Cole Real Estate Investments (Cole), a diversified real estate company, announced it has acquired Canarsie Plaza, an approximately 278,000-square-foot shopping center located in the Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. The $124 million transaction is one of Cole’s largest multi-tenant retail transactions of the year.
Built in 2011, the property is 96% occupied and is anchored by a number of well-known national tenants, including BJ’s Wholesale Club, Planet Fitness and PetSmart. The property also includes a number of additional specialty retailers such as Vitamin Shoppe, Dunkin’ Donuts, and T-Mobile.

Roberts, executive vice president and head of real estate investments for Cole. “Canarsie Plaza holds long-term leases with nationally recognized retailers who benefit from the positive retail traffic created by the location’s dense population and nearby public transportation.”
