HILLSBOROUGH, N.J. – Jump! Zone will establish its latest party and play center at Hillsborough Business Center, the 27-building complex of managed office style/flex warehouse and distribution facilities surrounded by Homestead Road, Stryker Lane and Raider Blvd in Somerset County’s Hillsborough.
Jump! Zone of Central New Jersey has signed a 17, 631 square foot lease and will combine eight suites at 6 Jill Court in the Hillsborough Business Center where the second indoor inflatable party and play center will open in New Jersey, according to Larken Associates, its developer/owner/manager. Victor Kelly, executive vice president of Raider Realty, the exclusive broker for Larken Associates, arranged the seven year and one month lease signing.
“We chose to lease space at Hillsborough Business Center because of the convenient location to Route 206 which will allow families from all the surrounding towns to easily get to Jump! Zone,” says Gayle Harris, who owns Jump! Zone of Central New Jersey with her husband Jonathan. “We also liked that many people are already familiar with the area due to the movie theater and many of the other family friendly businesses in the center. As Hillsborough residents we wanted our business to be part of the town. We also liked that the complex is well maintained.”
“Jump! Zone is a highly-recognizable brand that is active in 20 states,” adds Mr. Kelly. “This will be there second location in New Jersey and is a prime example of how Hillsborough Business Center fits the needs of franchisers looking to bring a nationally known business into central New Jersey by offering flexible business space that can be customized and designed to fulfill specific requirements.”
More than 41,000 square-feet of space has been leased at Hillsborough Business Center during the first half of 2010 alone.
“The fact that leasing is up at Hillsborough Business Center is a sign that the New Jersey commercial market is unquestionably heading towards a recovery,” Mr. Kelly says. “It also indicates the strong demand at this complex which provides state-of-the-art office/warehouse space, reasonable lease rates and an easily accessible central New Jersey location. We expect this demand to continue to grow as we head into the second half of 2010 and the commercial marketplace gains ground.”
The one-story, modern buildings at Hillsborough Business Center are located in a park-like setting on Raider Boulevard, just off Route 206.
Tenants enjoy built-to-suit floor designs with offices and private bathrooms, separate utilities, natural gas heating systems and wet-sprinkler fire protection. Available are 18 to 20 foot clear ceiling heights, large overhead drive-in doors and tailgate loading docks and level concrete floors reinforced for heavy loads.
“The final four buildings provide some of the campus’ most desirable space situated on a private cul-de-sac street,” points out Robert Marek, another Raider Realty Vice President. “They can be designed to fit tenants’ specific needs and offer an array of upgraded features and conveniences, such as drive-in doors and loading docks. “
Hillsborough Business Center offers easy access to major thoroughfares such as Routes 287, 206, 78, 22 and 1, providing a short commute from prominent business and residential centers, as well as renowned medical facilities such as Somerset Medical Center, Princeton Medical Center and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital — a definite advantage for health-related companies.
Larken Associates began the property’s first buildings in the 1980s. Continual expansion since then has resulted in a wide array of tenants — from users of office, warehouse, distribution and flex space to a dance center and a gymnastics school.
