The Bloomfield-based firm’s new offices will occupy 7,296 square feet on the third floor of Ironside Newark.
Ironside Newark is the former Newark Warehouse that is being redeveloped by Edison Properties into a state-of-the-art, loft-style office space. The mixed-use project will anchor Mulberry Commons, the park that is intended to connect the Prudential Center to the Newark Penn Station. It is situated directly adjacent to Newark Penn Station.
Pearlman & Miranda Managing Partner Isabel Miranda said the firm, founded in 2014, was ready to make a move.
“As we began our search for a new headquarters, it quickly became apparent that Ironside Newark was exactly the kind of first-class, modern venue we were looking for,” she said in a statement.
“Between its prime location, high-speed internet capability and access to all of downtown Newark’s shopping, dining and cultural attractions, our new home at Ironside will allow our firm to continue to grow and thrive for years to come.”
Pearlman & Miranda specializes in public finance, redevelopment, renewable energy, trusts and estates, civil litigation, social investment, bankruptcy and restructuring, horse racing and real property taxation.
Edison Properties’ Executive Vice President of Development Michael Sommer said Pearlman & Miranda will be a perfect addition to the building.
“We’re proud to bring Pearlman & Miranda, a woman- and minority-owned business, to Ironside Newark,” Sommer said. “In today’s market, executives across industries, from law to technology and beyond, are finding modern loft-style offices with open ceilings, exposed mechanical systems, polished concrete floors and rooftop terraces attractive for their companies.
“Since Day One, we were confident that the unique space at Ironside would resonate with a wide variety of prospective tenants, and our partnership with Pearlman & Miranda is proof positive that those convictions were correct.”
Newark Mayor Ras Baraka said the addition of the law firm reinforces the direction the city is going.
“Pearlman & Miranda’s move to Newark reinforces what all of us in Newark have known for some time — that our city is now a prime destination for 21st century businesses and workers alike,” he said. “Through our belief and support for Edison Properties and innovative projects like Ironside Newark, we are better positioned than ever to attract new jobs and continue on our path to becoming a true 24/7 city.”
Ironside Newark, designed by New York City-based design and architecture firm Perkins Eastman, will include 456,000 square feet of modern loft-style and penthouse offices with access to a rooftop featuring green space and views of both Newark and Manhattan.
In addition, retail and restaurant space will front on both Edison Place and Mulberry Commons Park, providing a direct link between Ironside Newark and Newark Penn Station, the Prudential Center arena, the historic Ironbound neighborhood and the rest of downtown.
Ironside Newark, which is now 72 percent leased, also will be home to the North American headquarters of Mars Wrigley Confectionery.
