Canadian Real Estate Forums – Land & Development Education Series

Speakers: Lisa Borsook

WeirFoulds is pleased to participate in the Canadian Real Estate Forums’ 2020 Land & Development Education Series. This year the seminars will take place online.

Partner Lisa Borsook will moderate the July 14 session on: How Permanent is the Impact of COVID-19 on Brick and Mortar Retail? What Forms of Development and Repurposing can Keep this Property Class Strong and Resilient?

Details:

No other real estate property category has attracted as much chatter in recent years as retail. Once a favourite of investors, this property class has been facing many increasing challenges for some time. But since COVID-19 has resulted in the temporary closure of malls, stores, and restaurants with a few exceptions, to what extent has the growth of e-commerce been accelerated? This panel will examine the current and future outlook for the retail real estate market and its implications for new development and repurposing existing properties.

  • As e-commerce grows out of necessity, what will get consumers returning to stores and malls?
  • Food experiences and interactive outlets were saving enclosed malls. What happens now?
  • How can landlords play a role in a retailer’s success and both achieve a win/win scenario?
  • How do you build new or repurpose existing retail assets that can weather the perfect storm of ecommerce, pandemics, sustainability and economic contraction?
  • How significant is the retail development pipeline across Canada? What will and won’t be built over the next 12 months as a phased reentry continues?

WeirFoulds is also pleased to sponsor the July 13 session.
