ENGLEWOOD, N.J. – Metro Community Church has renewed its 6,200-square-foot lease at 291 South Van Brunt Street in Englewood, announced Key Properties. The recommitment maintains full occupancy at the 9,000-square-foot, Bergen County property.
Situated in the desirable Palisades submarket, just one block from Route 4 near a Radisson hotel, 291 South Van Brunt Street offers easy access to the George Washington Bridge, local hospitals, shopping and dining. Key Properties acquired the asset as a flex building in 1979 and gradually transitioned the single-story structure to full office use, according to Marc Schlussel, co-managing partner.
“We recognized the need for additional, boutique-style office space in the neighborhood, and our leasing success at 291 South Van Brunt Street has proven that point,” Schlussel said. “Metro Community Church has been with us for five years, and we take great pride in continuing this relationship. We look forward to accommodating its space requirements for many years to come.”
The contemporary, culturally diverse Metro Community Church utilizes its space at 291 South Van Brunt Street for administrative offices. Since beginning its tenancy in 2012, the Christian congregation has grown its presence in the building by about 30 percent.
“The entire Key Properties team is professional and responsive,” said Pastor Kevin Swanson of Metro Community Church. “The firm has been highly accommodating, particularly as our space needs increased. We appreciate the opportunity to maintain our offices within Englewood, proximate to our worship space.”
