    The declining prospects of North America’s shopping malls have been the subject of significant media attention, industry concern and public interest, and the current pandemic is contributing to the downsizing and bankruptcy of several large retailers and will likely hasten the closure of many traditional malls. However, while many of these properties may no longer support a traditional mall, they are often strong candidates for redevelopment.

    Based on the findings in “Repurposing Retail Centers” – a recent research report commissioned by the NAIOP Research Foundation – this webinar will examine how developers have revitalized properties by adding new uses, amenities and services, transforming struggling or closed malls into properties that serve the needs of their surrounding communities.
