Iselin, New Jersey (PressExposure) October 11, 2011 -- Richter Grusd, a commercial real estate brokerage firm serving New Jersey, announced a 30,000 square foot long term lease with Goodwill Industries of Southern NJ and Philadelphia at 1 North Mall Drive in Ocean Township. This location will act as Goodwill's premier Monmouth county store along with their regional distribution center to service five other locations in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
"Located at the crossroads of Routes 35 and 66 by the Asbury Circle, 1 North Mall Drive is situated on one of the entrance roads to the Seaview Mall," says Doug Richter, Managing Director for Sperry Van Ness. "It's a 70,000 square foot retail building with approximately 40,000 square feet of retail showroom plus 30,000 square feet of warehouse. Retail tenants can keep their inventory under one roof to feed their stores in the region versus leasing a separate warehouse elsewhere."
"Goodwill is thrilled to have just opened its second location in Monmouth County," says Goodwill's Chief Operating Officer Michael Shaw. "Our Ocean Township location will serve as our northern territory hub and enable for continued expansion. We thank our local shoppers and donors for welcoming Goodwill into the community."
Richter Grusd also signed a lease with At Home Recreation, a retailer of pools, spas and gaming tables, to the remaining 40,000 square feet bringing the building to 100% occupancy on both transactions.
Managing Directors Doug Richter and Ian Grusd were both named Top 20 Advisors in the country by Sperry Van Ness International (SVNI) out of more than 800 advisors nationwide this year. Additionally, a 2011 survey from The Lipsey Company reports that the organization was named as the 10th most recognized brand in commercial real estate.
