Ask the Expert: What is the top trend shaping Atlanta’s retail investment market?
“The latest trend is the limited new retail development supply coming to market. Outside of a few grocery-anchored centers and build-to-suit developments for expanding retailers, Atlanta as a whole is not seeing a lot of pure-play retail developments. Many of the major new developments in the Atlanta metro area have retail components, but they are being driven by multifamily or office components. This set of circumstances has led to a landlord market for existing owners because of the low supply of retail projects, which is keeping vacancy low.”
