NEWPORT BEACH, CA—The Woodmont Co., a Fort Worth-based national retail real estate company specializing in brokerage, development and management, has expanded its operations into Southern California with the launch of a new office here. Joseph Williams, SVP for the firm, will oversee the new office, which is located at 620 Newport Center Dr. He tells us the move was an opportunity to expand the company’s expertise in multi-market tenant representation while providing a local delivery platform to serve its growing California portfolio. Here’s more from our exclusive chat with Williams. What was behind Woodmont’s expansion into Southern California? Williams: The new office in Newport Beach will focus on retail-tenant representation with an emphasis on providing value-add services for entertainment, health and fitness, and fast-casual restaurant concepts. The office will also oversee leasing at the Woodmont Co.’s Bakersfield Gateway project.  The move to Southern California came about as an opportunity to expand our expertise in multi-market tenant representation while also providing a local delivery platform to serve our expanding California portfolio. We remain focused on best-in-class, growth-oriented concepts delivering experience and entertainment as well as health and fitness—key areas in the ever-changing retail industry. With many retail concepts being founded on the West Coast, and then expanding into Texas following the growth and migration in that market, Woodmont is uniquely qualified to assist in rollout strategies leveraging our coverage in both markets coupled with our national development platform.
