The newest tenant signed on for Alfred Sanzari Enterprise’s Glenpointe has been in business for more than 150 years, helping professionals and amateurs alike capture moments and memories through its cameras and sports optics.

Leica Camera Inc. will take up residence at the live-work-play campus’s largest office building – Glenpointe Centre West – moving its North American headquarters from Allendale to the new 12,274-square-foot space, which will include executive offices in addition to a camera display showroom and equipment repair facility, Alfred Sanzari announced June 7.

Newmark‘s Jeff Schotz, Peter Rossi, Dan Reider, Peter Kasparian and David Simson represented Alfred Sanzari Enterprises in the long-term lease transaction; Cushman & Wakefield‘s Mark Zaziski and Marc Trevisan represented Leica Camera.

“For over 150 years, our success has been powered by a ceaseless commitment to quality in everything we do,” said Mike Giannattasio, president of Leica Camera U.S. “As we toured Glenpointe, it was immediately clear that every aspect of the tenant experience has been meticulously designed to engage our employees and to inspire them to continue to deliver the high-quality products and services that Leica has become synonymous with over our history.

“We are excited to bring our team to Glenpointe and continue to build upon our success over the years to come,” he added.

The 670,000-square-foot Bergen County campus offers tenants access to the 26,000-square-foot Glenpointe fitness center, 700 hotel rooms across three operators, casual and fine dining options, abundant covered parking and more.

“We continue to see tenants gravitate toward amenity-rich, well-located, and modern office buildings like Glenpointe as they welcome their workforces back to the office and jumpstart their dormant corporate cultures,” said Reider, managing director at Newmark. “In this search for a truly culture-defining workplace, Alfred Sanzari Enterprises’ visionary construction and consistent capital improvements have ensured that there is no other property in the market better suited to do so than Glenpointe.”

Beyond amenities, tenant engagement service provider Better Spaces also partners with Glenpointe to further enhance the onsite experience through The Pointe — a community lounge — and via its app, which offers more than 40 free programs and classes each week to tenants. Further bolstering its offerings, Alfred Sanzari debuted its FLEX coworking space just last week.

In recent months the efforts have paid off, with a number of renewals announced for the property, along with new additions, including Sunovion Pharmaceuticals and Asiana Airlines of South Korea.

“Since our construction of Glenpointe, we have consistently sought to ensure it reflects the changing needs and demands of the workforce,” said Alfred Sanzari Enterprises Manager, Leasing and Marketing Carolina Gutierrez. “Today, as we look at the future of work and the dramatic changes that have taken place, it is clear that our proactive efforts have made Glenpointe the premier corporate destination for companies like Leica Camera.”
