ORICA Building Closed; Rug Exhibitors Move
September 6, 2013,
600 Meadowlands Parkway has three rug showrooms that moved from ORICA.
SECAUCUS, N.J.-The building known as ORICA--for Oriental Rug Industry Center of America--has been closed and emptied, as the site is scheduled to be redeveloped into a residential building. It previously had about 40 rug wholesalers, with lines ranging from promotional items to high-end handmades.
The building is part of a massive site of over four million square feet in Secaucus, said Ron Simoncini, spokesperson, Hartz Mountain Industries, who manages the site. All of the showroom leases in the ORICA building had expired within the last year, and it's currently under demolition now, he said.
His company, Zollanvari, moved less than 15 minutes away from the ORICA building to 600 Meadowlands Parkway, Suite #130. Two other former ORICA tenants are also at the 600 Meadowlands Parkway address: F.J. Kashanian Rugs is now in Suite #22-A, and Kashee Brothers is now in Suite #21.
Another former tenant, the Oriental Rug Importers Association (ORIA) has moved to 400 Tenafly Road, #699, Tenafly, N.J.
Obeetee has relocated to 295 Fifth Avenue, Suite 908.
