Bell Works announced Monday that it signed six new tenant leases while renewing contracts with five companies.
The 11 companies join a growing roster of businesses that allow tenants and visitors to work, shop, dine, stay and entertain in a 2 million-square-foot campus that likes to bill itself as the country’s first “metroburb” — or a self-contained metropolis in suburbia.
Ralph Zucker, president of Inspired by Somerset Development, the developer behind Bell Works New Jersey, said the companies contribute to the unique and dynamic energy at the metroburb.
“These new agreements are a testament to the lasting demand for physical office space,” he said. “These company’s belief in our one-of-a-kind commercial destination can help them not only attract and retain employees, but allow their businesses to continue to grow and thrive.”

Jeff Garibaldi, president at the Garibaldi Group — the exclusive broker of Bell Works — said the site sells itself.
“When prospective tenants investigate the competitive market, they are quick to find that there is no other building that provides the array of amenities, services and entertainment that Bell Works provides,” he said. “It’s an inspiring ecosystem that motivates employees to come to work, which is top priority for employers today.”
Garibaldi; Tara Keating, vice president; and Lindsey Florio, broker support analyst, represented Bell Works New Jersey in all transactions.
