Tropical Supermarket Expands Garden State Presence at Clinton Corners
Tropical Supermarket is coming to Clinton Corners in South Plainfield, announced Levin Management Corporation (LMC). The grocer, which has a Hispanic flair and an established presence in New Jersey, will take over space at Clinton Corners that formerly housed a Bravo supermarket – maintaining the property’s full occupancy.
LMC serves as exclusive leasing and managing agent for Clinton Corners, a popular neighborhood retail center. Senior Leasing Representative Vanessa Fernandez-Kelty arranged the 15,800-square-foot lease. The transaction highlights LMC’s long history as a grocery-anchored retail specialist and represents its second with Tropical Supermarket, which has operated at the LMC leased and managed Hamilton Street Center in Franklin Township for 12 years.
“As an essential retail category and one that has proven to be Internet-resistant, grocery is a significant element for any shopping center,” said Fernandez-Kelty. “The South Plainfield community has long benefited from the convenience of a supermarket anchor at Clinton Corners, and it is welcome news – both for local residents and the center’s in-place tenants – that Tropical Supermarket has chosen to locate here.”
Located at 1225 West 7th Street, less than three miles from heavily traveled Route 22, Clinton Corners is home to a Burger King and T&J Fish Market, along with a mix of local favorites including a Chinese restaurant, beauty supply store, pharmacy, nail salon and laundromat. The 30,300-square-foot center serves a growing residential population of more than 136,000 people with an average household income of $101,000 within a three-mile radius.
