Commercial real estate services firm Levin Management Corp. announced a pair of transactions at High Pointe Commons, a 325,000-square-foot regional shopping center in Swatara Township.

Athletic shoe and apparel franchise Fleet Feet has leased 2,700 square feet, and a long-term lease extension for 35,000 square feet has been signed with junior anchor Christmas Tree Shops.

Fred Younkin, leasing representative with Levin Management, arranged both transactions on behalf of the property’s ownership.

A release said that Fleet Feet is the largest franchisor of locally owned and operated running stores in the country. The High Pointe Commons Fleet Feet is owned by Fred and Shelby Joslyn, who also own Fleet Feet in Mechanicsburg.

“High Pointe Commons is an exciting place for us to be,” Fred Joslyn said. “We are committed to building relationships. As a local business, it’s important for us to be involved in the community, and we are passionate about helping others achieve their fitness goals. We hold many of our own runs and races each year, and lend support to other running events – something we look forward to continuing here.”

Also, specialty retailer Christmas Tree Shops – a tenant at the shopping center since 2007 – extended its commitment.

“Great things are happening at High Pointe Commons,” Younkin said. “Fleet Feet is a wonderful addition to the tenant mix and will attract even more customers to the center. Christmas Tree Shops has been a long-time presence at High Pointe Commons; this lease extension underscores the confidence that tenants have in the property as a business location.”

The latest transactions follow a recent lease with Sugaring NYC Organic Waxing & Lash Studio, which will open soon.

In addition, High Pointe Commons – off Exit 2 of Interstate 283 – includes shadow anchors Target and JCPenney, along with Orangetheory Fitness, Sally Beauty, Petco, T-Mobile, Lane Bryant, GameStop, Famous Footwear, GNC, Hair Cuttery and others.

The wide-ranging dining mix features Panera Bread, Subway, Chili’s, Tropical Smoothie Café, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Teriyaki Madness, Five Guys and Friendly’s.
