C MBS Transitions brand of CMBS 1.0 created to put a new spit shine on an old pair of worn out shoes? Post the 2008-2009 financial crisis, in- vestors of CMBS bonds learned a few valuable lessons as CMBS loan defaults hit record levels and bondholders had to entrust special servicers to fairly ad- judicate losses and recoveries in CMBS loan pools. Not com- pletely satisfied with the pro- cess , many B-piece bondhold- ers were reluctant to re-invest in these loan pools. Investors buying CMBS after 2009 were looking for CMBS issuances to be more pristine with tighter underwriting standards and stronger risk alignment. CMBS 2.0 was announced. Extenders and Pretenders CMBS 2.0 underwriting stan- dards have certainly become more stringent over the last 5 to 7 years. Lenders have reduced LTV's, added more cash management agreements, originated fewer interest only loans and demanded more substantive escrows. In our opinion, however, the most impactful change in CMBS 2.0 targets the special servicers and the controlling class hold- ers. CMBS 2.0 has tightened the reins on the "extend and pretend" plays orchestrated by controlling class holders. CMBS 2.0 forces appraisal reductions/ASER's (Appraisal Was the CMBS 2.0 moniker simply a re-

Special Servicer and the controlling class holders could avoid taking a "real-time" appraisal reduction even on severely over leveraged as- sets ensuring that the special servicer and CCR stay in tact. The results, at times, were resolutions that were dictated by an "out of the money" spe- cial servicer or CCR. CMBS 2.0 takes a proactive approach to resolving the con- flict of interest issues created when a servicer goes from "into" to "out of" the money in a CMBS transaction.

"In the Money" In a typical CMBS transac- tion, the majority holder of the junior most bonds is desig- nated as the controlling class representative and as such appoints the special servicer for the underlying loan pool. This arrangement works well in the early stages of the REMIC investment where Property values are generally stable and market fluctuations are minimal. The controlling class representative is perceived by the investors to have "skin in the game" and interests are generally aligned in maximiz- ing trust asset recoveries. The CCR is "in the money" so to speak. "Out of the Money" CMBS mechanics do not always react quickly to a changing landscape such as the precipitous market decline and property devaluations ex- perienced after 2007-2008.

“We collaborated with owner- ship and property management to create a plan to update the property. The new owners have been aggressive in their approach and that is being noted by existing tenants and prospective tenants alike.” commented Kirczow.

The entire site consists of 114 acres. The sale was consummated on April 14, 2017. The announcement was made by Grossman Compa- C

mid- 2018. Other tenants that have already signed leases include Pet Valu, Chase Bank, AT&T and Go Health Urgent Care. The remainder of the Readers Digest property will ultimately include: 91 high- end town homes; 500,000 s/f of medical and office space anchored by Northern West- chester Hospital; 66 affordable housing units; and various public amenities including a walking trail and performance center. CBRE’s National Retail Partners represented Gross- man and Summit, and ar- ranged both the debt and equity capital that includes the construction loan of $44 million from M & T Bank and a 90% institutional joint venture equity partner for the $24 million equity require- ment. The grocery-anchored shopping center in tony, high- barriers-to- entry Westchester County was hotly pursued by both equity and debt capital. Jake Grossman and Felix Charney of Summit said, “Everyone involved in reach- ing this milestone has been schooled in the true meaning of the word ‘perseverance.’ The permitting process was complex, starting in 2005. The Town of Chappaqua has been a fantastic partner in bringing this dream to a reality. We are excited to break ground and look forward to deliver a shop- ping center with a top-notch tenant roster that will enliven the community.” In the last four years, The Grossman Companies and Summit Development have partnered in the acquisition of 9 commercial properties in Connecticut, consisting of some 600,000 s/f including re- tail, office and industrial prop- erties as well as land.

neighborhood’s desirability. “When we identified this location for our development, we recognized that creating a vibrant, multi-faceted prop- erty could improve this part of Newark in a tangible way,” said Richard Tucker , CEO of Tucker Development, a nation- al leader in the development of retail centers and mixed- use properties. “With Ashley Stewart opening its doors, sev- eral other shops coming within weeks, and our apartments at 24 Jones approaching full oc- cupancy, it’s very gratifying to see our vision for Springfield

Avenue Marketplace coming to fruition.” University Heights provides residents with convenient ac- cess to Penn Station, NJ Tran- sit and the New Jersey Turn- pike. Further bolstering the location’s connectivity is the bus stop on Springfield Avenue and Jones St., which services lines 1, 99, 25, and GO25, pro- viding seamless accessibility for shoppers and residents. “One of the reasons we love this location is its convenient access to Rutgers University Hospital, Rutgers’ Newark campus, NJIT, Seton Hall

and other educational institu- tions,” Tucker said. “It gives us great pride to see the mix of longtime Newark residents, students and newcomers to the city moving into 24 Jones and using the shopping center daily. University Heights’ proximity to major job centers makes the area very attractive to young professionals, and there’s little doubt that the area’s star is rising quickly.” Tucker’s sentiments are echoed by the retailers that have opened their doors at Springfield Avenue Market- place over the past 18 months.

In addition to ShopRite, the development is home to Sarku Japan, Taco Bell and McDon- ald’s. “Springfield Avenue Market- place has brought something very special to this area of Newark, and we’re excited to be a part of it,” stated David Lee, senior marketing manager for Sarku Japan. “Since open- ing in December, we’ve drawn a steady stream of customers including local residents, stu- dents and hospital workers, and we’re proud to be a part of this transformative environ- ment.” n

EWARK, NJ — Tuck- er Development’s vision for creating a

vibrant and diverse shopping destination in Newark’s Uni- versity Heights neighborhood continued to take shape, as the company announced the addition of seven retailers to the growing mix of tenants at Springfield Avenue Market- place. The mixed-use development, which is anchored by a high- ly successful ShopRite that opened Fall 2015, has energized University Heights and the surrounding area by delivering 115,000 s/f of new retail space, and is serving the area’s need for high-quality housing op- tions with a 152-unit luxury apartment building known as 24 Jones. Retailers joining the mix include: • Plus-size clothier Ashley Stewart, which signed a 4,500 s/f lease, opens today • Popeyes Lousiana Kitchen, which signed a 1,800 s/f lease, will open this Spring • MetroPCS, which signed a 800 s/f lease, will open this Spring • Huddle House, a popular breakfast eatery, signed a 2,400 s/f lease, and will open this Summer • T-Mobile, which signed a 1,800 s/f lease, will open late Summer • Roberto’s Pizza signed a 2,100 s/f lease, will open late this Summer • Venus Beauty signed a 3,500 s/f lease, will open late this Summer “With a scarcity of retail availabilities within new gro- cery-anchored developments, Springfield Avenue Market- place presents a unique oppor- tunity for clothiers, restaura- teurs and other retailers,” said Jake Frantzman of Ripco Real Estate . “With grocery, fashion and dining already on- site, the development presents a perfect retail environment, so it’s no surprise the property is 85-percent leased after such a short period of time.” Since opening in September 2015, Springfield Avenue Mar- ketplace has played a major role in the ongoing transforma- tion of University Heights, at- tracting new residents – largely professionals and graduate students – while bringing the area an array of shopping op- tions that has increased the

S hopping C enters By David Goodman, Equity Retail Brokers Sprouts Farmer’s Market coming to Philly, South Jersey

S prouts Farmers Market, an organic and natu- ral foods grocer with

in South Philadelphia, a mixed- use development that Kimco is involved in. The Moorestown store would inhabit part of the space in the Moorestown Mall that Macy’s recently vacated. Sprouts expansion to the northeast comes at a time when sales of organic food has been soaring in the U.S. Until recently, Whole Foods has owned most of the organic mar- ket in Greater Philadelphia. However, Mom’s Organic Mar- ket and bFresh have recently entered the market, and sev- eral traditional and discount

grocery stores - like Aldi and ShopRite - have been increas- ing their organic and natural foods offerings. Newcomer Lidl is expected to offer a significant variety of organics, as well. What this all leads to is “a price war of unprecedented proportions,” according to Burt Flickinger III, managing di- rector at Strategic Resource Group. Nationally, Sprouts had re- ported that they have 63 sites approved for new stores and 43 signed leases “for the coming years.” As reported previously, Al- bertsons (Acme) is exploring an acquisition of the Sprouts chain. n Durkin of Roddy brokers lease expansion at Langhorne Square SC Levittown, PA —R oddy Inc . announced that it repre- sented Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County in expanding their lease by an additional 7,715 s/f, bringing the total leased to 26,389 s/f within the Langhorne Square Shopping Center located on E. Lincoln Highway, Levittown. Habitat for Humanity of Bucks’ mission is to build af- fordable homes, better lives, stronger families, and safer re- vitalized communities through partnerships with people and organizations throughout Bucks County. Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work and they accept volun- teers and supporters from all backgrounds who are willing to serve people in need of de- cent housing. The organization plans to use the space for a Habitat for Humanity ReStore, providing for the sale and dis- play of construction materi- als, furniture, and household furnishings to the local com- munity. Revenue from Habitat ReStore provides a source of sustainable funding for the con- struction and repair of homes throughout the county. The Habitat Bucks Home- ownership Program provides an opportunity for low-income fam- ilies to increase their indepen- dence and economic well-being through home ownership and educational opportunities. n

268 stores in 15 states, is r e p o r t e d l y planning on a new store in Philadel- phia, PA and Moorestown, N J . B o t h stores would
