Cushman & Wakefield Inks Three Leases at One Harmon Plaza

Active leasing continues at One Harmon Plaza in Secaucus, with three additional firms joining the tenant roster at the 192,000-square-foot, Class A office building. The commitments mark more than 46,000 square feet of new tenant activity since the property changed hands in February, according to Cushman & Wakefield’s David DeMatteis.

DeMatteis, along with David Sherman, Marc Trevisan and Slava Vaynberg, based in the commercial real estate services firm’s East Rutherford office, serve as exclusive leasing agents for One Harmon Plaza. A partnership of Mountain Development Corp. (MDC) and PCCP, LLC owns the New Jersey Meadowlands asset.

  • eAppeals Commercial, which specializes in medical billing and revenue cycle management solutions for hospitals and large physician practices, leased 7,025 square feet at One Harmon Plaza. The firm, headquartered in Hollywood, Florida, relocated its regional operation to the property from Clifton, New Jersey, in an expansion play. The company is a previous Mountain Development Corporation tenant. Cushman & Wakefield’s Dan Johnsen assisted DeMatteis and his team with the eAppeals Commercial lease.
  • PKB Engineering, which provides comprehensive engineering and consulting services to the public and private sectors, leased 2,401 square feet at One Harmon Plaza. The firm will relocate to the property from Lyndhurst, New Jersey, in a flight-to-quality move, according to DeMatteis.

Drawn by the building’s accessibility, Noble Construction Group relocated its headquarters to One Harmon Plaza from Jersey City, New Jersey, last year.

Recently, the company expanded its space by an additional 2,665 square feet.

Derek DeMartino from Jones Lang LaSalle represented the construction management and general contracting company during negotiations.

Earlier this year, the ownership announced the execution of two other major leases: a 22,000-square-foot lease with Penn Jersey Advance Inc. and a 10,500-square-foot lease with FolioDynamix.

“The motivations behind these firms choosing One Harmon Plaza point to the building’s distinguishing attributes,” DeMatteis said. “The track record and dedication of its ownership, the image and flexibility of its accommodations, and its prime location and easy access in the heart of the Meadowlands are quickly and resoundingly putting One Harmon Plaza back on the map.”

One Harmon Plaza is located in the Harmon Cove business park, along the New Jersey Turnpike/I-95 at Exit 16W, just seven miles from New York City. Shuttle service links the park directly to Secaucus Junction station. Tenants benefit from structured parking and onsite services, along with neighborhood dining, retail and lodging. Cushman & Wakefield is marketing several remaining opportunities at the building, including one contiguous block of 48,000 square feet with striking Hackensack River views. The opportunity for building-top signage facing the Turnpike and Route 3 also is available for a large user.  Known for its distinctive cube-shape design and mirrored glass façade, One Harmon Plaza was constructed in 1978 by Hartz Mountain Industries and originally served as that company’s headquarters. It features high visibility from the Turnpike, as well as panoramic views of the Manhattan and Newark skylines, and the New Jersey Meadowlands.
