Katz Properties, which has more than 3.2 million square feet of commercial property under management, bought the Pompano Beach shopping center in March for $46.8 million.

The investors each spent from $10,000 to $125,000 for equity in Pompano Marketplace, where the tenant mix includes a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market, Beall’s Outlet Store, Stein Mart and Ross Dress for Less.

Steven Bettinger, CEO of Acquire Real Estate, said in a company statement that Acquire “pursues stable income-producing investment opportunities managed by top national sponsors.” [Crowdfund Insider] — Mike Seemuth
