Commitment Brings Levin-Managed Shopping Center to Full Occupancy
CHATHAM, N.J., Oct. 13, 2020 – Blue Foundry Bank will open a new location at Chatham Plaza, bringing the 31,500-square-foot Morris County shopping center to 100% occupancy, announced Levin Management Corporation (LMC). The commercial real estate services firm exclusively leases and manages the property, located on Main Street in Chatham.
LMC Senior Leasing Representative Vanessa Fernandez-Kelty and Leasing Representative Kendal Hand-Freda arranged the 2,100-square-foot lease.
“As a New Jersey-based financial institution, Blue Foundry Bank is deeply invested in the communities it serves, making it a welcome addition for both this property and the borough,” said Fernandez-Kelty. “Chatham Plaza has earned its position as a key local shopping destination, as evidenced by the quality of its tenants and, now, its full occupancy.”
Anchored by a 14,200-square-foot CVS Pharmacy, Chatham Plaza’s tenant mix also includes a C2 Education tutoring center and JAG Physical Therapy, along with typical neighborhood conveniences such as Noah’s Bagels, Villa Pizza, Green Nails salon and a dry cleaner. Located near Chatham’s thriving downtown, Chatham Plaza serves a growing residential population of nearly 67,000 people within a three-mile radius, with an average household income of $245,000 within those same three miles.
