Oliv Madison downtown development plan gets green light from City Council
A new form of affordable housing for university students is moving forward after the City Council approved an agreement with the developer earlier this week.

Now Oliv Madison, a proposed building from student housing developer Core Spaces, will go before the Plan Commission on Nov. 22.

The development, proposed for the 300 block of State Street, would make 10% of its beds available at a discounted rate through an agreement with the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the city. The building is expected to have approximately 1,100 beds...

Urban Is Coming Back Strong… And Better Than Ever Before
It has always seemed to me that you were either made for urban life or not. The Green Acres theme song plays in my mind that has the very stereotypical city lover, Eva Gabor, challenging her farm-loving husband: “New York is where I’d rather stay. I get allergic smelling hay. I just adore a penthouse view. Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue.”

RSK: You can see this happening in our market area. People want sustainable neighborhoods and subdivisions with goods and services nearby. You will also see the office market tighten up a bit in urban business parks rather than central business district. Workers want to ditch the downtown commute and work closer to where they live...

Survey identifies leading retailer holiday concern
One in four retailers is worried about the same supply chain issue as the holidays approach.

According to the “2021 State of Shipping Report” from multi-carrier e-commerce shipping software provider Shippo, shipping” was mentioned in 23% of responses from surveyed retailers to the question, “What keeps you up at night when it comes to readying your business for the 2021 holiday season?”

While the results do show that most retailers remain optimistic, more respondents expressed concern about holiday shipping than in 2020...

RSK: This is the ying and yang of online retailing vs brick and mortar in store buying. When people come to a physical store they are in a sense the delivery aspect. So, now when you rely on online shopping and delivery someone else has to do the delivery....and the supply chain wasn`t ready for it.

Here are the states where the most Americans quit their jobs in September when a record 4.4 million walked out

New data shows which states saw the most people quit their jobs in September when a record 4.4 million Americans walked out of work.

Overall, the labor shortage is slowly fading. Job openings dipped to 10.4 million in September, signaling more Americans took jobs that month. But record quits signal the workers are still in an unusual state of flux, and like many aspects of the pandemic recovery, the wave of walkouts is extremely uneven...

  • Hawaii, Montana, and Nevada faced the highest rates of workers quitting in September.
  • September saw fewer job openings while quits surged to another record high of 4.4 million.
  • The latest data shows some states are struggling to match unemployed workers with open jobs.

RSK: As could be predicted, Wisconsin lies in the middle of both jobs that were people quit and job openings.

CVS to close stores and create new formats in health push
CVS Health will close 900 stores over three years and launch new formats as part of its strategic push to create health destinations in the communities it serves.

The retailer, which operates over 9,000 locations, said in a release that it has evaluated “changes in population, consumer buying patterns and future health needs to ensure it has the right kinds of stores in the right locations.” This analysis led CVS to the decision that it was overstored in some areas. The chain plans to shutter around 300 locations a year over the next three years.  It will take an impairment charge in the fourth quarter of between $1 and $1.2 billion to write down associated costs.

CVS, which acquired insurance provider Aetna in 2018, has also experimented with new modes for meeting customer healthcare needs, such as telemedicine...

Macy’s plans to shut 10 department stores in January while delaying other closures

Macy’s said Thursday it is reconsidering when it will close the roughly 60 remaining open stores out of a batch of 125 that were on track to go dark by 2023.

The new industrial revolution: Automation and the revitalization of supply chains
As a result of growing e-commerce sales, the amount of goods transported through industrial facilities across the country has increased significantly. To capitalize on this growth and remain competitive, companies are modernizing their warehouses to increase operating efficiency and shorten delivery times. Furthermore, many industrial users are looking to automation as a tool to increase efficiency, promote warehouse employee safety and address rising labor costs due to the scarcity of warehouse workers across the country.

RSK: I think we need to have two separate categories for this article. To me industrial means some form of manufacturing and/or assembling. Warehouse is storage of those goods...kind of a Econ 201 course.

Fake landlord and deed fraud scams plague Detroit buyers and renters

Cash sales don`t provide safeguards like title searches that mortgage companies insist on when they`re financing a deal...

A glut of repossessed and abandoned houses in Detroit has contributed to a proliferation of “fake landlord” and deed fraud scams that are not only devastating the finances of many would-be renters and buyers but also creating headaches for owners who discover they’ve got tenants they didn’t choose.

Exacerbating the situation, mortgage lenders are cautious about extending credit and home prices are so low that most deals are for cash, putting Detroit residents at greater risk of buying or renting homes from scammers who don’t actually own them....

Is workplace flexibility a trap?

Companies have a long tradition of offering women workplace flexibility, only to then punish them—with fewer promotions or pay raises—for taking advantage of those benefits. Has the pandemic really changed that?

I wrote about this in a piece for Politico magazine this week, and it’s something I’m thinking about a lot. Because as the anecdotes about burn out pile-up and the data about women quitting their jobs roll in, what seemed like a blessing—the ability to work remotely—increasingly feels like a curse....
