NEWARK, NJ –– Engineering consulting firm GeoDesign Inc. has leased 3,000 s/f of office space at The Berger Organization's Military Park Building, located at 60 Park Place in Newark. The landmark 250,000 s/f office tower is situated in the heart of the City’s central business district.
GeoDesign Inc. is headquartered in Middlebury, Conn. and has additional offices in Vermont and New York. Since its inception, GeoDesign Inc. has served as a consultant for hundreds of projects, including commercial/industrial buildings, high-rise buildings, healthcare facilities, public and private schools, highways, bridges, dams and levees, among others.
“We selected the Military Park Building based on the suite layout and size, building location, reasonable cost, high occupancy rate, and the fact that the Berger Organization manages their own buildings,” said Thomas Thomann, PhD, PE, GeoDesign Incorporated PC. “They have been very responsive to our needs and expedited the fit out so that our office could get up and running quickly.”
The lease commitment is the latest in a series of new leases and renewals at 60 Park Place. Earlier this year, the Newark Downtown District (NDD) – a privately funded 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to revitalizing downtown Newark – leased 11,400 s/f of space.
Anthony McMillan, CEO of NDD was impressed with the way 60 Park Place is managed. “(The Berger Organization’s Chairman and CEO) Miles Berger is very cognizant of the work we provide to the community and he – and his entire staff – has been a joy to work with. They have made the entire process as seamless as possible, and we look forward to moving into our new office space this fall.”
“We are pleased to welcome these new tenants to 60 Park Place,” said Brendan Berger, vice-president of The Berger Organization. “For its price point, 60 Park Place arguably is one of the nicest office buildings in Newark in terms of its physicality, location, on-site amenities and services. The building’s manager, Sam Bacchus, does an excellent job of maintaining the building and developing personal relationships with tenants. There’s a real sense of community that exists among those who work in this building.”
Tenants of the 21-story office tower enjoy on-site parking, an attended lobby, a fitness center, conference facilities, and on-site ownership and management. The property is in proximity to Newark Liberty International Airport and many major thoroughfares. It is within walking distance to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and Penn Station.
