If you might be searching for how redevelopment can revamp and breathe lifetime into a fatigued, previous shopping heart, just take a look at Hazlet City Centre.

The just one-two departure of Pathmark and Kmart in 2015 and 2016 left a 150,000-square-foot emptiness in the middle of the centre, at the time referred to as Kmart Plaza. It can be situated in the coronary heart of Hazlet’s retail corridor on Route 35.

By the time, Onyx Equities bought it in 2016 for $23 million, it was only 25% occupied. A calendar year afterwards, Hazlet officers approved a redevelopment strategy to give the purchasing center a makeover and facelift. It manufactured way for new suppliers, like Burlington and Aldi and new dining places like Panera Bread and Bubbakoo’s Burritos. It’s now virtually entire.
