Brunelli & Co., LLC, exclusive leasing agent for the property. As planned, the site will house two buildings with a total of approximately 94,200 square feet of space.

Floor & Décor’s third New Jersey store will occupy a 74,200-square-foot freestanding building feet at the site, where construction is expected to begin next spring. Developer Mocci Industries of Woodbridge anticipates that tenants should begin opening in the fourth quarter of 2017.

R.J.
