Hamilton, N.J. Retail real estate services firm Levin Management Corp. is launching a major renovation at Hamilton Plaza Shopping Center in conjunction with the expansion of the property’s long-time anchor tenant, ShopRite.
The project will reconfigure, expand and update the 184,272-sq.-ft. retail property.
At the heart of the plan, a portion of the front section of the current building will be removed, and additional square footage will be added to the rear, allowing the expanded ShopRite to reach nearly 86,000 sq. ft.
ShopRite will emerge in the new space and will also have additional parking in front of it as a result of the partial demolition. The store will remain open during the expansion.
The plan by Levin Management, which serves as the exclusive retail leasing and managing agent for Hamilton Plaza, includes installing prominent new pylon signage and a modern building facade, reconfiguring the parking lot, and redesigning and adding to the center’s landscaping.
In addition to ShopRite, Hamilton Plaza serves as home to A.C. Moore, Fashion Bug, Dollar Tree, Gold Crown Hallmark, Vito’s Pizza, and Hair Cuttery.
“All of our existing stores have indicated that they want to remain in place, which testifies to this property’s appeal,” said Matthew K. Harding, Levin’s president and COO. “We also will be working to enhance Hamilton Plaza’s tenant mix by marketing newly created space opportunities to local, regional and national retailers.”
