A shopping center that is under construction in Morris County has added a global shoe retailer to its roster, according to developer Key Properties LLC.
In a news release, the firm said Famous Footwear has leased about 7,000 square feet at the Hanover Crossroads in Cedar Knolls. The company joins a lineup of existing and planned tenants at the 107,000-square-foot shopping center at 110 East Hanover Ave., including AutoZone, QuickChek, T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods.
Jerry Welkis of Welco Realty Inc., exclusive leasing agent for Hanover Crossroads, arranged the long-term lease, the news release said. David Dunkelman of Soloff Retail represented the tenant.
“Momentum continues to build at Hanover Crossroads,” said David Schlussel, co-managing partner of Key Properties. “Famous Footwear complements the property’s carefully curated tenant mix. This new store surely will be a welcome addition to the local retail community.”
AutoZone, QuickChek and MedExpress Urgent Care recently opened for business at Hanover Crossroads, while construction is nearing completion with summer openings anticipated for new T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods, Five Below and ULTA Beauty stores.
With more than 1,000 stores nationwide, Famous Footwear sells athletic and casual name-brand shoes. Its newest location will sit at the signalized intersection of East Hanover and Ridgedale avenues, just one mile from a four-way interchange of Interstate 287.
“Hanover Crossroads’ strong demographics and visibility attracted Famous Footwear,” Welkis said. “The presence of a strong co-tenancy also provided a significant draw.”
