A company that provides mobile solutions for the education industry has leased headquarters space at a Newark building, according to owner The Berger Organization.
Gadget Software, an app developer, signed for 4,000 square feet at 58 Park Place, The Berger Organization said Monday in a news release. The tech startup will occupy a second-floor space in the building.
“We looked at a variety of factors when choosing the location for our first office, including economics and accessibility,” Dan Crain, Gadget’s CEO, said in a prepared statement. “There is a lot to be said about Newark. Beyond being an affordable alternative to other urban markets, the city is undergoing a renaissance right now that is driving economic development, something we heavily believe in.
“We are pleased to be part of a growing foundation of technology companies doing business here. And we have the luxury of being just 15 minutes from New York City.”
The 30,000-square-foot 58 Park Place is also home to headquarters for the Garden State Ballet, Habitat for Humanity and Tempo Networks.
“At a time when leasing activity is ticking upward across Newark’s diverse tenant base, it also is becoming clear that the city’s superior data capacity positions it to become a hub for tech startups like Gadget Software and, ultimately, a national hub for the tech sector,” Miles Berger, chairman and CEO of The Berger Organization, said in a statement.
