new anchor: 25,067 s/f Jersey Strong. “To optimize the loca- tion for this statewide fitness chain, we worked with the landlord to reconfigure and combine several narrow, deep, less functional spaces with a former dollar store that served as the centerpiece for the new gym,” Miller said. Those moves included the relocation of Sun Lok Gardens to another space in the center. In addition, R.J. Brunelli helped winmunicipal approval for the construction of a 3,500 s/f mezzanine within the gym to further improve the loca- tion for Jersey Strong, Miller noted. A popular fitness center in New Jersey for 30 years, Jersey Strong took interest in Dover Park Plaza after R.J. Brunelli pointed out that Yardville is a solid fit for the chain’s target demographics. Robert Kwiatkowski , R.J. Brunelli VP-tenant represen- tation, represented Jersey Strong in the firm’s capacity as exclusive tenant representa- tive for the chain throughout New Jersey. President and principal Danielle Brunelli served as listing agent on the transaction. 

After acquiring the 58,000 s/f shopping center in a tax- deferred 1031 exchange in 2018, new landlord Dover Park Plaza LLC hired the Old Bridge-based retail real es- tate brokerage to revamp the tenant mix at the decades-old property in Mercer County. At that time, the center, located at 1-23 Sunnybrea Blvd., was about 75% leased, said R.J. Brunelli sales associate Peter Miller , who spearheaded the leasing effort in his role as the property’s project manager. In addition to longstanding operators such as CVS Health, La Forchetta Italian pizzeria, Asian restaurant Sun Lok Gardens and several service- based businesses that have been at the property over 30 years, the mix now includes a

Kislak marketed the prop- erty on an exclusive basis with executive vice president Joni Sweetwood handling the assignment on behalf of a longtime client. Sweetwood also procured the purchaser, another long time and multi- generational client, only a few weeks after initially marketing the property. South Orange Square is an iconic property that sits at the corner of South Orange Avenue and Scotland Road/ Valley Road, the most visible and heavily-trafficked corner (AADT 21,031 cars) in South Orange.
