Cornerstone is happy to announce the sale of Brooklyn Commons Shopping Center to Ocean State Job Lot. Ocean State has been a wonderful tenant since 1995. We are pleased that they are the new owners of the center. We wish them endless success and continue to value this partnership.

The 105,000 square feet of prime retail space is located on route 6 in Brooklyn, CT. Other national tenants in the center include Dollar Tree, AutoZone, Rent-A-Center, KFC/Taco Bell and Subway. The Center is approximately one mile from I-395, a major north-south interstate connecting Connecticut to all of New England. Purchased by Cornerstone in 1981, it has been a fantastic property and we are glad to have sold it to one of our long term tenants.
