North American Properties promises ‘future-proof’ retail

By Al Urbanski - 12/06/2017
Along with death and taxes, it could be said, the future is also inevitable, so it makes sense for a challenged retail industry to take stock of it.

That could be the underpinning of the “future-proof retail” approach North American Properties is touting at the ICSC New York Deal-Making Show this week. According to the company, the three large-scale projects featured at the company’s booth all have one thing in common: community.

The three projects, two new and one re-do, are:

Riverton: Billed as the largest mixed-use project in New Jersey history, Riverton will turn 418 acres of on the Raritan River into a full-fledged community (including marina) at one of the busiest highway intersections in the Garden State.

Revel: This project is bringing the people to the entertainment instead of vice versa. Anchored by Georgia's Infinite Energy Center, a leading event venue, Revel’s leasing agents won’t have to bother recruiting Cinemex or Dave and Buster’s. The destination will be completed Holiday 2019.

Colony Square: The Southeast’s first mixed-use project (built in 1968), Colony Square is being transformed into an arts-infused destination with 940,000 sq. ft. of office space, 260,000 sq. ft. of retail (including a food hall). a 466-room hotel, and 262 luxury residences in Midtown Atlanta. The first phase is set to open in July.
