NAI James E. Hanson helps trade office building in Montclair to relocating law firm

NAI James E. Hanson has negotiated the sale of a 6,000-square-foot office building in Montclair to a law firm that is relocating from Nutley.

Hanson’s Jessica Curry represented the buyer, Birkhold & Maider LLC, and Evergreen Commercial’s Joe Defeo represented the seller, Looney Realty LLC, in the transaction.

Located at 7 N. Mountain Ave., the property is a three-story office building originally constructed as a Victorian-style single-family home.

Recently renovated, the building boasts stained glass windows, fireplaces with tile surrounds in each office, inset seating and other appealing features. Beyond its design, the asset sits at the busy intersection of North Mountain Avenue and Bloomfield Avenue across from the Montclair Art Museum provides easy access to the wide range of restaurants, shops and entertainment options found in downtown Montclair.

The property is also just one mile from the Walnut Street New Jersey Transit Station, offering direct access to New York City, and is approximately 12 miles away from the Newark Liberty International Airport.

Birkhold & Maider is a full-service law firm specializing in personal injury representation, claims support, settlement, litigation, municipal and criminal cases, and more. Relocating from its office in Nutley, the firm recognized the opportunity to make a strategic investment in the future of its growing business through the purchase of the newly renovated and well-located space.

“7 N. Mountain Ave.’s high visibility and optimal location within Montclair were driving forces in the buyer’s decision to purchase the property,” Curry said. “The distinct historical charm of the building made this transaction very unique, and I wish Birkhold & Maider LLC all the best with their new space.”
