"Our enrollment has grown significantly, and we are pleased that Levin and Capitol Plaza could accommodate our expansion needs," said Greg Karr, the Center's chief executive officer. "We are a commuter school, and this property offers a number of advantages, including plenty of parking and attractive accommodations, not to mention the benefits of onsite retail and dining. Its easily accessible Ewing location provides a convenient, central setting for our southern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania students."
The Center for Allied Health & Nursing Education works to bridge the labor gap occurring in the nursing field by training and preparing competent professionals to enter the job market. It has grown from one campus located in Hackensack, N.J., to five East Coast locations. The Center has more than 1,000 enrolled students and will surpass 2,000 nurse graduates by the end of 2012.
"The Center for Allied Health Nursing is a great example of the many well-established Capitol Plaza tenants who have chosen to locate, stay and grow here," noted Michael Cohen, Levin Management's vice president of leasing. "The company's commitment also reflects the increased, industry-wide presence of ‘non-traditional' tenants in retail environments. The expansion is a win-win for Capitol Plaza because it not only absorbs vacant space but will generate more student traffic to support the retailers located here."
Capitol Plaza's tenant roster includes a recently opened Planet Fitness, as well as anchors Marshalls, Save-A-Lot, Harbor Freight Tools, Forman Mills and American Furniture. Other national and regional retailers include Ashley Stewart, Kicks USA, Foot Locker and GNC. Capitol Plaza is also home to a U.S. Armed Forces Career Center. The property's 1001 Spruce Office Center component houses a number of businesses as well.
