Thanks to a variety of economic forces, empty big boxes are a common sight in otherwise bustling retail areas. Brokers and developers who are trying to fill them up again have found new tenants — but it’s taken some creativity.
The question then becomes: what kinds of new programs are best suited to such huge spaces after they are vacated? What new uses will take maximum advantage, of not just the buildings, but also their parking lots and surrounding infrastructure?
Join Vince Corno and Jared Chalk as they discuss the evolution of retail and big box conversions in Hampton Roads and their creative solutions.
