Developer Diversified Realty has announced the signing of a lease for the first TJ Maxx in Puerto Rico, at Plaza del Norte, a large regional shopping mall located at Hatillo in the northwest of the country. The store is expected to open in spring 2011.

“We are very pleased that TJ Maxx will join us in Puerto Rico,” said Diversified Realty senior vice-president of leasing Bryan Zabell.

“The leasing momentum of our available junior anchor space remains very positive and we anticipate that trend will continue as demand steadily increases and supply steadily declines.”
