A swim school has leased 8,100 square feet at a Livingston shopping center, its owner said.
Eastman Cos., owner of The Fresh Market Shoppes at the Livingston Circle, announced this week that the Goldfish Swim School is the newest tenant at the 93,000-square-foot complex. The deal at 277 Eisenhower Pkwy. marks the continued expansion of the swim lesson franchise.
Florian Suserman of Ripco Real Estate negotiated the deal on behalf of Eastman Cos., according to a news release. Charles Ritschel of Newmark Real Estate represented the tenant.
“This lease signing illustrates the growing trend of non-traditional tenants seeking space at successful retail properties,” Peter Schofel, Eastman’s managing partner, said in a prepared statement. “The Fresh Market Shoppes at the Livingston Circle’s visibility, co-tenancy and accessible parking proved to be a winning combination for this franchise owner.
“We are confident that Goldfish Swim School will be a tremendous asset to both the center and the local community.”
Goldfish Swim School provides year-round swim lessons for children ages four months through 12 years, as well as family swim time, private use of the facility for birthday parties and the opportunity for youths to join a recreational swim team, the news release said. The state-of-the-art Livingston facility will have a 78-foot pool and a windowed viewing gallery where parents can relax, work and watch their children swim.
“We searched for nine months to find the right location,” said Larisa Posner, general manager of the business. “The Fresh Market Shoppes at the Livingston Circle is a beautiful shopping center with an ideal combination of location, accessibility, signage and most importantly, ample parking. We look forward to bringing the Goldfish Swim School experience to residents of Livingston and the surrounding communities.”
