Chapter Activities Keep Happening

Social distancing hasn’t stopped NAIOP Charlotte members from getting together (virtually) to continue to engage, learn, and socialize. Below are highlights from several recent member only events. A special thank you to our 2020 Cornerstone Sponsors. With their support, NAIOP Charlotte has been able to keep the conversations and information flowing during our time of social distancing.

March LWAL: Our first virtual Lunch with a Leader featured Taiwo Jaiyeoba and Alyson Craig from the City of Charlotte. Jaiyeobe and Craig shared how the city is adjusting to COVID-19 and keeping commercial development moving forward to maintain a healthy region.  If you were not able to participate in the webinar and would like to listen, click here to access the recording.

April DL Happy Hour: Our Developing Leaders are staying in touch and gathered via Zoom for a Friday afternoon Happy Hour last month. Ram Realty Services’ Rachel Krenz led a discussion on the developments in South End and later the conversation turned to how everyone is keeping busy during quarantine, recently watched shows and movies, and ideas about future DL events once mingling in person is possible.   

April LWAL: Last month, our Lunch with a Leader featured a panel of NAIOP Charlotte Board Members who shared perspectives on the commercial development market during the COVID-19 crisis. Panelists included Tom Coyle, Childress Klein; Alyson Craig, City of Charlotte; Steve McClure, Spectrum Companies; Patrick Pierce, Selwyn Property Group; and Chris Thomas, Childress Klein., Click here to access the recording.

About Charlotte Shared Streets

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing many aspects of how we live, move about our cities, and get essential physical activity. The City of Charlotte is launching Charlotte Shared Streets to support social distancing and pedestrian/bicycle safety amidst this new way of life. Shared Streets is intended to support outdoor exercise; create a safer environment for people walking, wheelchair rolling, biking, skateboarding, and rollerblading; and promote physical distancing of at least 6 feet by identifying low-speed neighborhood streets as “Shared Streets.”

Shared Streets are streets that are temporarily designated and signed as streets for walking, wheelchair rolling, biking, skateboarding, and rollerblading. Through traffic will not be permitted, but emergency vehicles, delivery vehicles, and residents who live on those streets will still be able to access the roads by motor vehicle. Residents should understand that the SHARED streets do not present an opportunity for residents to congregate and that they should continue following social distancing guidelines. Shared Streets are meant to foster solo physical activity and to connect people to destinations. This is a time to bring out the longboard, not the hammock.

The City of Charlotte will continue to monitor guidance from the CDC, the State of NC, and Mecklenburg County Public Health on outdoor recreation, transportation, and physical distancing, and will adjust this pilot program as needed.

  • What kinds of transactions are happening, or have deals stopped?
  • Will remote working, office shifts and coworking be the new norm to reduce exposure, particularly in the next year? 
  • How can industrial/logistics tenants prepare for supply and delivery challenges during future potential pandemics?
  • How are companies handling the financial crunch, and should we expect furloughs or layoffs?

Repurposing Retail Centers: Profiles in Adaptation, Repositioning and Redevelopment Webinar

The Advantage Series is an exclusive member benefit, delivering expert insights into the latest research to help you make informed business decisions.

The declining prospects of North America’s shopping malls have been the subject of significant media attention, industry concern, and public interest. Faced with competition from e-commerce and shifting consumer preferences for other retail formats and experiences, hundreds of traditional shopping malls have closed in recent decades, with many more closures expected in the coming years. However, while many of these properties may no longer support a traditional mall, they are often strong candidates for redevelopment.

This webinar will highlight how developers have revitalized properties by adding new uses, amenities, and services. Based on the findings in “Repurposing Retail Centers” — a recently completed study commissioned by the NAIOP Research Foundation — presenters will examine how developers are transforming struggling or closed malls into properties that fit within current market conditions and serve the needs of their surrounding communities. In addition to covering several redevelopment examples from across North America, the Highland Mall project in Austin, Texas, will serve as a principal case study that addresses a wide range of contemporary issues for repurposing mall properties.
