FORT LEE, N.J., February 12, 2013 – Southpole, the streetwear fashion giant, has appointed commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. to market 85,000 square feet at its world headquarters, 222 Bridge Plaza South in Fort Lee. This marks the first time in the 128,000-square-foot, Class B building’s history that a portion has come online for lease.
According to Mark Zaziski, who is on the leasing team with David DeMatteis and Jun Choi of Cushman & Wakefield’s East Rutherford, N.J., office, the opportunity for prominent building signage and unobstructed views of the George Washington Bridge and New York City highlight the offering.
“The location is fantastic,” he added. “The building is directly accessible from the George Washington Bridge, interstates 80 and 95, routes 4, 1 and 46, and the Palisades Parkway. The building provides covered parking at a rate of 3/1,000 vehicles and spillover at an adjacent municipal parking complex. Additionally, a bus stop with service to New York City is located next door.”
And while 222 Bridge Plaza South has been a single-tenant, owner-occupied property since it was built, the seven-story building’s 21,000-square-foot floor plates are well suited for dividing. A tenant or tenants would benefit from Southpole’s established on-site building management, 24/7 security and full-service cafeteria as well.
“Southpole is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful privately owned streetwear apparel brands; fewer people know the company is a long-time real estate investor,” Zaziski noted. “The company purchased this property in 2005 and, since then, has invested in ongoing improvements to maintain its quality and infrastructure. Now the company is ready to build out interior spaces to suit tenant needs.”
Zaziski added that space at 222 Bridge Plaza South is available immediately, with furniture included.
