Robust Amenities Offerings Critical to Successful Repositioning O wners and develop- ers considering re- positioning efforts to address the suburban of- fice park properties in their portfolios may not be aware of many of the available, cost- effective solutions. Competing for Class A tenants is within reach, in spite of the challeng- es associated with commercial campuses located well outside of urban centers. JZA+D, an architecture and interiors firm based in Princeton, New Jersey, has led many reposi- tioning efforts of this kind, the results leading to ongoing col- laborative partnerships with our clients. It is critical for the owner- developer to understand why tenant companies are at- tracted to leasable offices in urban settings, where the rent is typically high, spaces are small, and parking op- tions few. The primary reason is that these companies need to recruit and retain talented employees, a growing number of whom (soon to be a majority of the workforce, according to multiple studies) are mil- lennials. The conventional wisdom surrounding this demographic is that they — and the post-millennial gen- eration to follow — prefer a metropolitan lifestyle. This is an oversimplification. When given the option, people of almost any generation will express a preference for the lower costs and ample room associated with the suburbs. This holds true for millennials and post-millennials as long as they perceive they would not sacrifice the highly integrated social atmosphere and density of social activity and amenities on offer in city centers. The key to successful repositioning of office park properties, there- fore, is to work with a design team that can guide a process aimed at replicating an urban lifestyle experience using cost- effective solutions. The primary focus of such efforts pertains to amenities. Living and working ‘down- town’ affords dining, retail, service, and entertainment options within close range. Redeveloping a property’s

shared spaces with robust amenities offerings position the property to compete with office space in the city, and may provide secondary ben- efits as well. Some offerings are essential, such as a café with healthy, enticing food options, while other offerings represent likewise high-value additions to a property: ex- tended-hours food and retail kiosks, fitness equipment with lockers and showers, and even less common options like a drop-off laundry/dry clean- ing counter, or a golf simula- tor. Amenities like these help to position a property as an attractive alternative to city offices, and may simultane- ously create new revenue streams for the owner. This approach to reposition- ing also creates a win-win scenario for the owner and tenant firm: The availability of shared amenities on site re- lieves the tenant of providing certain amenities within their office footprint, allowing them to consider renting a smaller space, which in turn makes it possible for the owner to increase the per-square-foot rental rate, even as the ten- ant firm perceives they have saved substantially on facili- ties costs. Additionally, tenant firms often find that their em- ployees are more inclined to work longer hours, since they have options for food, fitness, and more just steps away. In addition to amenities, effort should be made to rep- licate the highly integrated social atmosphere of an urban center. One approach would be to provide lounge areas and break spaces with comfort- able furniture arranged for occupants to relax, work, or hold informal meetings as they choose. Making Wi-Fi avail- able promotes an atmosphere of connectedness associated

with urban locales, especially when supported with charging stations for devices through- out common areas, even in- tegrated into furnishings. To create a sense of place, community, and belonging, a water feature or sculptural installation can go a long way. Finally, successful repo- sitioning projects typically include significant aesthetic upgrades. Common areas of commercial office buildings designed decades ago are often dark and unwelcoming, but transforming them into bright, inviting spaces for col- laborating or eating and re- laxing is not only achievable, but can be a part of making the facility more sustainable. Many such projects combine light-colored interior finishes and elegant lighting solutions with added transparencies that increase the penetration of natural daylight. Designs that integrate these elements can reduce electrical con- sumption while creating that sense of place that building occupants will appreciate. Further integrating bespoke elements such as graphic art or custom furnishings can even contribute a sense of authenticity — the feeling that the space is organically, intrinsically meaningful — another attribute that mil- lennials and post-millennials gravitate toward. Joshua Zinder, AIA, is founding partner of Josh- ua Zinder Architecture + Design (JZA+D), an ar- chitecture and interiors practice headquartered in Princeton, New Jersey. The firm's international portfolio includes com- mercial, hospitality, re- tail, and residential proj- ects, as well as product, furniture and graphic designs. n

Moblty chief executive officer R ajesh Saggi explained that clients have noticed that Moblty has led to “bigger basket size, higher dwell time, greater loyalty club sign-up, and better product navigation and cross-channel support.” Moblty’s clients include high- profile brands across such sectors as beauty, wine and spirits, hospitality, and airport duty-free shops. “In a short period of time, global companies that have adopted Moblty’s platform in- clude L’Oreal, PepsiCo, LVMH, Wyndham, Advance Auto Parts and many more,” Saggi said. “As retail continues to re-invent itself, for the purpose of sur- vival, modernization, and digi- tization, Moblty is the firm to which businesses are turning.” He credits the State’s Tech- nology Business Tax Certificate Transfer (NOL) Program with helping his business grow.

ANASSAS, VA — The JCR Compa- nies has acquired

the Center at Innovation in Manassas for $31 million. The 101,990 s/f shopping center, shadow-anchored by a Super Target, is over 90% leased to a mix of national, regional, and local tenants including TJ Maxx, PetSmart, Chick- Fil-A, Tropical Smoothie Café, GameStop, Verizon Wireless, and Red Robin. Holliday Fenoglio Fowler represented the seller, EDENS. JCR plans to sell the three pad sites that are currently leased to Chick-Fil-A, Sun- Trust Bank, and Red Robin, and to fully lease the inline space. The new ownership al- ready has begun negotiations TRENTON, NJ — Growing up, Eli Mechlovitz developed an affinity for interior design and mosaics by spending time work- ing in his family’s tile store. In 2006, at the age of 22, Mechlo- vitz acted on that passion and founded Soho Studio in his parents’ basement to provide high-quality and cost-effective tile solutions to customers. As a direct importer and wholesaler, Soho Studio pro- vides its customers with a diverse collection of over one thousand tiles, which have a wide variety of uses, such as backsplashes or flooring in both commercial and residential settings. The business’s initial focus was offering mosaic and “water jet” tiles, for which a high-pressure stream of water is used to cut precise patterns. In recent years, Soho Studio ex- panded its offerings by import- ing and distributing hundreds of styles of porcelain tiles. As it grew from its humble beginnings in Brooklyn, Soho Studio moved first into an 18,000 s/f facility and then to a 50,000 s/f facility, both in New York. In 2016, to accommodate further expansion, Soho Studio purchased a 275,000 s/f ware- house in Delanco and moved most of its operations to New Jersey. Mechlovitz cited the

Through a unique suite of products and services, Moblty enables brands to offer custom- ers digital shopping inside the brick-and-mortar store experi- ence.

In March 2017, Soho Studio took advantage of the New Jersey Economic Develop- ment Authority’s (EDA’s) Premier Lender Program to help improve its cash flow. The company closed on a $9 million TD Bank loan that included a 22.2% EDA participation. “We learned about the EDA from various financial institu- tions we spoke with and could not have been more pleased with the process,” Mechlovitz said. “The EDA offers good loan to value, the rates are competi- tive, and the process is quite seamless.”

EDA president and chief operating officer Tim Lizura visited Soho Studios today to raise awareness of the Premier Lender Program and the range of other low-cost financing solutions offered by the EDA to support the growth of small businesses in New Jersey.
