Ron Holmes moderated the recent BizNow DFW Real Estate Summit held at the Westin Galleria. It was a morning of information and good news! Highlights from the day’s discussions:
- Dallas has moved ahead of most of the nation’s biggest cities as a retail destination
- Mulberry of London will be Northpark Mall’s newest tenant (good timing for Mulberry as Northpark is trending toward $1.2B in sales for 2014)
- Shopping centers are evolving to provide more than just retailers by bringing in entertainment and other ways to keep shoppers there longer
- Customer demand for healthier/better-prepared alternatives to fast-food is driving a growth in fast casual chef-driven concept restaurants.
