    Episode 16 | Key Current Trends In Investment Sales: What's Blowing In The Wind?

    The Retail sector has proven its resiliency against several formidable challenges in recent years. But how does that add up from an investment perspective? In what ways are market shifts and changes affecting investment sales, considering both macro and micro effects? Some trends are positive while others are putting people and institutions on pause. Like swirling tornadoes, global events have been causing a stir around the U.S. acquisition investments market. Listen, as host Anjee Solanki speaks with guest David Amsterdam, President of U.S. for Capital Markets and Northeast Region Colliers, about U.S. Capital Markets and relationships with institutional clients. Added bonus: Learn more about this podcast’s very special guest, a noted Colliers expert.

    We can’t ignore the many issues impacting the psyche of the commercial property sector. Conversations have been ongoing for months about the rise in interest rates. In addition, the mid-April announcement from Amazon, the question of return-to-office, and the persistent war in Ukraine has people wondering how this will affect the industry. There has been a lot happening around the globe, but the anticipated deceleration just hasn’t occurred. This raises the question of how occupiers are going to operate in this new working environment.

    Join Anjee and David Amsterdam, as they discuss information gleaned at the recent ICSC regarding institutional clients and the U.S. Retail investment sale side. Global trends are expected to impact American Capital Markets. Tune in to find out how today’s Retail sector could stay safe from whatever blows our way.

    Episode 15 | Transforming Retail Assets to Mixed-Use Communities

    Episode 15 | Transforming Retail Assets to Mixed-Use Communities

    The neighborhood shopping mall just isn’t what it used to be. Such news could mean trouble for every community — or opportunity — depending on who’s involved. This drama of crossroads and choices is playing out across the country. America currently has too much space devoted to solely physical retail establishments. But that’s changing. And for many communities, the change is more than an opportunity — it’s transformation.

    Learn how creative redevelopment is happening in towns and cities from coast to coast with host Anjee Solanki as she speaks with her guests on the subjects of placemaking, repositioning, and the future of American retail. Colliers Senior Vice President for Planning & Placemaking Russell Whitehead, Colliers Senior Consultant for Urban Planning and Placemaking Advisory Chris Kuno, and Colliers Vice President of US Retail Repositioning Todd Scheffler — three top industry experts — speak on the question of how, why and when to reimagine yesteryear’s shopping mall.

    Consumer preferences have shifted while zoning laws are being changed, and now successful placemaking means creating true community hubs that are active at all hours of the day and year, not just during traditional shopping hours. Consumers want an integrated approach that creates a place, outside the home and office, where people can spend time, linger, socialize and spend money. The pressure is on to reimagine these centers into dynamic mixed-use places that serve multiple purposes and offer a variety of experiences. But expertise is required to do it right. Knowing the differences between placemaking and repositioning could mean the difference between accelerating success or diving into disaster. Listen, as these three experts explain how economically resilient redevelopment can breathe new life into that dying mall — transforming it into the fiercely beating heart of a refreshed and vibrant community.

    Episode 14 | A Legal Take on Retail CRE

    Episode 14 | A Legal Take on Retail CRE

    The uncertainties of pandemic-related challenges have exposed startling legal ambiguities in retail leases — affecting both landlords and tenants — and lease language is adapting as a result. Are you prepared to lease spaces affected by changes in omnichannels, qualified gross sales, shifting tenant demands, and more?

    Host Anjee Solanki asks San Francisco-based legal expert Ken Valinoti Esq. about three leasing issues that are keeping her up at night:


    What has been happening with force majeure? Ken describes how this formerly neglected clause may be redefined.
    Internet sales affect business in so many ways, including demand delivery purchases and onsite pickups. How can landlords argue for accurate gross sales numbers? Ken explains some recent examples.
    In uncertain times, how can tenants sign a lease with confidence? Ken’s insights into the changing legal landscape explains what’s arriving in contracts negotiated between retailers and landlords.

    If you’re entering into lease negotiations without legal counsel, you’ve just made your first big mistake. And if you miss this podcast, you’ll be making things worse. Tune in and learn what’s up in 2022 … for legal tactics that could affect you.

    Episode 12 | Metaverse: The New CRE Frontier

    Episode 12 | Metaverse: The New CRE Frontier

    Imagine sitting at a conference table with a coworker in London, another in Hong Kong, and a third in New York. Think of Zoom on steroids — implementing advanced technologies in augmented and virtual reality to put you inside what seems like a real room with your global contacts.

    That’s the metaverse. Much of it is already here, and if you’re not paying attention, you could be left behind. The good news is, it’s not too late to learn and prepare for potential opportunities that are arising. Listen now, as we welcome back Steve Weikal, Head of Industry Relations at the MIT Center for Real Estate. He’s joining us to discuss the intersection of the virtual world and the physical world. This month’s topic: How will the metaverse take over our physical and virtual space?

    Boundaries between reality and fantasy are blurring, as 3-dimensional immersive experiences break new ground when applied to all parts of CRE, from owner-occupier services to real estate development. Will virtual properties in metaverse worlds become the next CRE opportunity? Or will technology simply allow us to represent the physical world more realistically? It could be both! Learn more and find out how to stay ahead of the game.

    Keep a pulse on what’s happening by connecting with CRE Tech,  MIT Center for Real Estate propmodo and Colliers’ Retail Knowledge Leader,

    Episode 11 | Retail Data Translation

    Are you a self-proclaimed data geek? If you answered yes, you won’t want to miss out on our latest podcast on decoding retail data. We have a very special guest, Gregg Katz, Vice President of Real Estate Strategy at Creditntell. He oversees the retail advisory platform and is focused on market dynamics trends and consumer shopping behaviors. In this episode, we ask Gregg, once you have the data, how do you put it into actionable next steps and what should you focus on during the first client meeting?

    Understanding the roles of retailers, landlords and brokers is critical and this is what allows you to connect and better understand both sides of the equation and gives you the ability to answer specific needs. You also need to let the client guide the conversation – we get tied up in the transaction or showing off our tool’s capabilities and we forget what’s more important: the client’s needs!

    Gregg also reveals a data challenge he had and how not only he overcame the obstacle but came up with a successful solution for the client.
