CARLSTADT, N.J.— The Donna Karan Company, a subsidiary of LVMH, has signed a new lease at 400 Commerce Boulevard, owned by Russo Development.

In this 197,445-sq. ft. long-term lease, Thomas Carragher of Studley Inc. represented The Donna Karan Company, and Michael J. Pembroke, senior vice president – leasing & marketing, along with Adam Pasternack, director of leasing for Russo Development, represented the ownership.

The building, which will include approximately 23,615 sq. ft. of renovated office space, will serve as Donna Karan’s regional distribution hub for its signature apparel and accessories.
