The Vitality Center, a wellness and chiropractic practice, is expanding in Hauppauge.
The center, owned and operated by Dr. Jason Pape, leased 10,000 square feet of office space at 35 Arkay Drive within the Long Island Innovation Park at Hauppauge. The Vitality Center relocated to its new digs from its previous location at 66 Austin Blvd. in Commack.
Pape began his career with a chiropractic practice in Commack 20 years ago. He briefly relocated to a gym in the Hauppauge Industrial Park and in 2013, Pape opened his holistic one-stop shop called The Vitality Center in the Austin Boulevard building.
“Over the next 10 years the center grew and flourished, in large part due to our ability to serve the people who worked in the park,” Pape said. “As our center continued to grow, I saw the need to find a larger space. Having built strong ties to many people and businesses in the park, combined with its ease of access and ability to house a large space, I felt it was important to stay.”
However, Pape said finding a new office close to his old location with the right amount of space to accommodate the growing center wasn’t easy.
“Even with a healthy supply of office space availability, it was still challenging to find the right space for The Vitality Center,” said Newmark broker Daniel Gazzola, who along with Newmark colleague Jordan Oliver, represented the tenant. “With tight geographical, configuration, and timing constraints, it was difficult to find the right location. We are very happy we were able to keep Dr. Pape in the Hauppauge Industrial Park so he can continue to serve his patients.”
Newmark’s Gazzola and Oliver of represented the tenant, while Rich Pino of R&R Realty represented the landlord, Marcus Arkay Realty, LLC, in the Hauppauge lease transaction.
