Jordan Metz , vice president of BRC, was responsible for the 10-year deal and repre- sented both Prograde Design and the landlord in the trans- action. “Working with my client, Michael Rubinstein, the owner of Prograde Design, was a pleasure and he was thrilled to expand his firm into quality industrial space at a lower rental rate as com- pared to the pricing Brooklyn

is commanding,” Metz said. “With very few quality op- tions available in the New Jersey industrial market, I was able to locate the ideal facility for his firmwhich will bring new jobs to the local market.” As an active broker in the industrial market, in particu- lar around the ports, Metz also completed a string of other recent transactions: •15,000 s/f lease renewal at 509 Capolita Plaza in Rahway, New Jersey, repre- senting the tenant, Grignard Company, a specialty chemi- cal company, and the land-
