Exchange Place Alliance, an organization dedicated improving Jersey City’s waterfront plaza and environs, moved to a new location within the city.
The group said March 13 that it’s taken 900 square feet of office space at 239 Washington St., straddling the Exchange Place and Paulus Hook sections. The lease will run for at least three years, the group said.
“Exchange Place is now a dynamic hub of events and community programming,” Elizabeth Cain, the EPA’s executive director, said in a statement. “As the organization – and neighborhood – grows we needed to expand our office capacity, especially returning to the office post-pandemic.”
The building on Washington Street has been owned and managed by Livingston-based Punia Co. for three generations, according to the EPA. It is the former headquarters of Provident Bank.
In January, the EPA added Joe Panepinto, Abe Naparstek and David Elkouby to its board, replacing three departing directors.
Bobby Antonicello Jr. of Grid Real Estate represented landlord Ryan Tiger of Punia; Corcoran Sawyer Smith represented the EPA.
“We are happy to have assisted the Exchange Place Alliance in relocating its offices to the historic Provident Bank Building,” said Antonicello said. “It’s a perfect fit.”=
