Forman Mills, a big-box retailer specializing in off-price apparel, has signed a lease for more than 38,500 square feet at Forestville Plaza Shopping Center in Prince George’s County. MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services LLC arranged the lease, which lowered the remaining leasing area of the mall to 2,000 square feet.

Forestville Plaza Shopping Center is located east of downtown Washington, D.C., at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Forestville Road and comprises 218,000 square feet. Anchor tenants include Roses, Save-a-Lot, Price Busters Furniture and Shoe Show. The shopping center was recently redeveloped, receiving an upgraded exterior facade, parking lot resurfacing and lighting fixtures.

“Forestville Plaza Shopping Center has been transformed by its owner, PMM Enterprises, from a once dilapidated, run down shopping center with large vacancy, to a now thriving commercial retail hub offering the community of Forestville value and affordability,” stated Ginny Vernick, vice president at MacKenzie, in prepared remarks. PMM Enterprises was represented by Vernick, while Michael Isen of NAI Michael represented Forman Mills in the transaction.

In May, MacKenzie was tapped to handle leasing efforts for The O’Dea Medical Arts Building, a Class A medical office building, situated on the campus of University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, Md.
