Florida-based Benderson Development is continuing to grow its real estate holdings in the West Coast and Mountain regions. The real estate company recently acquired the ground lease under Plaza Santa Fe, a 450,000-square-foot market dominate, regional shopping center on approximately 33 acres in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 


Located at the intersection of Cerrillos Rd., Zafarano Dr. and Rodeo Rd., Plaza Santa Fe is the first and only power center in the region. The property features the market’s only Target, Best Buy, TJ Maxx, Ross, Michaels, and Total Wine, among others.

Minutes from historic Downtown, Plaza Santa Fe is the dominate shopping center within a 50-mile radius. It’s a great asset in a great location, and we’re pleased to add this property to our expanding portfolio.”
