Echo Shopping Center SPRINGFIELD, NJ 08/27/2021

Larken Associates, a regional leader in commercial and residential real estate building, development and management, announces it has negotiated a commercial lease with Dental Care Springfield for 2,400 square feet of retail space at Echo Plaza Shopping Center located at 901 Mountain Avenue in Springfield, NJ. Shane Wierks of Jeffrey Realty represented Larken Associates and Dental Care Springfield in the real estate transaction.

Located in the heart of the most heavily trafficked retail corridor in northern New Jersey, Echo Plaza Shopping Center is a 66,567-square-foot community retail center with ample highway frontage along Route 22 and Mountain Avenue. The shopping center’s superior visibility and accessibility make it a highly attractive destination for a diverse range of tenants. The center also includes Larken Associates’ Echo Executive Plaza, a 41,000-square-foot Class-A office building that is home to a wide range of financial, insurance, medical spaces and professional services companies.

With a career spanning 30 years, Dr. Jerome Simon, the owner of Dental Care Springfield, recognized the prime location and favorable area demographics made Echo Plaza an ideal spot for a brand-new dental practice. Scheduled to open in September, Dental Care Springfield will soon bring an unparalleled dental experience to residents of northern and central New Jersey.

“We have long understood that no matter what the broad macroeconomic forces facing the retail market are, location and adaptability will be timeless differentiators among properties that see consistent demand,” said Victor Kelly, Executive Vice President of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates. “Echo Plaza is emblematic of the success of that approach as we have continued to see strong demand from tenants like Dental Care Springfield over the past several years of economic uncertainty.”

“Dental Care Springfield is delighted to bring 30 years of combined clinical experience, modern technology such as TVs above the dental chair and old fashion customer service to the Springfield community,” added Dr. Simon, owner of Dental Care Springfield.
