SECAUCUS, NJ—Hartz Mountain Industries, based here, has signed on to do a 338,850-sf local industrial building for Lantis Eyewear Corp., a sunglass designer and distributor. The build-to-suit project is expected to be finished in September, 2001.

The leased facility, which will serve as a warehouse/distribution operation with ancillary office space, is more than triple Lantis’ current location in the region (the company is based in New York), and the largest facility of any US-based eyewear company.

Insignia/ESG represented Lantis in the transaction. Hartz, which represented itself, currently owns and operates a private portfolio of 175 buildings totaling more than 34 million sf in the New York/New Jersey area.
