Brooklyn’s Kings Highway Plaza Opens First Three Tenants

Kings Highway Plaza, located at 5200 Kings Hwy. in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, recently celebrated the grand opening of Target, Five Below and Smashburger, totaling nearly 65,000 square feet of leased space. Geoff Bailey, managing director with RIPCO Real Estate, is representing the 80,000-square-foot-plus project on behalf of Bridges Development Group. Approximately 15,000 square feet is currently available. 
“With nearly 350,000 residents in the neighborhood surrounding Kings Highway Plaza, the site offers much-needed food and retail access to the local community,” said Bailey. “Smashburger has been performing extremely well since its recent opening and we anticipate great success for Target and Five Below. We are negotiating deals for the two remaining spaces and hope to have more tenant announcements soon.”
Jeff Howard of RIPCO represented Target, Erin Grace and Hillary Sievers of JLL represented Five Below, and Miles Mahoney and Chris Walter of RIPCO represented Smashburger in leasing negotiations.
