“Dollar Tree is a large driver of foot traffic and a reliable anchor tenant who we believe will send a strong signal to local retailers,” Dillon said.

Dollar Tree will occupy almost one-third of the retail space at the property, according to Ripco Real Estate’s Richard Senior, who represented Hudson in the deal along with colleagues David Goldschmidt and Chris Walther. Senior and Esther Bukai worked on behalf of Dollar Tree. The asking rent was $40 per square foot net, Senior said.
