NEW YORK & MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trinity Place Holdings Inc. (NYSE: TPHS) (the “Company”) announced today that it has executed a long-term lease with a State of Florida government agency for a new facility to be located at the Shoppes at Forest Hill Neighborhood Shopping Center in Palm Beach County, Florida. Anchored by Walmart Marketplace, the 112,000 square foot center is located at the busy intersection of Forest Hill Boulevard and South Military Trail. The lease brings the revitalized center to nearly 80% leased and new leasing prospects are actively discussing occupying remaining vacancies.
The Company won a competitive RFP for the 8,045 square foot facility with the new lease having been executed on February 13. The lease will span an initial 10-year period with an option to renew for up to a total of twenty years. The Company will build out the space and the agency will occupy upon completion.
The State of Florida joins other well-known national tenants at the Shoppes at Forest Hill such as Walmart Neighborhood Market, Tire Kingdom, Rent-A-Center, Supercuts, Boston Market, Taco Bell, as well as several medical offices and dining establishments at the burgeoning center.
“Trinity is excited to welcome employees of the State of Florida to the Shoppes at Forest Hill,” said Matt Messinger, President & CEO of Trinity Place Holdings Inc. “We have worked hard to revitalize the shopping center, which was just over 25% occupied only a few years ago, by bringing in an exceptional investment grade anchor tenant in Walmart Marketplace and ensuring the needs of the community are met with top tier shopping, dining, recreation, and services. The State of Florida facility is a great complement to our existing lineup of tenants. We welcome their employees and visitors.”
Allan Carlisle and Remington Phillips of Cohen Commercial represented the Landlord on the transaction.
