The international design firm, which is relocating to Ironside Newark from 90 Center Drive in Woodbridge, leased 7,000 square feet of space at the Class A, 450,000-square-foot mixed-use office and retail building, and will occupy a portion of the third floor at 110 Edison Place, which is located at the intersection of Edison Place and McCarter Highway/Route 21 in Newark.
The tenant was represented by Timothy Greiner, executive managing director and head of agency leasing for JLL, and Peter Ladas, JLL’s senior vice president. Building owner Edison Properties was represented by Greiner, and by Harrison Russell, associate director, with Newmark Knight Frank.
“Ware Malcomb sought to relocate its New Jersey office to a growth market,” said Ladas. “Newark offered the international design firm a terrific opportunity to recruit new talent and find new business opportunities in a thriving city.”
“We’re excited to welcome Ware Malcomb to Ironside Newark and believe its addition to the building is a testament to the evolution of today’s office market,” said Lenny Lazzarino, Edison Properties’ senior vice president, leasing. “In today’s market, all prospective tenants are seeking a unique, dynamic environment for their workers. This agreement not only adds to Ironside’s already impressive list of tenants, but serves as further proof that loft-style modern product is appealing to top-notch creative firms and a wide range of industries.”
Ironside Newark was transformed by Edison Properties from a historic warehouse into a state-of-the art office and retail destination. It offers more than 375,000 square feet of office space 74,967 square feet of retail space, along with a public two-story atrium and seating area, and a rooftop patio for tenants that overlooks Northern New Jersey and Manhattan.
The property was constructed in 1907 to accommodate railroad freight storage, and was known as the Newark Warehouse Company Building.
