HFF announces $25.5M financing for acquisition of New York-area power center

MORRISTOWN, NJ – March 13, 2019 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces that it has arranged $25.5 million in acquisition financing for Woodbridge Crossing, a 285,211-square-foot power center located in the central New Jersey community of Woodbridge, New Jersey.

The HFF team worked on behalf of the borrower, PAG Investments, to place the five-year, fixed-rate loan with Citizens Bank. 

Woodbridge Crossing was completed in 2001 and recently renovated in 2018.  Nearly 80 percent leased, the center is home to a variety of national and regional tenants, including Burlington Stores, Big Lots, Planet Fitness, Altitude Trampoline Park, Modell’s, Party City, Thomasville, Sprint, Miracle Ear and FedEx Office.  Situated on 19.09 acres at 451-479 Green Street in one of New Jersey’s prime retail corridors, Woodbridge Crossing is in the North Edison/Woodbridge Retail submarket adjacent to the intersection of U.S. Routes 1 and 9, exposing the center to approximately 85,000 vehicles per day.  The center is in Middlesex County, the second most populated county in the state, and more than 136,700 residents earning an average annual household income of $93,207 live within a three-mile radius of the center.

The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower included managing director Michael Klein and managing director Rob Hinckley.

“HFF is pleased to have helped PAG Investments secure financing once again,” Klein said.  “PAG had a unique opportunity to acquire a value-add retail center in one of the state’s primary retail corridors.  In a short time, PAG Investments will be able to execute its business plan and stabilize the center.”
