The Future of Neighborhood Retail

Some retail will never go away, you’ll always need to be able to run to the store or the dentist for the conveniences of everyday life. How is the average neighborhood changing, where should you be looking for your next investment or development and how do demographics play in to your transaction choices?

2:50 – 3:05

Evolution of Retail: Cap Rates and NNN Investments

Retail’s face is changing. In the evolution of retail, should you be chasing cap rates or are other property types becoming more attractive investments? How does M&A activity affect NNN properties? Hear from the experts on investment and NNN sales to plan your next deal.

4:15 – 5:00

Should Your Shovel Be in the Dirt or in the Cloud?

Development activity is high across all of the property types. The intersection of e-commerce and the in-person shopping experience brings together industrial spaces across the supply chain and your retailers. Where should you be focusing your development activities…in the cloud or in the dirt?

It is critical that we all take the emerging challenge presented by the Coronavirus seriously. We should remain calm and await more information to be provided by health experts. Clearly, there needs to be an awareness of the potential impact on the CRE industry from an economic perspective. We are watching the rapidly evolving situation to determine the best approach to our business and prepare plans based on information and recommendations from health officials. We ask those planning to attend conferences take the necessary precautions to help prevent the spread of the virus. We will look for ways to help educate those in the CRE industry and work with our event venue partners to create the safest environment possible. Some of the recommendations to protect yourself offered by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) include:
  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes or mouth without first washing your hands
  • Use tissue when sneezing or coughing and dispose of immediately
  • Avoid close contact with individuals showing signs of fever or persistent cough
If you don’t feel well take all of the above steps and
  • Seek the advice of your doctor and call ahead for appointments
  • Refrain from unnecessary contact with family members or pets
  • Stay home or work remotely
