Since the acquisition, leases have been executed with several new tenants expected to open this year including Georgetown Bank, Convenient MD, and Little Sprouts. The addition of these new tenants will make the shopping center, which is located at the intersection of Route 101 and Portsmouth Avenue (RT 108), a daily destination for local residents and shoppers.
In addition, Lindt Chocolate executed a long term lease extension for their flagship outlet store at the shopping center which is in close proximity to the Swiss chocolate manufacturers United States headquarters. Allstate, Subway and Lady K Salon are expected to remain at Exeter Crossing once renovations are complete. These leases bring the retail portion of the 38,000 +/- square foot neighborhood shopping center to 100% occupancy.
