New stores come to Pohatong Plaza


Purchase, N.Y. -- National Realty & Development Corp. (NRDC) is leasing 49,480-sq.-ft. of new retail tenancies at Pohatcong Plaza in Phillipsburg, N.J. Marshalls/HomeGoods and Quaker Steak and Lube have joined the 562,000-sq.-ft. center.

Marshalls/HomeGoods held their grand openings on Sept. 18 and occupy 42,430 sq. ft. of a redesigned building where Wal-Mart operated before expanding to a supercenter in NRDC’s adjoining Pohatcong Plaza II. Each store features their own distinct entrance with pass-through access allowing customers to cross shop between the two stores. A 56,000-sq.-ft. Hobby Lobby just opened in this building in early July.

Quaker Steak and Lube, the motor sports-themed casual dining concept, opened at Pohatcong Plaza II on Aug. 27. The new restaurant encompasses a 7,048-sq.-ft. design that accommodates seating for 298 people and includes a 2,100-sq.-ft. heated brickyard patio. Its interior décor features three Harley Davidson motorcycles on display along with a snowmobile suspended from the ceiling, and a 2014 Camaro SS placed at the entrance.

“We thank Pohatcong Township Mayor, James R. Kern and the Pohatcong Planning Board for their support in accommodating our redevelopment plans for these new tenants,” said John G. Orrico, president of NRDC. “Pohatcong Plaza’s exceptional tenancy and superior access from busy road networks such as I-78 and Route 22, positions the center as the key regional shopping destination in the area. Shoppers from throughout the region will benefit from the new retail selections and contemporary dining options that are available at Pohatcong Plaza.”
