dade is at the forefront of the national response to COVID-19 virus.
“Maintaining the supply chain is critical,” said Imperial Dade Chief Information Officer Zach Plevritis. “When our factories in China shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it resulted in significant shortages. Those factories are shipping now and we’ve ordered dozens of containers of gloves and masks and hospital supplies. We’re working to fill backorders while prioritizing critical care services to make sure they have what they need.”
The company says it is also committed to the health and safety of its employees.
“Our staff is on a noble path and we are doing our part to flatten the curve as we continue to operate,” said Mary Mozejko, senior vice president of strategy. “We’re providing everyone with products to keep their workspaces and their homes clean. We disinfect truck drivers, our equipment operators spray down equipment and we have two registered nurses taking people’s temperatures each day.”
