ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ – September 15, 2020 — / — JLL has completed a 30,000-square-foot lease expansion and extension with OwnBackup Ltd. at 940 Sylvan Avenue in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, on behalf of property owner Andalex. The market-leading cloud-based data backup and restore provider, a tenant at the property since 2018, will expand and extend its lease, doubling its footprint to occupy the entire 60,000-square-foot Class-A office building with in the Sylvan Corporate Center, a burgeoning tech and finance hub.

“Sylvan Corporate Center is an ideal location for companies seeking Manhattan-quality, Class-A office space located minutes outside of New York City,” Recine said. “This office complex, in the heart of Englewood Cliff’s famed ‘Trillion Dollar Mile,’ provides the perfect environment for OwnBackup as it continues to expand its client base in the Tri-State area.”

OwnBackup, which previously occupied the full first floor of 940 Sylvan Avenue, will now occupy the 30,000-square-foot second floor. The property, located near the intersection of Sage Road and Sylvan Avenue/Route 9W in Englewood Cliffs, is part of the Sylvan Corporate Center, which includes 910, 920, 930 and 940 Sylvan Avenue. The best-in-class center is made up of four two-story office buildings that are linked by a central lobby. The office destination offers on-site food service, covered parking, private parking and on-site management, as well as state-of-the-art telecommunications infrastructure.

The spacious complex totals approximately 300,000 square feet of dynamic Class-A office space, and offers ample open space to accommodate outdoor employee collaboration and client meetings. The facility has experienced enormous momentum in recent months, attracting interest from New Yok City tenants struggling to negotiate New York City’s density and mass transit during the pandemic. Andalex is positioned to satisfy the needs of New York City tenants seeking well-located space in a highly attractive setting.
