NEW YORK, NY (August 6, 2015).
Trinity Place Holdings Inc. (“Trinity”) [OTC:TPHS] announced
today that it has executed a long-term lease with Walmart Stores for a Walmart Neighborhood Market for
its Shoppes at Forest Hill shopping center located at the busy intersection of Forest Hill Boulevard and
South Military Trail in the Village of Palm Springs.
The Walmart Neighborhood Market, the company’s grocery store format, will occupy 42,000 square feet
and become the anchor to the 112,000 square foot center which includes such well-known national tenants
as Taco Bell and Boston Market as well as a strong mix of local convenience retail and medical uses. In
concert with the Marketplace tenancy, Trinity will refurbish the façade and parking areas. The addition of
Walmart to the tenant roster solidifies the shopping center’s institutional quality.
“We are excited to meet the need of this area for fresh affordable items at such a convenient location,”
stated Bill Wertz, Director of Communications for Walmart.
“Trinity is not only happy to welcome the Walmart Neighborhood Market as the centerpiece of our
repositioned center, but to be able to provide Palm Springs with real options for quality and affordable
groceries,” said Matt Messinger, President & CEO of Trinity Place Holdings Inc.
The Walmart Neighborhood Market is expected to open in the Spring of 2016 and will bring
approximately 95 new jobs to the area. The store will provide the Village of Palm Springs residents with
low prices on a broad assortment of merchandise including fresh produce and meats, frozen foods,
groceries as well as pharmacy products.
David Lipp of Atlantic Commercial Group Inc. and David Emihovich of Katz & Associates were the
broker and the agent, respectively, for the transaction.
