Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) is pleased to announce the completion of a 10-year lease at 15 Gardner Road in Fairfield, New Jersey, on behalf of Aarkish Pharmaceuticals LLC. NGKF Associate Director Trevor Patterson represented the tenant in the transaction, which was valued at $1.1 million.
“Aarkish Pharmaceuticals and I evaluated geographical locations based on the company’s client base and employee travel time, and we established Fairfield as the most ideal area,” said Patterson. “Having a tight timeline, we were very fortunate to secure 15 Gardner Road, as the inventory for Aarkish Pharmaceuticals’ desired layout and ceiling height requirement is extremely limited in the area.”
15 Gardner Road-a single-story industrial warehouse-style building-displays a classic brick façade, several large windows and 22-foot ceilings that allow for maximum natural light. The property is approximately 30,000 square feet, of which Aarkish Pharmaceuticals will occupy 14,698 square feet. The property also offers convenient highway access, with proximity to the Garden State Parkway, I-80, I-287 and Route 46. The property is owned by Prologis.
“I am pleased to have worked with Aarkish Pharmaceuticals and Prologis in this transaction, as everyone was very flexible and communicative,” Patterson noted. “The landlord was also cooperative and considerate in completing the transaction within the challenging timeline. I think both companies will be very pleased in the outcome of this transaction.”
