ShopOne Acquires Lake Ridge Commons in Woodbridge, VA as Part of Joint Venture Targeting Grocery-Anchored Retail Assets

Marks joint venture’s second property in the Washington D.C. MSA

NEW YORK, October 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ShopOne Centers REIT Inc. ("ShopOne"), a fully integrated U.S. grocery-anchored shopping center investment, management and operating platform, today announced that it, together with its joint venture partners, Pantheon and a leading global institutional investor, have entered the state of Virginia with the acquisition of Lake Ridge Commons, a 74,367 square-foot Giant Food anchored shopping center located in Woodbridge, Virginia.

Situated in a densely populated and affluent suburban community approximately 20 miles southwest of Washington D.C., Lake Ridge Commons features a 52,706 square-foot Giant Food, the top grocer by market share in the Washington D.C. MSA. In addition to Giant Food, which has been in occupancy at the property since 1987, the existing tenant roster features a diverse and highly complementary mix of regional and local retailers that includes Banfield Pet Hospital and YogaSix. The property is situated at a signalized intersection along Old Bridge Road, the submarket’s primary east-west thoroughfare, which sees daily traffic of over 39,000 vehicles. A population of more than 217,000 people, with an average household income of over $132,000, lives within five-miles of the center.

"We are pleased to enter Virginia and expand our presence in the Mid-Atlantic region with the acquisition of Lake Ridge Commons, a seasoned and high-performing shopping center located in a mature retail submarket," said Chris Reed, Chief Investment Officer at ShopOne. "We look forward to becoming part of the local community and leveraging our proven operating platform to enhance the property in a way that drives value for residents and our investors."

Virginia is the second east coast state the joint venture has entered in September. Earlier this month, the companies acquired Shoppes on the Parkway, an approximately 40,000-square-foot shopping center situated in Cary, North Carolina, an infill submarket of Raleigh. The joint venture has more than $1 billion of investment capacity and features a $225 million senior credit facility providing debt capital for the initial portfolio and future acquisitions. With a strong acquisitions pipeline, the joint venture is actively working to expand across its target markets.
