JLL Selected as Exclusive Listing Agent for Woodmore Towne Centre

Mid-Atlantic retail team adds to its already impressive management portfolio

WASHINGTON, DC, September 27, 2016 – JLL has been chosen to manage the retail leasing for the Woodmore Towne Centre, a flourishing development minutes from the Capital Beltway east of Washington, DC. The development currently operates over 700,000 square feet of retail space anchored by Wegmans, Costco, J.C. Penney, Best Buy and Petco in the retail portion of this 245-acre mixed-use development.

The success of existing retail at Woodmore Towne Centre, with steady increases in year-over-year sales and thriving activity, has prompted the expansion into a second phase which has already landed the tenancy of Nordstrom Rack. Phase 2 brings an additional 90,000 square feet of retail space, raising the total to 800,000 square feet, plus 1,100 residential units which are already under development, two hotels and one million square feet of new office space.

"Woodmore Towne Centre is an especially dynamic environment and the retail new expansion is going to add to a complex that already has so much to offer," said Greg Ferrante, Senior Vice President for Retail at JLL. "There is excitement in the market for a development that is well-situated and able to respond to an active clientele."   

Conveniently located in Glenarden, MD at the interchange of I-495 and Landover Road, Rte. 202 in Prince George's County, Woodmore Towne Centre has more than 1,000 feet of frontage on the Capital Beltway. It is a joint development of Petrie Richardson Ventures and Prudential Global Investment Management.

The brokerage team is led by JLL's Thomas Jackman, Andy Corno and Greg Ferrante who already handle leasing at another Petrie Richardson property, The Centre at Forestville, a redeveloped enclosed mall with 463,461 square feet of retail space. Woodmore Towne Centre is the latest success for JLL's Mid-Atlantic retail practice which has grown tremendously in the last year from two people managing only two properties to a collection of 10 talented professionals who oversee 42 properties and millions of square feet of retail space.
