Kushner Companies has tapped RIPCO Real Estate to oversee leasing and marketing for 40,000 s/f of retail space at Pier Village, the Jersey Shore’s new oceanfront mixed-use complex located in Long Branch.
RIPCO’s Michael Rawlins and Alison Horbach will oversee efforts alongside Kushner’s Max Swerdloff for the development’s third and final phase, which is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2020.
“In a little over a decade, Long Branch has transformed from being primarily a summer getaway to a year-round destination, thanks in large part to Pier Village. As our third phase nears completion, we look back with pride at how this community has evolved into a must visit, live and play place. We’re confident that we will attract a group of retailers that will excite locals and visitors alike,” said Swerdloff.
Together, the team will look to expand Pier Village’s retail offerings, bringing together lifestyle, fitness and F&B operators to join existing tenants that include Lululemon, Avenue Le Club, McLoone’s Pier House, Playa Bowls, Charleston Shoe Company and others.
Pier Village is one of Long Branch’s most upscale residential communities with a thriving retail center that’s home to over 30 restaurants, shops and services as well as public events including holiday ice-skating. In addition to the retail space, phase III includes a 109-key hotel and a 245-unit condominium.
