Previously practicing in a busy North Jersey group, Bryan Abessi’s, M.D., F.A.A.O., deep experience in general ophthalmology, cataract, and corneal surgery make him one of the state’s most respected ophthalmologists. Recognizing the tremendous opportunity provided by the Somerset County market, Dr. Abessi sought to start his own practice to serve the ophthalmological needs of patients throughout the area. Slated to open in November 2020, Abessi Eye Care & Surgery will bring Dr. Abessi’s patient-centric approach to eye care to Somerset County, offering a wide range of services including routine eye exams, cornea and retina care, cataracts, glaucoma care, and diabetic eye exams. 

Located along Route 22 West with easy access to Routes 28, 31, 202 and 206 and Interstates 78 and 287, Branchburg Commons is an ideally situated build-to-suit medical and professional office campus in the heart of Somerset County. Spread across 19 acres of professionally landscaped and managed grounds, the 15-building complex offers 116,526 square feet of commercial space along with on-site daycare, abundant parking spaces, and high-speed internet access. This combination of location, adaptability and amenities has made it the preferred home for a diverse array of professional and medical tenants like Dr. Abessi.

“It is obvious that location and adaptability will continue to be the leading differentiators for tenants in our regional market in the challenging 2020 real estate landscape,” said Rob Marek, Executive Vice President of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates. “As we have seen at Branchburg Commons, the property’s location along an important regional thoroughfare and adaptability to a variety of uses has continued to make it one of Somerset County’s premier professional campuses.”

Dr. Abessi added, “While there are many challenges in opening a business during the COVID-19 pandemic, the responsive and helpful team at Larken Associates ensured that every aspect of the leasing and buildout process for my new office has been seamless. I appreciate their hard work in helping me realize my dream through the opening of my new practice in Branchburg.”
