Five tenants have signed leases at a Middlesex County shopping center, combining for more than 52,000 square feet, in a series of newly announced transactions by The Goldstein Group.
In the largest among them, Aldi committed to 21,500 square feet at Heritage Square at 4180 Route 1, in the Monmouth Junction section of South Brunswick. The space is among more than 1,900 stores in 36 states for the family-owned, Germany-based supermarket chain, which also owns Trader Joe’s.
The Goldstein Group Executive Vice President Lew Finkelstein and Vice President CJ Huter represented Wasa Properties, the landlord at the 80,000-square-foot center. Brian Wherty of Equity Properties represented the tenant.
Finkelstein and Huter also represented ownership in deals with Harbor Freight Tools, the privately held discount tool and equipment retailer, which is taking 20,000 square feet. The Goldstein Group Director Marc Palestina and Sales Associate Roy Paret assisted in the deal, while Newmark’s Marcus Bourn and Andrew Connolly represented the tenant.
Additionally, the trio of Finkelstein, Huter and Paret represented both parties at Heritage Square in an 8,600-square-foot lease with Jersey Fine Wines. They also represented ownership in a 1,200-square-foot lease with UPS and a 900-square-foot deal with Rita’s Ice, with Matt Grundy of Ripco and Rocco Fiorentino of Keyser Co. representing the respective tenants.
The tenants at Heritage Square join operators such as Bob’s Discount Furniture, Dunkin Donuts, Supercuts, Subway and Chase Bank, while Target and ShopRite operate nearby.
