“We are especially proud to have been selected as the new management firm for The Shops at Montebello,” says Steven Levin, founder and CEO of Centennial. “While the shopping center will continue to operate as normal, Centennial will immediately begin exploring ways to improve upon the core retail experience, adding enhanced services and capabilities that will elevate the center’s merchandising and placemaking strategies while enhancing value for the center’s new ownership group.”
“This property has tremendous potential. Its location, retail tenants, and reputation in the market have positioned it well for growth. With the right vision, The Shops at Montebello can continue to dominate in the retail arena and beyond in this market space,” says Nate Mitchell, Managing Director at Steerpoint Capital, the commercial real estate investment and advisory firm that selected Centennial to manage The Shops at Montebello. “We have seen the tremendous strides Centennial has made with other properties in its ownership and management portfolios, and with its growing development team, we believe Centennial is the right choice to lead The Shops at Montebello into the future.”
From strategic merchandising plans to innovative experiential marketing, customized placemaking solutions, community connections and loyalty programs, Centennial has a unique vision for the future of retail real estate that has led to the successful repositioning of retail properties in key markets from coast to coast. The robust services platform Centennial has built – including an in-house property management, marketing and leasing team – perfectly positions the firm to help retail real estate owners navigate today’s complex retail market while also planning for future value creation.
