”Sunrise Mall provides tremendous redevelopment opportunities given its unique scale and in-place zoning which provides for industrial and other uses. Its location benefits from excellent access to major roadways that connect the property to the eastern edge of New York City and the entirety of Long Island,” the company said in a statement.

“Sunrise Mall is a unique asset with a prime location in a dense, attractive region along the southern shore of Long Island,” said Jeff Olson, Chief Executive Officer of Urban Edge. “This acquisition provides a terrific opportunity for Urban Edge to leverage our redevelopment expertise in repurposing underutilized land and creating value.”
