Cronheim Secures $17.5M Life Insurance Company Financing for NJ Grocery-Anchored Retail

285,638 square feet in Mercer & Union County

Cronheim Mortgage has arranged $17.5M for the financing of two grocery-anchored shopping centers: Town Center in East Windsor, NJ and Garwood Mall in Garwood, NJ. Andrew Stewart, Dev Morris, and Allison Villamagna secured the financing on behalf of a New Jersey-based real estate firm specializing in the development and acquisition of New Jersey retail assets.

For the Town Center Plaza, Cronheim secured $11M of long-term financing from Southern Farm Bureau Life Insurance Co, an insurance company and commercial real estate lender whom Cronheim represents as servicer and correspondent. The loan was structured on a 15/30 basis and features a stepdown prepayment structure in the last 10 years of the loan.

Constructed in 1998, the Town Center Plaza has since amassed an attractive tenant base including ShopRite, a regional movie theater, and Chipotle, among others. The 196,014 square foot property sits on a 35.51-acre lot, and features ample parking with over 1,250 spaces.

Town Center Plaza is located in East Windsor, an upper-middle-class suburb in central New Jersey. The property benefits from the strong demographics of its host market, with upwards of 16,000 households located within its 3-mile trade area and an average annual household income exceeding $155,000. Within East Windsor, the property is located near the intersection of U.S. Route 130 and New Jersey Route 133, also known as the Hightstown Bypass. These roadways see traffic volumes of 29,000+ and 20,000+ each day, respectively, providing the tenants of the property excellent visibility and consumers in the market exceptionally easy access.

For the Garwood Mall, Cronheim secured $6.5M of debt financing from American United Life (AUL), a life insurance company whom Cronheim represents as correspondent and servicer. The loan was structured on a 10/25 basis and features a flexible prepayment structure.

Constructed in 1971, the 89,624 square foot Garwood Mall is anchored by Kings Food Markets, and also features Crunch Fitness, AutoZone, and a variety of popular local merchants. Garwood, NJ is a small community with a walkable downtown featuring a myriad of shopping and dining, as well as the Garwood Train Station which is located just behind the property. With remarkably close proximity to this key piece of commuting infrastructure, the Garwood Mall will remain an attractive and highly desirable real estate location for years to come.
