Lee & Associates SVP negotiates 2 retail leases

The Elmwood Park-based real estate firm Lee & Associates New Jersey announced that it has negotiated a pair of retail leases, in Berkeley Heights and Fairview.

The Paisley Box bridal gift shop leased 2,500 square feet at 700 Springfield Ave. in Berkeley Heights, while Boost Mobile leased 1,650 square feet at the Fair-Ridge Shopping Center at 239 Bergen Blvd. in Fairview.

Lee & Associates’ Josh Krantz, senior vice president, negotiated both leases. He represented both the landlord and tenant in the Fairview deal and represented the landlord in the Berkeley Heights deal.

He said of the latter transaction, “The property is centrally located near the vibrant Berkeley Heights commercial corridor that attracts a large traffic count, which the tenant was looking for.”

Krantz, who has more than 40 years of commercial real estate experience, joined Lee & Associates in August as it grew its retail services team.
