The Avidan Group is a family-owned and operate industrial real estate developer headquartered in Elizabeth, N.J.
Initially focused on the North Jersey Metro, where the multi-generational company has been active for 60+ years, The Avidan Group has deployed a successful expansion strategy while remaining attentive to each tenant’s unique needs. It is this core value that serves as a springboard for bolstering each of our client relationships – the backbone of our business.
While remaining focused on the development, ownership and hands-on management of quality, well-located single and multi-purpose industrial real estate properties, The Avidan Group maintains a strong presence throughout several major hubs along the East Coast. By casting a wider net and growing its portfolio in these key markets, The Avidan Group continues to record year-over-year exponential market growth.
Eye on the Future
Today, The Avidan Group is actively involved in managing 1MSF of industrial real estate assets – from warehouse/distribution centers to flex space and outdoor storage. We have a strong and active presence across New Jersey, Maryland, Tennessee and Florida. The Avidan Group has built its business – and that of its tenants – based on a client-first partnership philosophy. At The Avidan Group, we believe investing in relationships is the key to building business. And our future.
While subscribing to the initial core beliefs and visionary business philosophies established by its predecessor firm Avidan Management, The Avidan Group, LLC (TAG) has expanded its business model to align with and exceed the expectations of its clients in today’s ever-evolving marketplace. In addition to cultivating existing relationships and forging new ones, TAG strives to deliver best-in-class facilities and agile, personalized service excellence that deliver the highest results. TAG’s success is defined by the axiom “relationships matter,” and reflected in our role as more than a landlord in a traditional sense. The Avidan Group is your partner and an extension of your business.
