Willing Biddle, CEO of Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc. said, “We are very pleased that we have continued our expansion into the New Jersey suburbs, which helps fulfill one of our company goals of investing in high quality grocery-anchored shopping centers in the suburban areas surrounding New York City. Coupled with other new holdings in nearby Union and Bergen Counties, including our recent investment in the Village Shopping Center in New Providence, New Jersey and the Chestnut Ridge Shopping Center in Montvale, New Jersey, central and northern New Jersey are proving to be high performance markets for us.” James Aries, Director of Acquisitions at Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc. adds, “We’re thrilled to add another two solid, well located, grocery-anchored centers to our core portfolio. We believe that the Bloomfield Center has strong leasing upside and Boonton is a solid, 100% leased, grocery-anchored shopping center in our core marketplace that we were able to acquire at a reasonable price. Sellers have faith in our ability to close quickly and without complication.”
