Manors Corner Shopping Center LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ 06/30/2022

Larken Associates announces it has signed retail leases with Hongryong Park Ahn’s Taekwondo for 1,910 square feet and The Druery for 1,044 square feet at Manors Corner Shopping Center, located at 160 Lawrenceville-Pennington Road in Lawrenceville, N.J. The leases bring the commercial property to full occupancy. Weichert Commercial Brokerage represented both tenants in their transactions with Larken Associates, who was represented by Rob Marek, Executive Vice President of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates.

Located at the intersection of Federal City Road and Lawrenceville-Pennington Road, Manors Corner Shopping Center offers 26,564-square-feet of retail and restaurant space for lease minutes from downtown Princeton. The Shopping Center is readily accessible from Routes 1, 206 and Interstate 295 and affords tenants superior connectivity to the surrounding Mercer County area.

With the intention of finding well-maintained, high-quality retail space to expand their growing reach in N.J., Ahn’s Taekwondo identified Manors Corner Shopping Center as the perfect fit to suit their needs. Its superior location within a densely populated residential area will make it a superb space to house a Taekwondo studio and provide the surrounding communities with a safe space to hone their craft and strengthen the mind, body and spirit.

The Druery, a new microbrewery with roots in Philadelphia, Pa., identified the property as an ideal site to open its new, 3-barrel facility. Expected to open in October 2022, The Druery intends to benefit from the location’s surrounding densely populated neighborhood and create a welcoming local brew spot for the community to enjoy new styles and varieties of beer.

“Businesses of all kinds are always on the hunt for properties that have the favorable demographic profile of Lawrenceville,” said Rob Marek, Executive Vice President of Raider Realty, the in-house brokerage division of Larken Associates. “Each of the retail properties making up our carefully curated portfolio provide tenants like Ahn’s Taekwondo and The Druery with unparalleled access to these in-demand communities and we are thrilled to welcome them to Lawrenceville.”
