Brooklyn e-commerce business signs lease in Linden

A Brooklyn-based e-commerce company has leased an entire 18,000-square-foot industrial building in Linden, according to real estate services firm Bussel Realty Corp.

The company, whose name was not disclosed, signed for 607 E. Edgar Road, which is owned by Academy Realty Group LLC. Jordan Metz, a senior vice president with BRC, represented both parties in the transaction.

“This transaction with a Brooklyn-based e-commerce company further illustrates the trend of e-commerce users leasing more and more space in New Jersey, especially near the ports and Newark Liberty airport, since firms can reach New York City metro area customers overnight or within hours,” Metz said in a prepared statement.

The property, located directly off Route 1-9, has 12-foot ceilings and an overhead drive-in door, among other features.
