5 Garret Mountain Plaza, a New Jersey office building located at a four-way interchange of I-80, is set to undergo a substantial renovation that will offer a blank canvas for companies seeking technologically advanced office space and amenities.

The 101,880-sf building is approaching the renovations with a “live-work-play” mentality. The renovations will include a full-service café, fitness center, conference center, and rooftop deck. Surrounding the building will be landscaping, nature trails, and views of Garret Mountain Reservation.

“Today’s workforce is younger than ever before, and companies often are challenged to find buildings that offer millennial employees a collaborative, productive work environment backed by a full complement of dynamic lifestyle amenities and conveniences,” says David Simson, Vice-Chairman and CEO of Newmark Knight Frank, the building’s leasing agent.

The building is seeking a sole tenant or a lead tenant of at least 50,000 sf. 5 Garret Mountain Plaza is part of a larger campus that includes two other buildings and a total of 401,000 sf of office space.

The building was originally 100% leased to Cytec Industries, a chemicals and materials technology company, and has not been available since it was built in the early 1980s.

Mountain Development Corp. owns the three-building campus.
