Commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefieldhas been named leasing agent for 440 Route 22 East in Bridgewater. The 198,376-square-foot, Class A office building is under new ownership, with a substantial capital improvement program set to launch this fall.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Shawn Straka and Bill Brown, based in Morristown, N.J., are heading the assignment on behalf of American Equity Partners, which purchased 440 Route 22 earlier this year. “Our client has completed a series of recent New Jersey acquisitions, establishing a firm foothold in the marketplace and embarking on a program of property improvements to take its new assets to modern standards,” Straka said. “The work planned for 440 Route 22 will do just that.”
American Equity Partners will renovate the building’s lobby, full-service cafeteria and common areas; update its elevator cabs; and incorporate LED lighting throughout the building. The LED program will carry through to the parking lot, which also will be re-striped. The company also will install rooftop solar panels.
“Our efforts are focused on enhancing aesthetics and improving operational efficiencies at 440 Route 22 East,” noted American Equity Partners’ David Elkouby, partner. “Ultimately, we are committed to providing a workplace that accommodates today’s tenant desires for attractive, sustainability-focused workplaces.”
Tenants at 440 Route 22 East benefit from on-site management and ample parking, and enjoy features such as an outdoor courtyard overlooking a pond. The building sits in a bustling commercial corridor – proximate to retail, childcare, hospitality and recreational offerings – with easy access to major regional thoroughfares including interstates 287 and 78, and routes 28, 202 and 206.
