WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2014) - Tom Engberg, CEO of Loja Real Estate, announced the acquisition of a three tenant shopping center tenanted by Trader Joe's, Pier 1 Imports and Healthy Living Market located in South Burlington, Vermont. Loja Real Estate purchased the property from a private investor for approximately $24 million. The transaction closed on October 15, 2014.

Trader Joe's and Pier 1 Imports opened earlier this year on a newly developed parcel with Healthy Living Market operating at this location since 2008. The property, consisting of 55,152 square feet of building area and 5.85 acres of land, is located on Dorset Street in close proximity to the University of Vermont.

"We are very excited to add this property to the Loja portfolio. Trader Joe's and Pier 1 Imports are a welcome recent addition to the South Burlington community and Healthy Living has been a strong performer since they relocated to this site in 2008. This acquisition fits well within our triple net grocery anchored investment strategy," stated Scott Kyman, Vice President of Acquisitions.

Loja continues to pursue quality single-tenant grocer acquisitions and grocery anchored centers throughout the United States. Loja currently has in excess of $150 million of additional properties under contract or in its active pipeline.
