Signature Acquisitions, one of the region’s most active and prestigious owners/managers of Class A suburban office space, announces it negotiated over 60,000 square feet of new, expanded and renewed office space leases across its New Jersey portfolio during the fourth quarter of 2022. This activity caps a strong year of leasing activity for Signature Acquisitions, which saw over 200,000 square feet of leasing within its New Jersey office portfolio.
Signature continues to achieve success in navigating one of the most challenging office markets in recent memory, resulting from its commitment to offering superior properties in strategic locations, while maintaining and managing them with a focus on tenant satisfaction.
Showcasing Signature’s continuing success in a challenging office market are several new, expanded or renewed leases with several prestigious companies, including the recent 27,000 square foot lease with nationally-prominent Turtle & Hughes, one of the nation’s leading electrical and industrial distributors, serving multiple industries from commercial real estate through utilities and infrastructure. Turtle & Hughes will relocate its corporate headquarters to Signature’s 100 Walnut Avenue property in Clark, N.J.
In addition, 100 Walnut Avenue saw significant additional activity, with new leases inked for 6,050 square feet by the medical office of Joseph D. Alkon, M.D., who specializes in plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as a 3,626 square foot lease to Decker Associates, an insurance broker.
Located off the Garden State Parkway at Exit 135, 100 Walnut Avenue offers convenient access to the greater metropolitan area, and boasts superior tenant amenities, including an on-site full-service cafeteria, shared conference facility and first class on-site property management and ownership.
Additionally, Signature Acquisitions reports approximately 19,000 square feet of office leases, expansions and renewals over the fourth quarter of 2022 in their Garden State Parkway portfolio, led by a 6,491 office space renewal by Ascend Hospice at 65 Jackson Drive.
