Habitat Restore Signs Long Term Lease in Hamilton, NJ
Vantage Real Estate Services is thrilled to announce another successful large-scale lease in Hamilton, NJ. Ken Richardson, Advisor, and Monica Walsh, Director of Client Services, at Vantage RES worked closely with Lori Leonard, CEO, and John Garton, CFO, of Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County & Greater Trenton/Princeton. All parties worked diligently to secure a long-term lease of approximately 20,000 SF, modern facility that will accommodate their 2nd Restore® Location.
“It was a pleasure working with the Vantage RES and Habitat team. Together we were able to move quickly towards a seamless transaction. We are excited to bring Restore to the center,” stated landlord Michael Jemal of IP Associates.
Garton worked closely with Richardson and Walsh to identify the space and secure a lease for a new Restore® located at Independence Plaza, Hamilton, NJ.
“We are so appreciative of the support we received from Vantage Real Estate Services while negotiating the lease terms for our second ReStore. Having the resources available that the Vantage team provides made the process almost effortless for us and allowed for us to continue business as usual knowing the transaction was in good hands,” Garton stated.
