URHAM, NC AND LINCOLN PARK, MI — Nassimi Re- alty announced the purchase of two shopping centers total- ing in excess of 410,000 s/f combined: Durham Plaza in NC and Lincoln Park Plaza in MI. Durham Plaza is a 235,000 s/f regional shopping center in Durham, NC located just off Interstate 85/US-70 (75,000 VPD) at the Avondale Dr. junction (17,000 VPD). The center is over 90% occupied by a diverse mix of national and regional tenants including Big Lots, Kimbrell’s Furni- ture, Compare Foods, Har- bor Freight Tools, Surplus Warehouse, along with local retailers catering to the com- munity. The Durham Area Transit Authority (DATA) bus line drops off and picks up at the D ALEXANDRIA, VA — Rubenstein Partners, L.P. (including its affiliates, Ru- benstein) announced the acquisition of 2461 Eisen- hower Ave., a mixed-use office and retail property totaling 360,000 s/f and 2425 Eisenhower Ave., a retail development pad that can accommodate 7,500 s/f. The properties are located across the street from the National

complimented by other na- tional tenants such as Dollar Tree, Check and Go, H&R Block and Hallmark Cards. The center has strong neigh- borhood demographics and strong traffic counts (34,000 VPD) which make it a steady and prosperous plaza. Additionally, the close prox- imity of Ford Motor Com- pany’s headquarters and other auto manufacturers are contributing to the city of Lincoln Park by providing a dense residential population and a strong customer base for commercial retailers. All of the surrounding homes make this plaza a “go to” spot as a neighborhood retailer. Nassimi Realty’s president, Mike Nassimi , said: “We are delighted to expand our portfolio with the acquisition of these two stable and suc- cessful centers.” n transaction was very attrac- tive to Rubenstein, as the in- vestment enables the team to implement its broad vertically integrated capabilities to con- struct, lease and otherwise reposition a large mixed-use project across from a Metro Station in a rapidly growing submarket experiencing supe- rior office, retail and residential demand. The Hoffman Family, the seller of the properties, se- lected Rubenstein based on the firm's ability to execute on the complicated transaction on an "all-cash" basis. "This was a complicated transaction that took time to ripen and come to fruition, but in the end, it is a transaction that we believe made sense for all parties involved," said Steve Evans , regional director of the Washington, DC market for Rubenstein. "We're excited to announce the closing and begin the implementation of our plan to complete the office and enhance the retail into a first class project with walkable amenities by a Metro." n
