Changes in consumer preferences, population dynamics, and real estate requirements have created opportunities for mall owners to respond with new design concepts, retail formats, public space, and amenities.
Re-positioning and adaptive reuse of space, enhancement of experiences and entertainment, and intensification of uses can be witnessed around the country as well as in the Valley.
These and other topics will be discussed when ULI Arizona presents its Main Program, “Creating a New Identity for Malls: One Size Doesn’t Fit All.”
The event is scheduled for April 26 from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Harkins Camelview at Fashion Square, 7014 E. Camelback Rd., Scottsdale. Member registration is $75, private; $55, public/under 35/non-profit; and $40, student. Non-member registration is $100, $75, and $60.
Moderating the event will be David Larcher, President, Vestar. Panelists include Warren Fink, COO, Carlyle Development Group; Sharon Harper, President and CEO, Plaza Companies; and Scott Nelson, Senior Vice President, Real Estate Services, Macerich.
