JET.COM DOUBLES-DOWN ON HOBOKEN: E-Commerce Juggernaut Expands HQ in ‘Silicon Square’
So how’s Jet.com doing? By the looks of things, pretty darn good…
After opening its corporate HQ right here in Hoboken last year, SJP Properties today announced that the e-commerce venture has agreed to expand its headquarters at Waterfront Corporate Center III—doubling the size of its corporate offices by an additional 40,000 square feet, for a total of 80,000 square feet.
SJP’s mixed-use business center, Waterfront Corporate Center III was developed in partnership with USAA Real Estate Company, and recently achieved LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
“We’re excited to continue working with SJP Properties to expand Jet’s space on the Hoboken waterfront,” said Marc Lore, Jet.com’s founder and CEO. “We have an innovative, tech-focused office that is helping lead the Hoboken tech community. SJP has also been supportive of our commitment to being cost efficient and smart with how we expand our footprint in phases that reflect our growth as a company.”
“Jet’s rapid growth at Waterfront Corporate Center III follows NICE Systems’ decision to relocate here, further illustrating Hoboken’s position as a top destination for the regional technology community, which benefits significantly from access to the area’s highly skilled labor pool,” said Steven J. Pozycki, CEO of SJP Properties. “We have created an environment here in Hoboken where businesses can flourish in world-class office facilities without sacrificing access to transportation, amenities and commerce.”
Situated within the heart of Hoboken’s master-planned, pedestrian-friendly waterfront, Waterfront Corporate Center is the city’s most successful mixed-use development. The three-building complex comprises 1.5 million square feet of Class A commercial space adjacent to the W Hoboken Hotel and just steps from Hoboken Terminal’s NJ Transit, PATH, NY Waterway Ferry and Light Rail connections.
In addition to Jet and NICE Systems, a prestigious roster of leading-edge companies calls Waterfront Corporate Center home, including Marsh & McLennan, Thomson Reuters, RMS and Octapharma. Pearson Education occupies 200,000 square feet to serve as the lead tenant of Waterfront Corporate Center III, which also houses collaborative workspace provider Regus.
The location benefits from proximity to downtown Hoboken’s renowned shopping, dining and entertainment options, as well as two piers that have been converted into beautiful, water-surrounded recreational parks and a tree-lined boulevard, all of which contribute to Hoboken’s 24/7 lifestyle and walkable amenities.
SJP is currently marketing Waterfront Corporate Center III’s available office space in the tower floors of the building.
