The contraction of retail, and the empty spaces it has left behind, has meant opportunity for industrial redevelopment in some cases, such as a former regional mall in Ohio that is now serving Amazon.
That prominent example is the site of the 2.2M SF Randell Park Mall in suburban Cleveland. Vintage 1976, the property sputtered to an end in the 21st century. The site was razed entirely a few years ago and is now an Amazon warehouse, or fulfillment center, as the retail giant calls it......more
Much of that growth might not be by the coworking model pioneered during this decade by WeWork and others, the report also says. CBRE predicts a shift in the industry toward partnerships between building landlords and coworking companies, rather than coworking companies being tenants that then sublease...
You don’t have to dig too deep to see how the Trump administration’s tariffs on China will likely impact the real estate industry. But the picture gets a little more complicated when you consider residential rental properties in particular.
To understand how the ongoing trade war is expected to impact independent landlords, it’s essential to consider a few other factors at play, including residential housing starts, current appetite for buying and renting homes and the potential economic impact of a long-term conflict.......more
Whether it happens this year, next year, or in 10 years, another recession is inevitable. Regardless of when it comes, it’s unlikely to have a large negative impact on the real estate market. However, there are some metro areas that are more at risk of a housing downturn than others. Riverside, Phoenix and Miami have the highest risk of a housing downturn in the next recession, while Rochester, Buffalo and Hartford have the lowest risk.
With the Great Recession still fresh in Americans’ memories, the idea of a housing crash is psychologically linked with an economic recession for many people today. But historically that usually hasn’t been the case...
Retail giant Amazon is preparing to hold job fairs around the country in hopes of recruiting as many as 30,000 new workers above and beyond the company`s seasonal expansion that comes every fall. If Amazon succeeds in hiring that many workers, it would represent a 5% increase in its workforce.
The fairs, which will happen Sept. 17, will be in highly developed logistics markets, and in some cases where Amazon already has a strong presence. Besides the company`s hometown of Seattle, the events are also scheduled for Arlington, Virginia, home of HQ2, along with Boston, Chicago, Dallas and Nashville......more

WeWork is an amazing business. They are a
phenomenon. There are a lot of reasons why WeWork attained the
valuation it currently has — which many consider crazy. It was reported
last week that the valuation was being slashed — but it is still crazy
even at half the price.
The first question worth asking is why WeWork was originally valued at $47 billion....

More than a year after Three World Trade Center opened its doors, the tower’s Church Street-facing retail base remains embarrassingly dark.
And retail mall operator Westfield blames the Port Authority.
Westfield says it can’t bring in store tenants because it still doesn’t have the keys. “The space hasn’t been handed over yet,” a company spokesperson said — meaning by the Port Authority......more
Victoria’s Secret, founded with the idea that men should feel more comfortable shopping for the women in their lives, is trying to reframe itself as a brand that’s actually made with female customers in mind. But that’s a tough message to deliver when most of your management is male.
“There’s a big belief in the company that we need to evolve,” Victoria’s Secret Lingerie Chief Executive Officer John Mehas said during a question-and-answer period at the annual investor day in Columbus, Ohio. “We need to be led by her, for her.”......more
For every real estate investor, the end game — your ultimate goal — must always be in sight. To be successful in real estate investing, you must have a goal, criteria to get there and the network to guide you in the journey.
1. Set Your Goal
First comes your goal. It has always been in my nature to dream huge.
Not just dream big, but huge. What could ultimately bring you happiness
— $10,000 in cash flow per month? OK, now think bigger: What if you
could achieve $15,000 in cash flow per month? Could you travel more?
Could you donate to charities near and dear to your heart? Could you
retire at 40 and put time and energy into another passion in your life?
Don’t limit yourself. Set your goals high...
2. Establish Your Criteria...
3. Build Your Network......more
With housing costs reaching a breaking point, some developers are calling for a détente in the ongoing apartment amenities arms race. That could mean some amenities now taken for granted will be on the way out.
“We are concerned, to say the least, that we`re reaching a sort of internal rent tolerance among most of our renters,” Waypoint Residential Chief Development Officer Eric Hade said. “You can`t push [renters] much further before they have to buy a new house or, you know, I think what they will alternatively do is move out to the suburbs.”......more
I am also often asked to be involved in helping create content for most of the conferences I attend. It’s not exactly an easy thing to do and like anything else sometimes it’s hit or miss whether the month spent before putting just one panel together will inform entertain and educate. You are only as good as your worst panelist. And you know who you are!......more
