NAI James E. Hanson, a leading New Jersey based full-service independent commercial real estate firm, announces it has negotiated leases with San Antonio Broker Services for 22,800 square feet and Icera for 19,200 square feet of industrial/flex space at 560 Jefferson Avenue in Secaucus, N.J. JLL’s Harold Imperatore represented Icera and John Donnelly of Colliers International represented San Antonio Broker Services. NAI James E. Hanson’s Scott Perkins, SIOR, Christopher Todd, William Ericksen and Dena Scott represented the landlord, Link Logistics, in the transactions.
560 Jefferson Avenue is an 82,400-square-foot industrial building ideally suited to the demands of today’s distribution and fulfillment-oriented tenants. Located at the intersection of Interstates 95 and 495 with easy access to Route 3, the building is highly accessible from all the region’s most heavily trafficked corridors. 560 Jefferson is also within proximity to the area’s major trade arteries, located only seven miles to New York City and twelve miles to Newark International Airport and Port Newark Elizabeth.
Icera, a leading provider of luxury bath fixtures, recognized the tremendous opportunity presented by this well-located space in one of the hottest industrial real estate markets in the nation. Icera’s new 19,200-square-foot space is perfectly fit for the company to streamline its product storage and distribution operations.
“Today, more than ever, the hyper-competitive nature of the northern New Jersey market demonstrates the need for industrial tenants and landlords to work with experienced and knowledgeable market experts,” said Todd. “For companies like Icera looking to store and distribute products manufactured overseas, 560 Jefferson provides an adaptive space with unparalleled access to both land and sea, perfect for sustainable growth in the long term.”
The remaining 22,800 square feet was leased by the trucking division of San Antonio Broker Services, a trusted source of transportation for harbor, rail, and road container drayage throughout the United States. As one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States, San Antonio Broker Services grew from a team of a few associates to an asset-based company owning and operating an entire fleet of over 95 trucks with temperature-controlled trailers and chassis. In need of industrial/flex space capable of accommodating the firm’s growth, San Antonio Broker Services saw 560 Jefferson as an ideal home.
“It is quite rare in this competitive market to see an industrial building with the accessibility and flexibility of 560 Jefferson Avenue come to the market,” explained Perkins. “We were happy to leverage our experience and local market knowledge on behalf of Link Logistics to help them navigate a complex and fast-moving market and secure two high-quality tenants for this unique space.”
