Crow Holdings purchased the shopping center on behalf of its Crow Holdings Realty Partners Fund VI from JBG Rosenfeld Retail for $113m last month.

It sits at 5 Bel Air South Parkway, about 20 miles north of Baltimore — the largest city in Maryland. The property is 99% leased to 69 tenants, including a 62,741 sq ft ShopRite supermarket anchor, A.C. Moore, Petco, Marshalls and Kohl’s.

A CBRE team led by Mike Riccio and David Webb arranged the financing.
