We are excited to add these properties to our portfolio and look forward to continuing to create value for our shareholders.”
The acquisition was brokered by CBRE’s National Retail Partners team, led by Casey Rosen and Dennis Carson. CBRE’s Debt & Structured Finance team, led by Amy Julian and Brad Williamson, arranged financing for the acquisition.
Delray Beach is a popular tourist destination located in Palm Beach County, Florida. The city has a population of approximately 70,000 and is known for its vibrant downtown area, beautiful beaches, and cultural attractions. The retail properties acquired by Site Centers are located in a prime location within the city, with easy access to major highways and a strong demographic profile.
Overall, the acquisition of this retail portfolio in Delray Beach is a strategic move for Site Centers, as it continues to expand its portfolio of high-quality shopping center properties in strong markets. With a strong tenant roster and a prime location, these properties are well-positioned for long-term success and are expected to generate strong returns for Site Centers and its shareholders.
