The success of a commercial real estate project depends on multiple factors, including location, amenities, and construction design. But securing an anchor tenant for a commercial property can be the single most important factor in making a project a success since anchor tenants bring credibility to a retail center or an office building—increasing the attraction of the property and the character of a neighborhood. But getting a commercial tenant to commit to a long-term lease can be challenging for brokers. Negotiating the best lease agreement can be difficult without having to sacrifice rent breaks or major tenant allowances. Building owners often must craft leases that build in access to on-site eateries, technology features, wellness centers, and other on-site amenities. This panel of developers, real estate portfolio managers, and designers will discuss what kind of properties would get commercial tenants to sign a long-term lease. This session will explore what design attributes attract forward-thinking companies seeking healthy, energy-efficient, and high-quality experiences.
