Adaptive Re-Use to Make Your Retail More Leasable

When Toys R Us, Kids R Us, and Acme Grocery all vacated the Liberty Square Shopping Center in Burlington, NJ,  the center’s owners were faced with the challenge of how to lease the empty big box space. Owner’s National Realty Development Corp partnered with JL Architects to re-position the space to market to today’s retail tenants. Success was had with Planet Fitness, Ross Dress for Less, Marshalls/HomeGoods, and Five Below all signing on to join the the center.
