Edison Properties, a privately owned real estate holding and development company, announced law firm Robinson Miller LLC as the latest office tenant at Ironside Newark, its state-of-the-art, 21st century workplace in Newark’s revitalized downtown.
Robinson Miller’s new offices will occupy 4,001 square feet of Ironside Newark’s third floor. The Newark-based firm is the second law firm tenant to sign on at the mixed-use building, joining Bloomfield-based Pearlman & Miranda.
Mars Wrigley will serve as Newark Ironside’s anchor tenant and be joined by developer Edison Properties, who will move its headquarters to the building when it opens in mid-2019.
Currently, approximately 73 percent of the building’s office space is leased.
With roots in Newark dating back almost 50 years, Robinson Miller’s expertise spans a wide range of practice areas. The firm’s team of attorneys actively handles an array of cases, including business and commercial litigation, communications and media law, management representation and federal court representation.
“Ironside Newark offered us the perfect opportunity to re-commit to the great city of Newark, which has been our home for almost five decades,” said Don Robinson, the firm’s founding partner. “Its location in the heart of downtown Newark, high-speed internet connectivity and modern office amenities will allow us to continue to thrive as we celebrate the firm’s 50th anniversary next year, and well into the future.”
Ironside Newark is located at the corner of Edison Place and McCarter Highway (Route 21), and is 20 minutes from Manhattan by train – it is proximate to a host of transportation options including PATH, New Jersey Transit, and Amtrak trains; buses; a light rail and Newark Liberty International Airport.
Designed by the New York City-based design and architecture firm Perkins Eastman, Ironside Newark will include 456,000 square feet of modern loft-style and penthouse offices with access to a rooftop terrace featuring green space and views of both Newark and Manhattan. Retail and restaurant space will front directly on Mulberry Commons Park, providing a direct link between the building and Newark Penn Station, Prudential Center arena, the historic Ironbound neighborhood and the rest of an increasingly vibrant downtown.
