As the Company recasts its anchor mix, it continues to add value to its repositioned portfolio, expanding its dialog with key tenants and adding dynamic retail concepts to its roster.

“We are pleased to continue the trend of improving our portfolio quality and mitigating our anchor risk,” said PREIT CEO Joseph F. Coradino. “As we strengthen the core of our portfolio, as we’ve done at Viewmont, we can see the path to achieving sales of $500 per square foot is well within our reach.”
