Retail Pop-Up Stores Are a Good News/Bad News Trend for Landlords, Says Real Estate Expert Alex Radosevic, President of Canon Properties in Beverly Hills

Press Release – updated: Feb 14, 2020 07:54 EST

LOS ANGELES, February 14, 2020 (Newswire.com) – In the past few years, the pop-up store trend has helped revitalize many brick-and-mortar retailers, helping them burnish their brands and market products to a new generation of consumers seeking one-of-a-kind shopping experiences. Restaurants, boutiques, showrooms and galleries suddenly “pop up” in vacant storefronts, offering personalized experiences and unique entertainment, and then vanish as quickly as they appeared.
“For consumers, the pop-up shopping trend is a win-win, offering them unique experiences above and beyond the average brick-and-mortar visit,” said well-known industry insider Alex Radosevic. “But for landlords, temporary stores are a ‘good news/bad news’ scenario. Not all pop-up shops are created equal. If landlords are not careful, the costs of leasing to pop-ups can burst their profit margins.”
The Good News
For retailers, pop-up stores have become a go-to form of experiential marketing, as well as a low-risk way of testing new ideas and locations. For landlords, they are a good way to keep shopping areas more lively and increase foot traffic by continually offering something new for consumers to explore.
“Given the number of store closures in recent years, they can also prevent malls and shopping centers from looking like ghost towns,” said Radosevic, who owns and manages a real estate portfolio valued at more than $2 billion. “Empty spaces are not just aesthetically unappealing, they can damage the value of a property if they remain vacant too long.”
On the plus side, he added, landlords usually incur little risk by leasing space on a short-term basis, as long as the retailer has obtained the necessary permits from the city and mixes well with other tenants. “Pop-up shop leases usually last between six weeks and a year, with many retailers willing to sign month-to-month leases that could result in long-term tenancy.”
The (Potentially) Bad News
“On the minus side, rents for pop-up shops tend to be lower than those secured by traditional leases, sometimes as much as 40 percent below lease value. Therefore, it is important to evaluate how the pop-up tenant plans to use the space before negotiating the lease.
“From the property owner’s point of view, a pop-up concept works best when very few modifications are needed. Simple modifications are ideal; things that can be easily erected and then torn down. 
“Modifications are not a stumbling block to a deal because most pop-up tenants want an easy move-in/move-out phase, and landlords want little or no refit between tenants. As long as landlords do their homework in advance, leasing to pop-up tenants is usually a good bet.”
A member of the prestigious Forbes Real Estate Council, Alex Radosevic is the founder of Beverly Hills-based Canon Properties, a market leader in real estate investing and property management for many of the country’s wealthiest families and business owners.

Fewer Liquor Stores May Lead to Less Homicide

Press Release – updated: Feb 13, 2020 01:00 EST

PISCATAWAY, N.J., February 13, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Reducing the number of businesses in Baltimore that sell alcohol in residential areas may lower the homicide rate, according to new research in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.
As cities contemplate new zoning regulations regarding alcohol, the implications of those policies can have life-or-death outcomes.
“There is an ongoing violence epidemic in Baltimore, with recent years breaking records for number of homicides,” write the authors, led by Pamela J. Trangenstein, Ph.D., M.P.H., of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “This study suggests that there is potential to prevent violent crimes by reducing alcohol outlet density in Baltimore City.”
Baltimore is in the process of rewriting its zoning laws, and Trangenstein and colleagues patterned their research after the proposed zoning changes in that city as they relate to alcohol. Using a computer model that took into account homicide rates in Baltimore and previous research that shows 50 percent of violent crime can be attributed to alcohol access, the researchers analyzed three main policy changes.
The first would reduce by 20 percent all outlets that sell alcohol. The second would close liquor stores only in residential areas. The third would close outlets licensed as bars or taverns that were really operating as liquor stores.
After factoring in additional data related to homicide–such as socioeconomic status, population density, and drug arrests–the researchers’ computer modeling predicted that an overall reduction of alcohol outlets by 20 percent would cut homicides by 51 a year and save $63.7 million. Closing liquor stores in residential areas would eliminate 22 homicides annually, saving $27.5 million. But closing sham bars/taverns operating as liquor stores would reduce homicides by only 1 yearly, saving $1.2 million.
Although the 20 percent reduction would curtail the homicide rate the most, the authors determined that Baltimore would need to close such a large number of outlets that the policy would likely be considered “anti-business” and politically unfeasible.
Therefore, they concluded, the best option would be to close the 80 liquor stores in residential zones. Because Baltimore has over 1,200 licensed alcohol outlets, this means that closing only 1 of every 15 outlets would likely save 22 lives from among the more than 300 homicides in the city annually.
The authors note there is a recent trend in which some states and cities have adopted increasingly relaxed policies regarding the density of alcohol outlets. However, studies such as this one may help policymakers make more evidence-based decisions.
