Firm Expands Garden State Portfolio with Chester Springs in Chester
CHESTER, N.J., Sept. 10, 2019 – Levin Management Corporation (LMC) of North Plainfield, N.J. has added another quality Garden State assignment to its retail portfolio. The commercial real estate services firm has been named exclusive managing agent for Chester Springs, an approximately 226,000-square-foot, grocery-anchored shopping center in Chester.
Anchored by a 62,000-square-foot ShopRite supermarket, the center’s co-tenancy includes CVS Pharmacy, Marshalls, Panera Bread and independently owned/operated gym NitroFlex. Chester Springs soon will welcome off-price home decor and furniture brand HomeGoods to its lineup, which also features a complementary mix of retailers, restaurants and service providers.

As managing agent, we look forward to further maximizing the property’s curb appeal and ensuring an attractive, well-maintained shopping experience for both tenants and consumers.”
