● GSAM / MADISON MARQUETTE
Partners purchase Newark shopping center
Goldman Sachs Asset Management Private Real Estate, together with Madison Marquette, have acquired Springfield Avenue Marketplace, a newly constructed, 112,000 s/f retail center in Newark, NJ.
Built by Tucker Development, the property is 100 percent occupied and anchored by a ShopRite grocery store with a mix of restaurant, retail, and medical tenants.
GSAM PRE and Madison Marquette expect to see population increase in the area due to new multifamily construction and corporate expansions.
Springfield Avenue Marketplace is located a mile from Newark Penn Station at the intersection of Springfield Avenue and Jones Street, adjacent to five NJ TRANSIT bus stops, and near the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine.
“Although Newark has experienced substantial mixed-use development with an influx of residential development, the city remains underserved in terms of grocery retailers,” said Joseph Gorin, Co-Head of GSAM PRE.
“We are excited about the opportunity to acquire a retail center that meets a need in the community by providing a full-service grocer, ample dining options, and quality retail vendors that are committed to serving Newark.”
Springfield Avenue Marketplace is GSAM PRE’s seventh retail investment and fourth acquisition in New Jersey over the past 18 months.
