The tenant intends to use the property for its field operations in Jersey City.
“Due to the nature of their work, Veolia needed a Jersey City location and Lewis Street satisfied that requirement,” said Somple. “In these situations, location is a key factor as tenants want to find space that has easy access to the major routes within the area they’re operating in. We’re happy to have used our resources to find a quality match between landlord and tenant.”
“While in contract to acquire 35 Lewis Avenue the landlord contacted me to market the property for lease alongside their existing property, 45-47 Lewis Avenue,” said Kristofich. “After bringing the property to market we quickly identified the tenant that perfectly fit what we had to offer.”
