Real estate advisory firm Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) has been retained to lease and market 1 Tower Center in East Brunswick, NJ, following American Equity Partners (AEP)’s successful acquisition of the 417,430 s/f property. Representing AEP is Newmark Knight Frank’s leasing team of Senior Managing Director Jamie Drummond, Executive Managing Director Steve Tolkach, Managing Director Adam Silver, and Associate Directors Andrew Perrotti and Dan Reider.
American Equity Partners plans to bring new amenities, building systems and enhanced transit connectivity to this corporate multi-tenant office building. Proposed renovations include a new amenities center on the 15th floor, including a fitness center, a tenant lounge and a grab-and-go café with views of the New York skyline.
The current conference facility on the 15th floor will also be renovated to accommodate classroom and town hall configurations, designed to foster community and provide collaborative space. A section of the floor will be converted to accommodate the opening of Kahoots, a co-working space.
“We’re excited to work with AEP on transforming 1 Tower Center into a unique building offered to the East Brunswick office market,” said Drummond. “After partnering with AEP on two successful assignments, we now share a strong bond and vision for the property that will enable us to find the right tenants who are looking to attract and retain talent in East Brunswick, NJ.”
The property is located 45 minutes’ driving distance to Manhattan, with immediate access to NJ Turnpike, Route 18 and Route 1. Owners are also planning to increase access to transit via shuttle service to the New Brunswick train station, located 2.2 miles from the building.
Additional renovations from the owner will also include an updated HVAC system and new LED lighting.
