ShopRite-anchored retail center sold in suburban Philadelphia

JLL Capital Markets closed the sale of the Sewell, New Jersey, center 

January 20, 2021

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 20, 20201 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Mill Pond Village, a 94,550-square-foot dominant retail center anchored by ShopRite in the suburban Philadelphia community of Sewell, New Jersey.

ShopRite, the dominant grocer in Southern New Jersey, has called Mill Pond Village its home for close to 13 years. Inspira Health, Orangetheory fitness, Hair Cuttery and AAA, among others, round out the tenancy of the 98-percent-leased center.

The center spans two buildings at 380 Egg Harbor Rd., which is an infill location approximately 14 miles from Center City Philadelphia. The center is surrounded by local demand generators, including Rowan University and Jefferson Health, and serves a trade area that includes 161,499 residents within a five-mile radius.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Directors Jim Galbally, Chris Munley and Jose Cruz and Senior Directors Colin Behr and Steve Simonelli.

“Throughout the pandemic, we have seen exceptionally strong demand from investors for grocery-anchored shopping centers,” Galbally said. “Mill Pond Village is exactly what investors are looking for today; ShopRite is the dominant grocer in Southern New Jersey, and the property is located in a trade area with strong demographics and a growing employment base.” 

“With ShopRite performing extremely well at this location and attributing to such a large portion of the income, Mill Pond Village is a stable investment,” Behr added. “We saw a great amount of competition for this asset and we are pleased to have the opportunity to work with both buyer and seller as they worked diligently to complete the transaction.”
