Winick Realty Group Markets Rare Toms River Center Availabilities on Behalf of Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp.

tyler-bennett-profile-001Winick Realty Group Senior Vice President Tyler Bennett has been named the exclusive broker for two rare retail availabilities at Toms River Plaza, one of the most successful regional shopping centers in Ocean County, New Jersey.

Bennett received the prestigious assignment from Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp. He is marketing two vacant storefronts, offering a rare opportunity to join such cotenants as Kohl’s Department Stores, Super Foodtown, Modell’s, Five Below and Carter’s. The 3,000-square-foot availability, a former pizzeria, is restaurant ready and Bennett is seeking to fill the site with a fast casual food tenant, among others. The other measures 6,900 square feet and for this site, Bennett is seeking a merchandise or apparel user. Two large prominent pylon signs are available with these retail stores. Both can be seen from the Garden State Parkway, offering additional and invaluable visibility.

“Though the Toms River market has seen many changes through time and new developments, there is nothing that can replace the Toms River Center,” said Bennett. “The Center has withstood the test of time and has always had a strong tenancy with a high occupancy rate. This is arguably the best shopping center in the market and I am honored to represent the two available storefronts on behalf of Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp.”

Anchored by Super Foodtown and Kohl’s, the 251,000-square-foot Toms River Center is positioned off of exit 82A of the Garden State Parkway with visibility not only from that main thoroughfare but also Main Street and Route 37, the main east-west corridor through Toms River, which is home to the only regional mall in all of Ocean County. Toms River has a strong daytime population thanks to the courthouse and many office buildings, which are located immediately south on Main Street. More than 78,399 cars pass through the trade area each day, including more than 55,000 vehicles on Route 37 and 23,000 cars on Main Street.

Expanding to New Jersey and Long Island–Winick Realty Group

dan, tyler, noelThirty years after Winick Realty Group became the second real estate brokerage ever to focus specifically on retail, the firm is going through a growth spurt. Setting its sights on Long Island in the east and New Jersey in the west, Winick Realty Group has brought on a team of highly-qualified executives to solidify its position as a best-in-class brokerage not just in New York City but in the entire Metropolitan Area.

While not Winick Realty Group’s first foray into the retail markets of Northern New Jersey, the November 2012 launch of Winick Realty Group NJ gave the company physical roots on the other side of the Hudson River.

Founding partners Daniel Spector and Tyler Bennett, both Senior Vice Presidents, immediately began building a brand that leveraged both their decades of experience and the unmatched knowledge and infrastructure that already existed at Winick Realty Group’s Midtown Manhattan headquarters.

“Because of our intimate past relationships with Winick Realty Group, Jeff Winick, Steven E. Baker and the entire executive team, we plan on having strong synergy between the two offices. We are able to fully integrate our services not only for landlords and tenants, but also investors and developers, in both the New York and New Jersey markets,” said Spector, a 25-year industry veteran who had previously worked at Winick Realty Group for six years as its New Jersey Manager in the 1990s.

Hovnanian Taps Winick for Jersey Retail

Winick Realty Group NJ senior vice president and founding partner Tyler Bennett announced that the company has been appointed the exclusive broker for three retail properties on behalf of H. Hovnanian Industries.

Bennett is representing 470,000 s/f on behalf of the landlord, which includes 420,000 s/f of retail at Bellcrest Plaza and Manchester Plaza and approximately 50,000 s/f of proposed space at the new St. Catherine Plaza.

“We are thrilled to be representing so many of New Jersey’s highest-performing retail sites on behalf of one of the area’s top landlords,” said Bennett, who is marketing the spaces with his associate Gary Krauss.

“We look forward to the opportunity to enhance these shopping centers with high-quality tenants who will serve the unique needs of each area’s shopping population.”

Bennett is exclusively marketing various retail spaces in an effort to reposition The New Bellcrest Plaza, a 106,000 s/f neighborhood center in Toms River, NJ.

Rounding out the Hov portfolio is the new St. Catherine Plaza, in Toms River, NJ. Bennett is currently pre-leasing the center, which sits at the entrance of Holiday City, a retirement community of more than 8,500 homes and 12,000 residents.

Hovnanian Industries. Bennett is representing approximately 470,000 square feet on behalf of the landlord, which includes 420,000 square feet of retail at Bellcrest Plaza and Manchester Plaza and approximately 50,000 square feet of proposed space at the new St. Catherine Plaza.

With new assignment, Winick’s fledgling New Jersey office representing 1 million SF of retail space

Three months after the launch of its first office in the Garden State, retail-dedicated brokerage Winick Realty’s New Jersey division has received an assignment to lease nearly 500,000 square feet of retail space in Ocean County, N.J., the listing broker told The Real Deal. The new assignment brings representation at the firm’s New Jersey outpost, which currently has three brokers, to a total of about 1 million square feet of space.

The assignments include 106,000 square feet at Bellcrest Plaza in Toms River, N.J., which the firm plans to reposition, Winick founding partner Tyler Bennett said. The mall is offering spaces from 1,000 square feet to a 40,000-square-foot space for an anchor tenant. The new Bellcrest will seek more nationally- and regionally-focused tenants in addition to “mom and pop” users, Bennett said.

The other assignments include a 307,000-square-foot shopping center in Manchester, N.J., and 50,000 square feet of retail at St. Catherine Plaza, a ground-up development in Toms River.

All three projects are owned by H. Hovnanian Industries, a New Jersey-based developer which bears no formal relation to national homebuilder Hovnanian Enterprises, Bennett said.

Winick’s expansion to the New Jersey market in November — its first beyond the five boroughs — is part of the brokerage’s larger effort to represent national tenants in multiple markets, Bennett said. Winick now exclusively represents national brands such as Chipotle Mexican Grill, Wendy’s and Safeguard Self-Storage in both the New Jersey and New York City metropolitan markets, a representative for the company confirmed.

With this approach, “we are able to expand [and] become more of a regional player,” Bennett said.

Bennett said the New Jersey office is growing faster than he expected, and expects to add three additional brokers in the next three months.
