LAS VEGAS—As the retail landscape continues to shift and adapt to changing consumer behaviors and preferences, the role of lifestyle centers in shaping the retail experience has become increasingly prominent. Ahead of the upcoming ICSC Las Vegas retail conference, we had the opportunity to talk with Spencer Jordan, Senior Vice President of Leasing at Steiner + Associates, to discuss the evolving nature of lifestyle centers from a leasing perspective.

Steiner + Associates is a leading developer and manager of innovative retail and mixed-use destinations across the United States. With a focus on creating vibrant, community-centric spaces, Steiner + Associates has been at the forefront of redefining the retail experience.

In our conversation with Jordan, she emphasized the ongoing evolution of the lifestyle center experience, particularly from a leasing standpoint. One key aspect of this evolution is the re-tenanting of existing spaces to cater to changing consumer preferences. Jordan highlighted Steiner + Associates' current project of re-tenanting over 100,000 square feet of Easton's Fashion District with first-to-market retailers and restaurant groups. This strategic initiative, she says, reflects a proactive approach to meeting the evolving needs of consumers.
