February 12, 2008

ABERDEEN, N.J. – Garden Commercial Properties has signed leases with eight notable retailers at Colonial Plaza, a 178,000-square-foot shopping center located in the Monmouth County Township of Aberdeen.

The new tenants feature an eclectic mix of national and local businesses, including Wachovia Corporation -- which has secured a 4,000-square-foot bank-pad site --  and Zaslow’s Fine Collectables, which has leased 4,500-square-feet of space at the open-air retail center, according to Michael Gartenberg, Director of Leasing for the Short Hills, N.J. –based developer. 

Additional lessees at Colonial Plaza include Salad Works, Hair Care, , Planet Beach Tanning Salon, Math Monkey Education Center; Marinaccio Jewelers and Game Stop – all of which have leased 1,500-square-feet of space – and Jake’s Racing Collectables which reserved a 2,000-square-foot space.  

The retailers will join anchor tenants Stop & Shop, Bed Bath & Beyond and Famous Footwear which opened at Colonial Plaza in 2007. 

Situated at the intersection of Route 34, Colonial Plaza has drawn the attention of both nationally-recognized retailers and fine local businesses due to its highly visible location along the heavily trafficked Aberdeen-Matawan stretch of Route 34. The complex is also within close proximity to the Garden State Parkway and Route 9 to provide access to one of New Jersey’s fastest-growing residential bases.
