Luis Valenzuela Valenzuela: “Retail is not dead, just getting more creative.”

BUENA PARK, CA—Large retail/entertainment centers are becoming more popular as our society enters into a more technologically driven future and retail landlords need to focus on providing entertainment and experiences, M+D Properties’ EVP Luis Valenzuela tells GlobeSt.com. Retail tenants at the firm’s 400,000-square-foot retail-and-entertainment center at the Source here will open during the first quarter of 2017. The Source is a 600,000-square-foot mixed-use complex in Buena Park featuring a retail and entertainment complex; a five-story, 60,000-square-foot, class-A office building—which has opened—and a four-star Hilton hotel with 174 rooms.
