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."

Frank Normandin, 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."

Mortgage 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.
