Kearny Bank is expanding its corporate footprint in Fairfield by nearly 26,000 square feet, under a newly completed lease with Accordia Realty Ventures.

The fast-growing lender, which is headquartered at 120 Passaic Ave., has taken space at the adjacent Greenbrook Executive Center at 100 Passaic Ave. It now plans to move several service lines into the new location when the lease commences this month.

“Greenbrook is in close proximity to our corporate headquarters and with its high-quality building standards, will provide the space necessary to bring several business units together under one roof while also allowing plenty of room for our continuing expansion,” said Erika Sacher, Kearny Bank’s executive vice president and chief administrative officer.

The 25,847-square-foot lease is the latest at Greenbrook Executive Center, which is now 95 percent occupied, following recent deals with Bleakley Financial Group, Bederson LLP, Chadler Solutions, Financial Northeastern Cos., Vaco and O’Keeffe Financial Partners. Accordia recently completed a two-phase renovation of the 202,030-square-foot building, which included new HVAC equipment, flooring, railings, carpeting, lighting, TVs and wall coverings, along with an updated café and new elevator cabs installed in 2017.

Located just south of Route 46 and Interstate 80, Greenbrook has been recognized by the Building Owners and Managers Association. Tenants at the property have quick access to Interstate 280 and other area highways.
