First Bergen Renews, Expands at Court Plaza North in Hackensack

Hackensack, NJ |

HACKENSACK, N.J., April 13, 2016 – Full-service title insurance agency First Bergen Title Agency LLC (First Bergen) has renewed and expanded to 2,800 square feet of headquarters office space at Court Plaza North in Hackensack, N.J. Located at 25 Main Street, the Class A office property is owned and managed by Alfred Sanzari Enterprises.

The transaction was negotiated in-house by Alfred Sanzari Enterprises.

Family owned and operated since 1957, First Bergen has been a Court Plaza tenant since 1986, according to Allen Meccia Jr., the firm’s managing member. The full-service title insurance agency protects the interests of lenders and purchasers of residential, commercial, re-use and industrial properties.

“Over the past three decades, Court Plaza has become synonymous with the First Bergen brand. My father negotiated our original lease with Alfred Sanzari and today, both our firm and Alfred Sanzari Enterprises are being led by the children, and grandchildren, of these original dealmakers,” said Meccia Jr. “Court Plaza provides us with exceptional first-class office space in proximity to the Bergen County Courthouse and our attorney clients. Our expanded offices will allow us to continue providing premier service to clients for many years to come.”

The lease transaction underscores Alfred Sanzari Enterprises’ success in maintaining long-lasting relationships with tenants throughout its portfolio of properties, according to Stephen C. Jennings, vice-president of leasing and marketing.

“Because of our relationship-centered approach to the real estate business, it is not at all uncommon for us have tenants for 30 or more years,” said Jennings. “First Bergen’s lease extension is a testament to Court Plaza’s desirability as well as Alfred Sanzari Enterprises’ ability to build and maintain long-lasting tenant relationships. We look forward to being part of First Bergen’s continued growth and success for many years to come.”

The 335,000-square-foot Court Plaza office complex encompasses Court Plaza North, Court Plaza South and Court Plaza East. 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 Routes 4, 17, and I-80.
