NORTH PLAINFIELD, NJ—Locally based Matthew Harding, CCIM and president of Levin Management, says that the retail real estate industry is again in expansion mode, with strengthened tenant leasing activity boosting occupancies at well-located properties. Additionally, he says that a marked fluidity in anchor tenancies—as retailers rethink their footprints and seek expansion opportunities, and as new concepts continue to come online while others reach their end—is creating an ideal environment for repositioning and reinventing assets to better serve and succeed in their marketplaces.
