ICSC Researcher published an article by architect Ronald A. Altoon highlighting some of the issues involved with repositioning distressed shopping centers. There is huge demand for distressed and under-performing assets in the Seattle area and the recession has created some opportunities to reexamine how consumers shop, how retail fits into the community and what the best use is for some of those problem properties.

Here is the abstract and the full link to the article below:

As the investment market for retail real estate moves beyond prime properties to secondary stock, purchasers of distressed assets would be advised to look beyond the financial fundamentals. A careful consideration of what is not in the numbers as well as pro-forma information will help to shape the optimum repositioning strategy. The author reviews potential issues, shares insights on several distinct reconstruction models and provides several case-study examples of successful project repositioning.
