Developers Sudler Companies and GTJ REIT recently completed the construction and interior design on a 150,000-square foot facility into the new warehouse, office and distribution center of international art supplier Colart’s new North American headquarters.
Colart, who’s art history goes back to the 1400s and includes Picasso, Andy Warhol and David Hockney among its many famous clients, has been at 11 Constitution Avenue in Corporate Park 287 since the early 1980s with Sudler Companies as its original landlord until GTJ REIT bought the building in 2016.
In 2018, when Colart needed a larger, more modern facility, GTJ REIT suggested the 2 Corporate Place South location within the same corporate park for its next multi-generational home. Sudler demolished the previous office building in 2018 to accommodate Colart’s need to stay in Piscataway.
Sen. Bob Smith and Mayor Brian Wahler joined Sudler Companies and GTJ REIT to officially welcome Colart into its new home with a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by live music on a painted piano that is part of a sponsorship of the Sing for Hope charity by the Colart brand Liquitex. The piano’s theme is New Jersey, and the scenes for each surface were chosen by Colart’s Piscataway staff to celebrate The Garden State’s robust farming history.
Corporate Park 287 features 2.5 million square feet of office, data center and warehouse space on 200 acres on the 287 Corridor in New Jersey, close to the NJ Turnpike and Parkway and within 50 miles of New York City.
