Larken Associates negotiates lease to bring performing arts studio to Hillsborough

Larken Associates on Tuesday said it negotiated a new lease for 1,432 square feet with Arya International at Amwell Mall in Hillsborough.

Rob Marek, executive vice president of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates, represented Larken in the transaction.

Located at 450 Amwell Road, just off Route 206 in the heart of Somerset County, Amwell Mall is a highly visible, recently renovated 35,398-square-foot shopping center with a range of retail, office and medical spaces. The property is just nine miles north of downtown Princeton and seven miles south of the Somerville Circle and also features a convenient traffic-controlled entrance and abundant on-site parking. Amwell Mall’s highly flexible units are home to a variety of food and service options, including Bagel Bistro, Ivy Rehab Physical Therapy, La Costenita and Thai Chili House.

Arya International is a renowned and leading South Asian performing arts institution with locations across the U.S. dedicated to teaching South Asian dance techniques, music, singing and acting to students of all ages. From concerts to community shows to competitions, the studio encourages students to perform and conquer the stage with confidence.

“Flexibility is one of the most important features a property can have when it comes to attracting high-quality tenants,” Marek said. “Amwell Mall continues to provide the flexibility needed for businesses of all types to set up shop and make an impact on the community. We’re proud to have played a role in bringing a successful dance studio to Hillsborough, and wish Arya International and their staff the best of luck as they begin their journey at Amwell Mall.”
