JERSEY CITY, NJ-The University of Phoenix has signed a lease for 23,790 sf at 100 Pavonia Ave. here. Kevin Welsh, first vice president, and Robert Ryan, associate, with the New Jersey office of CB Richard Ellis arranged the signing. The terms were not disclosed.

The institution, which has more than 150 campuses in 30 states, Puerto Rico and Canada, and also provides on-line degree and continuing education programs, will use the space for the administrative offices, classroom and student resource facilities, according to Dr. George E. Lucas Jr., vice president and local campus director. The school will move its only Garden State campus across town from its current location at 525 Washington Blvd.

100 Pavonia Ave. is a six-story, 100,000-sf office building owned by the Lefrak Organization and situated within its Newport Office Center on this city’s waterfront. The tenant mix of the remainder of the building is primarily financial-related.

“The university required a strategically located facility that offered an appropriate image and exceptional access to mass transit,” says Welsh.
