Rockwood Real Estate Advisors Retained to Market Swedesford Plaza

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rockwood Real Estate Advisors, a full service real estate investment banking firm, has announced that it has been retained on an exclusive basis to market the sale of Swedesford Plaza, a premier grocery anchored shopping center in Berwyn, Pennsylvania. Thomas Dobrowski, Managing Director in Rockwood’s New York office will be handling the assignment on behalf of the seller.

Swedesford Plaza (the "Property"), is a 147,115 square foot Pathmark and HH Gregg anchored dominant shopping center. The Property’s location is truly unmatched, as it is situated in the affluent Philadelphia Main Line suburb of Berwyn in Chester County, PA. The Property benefits from a number of distinct and unique advantages including: (i) 84,000 vehicles per day traffic count along US Highway 202, the primary artery servicing the area; (ii) $120,000 average household incomes in the five mile trade area, increasing to $150,000 in the one mile trade area; (iii) Infill location with significant barriers to entry, in the shadow of King of Prussia Mall, the largest shopping mall on the East Coast; and (iv) 97% occupancy with less than 13% of tenants rolling in the next three years.

According to Thomas Dobrowski, “Swedesford Plaza offers investors a rare opportunity to purchase a grocery anchored shopping center in one of the strongest sub-markets in the Philadelphia Metro.” Dobrowski notes, “Institutional offerings of this nature are few and far between within this market, especially for assets with such close proximity to King of Prussia Mall.” Rockwood expects the offering to appeal to a broad range of national and regional real estate companies.
