Newmark Knight Frank announced it has been retained to lease and market One Tower Center in East Brunswick following American Equity Partners’ recent acquisition of the 417,430-square-foot property.
Representing AEP is Newmark Knight Frank’s leasing team of Senior Managing Director Jamie Drummond, Executive Managing Director Steve Tolkach, Managing Director Adam Silver, and Associate Directors Andrew Perrotti and Dan Reider.
Proposed renovations are set to feature a new amenities center on the 15th floor, including a fitness center, a social-centric tenant lounge and a grab-and-go café with views of the New York skyline. The current conference facility on the 15th floor will also be renovated to accommodate classroom and town hall configurations, designed to foster community and provide collaborative space.
Additionally, a section of the floor will be converted to accommodate the opening of Kahoots, a co-working space that will provide flexibility for tenants looking to expand or contract their space.
“We’re excited to work with AEP on transforming One Tower Center into a unique building offered to the East Brunswick office market,” said Drummond. “After partnering with AEP on two successful assignments, we now share a strong bond and vision for the property that will enable us to find the right tenants who are looking to attract and retain talent in East Brunswick, NJ.”
Separately on Thursday, Newmark Knight Frank announced it arranged a new long-term lease for nutritional and functional foods manufacturer Vitaquest International LLC, in Parsippany.
The property sits at 100 Jefferson Road and has more than 200,000-square-foot of industrial space for a new manufacturing and distribution facility, as the company continues to expand its nutraceutical and functional food product development and manufacturing operations in the Garden State.
Vitaquest already has operations in West Caldwell and Fairfield.
NKF Managing Director James Ritman of the Stamford office and Associate Director Trevor Patterson of the Rutherford office represented Vitaquest in this transaction.
