Lee & Associates brokers 160K sq. ft. lease in Union for Easton Coach

Passenger ground transportation provider Easton Coach Co. has leased 160,000 square feet of industrial space at 601 Lehigh Ave. in Union, according to a Tuesday announcement from Lee & Associates New Jersey.

The commercial real estate firm’s Joseph Komitor and Scott Deutchman served as tenant brokers in the transaction. Jordan Metz and Eric Koons of Bussel Realty represented the property owner.

Easton Coach provides motorcoach and transit services in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and beyond. The company is contracted with New Jersey Transit to provide ADA paratransit services as part of the NJ Transit ADA Access Link Program in multiple regions, most recently adding Union and Essex counties. The program provides public transportation to individuals with disabilities who are unable to use local bus service.

“Our site search for Easton Coach focused on finding a location with proximity to serve residents in this new service area,” Komitor said. “The location also needed to be zoned for transportation operations and provide plenty of on-site parking. 601 Lehigh Ave. checked every box.”

Set on more than 7.5 acres, the property offers multiple ingress/egress points, 2 acres of on-site parking with 150 vehicle spaces, and 24-hour access.

The transaction underscores Lee & Associates’ expertise working on behalf of ground transportation providers.

“Having successfully placed several similar transportation tenants in northern New Jersey, our team was very familiar with the highly specific and unique needs of a business such as Easton Coach,” Komitor added. “We are pleased to be part of the company’s expansion as it provides valuable paratransit services to residents in the regional market.”
