Prevailing Trends in the Retail Market Panel Discussion:
An asset class of concern in recent years, given e-commerce and an evolving consumer – demand for quality retail is now surging throughout Wisconsin. A discussion between developers, brokers, and capital market professionals about prevailing trends in the market. Tenants are eager to expand but struggling to identify opportunities, financial pressures impacting development, rental rates on the rise, and an insatiable appetite by investors.
