Halpern Announces Completion of 36K-SF Publix-Anchored Retail Project in North Carolina

Atlanta-based commercial real estate firm Halpern Enterprises has announced the completion of its Oak Island Market Place retail center in Oak Island, NC. The 35,800-square-foot center is anchored by a 28,000-square-foot Publix supermarket.

Located at 5001 E. Oak Island Dr., the center is 30 miles south of Wilmington and 60 miles north of Myrtle Beach. Oak Island Market Place is the ninth shopping center Halpern has developed or redeveloped with a Publix anchor, and the fourth in North Carolina.
