The Tri State region is the most challenging real estate market in the country. Rental rates are high, space is limited and competition for available space is fierce. This session brings together some of the area’s largest shopping center owners, representatives of national brands who have succeeded in expanding in this market and a broker with extensive experience introducing franchises into the market. The goal of the panel is to explore how to approach this market, what to expect through the process, how to best approach Landlords and how to get to lease for spaces that meet your criteria.
