West Chester, Pa. — Retail real estate services firm Levin Management has been named leasing and managing agent for Bradford Plaza, a 161,000-square-foot, grocery-anchored shopping center in West Chester, Pa.
Anchored by Giant Foods, the leading grocer in Chester County, Bradford Plaza is home to national tenants such as Petco, Dollar Tree and Walgreens, and a mix of local retailers.
"West Chester is an affluent Philadelphia suburb with strong demographics," says Levin's Robert Carson, CSM, executive vice president. "Bradford Plaza is a well-maintained, well-positioned retail destination. The management transition provides an opportunity to execute a strategic management and leasing program that will draw key tenants and increase the center's occupancy."
The assignment expands Levin's foothold in the greater Philadelphia market. Its other regional leasing and management assignments include ShopRite-anchored Morrell Plaza in Northeast Philadelphia; and The Shops at Blue Bell in Blue Bell, also anchored by Giant Foods.
"The Philadelphia market is a great place to be, and we are pleased to grow our regional presence," says Joseph Lowry, Levin's director of acquisitions and business development.
Lowry added that Levin was also selected for its institutional-level management capabilities, which focus on maximizing asset value through operational efficiency, strong curb appeal and the ideal tenant mix. The firm's clients include individual owners, lenders, estates and trusts, as well as numerous institutional owners and fund managers.
As a landlord-focused retail real estate services provider, Levin is widely recognized as one of America's leading firms in its niche. The North Plainfield, N.J., company offers the full range of services needed to successfully operate any retail venue, including leasing, property management, accounting, construction management and marketing.
