The Vitamin Shoppe has inked a long-term commitment at 400 Plaza Drive, Secaucus, brokerage firm Cushman & Wakefield announced today. The retailer will relocate its back-office operations from North Bergen to the Harmon Meadow property and take 28,000 square feet.
C&W’s Curtis Foster and Jerry Shifrin brokered the transaction on behalf of the landlord. Gregory Barkan and Remy deVarenne of CBRE represented Vitamin Shoppe in the transaction.
“The property’s ownership has created a premier work environment at 400 Plaza Drive, and securing a tenant of The Vitamin Shoppe’s caliber testifies to the building’s enhanced appeal,” Foster said. “With its existing headquarters across the street, The Vitamin Shoppe already recognizes the advantage of being located in Harmon Meadow, which blends urban conveniences and suburban appeal. Now even more employees will benefit from this vibrant live/work/play setting.”
The Vitamin Shoppe’s new office in Secaucus is located at the intersection of US Route 3 and the New Jersey Turnpike.
Harmon Meadow is a 4.4 million square feet mixed-use complex with shuttle service to the Secaucus Junction train station and a new 450-unit apartment complex developed by Hartz Mountain.
“Founded in 1977, The Vitamin Shoppe is the second-largest vitamins, minerals and supplements retailer with over $1 billion in annual revenue and close to 800 stores throughout the United States and Puerto Rico,” Cushman & Wakefield said in a news release.
