Levin arranges 15,800 sq. ft. Tropical Supermarket lease in South Plainfield

Tropical Supermarket is coming to Clinton Corners in South Plainfield, Levin Management Corp. said. The grocer, which has a Hispanic flair and an established presence in New Jersey, will take over space at Clinton Corners that formerly housed a Bravo supermarket — maintaining the property’s full occupancy.

LMC serves as exclusive leasing and managing agent for Clinton Corners, a popular neighborhood retail center. Senior Leasing Representative Vanessa Fernandez-Kelty arranged the 15,800-square-foot lease. The transaction highlights LMC’s long history as a grocery-anchored retail specialist and represents its second with Tropical Supermarket, which has operated at the LMC-leased and -managed Hamilton Street Center in Franklin Township for 12 years.

“As an essential retail category and one that has proven to be internet-resistant, grocery is a significant element for any shopping center,” Fernandez-Kelty said. “The South Plainfield community has long benefited from the convenience of a supermarket anchor at Clinton Corners, and it is welcome news — both for local residents and the center’s in-place tenants — that Tropical Supermarket has chosen to locate here.”

Located at 1225 W. 7th St., less than three miles from heavily traveled Route 22, Clinton Corners is home to a Burger King and T&J Fish Market, along with a mix of local favorites including a Chinese restaurant, beauty supply store, pharmacy, nail salon and laundromat. The 30,300-square-foot center serves a growing residential population of more than 136,000 people with an average household income of $101,000 within a three-mile radius.
