Regency Centers Corporation (“Regency” or the “Company”), a national owner, operator, and developer of grocery-anchored shopping centers, has announced the acquisition of the Ridgewood Shopping Center. Located in Raleigh, NC, Ridgewood Shopping Center was originally developed in 1951 and has operated as a grocery anchored center for the past 67 years.
The center is located inside Raleigh’s Beltline, less than three miles from downtown, and anchored by the city’s original Whole Foods Market. Placed among the strongest demographics in the market, Ridgewood is proximate to NC State, Meredith College, and Raleigh’s most-affluent neighborhoods.
Regency Centers is proud to add Ridgewood to our portfolio of high quality shopping centers in the Carolinas,” said Matt Hagan, Regency Centers Vice President and Market Officer. “This is an irreplaceable, infill property with a deep-seated history and is one of the best located centers in the Triangle. We plan to leverage the strength of our leasing, property management and development teams to ensure that the center both reflects and serves the surrounding community.
Along with Whole Foods Market, Ridgewood Shopping Center is also home to Walgreens, Orvis, Fleet Feet Sports and a collection of long-tenured local merchants servicing the trade area. This is Regency’s 13th property in the market, including Cameron Village, Midtown East, and Market at Colonnade Center.
