In one of the largest office leases in South Jersey this year, Colliers International negotiated a full building lease at The Colwick Business Center, a 174,658-square-foot three-building complex located in the heart of Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The complex, located at 53-57 Haddonfield Road is owned by Colwick Property, LLC, an affiliate of Endurance Real Estate Group and Blue Vista Capital Management (“Endurance”). The Tenant is the State of New Jersey, who will occupy the entire 55 Haddonfield building (61,694 SF), in the form of various agencies. Construction of the leased space has commenced, and the State’s targeted occupancy date is late summer 2018.
Albert J. Corr, Senior Vice President of Endurance, who negotiated the lease on behalf of the Landlord stated, “This lease fills a huge block of vacancy in the market and raises the complex’s occupancy rate to 90%. The building’s efficient layout and unmatched location are ideally suited for this type of tenant.” Corr added, “Colwick is adjacent to the Cherry Hill Mall, which enables all of our tenants to benefit from the rich amenity base in the immediate surrounding area.”
This is the second lease Colliers facilitated at Colwick on behalf of Endurance within the last 30 days. Colliers leased a 5,025 SF suite to Virtua Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation at 53 Haddonfield Road. Whether these two transactions indicate an upswing in the Cherry Hill office market is yet to be determined, however Cherry Hill has recently performed well with reported positive net absorption at Towne Place at Garden State, Commerce Center recently trading at ±$150 PSF, and PNC leasing a full floor at Woodland Falls. Colwick has current space availabilities ranging from 2,600 SF to 12,000 SF.
Endurance was represented by Colliers International’s Brian Sherlock, Evan Zweben, and Christina Del Duca.
