An online furniture and home decor brand has doubled its footprint in Jersey City with a 341,000-square-foot lease at 25 Colony Road, Colliers International NJ LLC announced Thursday.

Article, which moved to Elizabeth just two years ago, decided to relocate to a bigger facility in Jersey City, Colliers said.

Colliers’ Mike Markey, Jon Tesser and Troy Skibitsky, based at the firm’s Woodbridge office, and Andrew Lord, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, headed the assignment.

“We selected the Jersey City facility to more than double our previous warehouse capacity and help us accommodate demand from our growing customer base,” Aamir Baig, co-founder, CEO and director at Article, said. “Its location will enable us to quickly serve the catchment of New Jersey and New York based customers and beyond.”

“Article was just named the fastest-growing company in Canada, and its rapid expansion here in New Jersey illustrates its pace of progress,” Markey said. “The free-standing building at 25 Colony Road accommodates its immediate and pipeline space needs while providing outstanding accessibility to the Port Newark-Elizabeth.”
