Westcore Properties, owner and property manager of Alpine Creek Town Center, has announced that Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market will soon join its roster of quality tenants at Alpine Creek Town Center in the space previously occupied by Daniel’s Market. Fresh & Easy recently signed a 10-year lease for 22,015 square feet of retail space at Alpine Creek Town Center. Financial terms were not disclosed, according to Westcore Properties. The company said Fresh & Easy plans to open in August 2012 and will begin making improvements to the space in mid-February. Don Moser with Retail Institute represented Fresh & Easy during lease negotiation. John Jennings and Aaron Hill with Cushman & Wakefield represented Westcore Properties.
“We’re excited to have Fresh & Easy on board,” said Hack Adams, senior vice president of leasing for Westcore Properties. “Fresh & Easy will become a staple for the Alpine community as residents seek wholesome, healthy food for their families. The company’s commitment to providing good food at a cost savings, while also giving back to each community it serves, was important to Westcore Properties as we continue to look for ways to support Alpine with a well-rounded tenant mix.”
