Retail Evolution Creates Opportunity

Retail owners and investors require sound advice and solutions more than ever as the industry and investment appetite evolves.

Madison Marquette’s research, market knowledge, relationships with retailers and nearly 30 years of experience as an investor in and service provider to the retail real estate sector gives us a unique perspective on the industry. We understand the sector is undergoing deep, but essentially healthy structural changes, and our team is ready with a full slate of solutions to meet any challenge.

The Retail Solutions experts at Madison Marquette serve as a consulting and leasing arm of our retail practice. The team collaborates with owners to reimagine a property through the transition from a time when people primarily shopped at malls. Now, experiences and gathering take center-stage and the industry is evolving to accommodate e-commerce. Strategies may include updated merchandising, recapturing common area for additional leasing, integrating new uses into an existing property or adding new life to a well-located site that acts as a catalyst for community investment and serves as a driver of economic development for the area.

Optimizing a community location and creating a landmark mixed-use destination requires a sound repositioning or redevelopment strategy designed to bring new life back into a property. Madison Marquette’s experience gives us a unique understanding of consumers’ tastes and preferences to create the right mix. We recognize owners and investors must provide the right space for retailers to successfully attract today’s the consumers. Retailers who embrace changes and develop innovative responses will likely drive retail success in the future.

We see significant opportunities for owners and investors, as the industry continues to absorb the tremendous demographic, technological and cultural forces pressuring all market participants. Madison Marquette’s seasoned leasing, investment and management team can evaluate an assets’ challenges and uncover hidden opportunities. We can tackle projects of all sizes and scope from a new development or re-development entailing both large landmark districts or smaller community-based projects.
