Hardware and a 4,000 s/f Sleepy's.
Daniel Katz, a principal of
Katz Properties said, "With our management team based in Massachusetts,
Fairhaven Plaza was a natural buy for us. We remain committed to the New
England market and are primed to acquire more shopping centers with
market-leading grocers. This is our sixth acquisition in 2012 and we are
working on several others before year end."
president of Winslow Property Management, a Katz Properties affiliate,
said "We were excited to pursue this opportunity right in our backyard.
Fairhaven is in a densely populated trade area and the shopping center
has great visibility - the property fits right in with our existing
portfolio of supermarket anchored shopping centers."
financing for Fairhaven Plaza was provided by Member's Capital of
Madison, Wisconsin and was arranged by Tim Breda of Goedecke & Co.
CBRE's national retail investment group, led by Chris Angelone, Bill
Moylan and Nat Heald, represented both Katz Properties and the seller in
the transaction. Leasing and property management services will be
provided by Winslow Property Management.
