Towson, Md. — Retail Properties of America Inc. (RPAI), a shopping center REIT, has purchased Towson Square, a 138,000-square-foot, entertainment-based retail center anchored by a newly constructed Cinemark Theatre in Towson, roughly 12 miles north of Baltimore.
RPAI purchased the center on an unencumbered basis for $39.7 million. Towson Square includes national and regional restaurant concepts such as BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse, World of Beer, Bobby’s Burger Palace, Bonefish Grill and Nando’s Peri-Peri.
Opened in 2014, Towson Square is currently 96.6 percent leased and is located adjacent to the RPAI’s existing center, Towson Circle. RPAI expects to integrate both centers into one property as part of the larger planned redevelopment. Year to date, RPAI has completed $463.1 million of unencumbered acquisitions.
