NGKF Capital Markets has successfully completed the sale of Rockingham Park in Salem, New Hampshire to OMJ, LLC. Executive Managing Director Richard Ruggiero and Managing Director Justin Smith of the NGKF Capital Markets Boston team, which is led by U.S. Head of Capital Markets Robert Griffin, oversaw the transaction of the 120-acre development opportunity on behalf of Rockingham Ventures, Inc.
Featuring nearly one-half mile of unobstructed frontage along Route 28, Rockingham Park offers significant potential for mixed-use conversion. The property also boasts an iconic history - thoroughbred horse racing began at Rockingham Park in 1906 and champion racehorse Seabiscuit visited the track in 1935.
“As one of the largest offerings of its kind in recent New England history, Rockingham Park represents a generational opportunity to acquire a 120-acre contiguous parcel,” said Smith. “As such, the property lends itself to a multi-faceted development that can accommodate the full myriad of ‘live-work-play’ components.”
Strategically situated at Exit 1 off Interstate 93, Rockingham Park is well located just moments from the Massachusetts-New Hampshire border. The property also benefits from adjacency to The Mall at Rockingham Park, a one million square foot super-regional shopping center. This prime retail destination features three- and five-mile population counts of 31,700 and 118,000 people, respectively, with coinciding average household incomes of $95,400 and $84,200.
