Kevin Pelio, executive vice president of Azarian Realty Co., represented the Shoppes at North Brunswick and David Dunkelman of Soloff Realty & Development represented the Big Blue Swim School in the transaction.

Big Blue Swim School will add to the center’s already diverse mix of specialty stores, fitness and restaurants.

“We are delighted to add Big Blue Swim School to the Shoppes, which will round out our impressive and diverse lineup of retailers. Big Blue will offer the community a family-focused environment for children to have healthy physical fitness and hands-on training for this life-essential skill, that will last a lifetime,” Pelio said.

“In the evolution of the shopping center from a core soft good retail setting, to now a broad spectrum of food offerings, service and fitness offerings, as well as a continued roster of national clothing retailers, our vision is coming to fruition in strengthening the merchandising mix and increasing weekly customer visits. This lease now brings the shopping center to 94% occupied,” Pelio added.
