NewMark Merrill Buys Shopping Center in Chicago

The 292,309-square-foot retail center, Bricktown Square, located at the corner of North Narragansett and West Fullerton Avenue in Chicago, was purchased from Bonnie Investment Group, with NewMark Merrill planning to invest in upgrades to the property.

“We identified this off-market shopping center over two years ago, saw its potential and have been working to acquire it ever since,” said Sandy Sigal, chief executive of NewMark Merrill, in a statement. “Through the pandemic, social unrest and a negative narrative around retail, we were able to identify, secure financing and close on a property that we believe is the dominant retail center in the trade area.”

Bricktown Square currently hosts anchor tenants including Ross Dress for Less, Harbor Freight Tools, Aldi Stores, XSport Fitness, DD’s Discounts and Farmer’s Best Fresh Market.

NewMark Merrill owns and operates 85 shopping centers in Illinois, Colorado and California.
