New York City -- Centro Properties Group US announced it has officially changed its name to Brixmor Property Group, Inc., effective immediately.
The name change follows the acquisition of the company in June by an affiliate of Blackstone Real Estate Partners VI L.P.
Brixmor is the second largest owner of community and neighborhood shopping centers in the United States with 585 properties aggregating approximately 92 million sq. ft.
“Today, we are a well-capitalized organization committed to supporting the growth strategies of our retailers by offering the best locations in well-anchored, highly productive shopping centers,” said Michael Carroll, CEO.
He added, “By fully re-engaging our redevelopment program, we are able to provide the flexibility required by our grocery, national and regional anchor tenants as they continue to progress their store prototypes.”
Brixmor also unveiled a new logo and a re-branded website of brixmor.com. Additional branding initiatives, including property signage and new leasing and marketing materials, will be implemented over the next several months. The company’s subsidiaries Centro NP LLC and Centro NP Residual Holding LLC will be changing their names to Brixmor LLC and Brixmor Residual Holding LLC, respectively.
