A generation of renters raised through the Great Recession, dwindling affordability and the advent of social media is leading to new and competing approaches to marketing housing.
Generation Z, defined by Pew Research Center as people born after 1996, is now entering traditional multifamily properties, bringing tastes for smaller apartments, more practical amenities and even influencers with them. And don`t mistake them for millennials, the cohort right before them, Streetsense Director of Trends and Consumer Forecasting Jamie Sabat said.
“We see so many developers talking just about millennials," Sabat said. "But millennials are more in the age bracket where they`re having children and starting to move into the suburbs."

RSK: Gen Z is much more conservative fiscally then their predecessors, Millenials. Hence they do not want debt and want flexibility to move where they job might take them. Smaller spaces more amenities please. Share the rec room and kitchen works for them.

Ken Notes: A wonderful showing for the region! Any winner or nominee is welcome to be a guest on my radio show, Development Matters. Just call Ralph or me...
But few people agree on how just how much that tax should be, or how it should be administered...
RSK: Wow you need to read this to see the difference. I am not for a wealth tax on assets...too cumbersome and the asset needs to be appraised each year. To me mark up isn`t mark up until it is sold. In other words income would be a better way to tax than assets even though it would bring in less money. Of course I am not a fan of all taxes but of a few.
Biproxi, the leading end-to-end commercial real estate platform trusted by the world’s largest commercial brokerages, today announced that it has acquired Officespace.com. The acquisition will allow Biproxi to consolidate all of its commercial real estate (CRE) data and listings on the Officespace.com website, which is already the second-largest CRE listing site in the U.S. with over 550,000 listings and is visited by over 350,000 buyers and tenants every month. In addition, OfficeSpace.com has historical data on over 1.7 million listings reaching back over 15 years.
“We’re excited to add Officespace.com
to the suite of products and services available from Biproxi and to
expand their offerings more broadly to the commercial real estate
community,” said Biproxi CEO Gordon Smith. “This acquisition will allow
us to aggressively build on the success that Officespace.com has seen as
a listing site, while also continuing to develop a robust set of
solutions for brokers under the Biproxi brand.”
RSK: Another Merger & Acquisition in the CRE Data field. This may give CoLoop or LoopStar a run for its money.
Ken Notes: not sure where they get their data but they have 397 Madison listings though many without data. It seems like PropertyDrive should make a "deal" to provide data so we can maintain a one stop shop...

IA Management is a full service property management company located in Madison, Wisconsin. Our objective is to be a profitable leader in both commercial and residential real estate.
Joseph Daniels is unlike anyone you’ve ever met in the world of real estate and construction. At the age of 27, he has already been backed by one of Europe’s richest families and a hedge fund titan, met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss tackling the global housing crisis and built houses on two continents.
He wants to turn his company, UK-based Project Etopia, into the Tesla of housing, by which he means building high-quality, affordable homes that create energy rather than putting carbon dioxide into the air.
It may sound overly ambitious, but then you factor in Daniels’ background. He became homeless for the first time at 15, and has been homeless on four separate occasions. His mother had mental health issues and his father was physically abusive....more
RSK: Not the prettiest on the outside but really a great concept and has so much potential.

Traditional brick-and-mortar shopping offers customers more than an opportunity to purchase—it’s a chance to have a personal interaction with a brand. From the unique way a brand merchandises items down to the lighting and design, music and employees, a brick-and-mortar store experience is just that: an experience.
As customers continue to move towards a digital landscape, brands are exploring new ways to break through the digital noise and offer customers tactile, sensory, and personalized experiences—effectively turning built environments into ad space......more
RSK: Very interesting concept. Wonder if it will work and help out the Malls a bit.

New Yorkers are used to paying a lot to live in small spaces.
The median home price in Manhattan is $1,372 per square foot, according to Zillow.
A renovated apartment in Manhattan`s SoHo neighborhood is on the market for $645,000 — for a space of 350 square feet, which makes the cost $1,843 per square foot.
For comparison, the typical American home is 2,687 square feet and costs $244,054,
according to a 2016 report from the Census Bureau and data from Zillow.
That makes the average price per square feet about $91.
RSK: This is for you Kenny H...not for me...unless you double the size.
Ken Notes: I am just saying we need a mix of options to solve all our problems, but I would take this in a heartbeat... NYC here we come, if Ralph is buying that is...
As Americans increasingly shop online and stay at home, can malls find new community appeal?
Les Sandler has seen the future of the American mall, and it involves blacklight mini golf courses, archery tag (foam-tipped arrows, don’t worry), and interactive batting cages.
Sandler and his son Jonah run Scene75, a Dayton, Ohio–based company that’s found a niche in the new retail economy renovating old warehouses and big box stores to create massive entertainment centers. Since launching in 2009, their company has transformed furniture warehouses, former Kmarts, and other retail real estate into family-friendly venues filled with attractions and games...
RSK: Maybe even some indoor golf? Actually re-purposing might be a good thing. I would also look at housing on the sites as well.
Ken Notes: Any retail space will have to be a destination. McDonald`s figured this out decades ago with Playlands. Do not forget boomers are now in there 70`s and are looking for things to do other than run for president.

For the most part, several West Coast ports saw imports come in as usual last month, despite the spread of the coronavirus, according to recent data and port spokespeople.
But the contagion continuing to advance through February and subsequent months would likely spell major trouble for companies sourcing goods and supplies from China......more
RSK: We shall see what happens in a month or two. If the outbreak keeps ratcheting up this could be a huge problem.
ALBANY, N.Y. – With the Boy Scouts of America filing for bankruptcy protection Tuesday, dozens of camps and reservations owned by local Scouting councils throughout New York may soon face an uncertain future.
The organization is expected to liquidate its assets to settle thousands of lawsuits claiming sexual abuse that have been filed in recent months.
That puts 32 Scouting reservations – which account for over 35,000 acres – throughout New York at risk for sale, even though they are owned and operated separately from the national group.
Most of the properties sit on scenic lakefront properties......more
RSK: I am sure just about every state has BSA Camps on some prime property. This may be a long drawn out battle.

High Point Office Park is an 11-building, 217,418 square foot office park located in one of Madison, Wisconsin’s finest western locations.
Bed Bath & Beyond is kicking off 2020 with dozens of store closures across the US and Canada.
The company shared a list of stores closing with Business Insider, which reveals that it will be shuttering locations in 20 states across the US. These store closures come as the company looks to kick start turnaround efforts under the leadership of new CEO Mark Tritton.
Bed Bath & Beyond spokeswoman Jessica Joyce told Business Insider that some of these 41 stores have already closed in early 2020; the remaining stores will close in the next few months, she said...
RSK: Only one in Wisconsin and that is in Racine.

Inadequate backup plans and limited supply chains have put the automotive industry in an especially tenuous position for surviving the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, according to two analysts studying the situation. Should the situation extend close to the first day of Spring, the effects of that lack of preparedness could become especially acute.
The virus, first discovered in Wuhan, China on Dec. 31, 2019 has already killed 2,129 people as of Feb. 20 according to the World Health Organization. All but three of those deaths are in China, but the coronavirus has been detected in people in 27 countries. The outbreak has caused automakers and suppliers to curtail or cease production in China and South Korea due to a lack of parts and the desire to minimize the possibility of passing it along from interpersonal contact. ..
RSK: This may have a major impact on Industrial/Warehouse CRE sector as well....stay tuned!

Multiple companies are working on new technology that will make escalators and elevators more space-efficient and cost-effective.
Among the most eye-popping is Thyssenkrupp Elevator’s testing of cableless, multidirectional cars that move both vertically and horizontally through elevator shafts.
Thyssenkrupp`s MULTI product is the world`s first rope-free elevator that moves horizontally and vertically through and between buildings.
While traditional elevator systems rely on hanging cables or hydraulic systems underneath to gain lift, MULTI moves through the power of magnetic levitation much like train technology, Thyssenkrupp Elevator Head of Digital Services Jon Clarine told Bisnow......more
RSK: Very interesting and the technology is already here and working.
Up in Smoke? Marijuana & Real Estate
Up in Smoke? Marijuana & Real Estate The cannabis industry (and its real estate needs) is growing–leaving agents and clients in a risky position. The impact of marijuana use and production is a hot topic across the country that will only continue to intensify as more states push towards legalization. With our neighbors to the south legalizing marijuana, what does this mean for Wisconsin? This presentation examines pitfalls and risk reduction techniques for real estate agents.

The hot, wet state of Florida is often held up as the poster child for climate change and rising sea levels, yet its real estate market has boomed despite the related risks. Prices have risen and investment has poured in, even as the warning drumbeat about the potential downsides related to climate change and rising sea levels have grown steadily louder.
So it is not hard to see why the area’s real estate industry has chosen to ignore the warnings and keep building and investing, even in the areas where the danger is most acute. The science says one thing, but the money says another. The people who use real estate are not changing their behavior as a result of climate, so the industry isn`t either.
You don`t have to look hard to find analyses that highlight the particular risk faced by Florida, and its largest city, Miami, when it comes to the impact of climate change. The porous limestone underlying much of Florida makes the state particularly vulnerable to rising sea levels......more
RSK: The Wall Street Journal wrote an article on floating foundations that can rise and fall with the increased base water levels. It might just work like a floating pier or Giant house boat. Why not just use large obsolete cruise ships and tie them up at large docks and piers? Just thinking outside the box a bit...
