Three tenants have signed on for 34,237 square feet of newly renovated Class A office space in Morris County at a seven-story Rockaway property.

JLL announced the completed the transactions, which will bring Caring Partners, Consolidated Chassis Management and Enablx to the 237,087-square-foot The Mark office building, on April 18.

JLL Executive Vice President Chris Conklin, Managing Director Dan Spero, and Brokerage Coordinator Maria Casaliggi, represented building owner Northbridge Capital Inc. in the long-term deals.

Nonprofit Caring Partners will relocate its headquarters to 18,961 square feet on the second floor of The Mark from Mount Arlington, JLL said. Intermodal supply chain company Consolidated Chassis Management leased 11,104 square feet on the sixth floor, where it plans to relocate its operations management division from Budd Lake. And customer service solutions company Enablx is relocating from Randolph to 4,172 square feet on The Mark’s fifth floor.

Newmark Associate Director Trevor Patterson represented Consolidated Chassis Management.

The leases follow the recent repositioning of the property by Northbridge Capital. According to JLL, renovations to the lobby modernized the elevators and entrance, which features a two-story atrium, reflective glass and granite façade. The new design, which JLL described as bright and airy, allows for easy-to-follow wayfinding, revived common corridors and upgraded restrooms throughout the building. Additionally, the property’s covered parking deck was improved to increase visibility, safety and connectivity.

“The pandemic has dramatically changed work patterns and the workplace itself,” Conklin said in a statement. “The recent leasing success at The Mark is the result of a thoughtful repositioning that creates a superior employee experience in a well-located, high-quality suburban office building.”

Other new features at The Mark include a full-service cafeteria and coffee bar, with space for socializing, meetings or independent work; a new business lounge complete with arcade games and a WiFi-engaged common area; a multi-purpose conference facility that can accommodate large events or be divided into two smaller spaces; and a gym with Peloton bikes, locker rooms and showers.

According to JLL, all building amenities are free for tenants.

“Recent investments have transformed the property into sleek and dynamic contemporary workspace,” added Spero. “We anticipate that The Mark will experience continued leasing momentum as tenants and employees reengage in the workplace.”
