SECAUCUS, NJ-Scharff Weisberg Inc. has leased 95,000 sf of industrial space at 77 Metro Way, here, a 385,000-sf building owned by the locally based Hartz Mountain Industries. The company, which provides audio/visual, lighting and post-production products and services for a variety of exhibits and shows, is relocating across the Hudson River after spending the past 29 years in Manhattan and Queens.

“This facility will provide Scharff Weisberg with the space and capacity they need,” says Emanuel Stern, president and COO of Hartz, in a prepared release. The new tenant’s Lighting Division has already begun its move from Long Island City, and the company’s other divisions are expected to be in place by the end of June.

“In terms of real estate, we’ve been victims of our own success for the past three years,” says Josh Weisberg, president of Scharff Weisberg, in a prepared release. “We have been forced to juggle our limited shop capacity s our business has expanded. “This new space will allow our audio, video and lighting shops to provide well-coordinated service.

“We’ll be the only facility in the metro area that will house state-of-the-art lighting, audio, convergence and video shops under the same roof,” Weisberg says in the release. “We’ll now have more than adequate space to prep a show of any size while keeping the same distance from Midtown Manhattan as we have now.”

The building at 77 Metro Way is located within Hartz’s Harmon Cove Business Park, off Route 3 and the New Jersey Turnpike in Hudson County. The 95,000 sf of space taken by Scharff Weisberg also comes with a dozen loading docks.

Besides the space at 77 Metro Way, Scharff Weisberg has also taken 8,000 sf of office space at a Hartz-owned building nearby, on the appropriately named Lighting Way. The company will use that space, at 300 Lighting Way, to house its finance, administrative and sales staff.

Terms of the two transactions were not released. Space in the two buildings is listed with asking rates “available on request.” Hartz was represented in-house by Ernie Cristoph and Charlie Reese.
