Levin Named Exclusive Managing Agent for Westbrook Outlets in Westbrook, Conn.

Assignment Incorporates Firm’s Consumer Engagement Marketing Services

WESTBROOK, Conn., May 25, 2017 – Commercial real estate services firm Levin Management Corporation (LMC) has been retained as exclusive managing agent for Westbrook Outlets, an open-air outlet mall in Westbrook. Under new ownership and recently renamed, the 290,000-square-foot property will be undergoing a significant rebranding; the assignment incorporates LMC’s consumer engagement marketing services.

“Westbrook Outlets is an exciting addition to our management portfolio,” said LMC’s Robert Carson, executive vice president. “This assignment is particularly rewarding because it is our first project with a new client. Westbrook Outlets is a strong property in a desirable submarket with excellent visibility and accessibility. Our efforts here initially will focus on upholding the high-quality shopping environment that customers have come to expect, while continuing to maintain strong tenant relations.”

Located at 314 Flat Rock Place at Exit 65 of I-95, Westbrook Outlets features dozens of brand-name, family-oriented outlet stores spanning a range of categories including accessories and jewelry; men’s, women’s and children’s apparel; footwear; housewares and home furnishings; and specialty retail. H&M recently signed a lease to join the tenant lineup. Existing, high-profile retailers at the property include Bass Factory Outlet, J. Crew/Crewcuts, Hollister, Justice, Loft Outlet and Williams-Sonoma Outlet, among many others. The open-air mall also includes a hair salon and a 12-screen Marquee Cinemas.

“This property houses a great tenant mix, and we look forward to helping our client reintroduce it to the marketplace,” noted Melissa Sievwright, LMC’s vice president of marketing. “Our consumer engagement programs are designed to ensure that properties are highly visible and their benefits are communicated effectively.” LMC incorporates a variety of tools including comprehensive property websites, social media campaigns and enhanced public relations efforts.

LMC maintains a diversified, retail-focused portfolio of approximately 95 properties totaling 13 million square feet in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. The company was awarded several new assignments over the past year, most recently including shopping centers in New Jersey’s Delran, Freehold and Hackettstown. LMC also was retained to continue its role following ownership changes at properties in Flemington, N.J. and Pottsville, Pa.

For 65 years, LMC has been a trusted single-source commercial real estate services provider for institutional and private owners. The firm helps its clients evaluate options, operate properties and create case-specific solutions to protect and improve asset value. LMC offers leasing, property management, financial management and reporting, construction and development, lease administration, marketing services, and acquisition and disposition consulting services.
