Larken Associates inks lease with Dollar Tree in Springfield

Larken Associates, a Branchburg-based commercial and residential real estate company, announced on Wednesday it has negotiated a new lease for Dollar Tree in Springfield.

Dollar Tree, a national discount retailer, offers a diverse selection of housewares, glassware, cleaning supplies, food, health and beauty, toys, gifts, books, décor and more all for $1 or less.

The 12,680-square-foot store will be located within the Echo Plaza Shopping Center at 901 Mountain Ave. The plaza is a 66,567-square-foot community retail center with frontage along Route 22 and Mountain Ave. The center also includes Larken’s Echo Executive Plaza, a 41,000-square-foot Class A office building.

This is the third Dollar Tree location within Larken’s portfolio, it said.

“Our longstanding relationships with Dollar Tree as well as with other national retailers is not only a testament to our high-quality and well-located retail inventory across the East Coast but also a direct result of our team’s property management expertise,” said Victor Kelly, Executive Vice President of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates. “We are pleased to welcome Dollar Tree to Echo Plaza Shopping Center and look forward to continuing to build upon our successful relationship.”
