SAN DIEGO—Concerned about investing in retail properties as the sector remains forced to create new draws for consumers in light of e-commerce? Don’t be, Spencer Levy, head of research and senior economic advisor for CBRE, told attendees at Wednesday’s CREW San Diego lunch event, “2018 Economic Insights.” Levy told the crowd during the lunch event at the University Club atop Downtown San Diego’s Symphony Towers that the sector has been reinventing itself for millennia, and it will continue to do so, meaning now may be the time to buy more retail properties.
