NAI Hanson brokers space for new business in Chatham

NAI James E. Hanson, a Hackensack-based commercial real estate firm, announced it has brokered a lease for office space with Village Play Café LLC in Chatham.

The space is approximately 4,580 square feet and is located at 17 Watchung Ave.

Andrew Kirshenbaum and Tom Ryan of NAI Hanson represented both the landlord, James Prisco Jr., and the tenant, Village Play Café, in the deal.

Village Play Café, which is slated to open in August, offers children up to five years old a unique and interactive play space.

“NAI James E. Hanson has worked extensively with the landlord of 17 Watchung to secure quality tenants throughout the ownership of the 18,500-square-foot office building,” said Kirshenbaum.

“As we continue to see a decrease in suburban office demand, finding creative usages for existing office space will be crucial for landlords hoping to maintain high occupancy rates. We were happy to help bring this new business to Chatham while enabling our long-time client to maintain profitability at his building.”
