CHICAGO, Sept. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Bucksbaum Properties, LLC, a real estate owner and developer based in Chicago, announces its recent acquisition of Plaza La Mer, a prominent neighborhood shopping center located in Juno Beach, Florida. This strategic investment continues Bucksbaum’s neighborhood retail investment initiative with plans for continued growth in new markets including Florida.

Retail fundamentals remain a central focus of Bucksbaum’s investment strategy, consistently evaluating how retail interacts with all asset classes.

The acquisition of Plaza La Mer aligns with Bucksbaum’s strategic vision, leveraging the in-place pricing of retail assets to acquire exceptionally well-located land. The company is particularly interested in assets that offer a long-term potential for higher and better use, presenting multiple paths to success with in-place cash flow.

“We are excited about the acquisition of Plaza La Mer and the opportunities it presents in enhancing our retail portfolio,” stated John Bucksbaum, Founder of Bucksbaum Properties. “Our flexible capital, extensive industry experience, and unparalleled track record in development, property management, and leasing uniquely position us to capitalize on assets like Plaza La Mer and execute our strategy effectively in various markets across the United States.”
