About Us

Growing business and building relationships...
The right way.

New Market Properties owns and operates 41 grocery-anchored shopping centers in seven Sunbelt states. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, we are a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of Preferred Apartment Communities, Inc. (NYSE: APTS).

Our strategy is to acquire, invest in, and operate grocery-anchored centers that fit our investment criteria in quality suburban submarkets within the top 100 metro areas from the Virginia side of DC, down through the Mid Atlantic, Southeast, Florida and out through Texas. We target centers that have market dominant grocery anchors that maintain a #1 or #2 market share in that particular market and that have high and growing sales volume stores in the particular center. We also target on a select basis a specialty grocer such as Whole Foods, Sprouts, Fresh Market or Trader Joe’s in a market where they have a significant presence and where the center is located on outstanding real estate.

We seek to do business with owners, operators, investors, and developers of centers that fit inside this strategy through a wide range of business relationships from joint venture, development, redevelopment, value-add, and acquisition.

We pride ourselves on:

  • Our deep and long-standing grocery store and other retail tenant relationships
  • Our development, investment, and operational track records
  • Our reputation for being fair-dealing and solutions oriented approach to the business


What We Do



New Market understands the seller’s objectives throughout the purchase process and is dedicated to providing solutions for a successful transaction. Our company is known for creating mutually beneficial relationships that go well beyond a single transaction. Our diligence, responsiveness, and professionalism is valued by shopping center owners, resulting in a satisfying sale experience. We simply do what we say and say what we mean. Straight-forward and solution-oriented is how we do business.

Our underwriting, due diligence and transition process through closing is seamless, efficient and timely. We know the markets and do not pursue an investment opportunity unless we are fully confident we will close on the deal. In addition to acquiring grocery anchored centers throughout the Sunbelt, we actively provide capital to operators and developers through joint venture equity and mezzanine debt for value add, development, redevelopment and acquisition.



Strong relationships with national and local retailers and the brokerage community, combined with industry experience has contributed to longstanding relationships and repeat business. New Market believes leasing is a true partnership between the landlord and tenant. This outlook, which is synonymous with respect, quality, honesty and delivering on our promises, helps our team guide tenants from lease execution through the opening process.

This partnership philosophy is instilled in our property management style, where we work in tandem with our tenants to deliver the best environment for their business to prosper. We work with our trade area customers’ best interests in mind, providing a high quality consumer experience along with an outstanding tenant mix. For us, we’re focused on the partnership, not the transaction. We are committed to the long-term success of our tenants. Their success is our success and this drives us to be the best partner. We aspire to be considered the landlord of choice by all of our tenants.
