Federal Realty acquires dominant retail properties with expansion, redevelopment, and lease-up/re-leasing potential for our own account.  We acquire larger grocery-anchored neighborhood centers, community centers, lifestyle centers, collections of “street retail” properties and properties that lend themselves to long-term mixed-use redevelopment and/or include non-retail components such as office or residential.  We prefer, but do not require, a grocery anchor and are relatively flexible with respect to format.  With respect to location, we only pursue transactions within our target markets and prefer proven, regional trade areas within those target markets.  We have the ability to creatively structure transactions to meet owner’s estate and tax planning objectives (including issuing OP Units) and will assume existing loans if the debt is uneconomic to retire at closing.  For a list of our target markets and additional information regarding Federal Realty's acquisition criteria, click on the PDFs below.
