Alfred Sanzari Enterprises Collaborates with Better Spaces to Launch Office-Based Flexible Tenant Engagement Service for First Time in New Jersey
Partnership will promote employees’ personal and professional wellness through full suite of experiential amenities and programming at Glenpointe in Teaneck
Teaneck, N.J. (April 29, 2019) – Alfred Sanzari Enterprises, a preeminent family-owned and operated commercial and residential real estate firm, announces a partnership with Better Spaces, a flexible, solutions-focused amenity and tenant engagement service, at Glenpointe owned by Alfred Sanzari Enterprises, one of New Jersey’s premier office destinations. The partnership is designed to enhance the employee experience and promote work-life balance through an experience-based agile amenities platform that is one of the first of its kind in New Jersey.
The Better Spaces service launched on April 29th at Glenpointe, a 50-acre campus comprising over 650,000 square feet of premier Class A office space. Better Spaces is slated to initially occupy 1,500 square feet of office space in Glenpointe’s main corridor. The central location will allow Better Spaces’ Glenpointe hub, The Pointe, to offer easy access to all tenants at Alfred Sanzari Enterprise’s flagship property. Programming for the community lounge will change regularly to offer fresh amenities that are driven by tenant engagement and interests such as ping pong, yoga, and chair massage. The Pointe will also include private meeting spaces and a kitchenette with infused water available at all times. Beyond The Pointe, Better Spaces will have a robust presence at Glenpointe throughout the complex’s ample common area space, offering a full schedule of programming to enhance personal and professional wellness and establish a stronger sense of community for tenants.
“We consistently look for new ways to ensure that Glenpointe can continue to be one of New Jersey’s premier office destinations,” said Ryan Sanzari, COO at Alfred Sanzari Enterprises. “Our partnership with Better Spaces will not only continue to drive us toward that goal but also give us the opportunity to learn and better respond to the needs of our tenants in real time. The actionable data Better Spaces’ platform provides will allow us to home in on tenant preferences and satisfaction to deliver a truly superior tenant experience. We are confident that this platform will add tremendous value to the community we’ve built at Glenpointe and continue to attract New Jersey’s top companies to the space, while maintaining our strong roster of tenants.”
Headquartered in New York City, Better Spaces is a platform developed to create and operate amenity spaces using technology and modular space to help better amenitize existing buildings and provide the experiences in demand from employees, tenants and landlords today. Since its inception in 2017, Better Spaces has worked with many of New York’s leading landlords to engage and retain tenants through its machine learning technology and agile amenities. A real estate tech company with a human touch, Better Spaces utilizes an app to engage the tenant population, which acts as a "key" for tenants to access the amenity space, sign up for classes and programs, and book available private rooms. As the technology leader in tenant amenities and insights, the platform also provides measurable data to landlords and community managers that enables them to tailor programming and amenities in line with demand from each of their unique tenant populations.
“Better Spaces was created to fill a void in today’s office amenity equation. As a real estate tech company with a human touch, we take an innovative approach to tenant engagement by combining flexible space, technology and programming to curate programs and configure amenity space to meet tenants’ evolving needs,” said Janera Soerel, Director of Programming, Better Spaces. “Our agile amenities platform not only transforms the employee experience but also provides landlords with previously unknown insights to better understand tenant satisfaction and predict tenant retention in the critical years of a lease. We’re pleased to be collaborating with Alfred Sanzari Enterprises to expand our footprint into the New Jersey market while creating a vibrant environment at Glenpointe that will empower employees to live their best work lives.”
The Pointe officially launched today with a robust schedule of programming for the week, including body-focused activities such as yoga and meditation, a ping pong tournament and a chair massage station. A “Wellness Bar” is also now open to all employees, offering cold-pressed juices and healthy breakfast snacks. The Pointe also features a full-time community manager who works with tenants to learn more about their interests in order to ensure there is robust programming and strong community engagement. The full schedule of programming is now available to Glenpointe employees via the Better Spaces app. For more information on Better Spaces, please visit: https://betterspaces.com/.
