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
