Hampshire Real Estate Companies
Morristown, N.J.-based Hampshire Real Estate Companies has acquired the 3.2-acre property at 33 Route 17 South, in East Rutherford, located just west of the Meadowlands. The site is currently occupied by the former Landmark, a 225,000-square-foot, three-room catering facility that closed its doors 2013, and a 55,000-square-foot industrial building. Hampshire Cos. plans to redevelop the property into a 100,000-square-foot self-storage facility, a retail store, and a gas station, according to NorthJersey.com. It’s not known if the existing structures are going to be demolished, although it’s possible that they could be converted to fit the new program.
