Global design firm Gensler has been selected to perform an extensive renovation on Overlook at Great Notch, a 425,000-square-foot, trophy office building at 150 Clove Road in Little Falls, NJ. This renovation kicks off a multi-million dollar repositioning program for the building, following its recent recapitalization.
The repositioning program will be focused on enhancing every aspect of the tenant experience. The renovations will modernize all common areas of the building including the lobby, elevator cabs, bathrooms, corridors and cafeteria and will create a state of the art conference center, a fully equipped fitness center and a grab-and-go with a coffee bar.
“Ownership selected Gensler through an in-depth interview process of the top architecture firms and are confident that their world-class work will further enhance this Class A trophy asset,” said Richard Mirliss, Executive Managing Director, Colliers International, who along with colleagues Richard Madison, Anthony Rinaldi and Brian Cass, represents Overlook at Great Notch exclusively. “Ownership is fully committed to the refinanced property and this full-scale renovation will make it the leading corporate space in the area.”
With 44 offices and more than 3,900 employees worldwide, Gensler has deep expertise in design and architecture across 20 practices, including commercial office buildings, professional services, retail, aviation, planning and urban design, entertainment and hospitality, sports stadiums, and education facilities.
Perched on a hill at the juncture of Routes 46 and 3, Overlook at Great Notch is minutes from the Garden State Parkway and I-80, offers stunning panoramic views of New York City and New Jersey. The building also provides corporate tenants up to 200,000 square feet of contiguous available space, making it the only remaining trophy building opportunity of this size in the Meadowlands Submarket.
The facility includes covered parking, a full-service cafeteria, Wi-Fi access, 24-hour security, onsite ownership and management, with immediate access to mass transit, and is within walking distance to the Montclair State University train station.
Other tenants in the building include Morgan Stanley, Roche / Genentech, Mass Mutual, Cantel Medical, Sentrx Safety Solutions, and Systra Consulting.
