Lightbridge Academy Expands to Second Hoboken Location

Lightbridge Academy, an early-childhood education daycare and development center, signed a 13,000-square-foot sublease at 1414-1418 Willow Ave. in Hoboken, NJ. This marks Lightbridge’s second location in Hoboken and 40th in New Jersey.

CBRE’s Joseph AmecAngelo and Nicole Nannola negotiated the lease on Lightbridge’s behalf.

“With more than 3,000 children in Hoboken under 4 years old, the demand for childcare is growing and Lightbridge Academy required additional space for its second location in the neighborhood,” said Nannola.

She continued, “The daycare center is a well-known and respected New Jersey childcare provider meeting the needs of the community. These services will continue to be highly sought-after as the population grows and families nest longer in urban markets before migrating to the suburbs.”

Noting that Lightbridge has tapped CBRE for its expansion locally and nationally, AmecAngelo added, “We are strategically selecting the markets and physical locations that best match the company’s customer profile.”
