Eastman Cos. Refinances 95,809 SF Retail Center in Livingston, New Jersey
LIVINGSTON, N.J. — Locally based development and management firm Eastman Cos. has refinanced The Shoppes at Livingston Circle, a 95,809-square-foot retail center in Livingston, an eastern suburb of Newark. Built in 1993 and anchored by German discount grocer Aldi, the property was 80 percent leased at the time of sale to tenants such as Olive Garden, Goldfish Swim and Club Pilates. Jon Mikula and Jim Cadranell of HFF placed the loan, which features a 12-year term and a fixed interest rate, on behalf of Eastman. The lender was not disclosed. There are more than 150,000 residents earning an average annual household income in excess of $190,000 living within a five-mile radius of the center, which has been extensively redeveloped over the past two years.
