Shopping Center Repositioning
During the life cycle of a shopping center, the underlying market dynamics are continually evolving.Rates of population growth (or decline), demographic characteristics, economic forces, and competitive factors all influence the relative health of a retail shopping destination and the geographic reach of its trade area. These variables largely determine the tenant mix and define the target market for a shopping center. The strategic challenge is to remain aligned with the optimal target market and customer base.
Over time, changes in these variables tend to undermine the retail store or shopping center. Here are some of the services focused on revitalizing a retail property, shopping center, or other real estate development.
