Larken Associates, a regional leader in commercial and residential real estate building, development and management, announces it has negotiated a new commercial lease deal with Dollar Tree for 12,680 square feet of retail space at Echo Plaza Shopping Center located at 901 Mountain Avenue in Springfield, NJ.

Dollar Tree is a national retailer with thousands of stores conveniently located within shopping centers in all contiguous 48 states. Carrying a broad, exciting mix of trusted regional and national brands, Dollar Tree’s shoppers are able to pick from a diverse selection of housewares, glassware, cleaning supplies, food, health and beauty, toys, gifts, party supplies, books, seasonal décor, and more all for one dollar or less.

Located in the heart of the most heavily trafficked retail corridor in northern New Jersey, Echo Plaza Shopping Center is a 66,567-square-foot community retail center with ample highway frontage along Route 22 and Mountain Avenue. The shopping center features superior visibility and accessibility making it a highly attractive destination for a diverse range of tenants. The center also includes Larken Associates’ Echo Executive Plaza, a 41,000-square-foot Class-A office building that is home to a wide range of financial, insurance and professional services companies.

The lease deal highlights the continued expansion of Larken Associates’ relationship with Dollar Tree. Their new Springfield store will be the third Dollar Tree location within Larken Associates’ portfolio with stores already located in its Tilghman Square Shopping Center in Allentown, Pa. and its Fairless Hills Towne Center in Fairless Hills, PA. Larken Associates’ Allentown Commons in Allentown, PA is also home to a Family Dollar store, which is part of the Dollar Tree family.

“Our longstanding relationships with Dollar Tree as well as with other national retailers is not only a testament to our high-quality and well-located retail inventory across the East Coast but also a direct result of our team’s property management expertise,” said Victor Kelly, Executive Vice President of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates. “We are pleased to welcome Dollar Tree to Echo Plaza Shopping Center and look forward to continuing to build upon our successful relationship.”
