Essex Mall Sells for $47 Million

CBRE has announced the $47 million sale of Essex Mall, a 189,773-square-foot grocery-anchored shopping center in West Caldwell. The CBRE represented the owner, a joint venture between Stop & Shop and Goodrich Management, while also procuring the buyer, Milbrook Properties, which acquired the center as part of a 1031 exchange.

Essex Mall is a 97% leased center anchored by Stop & Shop and Marshalls with excellent frontage and access from Bloomfield Avenue (28,491± cars/day). Additional tenants at the center include PNC Bank, Compassion First, a newly built-out 24/7 pet hospital, Twisterz, and a diverse mix of restaurants and other service-oriented tenants. The property has a history of long-term tenancy, including Stop & Shop, Marshalls and several of the inline tenants. Essex Mall is situated in an infill, high demographic market highlighted by a population of 172,000 within 5 miles and average household incomes over $175,000.

CBRE’s Jeff Dunne said, “The offering represented a unique opportunity to purchase a grocery-anchored center offering highly stable income and no near-term rollover in Northern New Jersey.”

CBRE’s David Gavin added, “We continue to see strong demand for retail centers like Essex Mall, which provide long-term cash flow and a highly attractive rent roll.”
