In this issue of Insights, we approach development from several angles. Our cover story looks at structured parking as a tool to enhance urban shopping centers, including design improvements to allow eventual repurposing to retail, office or other uses. Sharing some of what we’ve learned through decades of development and asset management, we discuss strategies to extend the life of parking garages.
A speculative industrial project in Florida illustrates the redevelopment potential at one of the hundreds of closed golf courses scattered across the country, and how prudent planning could offer inroads for ecommerce or other uses in high-density metros. And finally, we clarify a federal program that imports billions of dollars in low-cost investment capital annually, much of it available for commercial real estate projects.
We hope these insights inspire you to consider a wide spectrum of possibilities in your own real estate endeavors.
