  • Generational Asset – Since the development of the shopping center, ownership has only traded hands once before now making this a rare opportunity to acquire
  • Internet Resistant Tenancy – Four of the five tenants consist of restaurants, one being a donut shop, selling food and beverages, and a UPS Store providing services that are not contributive to the internet, creating a tech-proof tenant line-up and protection against any future recessions
