Case Studies of Successful Leasing Strategies
-- from Vacancy to No Vacancy

October 21, 2014


Much has been written and discussed about vacancy rates throughout the Northern Virginia commercial real estate market. Many building owners have come up with creative and successful ways to fill their space and reposition their projects. On Tuesday, October 21, NAIOP will host a breakfast seminar featuring some of our members' most innovative ideas. Our guest panelists will focus on topics such as targeted leasing programs, enhanced amenities, and spec suites. Included in the discussion will be JLL's Hi-Rise On-Line Leasing Program, Meridian's SAIC Campus Repositioning, Vornado's Crystal City Tech Initiative, and PS Business Park's Tyson's Corner Portfolio Spec Suites.

The Changing Face of Retail

November 6, 2014


What does the future hold for the retail industry? Throughout Northern Virginia and greater Washington, our malls and shopping centers are being transformed to meet the different ways that consumers buy goods and services. New "lifestyle" centers are popping up throughout the region. To be successful, bricks and mortar retailers and their landlords must find ways to adapt to e-commerce and changing social trends. On November 6, NAIOP Northern Virginia will host an expert panel comprised of retail owners and developers, a retailer and a retail futurist and consultant, who will discuss the ever evolving retail industry.
