HFF Announces $27.6M Financing of Long Island Grocery-anchored Retail Center


Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the $27.6 million acquisition financing of Huntington Square Plaza, a 116,200-square-foot, fully leased, grocery-anchored center in the Long Island community of Huntington, New York.

The HFF team worked on behalf of the borrower, Sterling Organization, to place the 10-year, fixed-rate loan with John Hancock, which HFF will service. The HFF investment advisory team announced the sale of this property in September.

Completed in 2002, Huntington Square Plaza is home to Stop & Shop and Best Buy. Both credit-rated national retailers are original tenants of the center and have long-term leases. Situated on 10.87 acres at 3124-3126 Jericho Turnpike (New York Route 25), the center is located along the Jericho Turnpike retail corridor at Lakefield Road, one of the most highly traveled retail pockets within Suffolk County with approximately 40,500 vehicles per day. Huntington is an affluent community located on Long Island’s North Shore, and almost 75,000 residents earning an average annual household income of $149,589 live within three miles of Huntington Square Plaza.

The HFF debt placement team included senior managing director Chris Drew, senior director Nat Scarmazzi, managing director Michael Klein, senior managing director Andrew Scandalios and associate Matthew McCormack.
