With the "clicks versus bricks" trend and a highly changing retail market, the business press is declaring a "Retail Apocalypse." Experts predict that by 2023 more than half of the U.S.'s 1,200 malls are expected to close or be substantially redesigned.

Even so, there's a rise in new design and construction opportunities in retail, and a projected growth in some submarkets such as food and grocery.

Join Taylor Coyne and Jason Wollum to examine the effects and opportunities of the changing retail market, including:

  • Which retail subtypes are growing or shrinking
  • What makes retail clients unique
  • How aging indoor malls are being repurposed and renovated nationally

Learn more about our speakers!

Taylor Coyne, Senior Research Analyst with JLL and co-author of A New Mall Rises: Retail Centers Renovate, Redevelop and Re-Tenant to Remain Relevant”, will give insight into retail clients and developers in this market sector—including what geographic regions and market subsectors are experiencing growth.

Jason Wollum, Retail Practice Director and Senior Vice President with Henderson Engineers, a top-rated retail engineering firm, will provide insight on how engineering firms can successfully work with retail clients and what makes them different from other private-sector clients and projects.
