Irgang Group arranges 46K sq. ft. in new leases at Union Lake Crossing in Millville

Latest signings include Old Navy, Skechers, Inspira Health, Rally House, Five Guys, Poke Bros. and Crumbl

Irgang Group recently signed a series of new leases totaling 46,000 square feet at Union Lake Crossing in Millville. The leases come on the heels of a previous wave of 61,000 square feet of new leases executed by Irgang, bringing the ratio of space leased at the 393,000-square-foot power center to approximately 98%. At the time the New York-based firm acquired the southern New Jersey shopping center in November 2021, approximately 72% of space was leased.

New signings for the property include Old Navy, Skechers, Inspira Health, Rally House, Poke Bros., Crumbl and a recently opened Five Guys. These follow previous signings and openings of Fun City Adventure Park, Cato Fashions and Boot Barn, as well as the expansion and remodeling of Five Below.

Serving the greater Millville-Vineland market, Union Lake Crossing is anchored by ShopRite, Kohl’s/Sephora and shadow anchor Target. In addition to Fun City (which debuted in January), subanchors include Ross Dress for Less, PetSmart, Staples and Boot Barn. Other notable tenants include Famous Footwear, Party City, Five Below, Buffalo Wild Wings, Sonic, Moe’s Southwest Grill, AAA and Charles Schwab.

“With these latest signings of prominent national and regional tenants and deals in the works with two other national chains for small spaces, all that remains available at Union Lake is a 2,300-square-foot inline store and an undeveloped pad site that can include drive-thru lanes,” Irgang Group CEO Mark Irgang said.

“In all, we’ve executed leases on nearly 108,000 square feet since taking over the property, backfilling major vacancies arising from the departure of Dick’s, bankruptcies of Pier 1 and Dressbarn, and closings of several smaller tenants,” he continued. “This progress is a testament to the quality of this real estate, the retail industry’s rebound, and the efforts of our exclusive leasing agent, R.J. Brunelli & Co., and their predecessor, Metro Commercial.”

Among the recently executed leases, the 15,000-square-foot Old Navy will occupy the remaining portion of the former Dick’s store that was primarily filled by Fun City. The retailer, which is expected to open this fall, will be relocating to Union Lake from a nearby center. R.J. Brunelli Principal and Vice President Mario Brunelli and sales associate Chelsea Reizner represented Irgang Group on the lease, while Old Navy was represented by Michael Friedman of Inline Realty.

Health care provider Inspira Health is expected to open this summer in a 9,127-square-foot endcap space previously occupied by Pier 1. The office will offer a wide range of services from primary and specialty practitioners. Inspira currently operates three hospitals and over 35 satellite physicians’ offices across five southern New Jersey counties. Brunelli and Reizner represented Irgang Group, while Inspira was represented by Craig Levitan of Rendina Healthcare Real Estate.

A summer debut is also anticipated for Skechers, which will open its first store in Cumberland County in a 7,500-square-foot space previously held by Dressbarn. Irgang Group was represented by Brunelli and Reizner, while Skechers was represented by George Wisnoski of Equity Retail Brokers.

Rally House, the fast-growing chain featuring officially licensed gear from pro and college teams, is also expected to make its county debut this summer, leasing a 7,500-square-foot space formerly occupied by Marburn Curtains. Brunelli and Reizner represented Irgang Group on the lease, while Jonathan Spoerl and Michael Gorman of Metro Commercial represented Rally House, which currently operates 190-plus stores in 18 states.

As noted, Five Guys already opened its first location in the county at the property, leasing a 4,400-square-foot space that had been home to Quest Diagnostics. Brunelli and Reizner brokered the lease for Irgang Group, while Stanton Brown of MSC represented the burger chain’s franchisee.

Additionally, Irgang subdivided a 2,400-square-foot former Geico office to accommodate two fast-growing food chains: Crumbl and Poke Bros, with both expected to open this summer. Crumbl, which franchises over 1,000 cookie bakeries throughout the U.S., leased 1,400 square feet. Irgang Group was represented by Brunelli and Reizner, while R.J. Brunelli Principal and CEO Ron Deluca represented Crumbl’s franchisee.

Poke Bros., which will occupy a 1,000-square-foot space, has 80-plus locations in 16 Eastern and Midwestern states offering customized Hawaiian-style bowls with diced raw fish, rice, various toppings and sauces. The landlord was represented by Brunelli and Reizner, while Niklas Marley of Metro Commercial represented the tenant.

Located in the heart of Cumberland County’s regional shopping hub, Union Lake Crossing is situated at the signalized intersection of North 2nd Street (State Highway 47) and Union Lake Boulevard, with easy access to State Highway 55, a major north-south freeway.
