ORTH BETHESDA, MD — Federal Real- ty Investment Trust recently announced that its 24- acre mixed-use development in North Bethesda, Pike & Rose, has achieved LEED for Neigh- borhood Development (LEED ND) v2009 Stage 3 Gold certi- fication under the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED rating system. LEED ND was engineered to inspire and help create better, more sustain- able, well-connected neighbor- hoods. The certification looks beyond the scale of buildings to consider entire communities. Pike &Rose is the only LEED ND Stage 3 certified project owned and developed by a U.S. REIT and one of only 10 LEED ND Stage 3-certified projects in the U.S. as well as only 18 worldwide. Pike &Rose is a transit-oriented develop- ment located 6 miles north of Washington, D.C. The project comprises 379,000 s/f of retail, 765 apartment units, 99 con- dos atop a 177-key hotel, and 80,000 s/f class A office building with an additional 212,000 s/f of office under development.

Further evidence of Federal Realty's commitment to sus- tainability initiatives include: Federal Realty completed its annual sustainability re- porting through the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) and was awarded a Green Star recog- nition with 4 out of 5 stars. The Trust ranked first among its peers in the Health and Wellness category. In addi- tion, Federal Realty reduced energy consumption by 11.4% year-over-year which is enough energy to power 643 homes for a year. The Trust also reduced water consumption by 3% year- over-year which equates to 7.7 million gallons of water. Federal Realty was recog- nized as a Green Lease Leader Gold by the Institute for Market Transformation and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Better Buildings Alliance for high-performance leasing prac- tices which drive shared energy savings and sustainability ben- efits in buildings. 

INSTON-SALEM, NC — The Bedrin Organization con- 82,617 s/f center closes for $7 million New Jersey's Bedrin Organization adds to its real estate portfolio in Piedmont Triad W

“This new strategic partner- ship with Bedrin is significant because it will open up capital for Bedrin and allow us to target opportunities in the greater Piedmont Triad area,” said Karim Demirdache , who leads KVRC’s invest- ment team. “Collectively, the partnership will now have the ability to underwrite both debt and equity deals including turnarounds and repositioning opportunities and we want to hear from brokers and prop- erty owners who are interested in doing business with us.” Club Haven is anchored by an Ollie’s Bargain Out- let and includes Tru Tae- kwando, A Cleaner World, Burn Bootcamp, China Wok, Kiro Restaurant, Dancer’s Edge, Ten Little Monkeys, Edward Jones, 2Fierce Dance- wear, Champney, TJ’s Deli, TJ’s Deli, TJ’s Ice Cream, C.Cravens & Co., Harmony Day Spa, and Play It Again Sports. In addition, T.J.’s is planning to expand into a va- cant space next door. 

tinues to invest in the Pied- mont Triad, with the purchase of Club Haven, a retail and service center at the inter- section of Country Club and Peace Haven roads, from Club Haven Investments Co. LLC, which is controlled by Hal Mc- Coy of Pinehurst-based HBM Management . The sale of the 82,617 s/f center closed Thursday, Jan. 10. The property, which sold for $7 million, has 21 retail spaces and two vacancies. Berkeley Capital was the selling broker, the leasing broker is Meridian Realty , with property management by Meridian and the Bedrin Organization . The purchase brings to ten the number of properties that the Glen Rock,NJ-based and family owned commercial real estate company has acquired in the Piedmont Triad. As with the purchases of Gate City Shopping Center last June and PARAMUS, NJ — Cush- man & Wakefield arranged the December sale of Paramus Junction, a fully leased, gro- cery-anchored shopping center in the heart of New Jersey’s iconic Bergen County retail corridor. Deka Immobilien GmBH, advised by Madison Marquette , purchased the 75,000 s/f asset from a joint venture of Invesco Real Estate , a global real estate investment manager, and Advance Realty . Cushman & Wakefield’s New Jersey capital markets team represented the seller and procured the buyer, led by investment sales specialists Andrew Merin, David Ber- nhaut, Gary Gabriel, Brian Whitmer and Kubby Tischler. Paramus Junction is fully occupied by the Asian grocer H Mart, DSW and PetSmart. It is shadow anchored by a BJ’s Wholesale Club. Located at 60 North Route 17 in Paramus,

Hunt Village at Sedgefield last August, both of which are in Greensboro near residential areas and adjacent to high traffic corridors, the appeal of Club Haven is in its location. Garret Bedrin , who over- sees acquisitions, leasing and investor relations for his fam- ily’s company, said that Club Haven benefits by its prox- imity to Brookberry Farms, high traffic counts on Country

Club Road and its tenant mix, which offers consumers a va- riety of goods and services in one destination. “This acquisition is a further sign of our commitment to the Piedmont Triad community,” said Bedrin. “We plan to con- tinue searching out properties inWinston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point and the sur- rounding areas that represent solid investments for our com-

pany, while at the same time, providing places for local busi- nesses to thrive and grow.” The purchase marks the first time that the Bedrin Organization has partnered for investment purposes with Kohlberg Ventures Re- alty Capital LLC (KVRC) , a New York-based privately held real estate investment management company with discretionary capital.

the center sits near the heavily traveled crossroads of routes 4 and 17, directly across from the Garden State Plaza – one of the country’s top perform- ing malls. “This property offers an ideal e-commerce resistant tenant mix in an irreplace- able location,” Whitmer said. “Paramus is the region’s best- performing retail submarket,

housing five regional malls and a ‘who’s who’ of national brands. Paramus Junction has a history of consistently remaining fully occupied since its completion in 1992, making it a prime investment target.” Gabriel noted that the Para- mus Junction offering drew significant attention. “With in- frequent institutional-quality transactions in this highly

sought after retail submarket, we saw interest from a large and diverse pool of buyers, in- cluding institutional, private, and international players,” he noted. “The center is a great example of a successful repo- sitioning by the seller, in turn making it the right fit for the investment profile of the buy- er. Both parties understand- ing the merits of the incredible

location and tenancy.” Peter Jun , Madison Mar- quette’s senior managing di- rector and head of global in- vestments, also commented, “We are delighted to have worked with Deka on this transaction, as we continue to seek more well-performing and strategically located prop- erties together as strategic partners.” 

S hopping C enters By Brandon Anapol, Metro Commercial How retailers can overcome restrictive covenants in shopping centers: Part 1

retail apoca- l y p s e i s a myth, there i s , in fac t , an evolution taking place. This evolu- tion extends beyond the headlines and W

e all know that the retail landscape is changing. While the

enants, are now finding them- selves located next to empty boxes but are often hesitant to grant waivers. Meanwhile, landlords, who are typically caught in the middle, are find- ing their bottom line taking a hit as their boxes remain va- cant while their largest tenants hold out. While the situation may seem complex, there is one way for prospective retail- ers to simplify it…demonstrate what’s in it for them. All roads lead back to, “What’s in it for me?” While it may seem that land- lords have the most to lose, the truth is, all parties will miss out on mutually beneficial opportunities. So, what is the solution? Surprisingly, it’s you, the prospective tenant, and your leasing representative who may be the key to getting the deal done. You know something that the other two parties don’t--what not having you as a tenant in their center may cost them. While you may not have exact revenue numbers, if the center’s target demographics align with yours, it’s likely a match and there will be op- portunities for cross-shopping, traffic growth, and greater stability. Don’t let your perfect site and growth opportunity be blocked. Make sure your leasing broker is taking the following proactive measures to secure your space. Educate the landlord on what you bring to the table ● Create a customer profile ─ Develop a detailed profile of your customers. Are your

customers soccer moms with an average of two kids or are they affluent professionals spending $180 a month in boutique fit- ness services? ─ Demonstrate how your customers are a match and can benefit the center and its anchor tenants. ● Dive into traffic numbers ─ Show how the incremen- tal traffic you will bring to the center could be a boost for them by providing projected numbers, flow, and patterns. For example, fitness centers should be sure to specify that their peak hours of operation don’t typically conflict with the busiest times for prototypi- cal retailers. In fact, in many cases, they bring off-peak, incremental traffic. ● Spell-out the opportunity ─ Identify potential for cross- shopping, incremental traffic, and revenue. While the oppor- tunity may be clear for you, it’s essential to show the landlord, the center, and the existing tenants the potential benefits -- what’s in it for them. ─ Demonstrate how your presence will benefit their bot- tom line, growth prospects, and stability. New challenges will continue to rise for retailers, but main- taining a physical presence is still key to thriving in today’s market. Check back in the February 22 issue for more on how you can help conquer restrictive covenants at shop- ping centers.

is having a real impact on the ground. Multi-tenant property owners, national operators, and emerging non-traditional businesses are facing new challenges in their day-to-day operations. Big-box retailers are closing, leaving empty spaces behind. New consumer trends are taking shape, catching many off-guard. Live-work-play is a popular trend among con- sumers and spaces are shape- shifting to meet that demand. New non-traditional operators with high growth potential are emerging but are facing challenges in securing space within shopping centers. One of the biggest challenges many landlords are facing is the restrictive covenants present in retail centers that exclude “non-traditional” tenants such as fitness and family entertain- ment centers. These covenants are now restricting opportuni- ties for emerging non-tradition- al operators to occupy ”big-box” space left vacant by anchor and junior anchor retailers. This presents roadblocks in their quest to secure the right space. Many national opera- tors, accustomed to these cov-
