Kendig Square shopping center sells for $24.55M

A York-based real estate partnership has paid $24.55 million for Lancaster County’s Kendig Square.

The nearly 269,000-square-foot West Lampeter Township shopping center was purchased by Triple BAR Kendig Square LLC, according to a deed filed Oct. 7.

Triple BAR Group is a partnership of J.C. BAR Properties, Triple Crown Corp. and Weathervane Capital Partners. In central Pennsylvania, J.C. BAR’s portfolio also includes Waynesboro Shopping Center; Hampden Marketplace, Enola; Blue Ridge Village, Harrisburg; and York Marketplace.

The acquisition was announced by J.C. BAR in a LinkedIn post.

Kendig Square is anchored by Weis Markets and includes nationally recognized tenants, with a single vacancy of approximately 8,800 square feet remaining, the post said.

On Willow Street Pike (Route 272), the retail center “is located within a fast-growing market of residential, retail and warehouse distribution, making it the ideal location for any use,” a Bennett Williams Commercial listing brochure said. In addition to Weis, tenants include Ocean State Job Lot, which recently moved into half of a former Kmart; Rite Aid; Dollar Tree; Pet Supplies Plus; Planet Fitness and others.
