Real estate private equity firm Madison International Realty has picked up a 50 percent equity interest in Bridgeport Marketplace. The 126,769-square-foot mixed-use grocery-anchored retail center is located in Valencia, Calif., near Los Angeles.

The center, which was developed in 2008, is 94.5 percent leased, with a retail component of 97,786 square feet and a 28,953-square-foot medical office component. The retail component is anchored by Valley Produce Market, Walgreens and California Pizza Kitchen.
