The Waterfront at Port Chester, a 358,619 SF shopping center in the heart of downtown Port Chester anchored by Costco, Lowes, Stop and Shop and Michaels.
The shopping center was somewhat stigmatized in the Village as a large center that did not significantly add to the community. Numerous retailers including DSW and Chase shuddered their locations. The Center had 6 units of vacancy totaling 29,154 RSF. Many of the spaces had been vacant for over four years.
RM Friedland put together a clever marketing package targeting local, regional and national firms with an emphasis on experiential. Each team member was tireless in their canvassing efforts. After only a few months of marketing the team signed leases with four tenants totaling 22,500 square feet. The unique tenants included the Greenwich Ballet Company, mSquash and Bona Bona ice cream.
“Working with RMF has brought an incredible amount of energy and buzz to the retail center that is was lacking. The new tenants RMF successfully attracted are new to the Village and have been wonderful additions. I highly recommend RMF because they have an ability to both understand the owners wants and needs, the neighborhood dynamics, and tenants that are in the market…very few companies do even one of those things right, RMF brings the total package.” – Steve K.
