Larken Associates Negotiates Professional Office Lease with Consulting Firm at Princeton, NJ Office Complex

Montgomery Commons PRINCETON, NJ 02/10/2021

Larken Associates announces it has negotiated a professional office lease with AKRF at its Montgomery Commons private office campus located at the intersection of Route 206 and Applegate Road in Princeton, NJ.

Established in 1981, AKRF is a multidisciplinary consulting firm specializing in environmental, planning, and engineering services. With integrated services across a range of technical specialties, AKRF provides a single-point resource for the most complex, controversial, and time-sensitive projects. Operating out of offices throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, AKRF’s deeply experienced team consistently helps bring a variety of initiatives – public and private, large and small – from planning to approval to implementation. Previously occupying an office along Route 1 in Princeton, AKRF’s new private office suite at Montgomery Commons will allow the firm to expand its presence more efficiently in the market as they assist with the wide range of public and private projects throughout the greater Princeton area and the region.

Situated off of Route 206 a few short miles north of downtown Princeton and less than a mile from the Princeton Airport, Montgomery Commons is a 59,000-square-foot, nine-building turn key class a office complex offering flexible and modern private office spaces tailored to the needs of businesses of all types. Complementing its timeless Colonial Williamsburg-style design, the commercial rental complex also boasts a variety of features designed around promoting employee health and safety including offices with private entrances, bathrooms, and kitchenettes, as well as dedicated, individual HVAC units for each professional office suite.

“With the ongoing, albeit slower than expected reentry of workers to their workplaces, we are seeing a tremendous focus placed on design features and layouts that promote safety and wellbeing,” said Rob Marek, Executive Vice President of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates. “For many companies, campus-style offices like Montgomery Commons provide the ideal balance of location, safety, and flexibility that they are seeking as they lease office space in these uncertain times.”

Jeffrey Entin, Principal and Senior Vice President of AKRF added, “After more than three decades in office buildings along Princeton's Route 1 corridor, I thought traffic and rent were the price to pay to be in Princeton - but we could not be happier with AKRF's new Princeton office at Montgomery Commons. Our space is professional, quiet, and convenient to downtown Princeton and our clients around the area. I was extremely pleased with the ease and professionalism at which we were able to negotiate our lease, and how quickly Larken was able to get us into our new space. We look forward to welcoming our clients and employees safely back to the office in the coming months.”
