Cillick and Smith Renews, Expands at Court Plaza North in Hackensack

Hackensack, NJ |

Law firm Cillick and Smith renewed its lease and expanded by 1,100 square feet for a total of 3,000 square feet at Court Plaza North. Located at 25 Main Street, the Class A office property is owned and managed by Hackensack-based Alfred Sanzari Enterprises.

The transaction was negotiated in-house by Stephen C. Jennings, vice-president of leasing and marketing. Daniel Foley of Savills Studley represented the tenant.

The firm – led by partners Edward W. Cillick and Suzanne M. Smith, and associate Jill Horowitz – is experiencing continued growth, which necessitated the expansion. Cillick and Smith’s practice areas include personal injury, criminal defense, worker’s compensation and family law.

“Our practice has grown and the need for additional office space became a reality,” said Cillick. “Our first and only consideration was to augment our existing space at Court Plaza North, which has been our home for almost 20 years. The building’s location directly across from the Bergen County Courthouse, extensive on-site amenities and the excellent relationship we enjoy with Alfred Sanzari Enterprises made the decision to expand our space here a very easy one.”

The 335,000-square-foot Court Plaza office complex encompasses Court Plaza North, Court Plaza South and Court Plaza East. All tenants enjoy a landscaped plaza with fountains and seating areas, covered parking, a full-service bank, shoe shine/repair and dry cleaning services, eco-friendly car wash service, a fitness center, public transportation to New York City and Northern N.J., a cafeteria with indoor and outdoor seating, and a common meeting room. Court Plaza is just one mile from I-80, and Routes 4 and 17.

“Court Plaza provides an outstanding amenity package and high-profile business setting for tenants who want to be in the heart of Hackensack’s thriving walkable downtown district,” said Jennings. “Cillick and Smith has been a Court Plaza tenant for almost 20 years, and we are pleased to have been able to accommodate their additional space requirements. We look forward to being part of this successful law firm’s growth for many years to come.”
