Ironside Newark draws second law firm tenant

Edison Properties has attracted another law firm to its adaptive reuse project known as Ironside Newark, inking a 4,000-square-foot lease with a boutique litigation practice.

The developer and owner announced Thursday that Robinson Miller, which is already based in Newark, has become the latest tenant to commit to the property. The firm will move its headquarters to the third floor of the building, which sits at McCarter Highway and Edison Place, when it opens in mid-2019.

The transaction comes two months after Edison announced a 7,296-square-foot lease with Pearlman & Miranda, a law firm that will relocate from Bloomfield. The developer has now leased 73 percent of Ironside Newark’s loft-style office space, which makes up the bulk of the building’s 456,000 square feet.

“We’re excited to welcome Robinson Miller to Ironside Newark, and believe its addition to the building is a testament to the evolution of today’s office market,” said Michael Sommer, Edison Properties’ executive vice president of development. “In today’s market, all prospective tenants are seeking a unique, dynamic environment for their workers.
