Taco Bell to join Twin City Shopping Center in Jersey City

Taco Bell has begun construction on its new lease at the Twin City Shopping Center in Jersey City, according to Levin Management Corp., the property’s exclusive leasing and managing agent.

The fast-food restaurant has committed to a 2,100-square-foot lease at the 94,000-square-foot center.

A grand opening celebration is in the works for Taco Bell as well as three more new tenants, including Kidz Village (14,000 square feet), T-Mobile (1,500 square feet) and 1HOURREPAIR.com (1,500 square feet).

“New Jersey is filled with good-news examples of how properties can leverage adaptation to survive and thrive in today’s changing retail environment,” Matthew K. Harding, LMC CEO, said. “With the right oversight, shopping centers can remain competitive decade after decade. The leasing resurgence we are experiencing at Twin City Shopping Center is a prime example of how forward-looking landlords and operators are successfully ‘rethinking’ properties to keep them relevant and focused on community needs.”

The center is within close access to the New Jersey Turnpike’s Exit 14A, LCM said.
