Larken Associates Continues Renovations and Leasing at Raritan Valley Professional and Medical Center in New Jersey

RARITAN, NJ 05/14/2017

Larken Associates breaks ground on 14,000 additional square feet of built-to-suit office and medical space in Raritan, New Jersey. The once undervalued and neglected Raritan Valley Professional Center, formerly known as the Henderson Building, was acquired in 2015 and is growing to more than 70,000 square feet of prime professional real estate by September 2017.

The complex houses two buildings with available medical space for lease; a third is now under construction. Each received interior and exterior renovations including new landscaping, LED lights and signs for greater visibility. Raritan Valley Professional Center is conveniently located near the Raritan Valley Country Club and two major Somerset County shopping centers – Somerset Circle Shopping Center and Somerset Shopping Center. The property is easily accessible from Routes 22, 28, 31, 202, 206, and Interstates 78 and 287, making the center a popular location for business and medical offices.

Larken Associates is happy to announce the property’s largest building, at 40,000 square feet, is 100% leased. The three-story structure was upgraded with new lighting, carpeting and wall coverings in the main lobby. The building now boasts a fitness center for tenants and a new south side lobby. The property features ample parking and handicap accessibility, an important feature of Larken Associates’ building profile.

Building 2, the 17,000 square foot Carriage House, is original to the property. Once owned by the late New Jersey Senator, Joseph S. Frelinghuysen Sr., it is the site where President Warren G. Harding signed the Knox-Porter Resolution in 1921, effectively ending the United States’ involvement in World War I. A plaque commemorating the signing exists on estate grounds along Route 28.

The Carriage House is now fully renovated with new bathrooms, LED lighting, high-end fixtures and finishes. The building has all new windows, roofing and HVAC systems, yet maintains the integrity of the structure’s original character and style. Office space in the Carriage House is more than 70% pre-leased and set for occupancy June 1st, 2017.

The property’s third office and medical building is slated for completion September 1st, 2017, with occupancy scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year. It was designed along the same style as the renovated Carriage House and will add another 14,000 square feet of office and medical space to the property. Tenants can opt for private bathroom facilities and kitchenettes. The building is currently 20% pre-leased.
