Brokerage firm Blau & Berg announced it has brokered the lease of 50 S. Center St. in Orange to New York-based dried fruit wholesaler Grassland Food. Michael Schipper, senior associate at The Blau & Berg Co. represented the tenant in the transaction.
“Grassland Foods was seeking to improve its business by relocating near the active port of Newark and its network of transport highways,” Schipper said. “Under new ownership, the facility was restored and updated to allow for cleaner and more efficient workspace and is part of a larger revitalization of the area, making it especially appealing.”
Grassland Foods, according to Blau & Berg opted to relocate from Long Island following a period of rapid sales growth. The firm chose to lease 7,271 square feet in Orange for its location along Interstate 280, its adjacency to the Orange NJ Transit station and easy access to I-80 and I-287.
The Blau & Berg Company is based in Short Hills.
