WEST WINDSOR, NJ-Principal Real Estate Investors and Madison Marquette jointly acquired MarketFair, a 240,000-sf lifestyle center located here along Route 1. Anchored by a Barnes and Noble bookstore as well as a United Artists theater, the shopping center is currently 98% occupied and features sales in excess of $400 per sf. Other retailers include Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Anthropologie and Smith & Hawken.

“We see upside potential in MarketFair through re-merchandising and strengthening the existing tenant roster,” explains Tom Falatko, vice president of acquisitions at Madison Marquette. Frank Orioli, director of acquisitions, Principal Real Estate Investors, adds the companies were attracted to the site due to the strong tenants and prime location.

Madison Marquette, an affiliate of international investment firm Capital Guidance Corporation, oversees more than 28 million sf of regional malls, specialty centers, community centers, urban villages and other retail and mixed-use properties throughout the US, maintaining offices in Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Nashville, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Irvine, CA.
