In our acquisitions program, we focus on expanding our retail portfolio in markets where we currently have product as well as contiguous areas. Deals may be structured in a variety of ways to meet sellers’ needs, including tax-deferred transactions.
We look for well-anchored neighborhood and community centers in major metropolitan areas with strong population growth and high barriers to entry. These properties can be core supermarket anchored, value added opportunities, or power centers. There is a preference for properties where we can add value through lease-up, remerchandising, and renovation. Strategic locations are required and supermarket and/or discount anchored centers are preferred.
