Value Asset Management Executes Leasing Program for 40-Unit Downtown Montclair Rental Building

Value Asset Management (VAM) has successfully executed the leasing program at The Montclarion at Bay Street Station in Montclair, N.J., once again proving why developers and property owners call upon the advisory and management firm when seeking results. 

The Clifton, NJ-based company completed leasing for the project’s 40 rental homes for local developer and owner Richard Polton.  After achieving the notable milestone and the successful stabilization, VAM will remain on hand to direct management and operations for the five-story LEED-certified building.

The Montclarion at Bay Street Station is located at 125 Bloomfield Street steps away from Montclair’s Bay Street New Jersey Transit Station.  The building follows in the footsteps of The Montclarion, a 56-unit rental building originally built in 1985 and recently upgraded.

“Retaining Value Asset Management was a decision that provided incredibly positive returns for The Montclarion at Bay Street Station,” Mr. Polton says. “It allowed us to tap into their extensive resources which include a market expertise and full staff of in-house leasing and marketing professionals, maintenance personnel and industry advisors.   This ensured the building would receive considerable rental interest and be quickly absorbed.  Our relationship with them has paid big dividends.”

VAM, a full-service division of Value Companies, provides management capabilities and customized asset solutions to third-party real estate investment and property owner clients.  The Montclarion at Bay Street Station is one of many assignments the company has in northern New Jersey.   VAM has a well-respected track record and proven ability to market ground up developments and turnaround existing apartment complexes.  Its notable successes include Dorchester Manor in New Milford, NJ and Arlington Park in North Arlington, NJ.
