On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Jan 10, 2014.

Fans of retailer Anthropologie will be happy to learn that the store will not be relocating from its Rittenhouse Square location. The purveyor of women’s clothing and household accessories has reportedly negotiated a new lease with Philadelphia Urban Investors LP that should be a win-win for both landlord and tenant.

A small piece of your commercial real estate jargon decoder ring

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Jan 6, 2014.

It struck us recently that commercial real estate’s buzz words and acronyms and secret handshakes can be both a curse and a blessing. The curse, of course, lands on industry outsiders and people new to the business; they are left wondering what the heck is going on. The blessing is that once you grasp the terms, meetings with city planners will make more sense and negotiations with contractors, suppliers and, yes, the city will go more smoothly and a little faster.

Everything old is new again at Philly’s Franklin Mills Mall

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Dec 30, 2013.

The Franklin Mills Mall was one of the first outlet malls in the country. Its location in Northeast Philadelphia was unique among outlet malls when it opened in 1989. Most outlets were far outside city limits in converted manufacturing facilities, but Franklin Mills was just off Interstate 95. Its size — 1.7 million square feet — made it a destination for tourists; its proximity made it a destination for locals.

Tech affects commercial space: ‘Industrial’ is the new ‘office’ p2

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Oct 18, 2013.

Economists are spending their time this week trying to figure out how much the federal shutdown cost the country. Before the shutdown, though, at least one economist was figuring out how the commercial real estate market has changed over the past few years. As we said in our last post, the economist, a speaker at an Urban Land Institute symposium, suggests that it is time to stop blaming the slow recovery, especially in the office market, on the recession.

Tech affects commercial space: ‘Industrial’ is the new ‘office’

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Oct 17, 2013.

The time has come to stop blaming the recession for the slow commercial real estate market, according to an economist presenting at an Urban Land Institute event. The office market has been improving, but incrementally. Office space absorption is down about 40 percent from before the recession, and it is unlikely to recover completely. Brokers, agents and customers need to embrace the new normal, it seems, and the new normal has a lot to do with advances in technology.

If you can’t stand the heat, get away from the ‘Solar Death Ray’ 2

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Sep 24, 2013.

Walking down the streets of Philadelphia, you may feel the steady gaze of William Penn looking down from atop City Hall. Chances are good, though, that Penn’s stare will not melt your car or set fire to your welcome mat on a sunny day. Those are feats that only 20 Fenchurch Street can lay claim to.

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Sep 22, 2013.

Philadelphia developers, there is a lesson for you in the story of a new building in London. The 37-story building at 20 Fenchurch Street in the city’s financial district was originally dubbed the “Walkie Talkie,” in honor of its unusual shape. As the seasons changed, and the sun lowered on the horizon, that unusual shape has earned the building a new nickname: the fryscraper.
