Regency Centers Acquires the District at Metuchen

Many people outside Whole Foods Market on opening day.

Regency Centers has announced the acquisition of The District at Metuchen, in Metuchen, New Jersey. This 66,000-square-foot center is anchored by Whole Foods Market and located in the vibrant downtown of the trade area. It lies less than two miles from the I-287 and I-95 interchange; two of Metro New York's major arteries. Neighboring the site is the Metuchen station and the Metropark station, servicing a combined 11,000 commuters each weekday.

“Metuchen’s high barriers to entry, as well as the influx in residential for the immediate area make this a dynamic community to be operating in,” said Joanna Rotonde, Senior Manager of Transactions for Regency. “We’re excited to be a part of the continued densification of this rapidly expanding infill market.”

Whole Foods Market celebrated their grand opening last October, which houses Comida Fresca; a fresh, modern Mexican restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Other tenants include European Wax, Title Boxing, and Chipotle. For leasing inquiries, please contact David Sherin at, or 610-747-1212.

“This center is a fantastic addition to our expanding presence in the market,” said John Hricko, Vice President and Market Officer at Regency. “With its premier location, as well as its connectivity to the lifestyles and elements of the neighborhood, The District at Metuchen will continue be a destination for the community’s work, live, and play needs.”
