Abrams & Howells Development, LLC is the developer/owner of the power center that selected ARK Management, which began management responsibility on July 1, 2010. The power center was completed in 2006.
“After reviewing bids from several national firms, we selected ARK Management due to its recent growth success, as well as the personalized service it can provide to this thriving power center,” explained Don Howells, co-founder of Abrams & Howells Development, LLC. “Since we are focused on tenant retention at Lake Elsinore MarketPlace, this new management team will continue to hold regular events to increase the traffic to the center, as well as provide activities for the surrounding community.”
