“The use of Forbearance Agreements in the Current Economy”

W

ith the increasing number of commercial real estate loans in default, in many instances, the best exit strategy for a lender is to grant a defaulting borrower more time to work with the property to attempt to secure more leases, sell the property or find another lender or partner to provide financing and satisfy the defaulting loan. This is especially the case when the borrower is a reputable and qualified real estate developer and has a strong management and leasing team. In such a situation, the lender and the borrower should enter into a forbearance agreement, which grants the borrower an extension of time to cure any defaults and preserves the lender ’s rights and remedies under the loan documents. A forbearance agreement is an agreement between a lender and a borrower that obligates the lender to refrain from pursuing remedies for existing defaults under a loan for a certain period of time (called the “forbearance period”) in consideration for certain obligations by the borrower. During the forbearance period, the borrower is obligated to attempt to cure any existing defaults, satisfy other conditions to improve the

performance of the secured asset and, in some instances, sell the asset or secure a new loan or other financing so that the existing loan can be satisfied. Forbearance agreements can also include certain modifications to the loan changing the monthly payments, changing the interest rate, and providing for certain fees to be paid to the lender. A lender may attempt to have the borrower acknowledge certain facts related to the loan in a forbearance agreement, including the outstanding balance of the loan, specific defaults under the loan that have occurred, and that the representations and warranties that were made in the original loan agreements remain true and correct. In addition, a lender may attempt to cause the borrower to waive all defenses and claims (including

lender liability claims) that the borrower may have against the lender, as well as release the lender from all liability that the lender may have to the borrower related to the loan. As a borrower, it is important to try to restructure the loan to include terms that are more manageable in light of the income from the property and the current economy, while still providing an acceptable debt service and an acceptable rate of return to the lender. Also, it is important to limit the waivers of defenses and the release of the lender’s liability as much as possible so as to protect any claims that the borrower might have in the future. Scott C. Butler, Esq. is a principal in the Real Estate Business & Finance group of Kaplin Stewart in Blue Bell, PA. n

OLUMBIA, MD — Liberty Property Trust, which owns and manages more than 3.1 million s/f of office, flex and industrial space in Maryland, announced that it executed 54 new, renewal and expansion lease agreements totaling 591,963 s/f of space in 2010. “During the last year we could feel the momentum beginning to build,” said Lisa Sullivan, vice president and city manager, Liberty Property Trust. “Our team worked together to find opportunities, and many new leases hinged on our being able to offer flexibility, strong customer service and quick transactions. “Tenants also continue to show that customer service and value are priorities in their real estate decisions, which is why we were pleased that more than half the agreements were renewals by existing tenants.” The year included several important milestones: • In May, Liberty received the award for “Flex Building of the Year” from the Maryland Chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP) for its Highpoint 100 Building in Hanover. • In October, Liberty was honored by BOMA (Building Owner’s and Manager’s Association) at its Maryland Chapter ’s “Building of the Year” ceremony. Two Liberty buildings – the newly renovated 10 North Park in Hunt Valley and the recently opened Highpoint 100 in Hanover – received Awards of Excellence for property management. • Also in October, Liberty announced that five of its class A office buildings had been honored with Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR designations for efficient energy use.

BETHESDA, MD — Crossbeam Capital LLC, an institutional real estate investment fund manager, has merged with Concierge Asset Management, LLC, a 40-year-old Houston-based investor, redeveloper and manager of apartment communities. The combined company, Crossbeam Holdings, LLC, will focus on acquiring multifamily communities throughout the U.S. and redeveloping them to institutional quality. The merger formalizes a partnership established in 2010 which acquired seven multifamily communities including closing five properties in December alone. “Crossbeam Capital and Concierge Asset Management were two successful, independently-run companies,” says Richard K. Devaney, formerly a principal and chief invest-

ment officer of Crossbeam Capital and now chairman and chief executive officer of the new company. “We were profitable and generating consistent returns for our investors. However, as we began working on acquisitions together, we recognized how compatible our two organizations were. “Crossbeam brings strong, seasoned investment management to the new venture with expertise in acquisitions, capital markets, asset management and investor relations,” added Devaney. “This, combined with Concierge’s four decades of experience in spotting emerging markets, identifying and acquiring value opportunities, then repositioning and managing those assets, gives us a significant edge, we believe, in this extremely competitive multifamily marketplace.” n

ny headquartered in Columbia, with offices in Lutherville, and Washington, D.C. Rebranded and operating as Colliers International, the firm joins an organization of

15,000 employees operating out of more than 480 offices in 61 countries with operating revenues of nearly $2 billion. “Aligning with Colliers International is the next logical

step in our firm’s growth,” said Timothy Hearn, CEO and principal of Colliers InternationalBaltimore Region and former CEO of Hearn Burkley. “Last year’s acquisition of Corridor

Reznick and our continuing investment in the business ideally positions us to become an important contributor to Colliers International on a local, regional and national level.” n

DelMarVa People on the Move Of Newmark Knight Frank

HHA names Ken Parker broker of the year — 2010

N

ew C astle , D E — Harvey, Hanna & Associates, Inc. (HHA) announced that Ken Parker of Newmark K n i g h t Frank has been selected as its “2010 Broker of the Ken Parker Year.” In the midst of a challenging real estate market, Parker successfully negotiated the lease for Tri-Starr Management Services, Inc. (TMSi), to lease 98,159 s/f of warehouse space at the Twin Spans Business Park

in New Castle, Delaware. Parker brings versatility and experience to the Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) family. With his educational background in industrial and systems engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), coupled with his 15+ years experience in global warehouse operations, Parker enjoys his relatively new career as a real estate broker. Parker is specifically experienced in warehouse design, operations, and functionality – thereby adding value to many NKF clients and prospects. NKF provides client-focused real estate advisory services through

world-class intellectual capital and resources across the globe. “Ken impressively leveraged his warehouse operations expertise to reduce the cycle time in putting this deal together,” said Thomas J. Hanna, vice president, HHA. In recognition of Parker’s achievement, HHA will donate $3,000 in the name of Newmark Knight Frank to The Delaware KIDS (Kids In Distressed Situations) Fund. This charitable fund was established by HHA to support a wide array of causes for local youth, including support for hunger, shelter, and tuition scholarships. n

Long & Foster companies organize sales rally CHANTILLY, VA — Several Long & Foster companies teamed up to host a rally and team-building event that benefitted the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City, NJ. Teams of employees from Long & Foster Settlement Services, Prosperity Mortgage, Long & Foster Insurance and Home Service Connections came together for a sales rally and team-building scavenger hunt across Atlantic City. As the teams completed various challenges, they earned all of the pieces necessary to build a child’s bicycle. Once all teams completed their mission to obtain the parts to build a bike, the completed projects—30 bikes in all—were donated to the Boys & Girls Club. “We were very excited about the opportunity to work with The Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City to provide bikes to under-privileged kids,” says Mike Maddiex, president of Long & Foster Settlement Services. In addition to making the bike donation to local children, organizers aimed to create an event designed to

foster additional cooperation and synergy among Long & Foster’s affiliate companies as they work together to benefit the Long & Foster Real Estate sales associates they serve. “We were also excited to get our groups together for this event,” continues Maddiex. “Team building and idea sharing on how to put the best service team together for Long & Foster agents is on the forefront of our agenda in 2011. This was an all-around great event.” “We were able to achieve two important things by participating in this event,” adds Tim Wilson, president of affiliated business for Long & Foster. “We worked together as a team rather than representatives from each of the separate affiliate companies, and we were able to construct and donate a bike for a boy or girl who really needs one. The energy at this event was infectious.” Long & Foster announced that the company has launched a wireless internet service called OPENLink. This service will provide wireless internet connection at Long

& Foster offices at no charge for customers and sales associates. Long & Foster’s development of OPENLink reflects the company’s commitment to constantly providing the latest products, services and technology for sales associates and customers. OPENLink compliments the company’s iPhone, iPad and soon-to-be-released Droid apps, and empowers agents and customers to be seamlessly connected in any office, on any platform, ensuring an enhanced real estate experience. “We know that the bestequipped and best-trained agents in the market will serve as the best real estate advisors to consumers,” explains Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and chief operating officer for The Long & Foster Companies. “Leveraging technology to make sure consumers have the information they need to make informed buying and selling decisions with confidence is just one of many ways Long & Foster positions itself as the brokerage of choice in the Mid-Atlantic region.” n

Cushman & Wakefield’s Metropolitan Area Capital Markets Group arranges $48 million sale

L

ONG ISLAND, NY — DSW Plaza at Lake Grove has traded from Centro Properties to Prestige Properties, in a $48 million retail sale that will register as one of Long Island’s largest for 2010, announced Cushman & Wakefield, Inc. The commercial real estate services firm’s Metropolitan Area Capital Markets Group, based in East Rutherford, NJ, orchestrated the transaction. Prestige Prop-

erties is a Manhattan-based real estate developer, property manager and investor of retail properties focusing in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic markets. DSW Plaza is a fully leased, community shopping center totaling 251,222 s/f. “Retail investment opportunities have been scarce throughout the tri-state area this year, and even more so on Long Island,” said Cushman

DSW Plaza

& Wakefield’s Gary Gabriel, who handled the sale with team members Andrew Merin, David Bernhaut and Jared Zimmel. “That being the case, this property’s fantastic location made it a very compelling purchase. We received a significant number of offers from both public companies and private investors. Prestige Properties ultimately distinguished itself among the pack.” ■

SHOPPING CENTERS H2M Group conducting remediation

Thomas Ashbahian designs 62,174 s/f ShopRite in NJ YCKOFF, NJ — Inserra Supermarkets’ redevelopment plans for a 7.6-acre underutilized site in the heart of Wyckoff, which has been vacant for more than 10 years, are progressing. The Mahwah based supermarket chain plans to raze an uninhabitable 53,000 s/f building to develop a modern, customerfriendly 62,174 s/f ShopRite within the Township’s central business district. Architectural plans were unanimously approved by the Wyckoff Design Review Board and refined based on feedback from the Township Planning Board. The development team also has introduced site plans and environmental testimony. “The architectural character and the visual aesthetics of the new building will compliment the Shopping District. Wyckoff is a unique community that affords residents a variety of places to live, work, shop and enjoy leisure activities within their own neighborhood,” said Thomas Ashbahian, project architect and a 23-year resident of Wyckoff. The proposed building, at the intersection of Greenwood and Wyckoff avenues, reflects the historic character and architecture of the surrounding neighborhood. Features include the addition of architectural gables to the front façade, primarily facing Greenwood Avenue. This detail also repeats on the West Main Street façade in lieu of the previously proposed clock towers. Each gable is highlighted by horizontal solid siding and roof shingle, typically used in residential designs, to complement the two-tone red-brick exterior façade. Brick quoins also have been incorporated at each corner of the building to invoke a more traditional architectural motif. Currently, the site is undergoing a NJ State Department of Environmental Protectionapproved remediation being conducted by Parsippany-based H2M Group Inc. Measures have included the implementation of soil vapor extraction and in-situ chemical oxidation technologies, which is nearing completion. The redevelopment and environmental program will restore the unproductive parcel to its previously defined supermarket use. In addition to being vacant for an extended period of time, the structure and its existing

ShopRite 431 parking spaces have a significant green-space deficit that is being addressed by the redevelopment. Before the A&P, Stop & Shop occupied the building when the Township boasted several supermarkets, including Grand Union at Boulder Run, Kings on Clinton Avenue and Foodtown at Cedar Hill Avenue. Today, the Township

only has one supermarket. “The proposed ShopRite will fill a significant gap by offering Wyckoff residents a new choice for shopping with competitively priced groceries as well as nonfood items,” said James Jaworski, Esq., who is representing Inserra Supermarkets in its application before the Township Planning Board. ■

Overview of 2010: In hindsight, 2010 was strong year for the retail investment sale market. As a team, 80 percent of our transactions closed in the second half of 2010 as financing eased and investors gained confidence again. As an industry, year over year, dollar volume climbed 50 percent to $33 billion as financing came available for larger projects yet transaction velocity exhibited a more modest rise of 15.4 percent. An overwhelming majority of the velocity was on the sales of single tenant net lease retail properties with investment grade tenants which saw about 100 bps drop in cap rates from January to December. Institutional quality shopping centers continue to trade actively and demand is strong from a diverse pool of buyers. There was very limited velocity in the sale of “B” and “C” shopping centers in 2010 due in part to a disconnect in pricing and worries related vacancies. 2011 Outlook: In 2011, investors should take stock of two fundamental points: the worst is over, and capital markets have improved faster than expected. Higher returns require the appropriate degree of risk-taking, and approaching 2011, with the same tenor of wariness present a year ago, will likely lead to lost opportunities. Many investors failed to pull the trigger over the past twelve months, expecting an RTC-style, deeply discounted property market or prolonged deterioration of the U.S. economy. The odds of either occurrence have further diminished Current conditions for retail properties vary sharply by location. Market’s like Washington, D.C. and New York City continue to rank first and second respectively in Marcus & Millichap’s 2011 National Retail Research report. This should come as no surprise. The performance and value of every shopping center lies along a spectrum and is a function of geography in most cases. Infill shopping centers, particularly those in supply-constrained areas and proximate to high population densities, remain a world apart from newly-built power centers conceived just footsteps from busted housing projects. We expect a moderate decline in vacancy to materialize in 2011, with more substantial improvement anticipated in 2012. By way of example, the Baltimore area has already seen early signs of this trend as the area’s vacancy rate has declined in the last six months from 6.6 percent to 5.8 percent, according to MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services, LLC. In the near term, core neighborhood/community centers and strip centers in infill areas will retain their top-performer ranks as measured by occupancy, rents and, therefore, values. Specialty centers, Class B malls and newly-built power centers will continue to suffer from cautious retailers and a hesitant consumer. Generally speaking, rent reductions have slowed, but owners will continue struggling to regain pricing power, particularly as leases roll over. Occupancy levels must improve well beyond what is expected in 2011 to stimulate broad-based rent growth. In 2011, we expect sales volumes to increase 25 percent to 30 percent in 2011, approaching levels more on par with historical norms. We expect that the tight band between best-in-class property cap rates and interest rates, along with growing confidence in the economy, will move investors to look at lower quality properties. Marcus & Millichap’s National Retail Research report expects the 10-year Treasury yield range-bound between 3.5 percent and 4.0 percent and that spreads will tighten moderately into the 200 basis points and 300 basis points range depending on the asset.

Overview of 2010: Overview of 2010: The year 2010 started out as a continuation of 2009 however it seemed to get head downward as the year progressed. More and more of our current tenants seemed to be in desperate need of Bill Klein assistance, and few new business were starting up. That being said, we renewed and replaced over 25 tenants in our portfolio and gained several good listings. We have been successful with the sale of a large liquor store and have developed several choice listings of other great businesses in Ocean and Atlantic counties. After a long battle with our host community of Tinton Falls, we succeeded in ending the year by moving into our new office building which is the first of our new office park.

Although transaction volume is not where it was in the boom Peter Gallicchio

of 2005 to 2007, Remco ended up with a flurry of transaction closings in the second half of 2010, which resulted in Remco’s

highest production year since its inception in April of 2008. During 2010, Remco had the opportunity to represent a variety of real estate which included landlord and tenant representation assignments, as well as investment properties, and restaurants. Some of those assignments included the leasing of a 4,755sf end cap at Cheesequake Commons in Old Bridge, NJ to Ciro Pizza Café, the marketing

out, tenants that are positioned for expansion are reacting much faster than in 2009, as they watch their competition swiftly secure prominent locations.

TOP RETAIL DEALS 2010 Marcus & Millichap Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services Marcus & Millichap of Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia; and New Jersey 2010 Total Sales (Dollar Volume): $594,421,813 2010 Total Sales (# of Transactions): 146 Overview of 2010: An economic recovery that gained momentum during the year helped stabilize retail property operations in large Middle Atlantic metro areas in 2010, setting the stage for continued recovery in occupancy and rents in ensuing periods. More than 118,000 jobs were added in the six-state region last year, supporting consumer spending and more frequent trips Michael J Fasano Spencer Yablon David S. Feldman to retailers. Store closures grew less frequent as the year progressed, VP/Regional VP/ Regional Regional Manager, and many retailers took advantage of reduced rents and newly available Manager, DC Office locations to expand. As a result, positive net absorption of 8 million s/f Manager, NJ Office Philadelphia Offi ce was recorded in the Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Jersey and Washington, D.C., markets last year, representing one-seventh of the nationwide increase in occupied space during 2010. Vacancy rates fell in each major market, although rent growth trailed the improvement in space demand. Across the region, investment activity was dominated by sales of single-tenant assets net-leased to highly rated corporate tenants, with some sales of stabilized, well-positioned shopping centers occurring throughout the year. 2011 Outlook With job growth expected to accelerate in step with improving business conditions in many industries, retail property performance in the region will also strengthen. Among the 44 markets ranked in Marcus & Millichap’s National Retail Property Index, three of the major mid-Atlantic markets fall within the top 12 (Baltimore is not covered in the index). Marcus & Millichap ranks Washington, D.C., as the top retail property market, and the entire mid-Atlantic region will retain its position as one of the strongest sections in the country. Strong, steady gains in space demand, minimal competitive threats from new construction, and resurgent rent growth characterize the markets in the mid-Atlantic region. Nationwide, new store openings will generate a solid 0.7 percent increase in occupied space, or demand, during 2011. Washington, D.C., will record 1.2 percent growth in this key metric, while Baltimore, New Jersey and Philadelphia will grow at the U.S. rate. In each market, the vacancy rate will decline for a second consecutive year. National chains will continue to expand selectively, while liberalized guidelines for loans guaranteed by the Small Business Administration will stimulate growth among small local and regional merchants. Anchor and junior anchor space in most of the region continues to perform reasonably well, while recently announced closures by Borders will have a minimal impact at the market level. Construction of new properties remains at low levels due to limited access to construction financing. In the Washington, D.C., metro, only 1.4 million s/f of new space will come online this year, compared with an annual average of 2.5 million s/f during the last decade. In Philadelphia, only 400,000 s/f of new space will be placed into service. For the next two years, property construction will likely remain limited to fully leased single-tenant concepts, which will have no effect on vacancy rates. The significant lull in construction will provide owners of existing properties a nearly unprecedented opportunity to restore occupancy and rents to pre-recession levels. Rents in the region will finally start to rise at approximately midyear as vacant spaces fill. Nationwide, asking rents will climb 1.2 percent and effective rents will rise 1.8 percent. Local markets will also post gains, with increases in the D.C. metro and Philadelphia projected to exceed the U.S. rate of growth. Expected rent increases will help stabilize and ultimately raise property NOIs and stimulate a greater number of shopping center transactions during the year. Single-tenant, net-leased properties will continue to receive strong bids from less risk-tolerant investors, and some buyers will expand their search for suitable investments to secondary markets in the region.

Endows ICSC Undergraduate Award for Villanova University

Kieran P. Quinn donates $25,000 to ICSC Foundation

N

EW YORK, NY — The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Foundation today announced that Kieran P. Quinn, managing director, Guggenheim Partners and chairman of the ICSC Foundation, donated $25,000 to the ICSC Foundation to endow the Kieran P. Quinn Villanova University Undergraduate Award. Beginning in 2011, the ICSC Foundation will be awarding a Villanova undergraduate student with $1,000 to be used to pay the recipient’s qualified tuition and related expenses. The student must be a junior or senior, with at least one remaining semester, who has declared a major in real estate or a related field. The student may be studying either full or part time.

“My gift to the ICSC Foundation helped me benefit two institutions that are very

important in my life,” stated Quinn. “A mission of the ICSC Foundation is to attract talent to the retail real estate industry and what better place to be looking for future members of our industry than Villanova University. Villanova has built a first class School of Business and with the addition of the DiLella Center for Real Estate, students are being exposed to all facets of our industry. My gift will support an ICSC undergraduate scholarship at Villanova for many years and I hope to meet future leaders from Villanova in the retail real estate business,” Quinn added. “Kieran leads by example and is now creating a legacy for both ICSC and Villanova,” said John Crossman, president of Crossman & Company and co-chairman of the ICSC Foundation scholarship committee. “I hope this will encourage other industry leaders to rise to the occasion and match what Kieran did for

their own schools,” Crossman added. Quinn, a long time member of the International Council of Shopping Centers, wants to leave a substantive legacy

and contribute to the next generation of students interested in studying retail real estate at his alma mater, Villanova University. The purpose of the award is entirely charitable. ■

ICSC One-on-One Mentoring Program surpasses 1,000 meetings NEW YORK, NY — The International Council of Shopping Centers’ mentoring program has surpassed 1,000 meetings. The ICSC one-on-one mentoring program was originally instituted as a component of the Reconnect Pavilion which was launched at RECon in 2009. The individual mentoring sessions were the most successful component of the initiative, with 200 sessions taking place during its debut. “The Reconnect Pavilion was designed to serve industry professionals in transition – either looking for a new job or considering a career change within

the industry – primarily over the course of the recession,” said Michael P. Kercheval, president and CEO of ICSC. “With the economic recovery beginning to take hold, it was clear that the Reconnect Pavilion had served its purposes and was no longer necessary, however, the overwhelming success of the individual mentoring sessions could not be ignored as our members proved there was clearly a need for this service. As such, ICSC decided to allow the mentoring program to take on a life of its own and so we incorporated it into a few of our larger conferences,” added Kercheval. ■

The Highlands at Plaza Square County. Developed in 2004 as the trophy apartment community in the City of New Brunswick, The Highlands

is situated in a high-visibility location along Route 18 amidst a burgeoning “24/7” downtown that is convenient

to transportation (Routes 18 and 1 and Interstates 287 and 95, train/bus station for New Jersey Transit and Amtrak), diverse employment, education (Rutgers University and The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey), the arts (George Street Playhouse and Crossroads Theatre) and a host of restaurants and other lifestyle amenities. Jeff Dunne had the following comments on the sale: “The Highlands is another example of the development partnership success exhibited by PREI Roseland, Applied and Matrix. Manulife is poised to benefit from the ongoing transformation of downtown New Brunswick into a ‘24/7’ location with burgeoning tenant appeal. This is a strong first entry for Manulife into the New Jersey Class A apartment market.” ■

MAREJ COM By Drew Barile, Kohl Asset Management

The future of multi-family retirement living development

P

assage of the healthcare reform bill is already having a ripple effect on the senior retirement community business model – despite the legislation’s projected 10year transition period. Dealing with Drew Barile the healthcare crisis requires a new level of agility among owners and operators. Because of the uncertainties related to government subsidy issues, providers are now pursuing more sustainable retirement communities, senior apartments and age-restricted housing projects. As a result, the movement toward developing senior apartments and age-restricted communities – without healthcare services – is gaining greater momentum. More and more people are interested in renting apartments in an active adult multi-family setting. According to a recent article in The New York Times, there are indications of a growing market for 55+ rental complexes in this post-recession era. Rather than owning a home, age-restricted senior apartments have risen to the forefront in terms of preference and affordability. These fee-for-service rental properties are popular because they include an array of onsite amenities and à la carte services. Today’s seniors, who are healthier and living longer than earlier generations, seek good price values and an abundance of hotel-like common spaces. There is a strong desire for a live/work component as well. To accommodate these lifestyle requirements, new

properties feature separate community spaces based on function. Business offices, spacious libraries and expansive family rooms with comfortable furniture provide a full complement of gathering areas for tenant use. Spacious, well-appointed apartments with modern layouts have replaced the traditional garden apartment of yesteryear. Classic architectural elements and common areas on multiple floors break up hallways to evoke an interior neighborhood concept. In urban settings, commercial space is added for a mixed-use element. Coffee shops and dry cleaning services are not only convenient, residents benefit from interactive communal living that extends beyond their own apartments. This promotes a more interactive, intergenerational environment that contributes toward marketing initiatives and attracts positive attention to the innovative product. Newer properties, and those on the drawing board, also incorporate significant outdoor space because today’s older adults enjoy leisure and fitness activities. For example, Kohl Asset Management routinely integrates large patios and recreation areas into its designs. Some age-restricted apartments include outdoor kitchen areas and grilling options for resident use. Tenant requests also range from rooftop gardens to covered spaces for multiseason use. In addition, there has been an increased demand for passive exercise areas, like functional lap pools, in lieu of traditional gyms. Because of the uniqueness of this product in terms of design, concept, strategy and tactical applications, Kohl Asset Man-

agement has seen a significant number of matriculations from other communities at its newly opened age-restricted and active adult communities. Approximately 25 to 30 percent of residents relocate from competing communities within the first six months of absorption. The present-day senior population is highly educated and becoming more aware of their consumer power, health and longevity. This demographic, which now includes Baby Boomers who are still working, is pushing for a European-based retirement model that maximizes independence; graceful, dignified aging; and wellness. Although newly active seniors are conscientious about continued on page 4C

MAREJ COM Appeals to motorcycle enthusiasts

Gruskin Group designs 24,000 s/f Rider Insurance HQ

S

PRINGFIELD, NJ, — Rider Insurance, one of New Jersey’s largest providers of motorcycle and ATV insurance, has just completed the renovation and expansion of its Springfield headquarters located at 120 Mountain Ave. Gruskin Group designed the company’s 24,000 s/f headquarters to appeal to motorcycle enthusiasts with a 1940’s industrial aesthetic and integrated motorcycle exhibits. Specifically, Gruskin Group designed the expansion for the company’s existing 12,000 s/f office building, a former bank built in a colonial style complete with dormers and a cupola. To house their growing departments and to accommodate visitors for customer service and sales, the retrofit included the redesign of the building’s existing third floor to support more offices, as well as a redesign of the company’s lobby. The two-story addition is level with the existing structure’s second floor and sits on piers over a brook buried below the parking lot. The new office

The future of multi-family . . . continued from page 2C their spending, there has been a prevailing level of hesitancy to make a major housing move. Many subscribed to a “wait and see approach” in terms of their equity and the residential market. While it was a tough decision to make last year, retirees now realize the housing market is not rebounding and values will not increase dramatically. In general, seniors who have weathered many recessionary periods during the course of their own lifetime are willing to forgo big profits to get into a good price/value fee-for-service rental. They do not want to be held captive by the economy any longer. Senior housing property ownership is expected to remain stable, just as it has been for a while. Fortunately, there does not seem to be a wave of owners jumping in like they did at the height of the assisted living development era. Successful, agile owners and operators remain nimble because of proven, innovative products that have been designed and developed to stand the test of time.

Cowleys Termite & Pest Control

Are nuisance birds taking over your business? Bird control is your best defense

N

ew Jersey, the 47th smallest state with under 9.000 square miles, has the distinction of being the most densely populated with, on average, 1,100 people stuffed into each square mile. Although it would seem that there would be little room for birdlife, almost half of New Jersey is wooded acreage from the vast southern Pinelands to the oaks of the northern forests. According to William Boyle, who authored A Guide to Bird Finding in New Jersey, about 400 species of birds call the Garden State their home. Also, because of our location on the Atlantic coast, we attract an abundance of ducks, skuas, skimmers, geese, shorebirds, gulls, terns, gannets, and other water-associated species. Unfortunately, along with our many species of breathtaking birds from the Black Crowned Night Heron and the Black-capped Chickadee to our state bird, the Eastern Goldfinch, New Jersey also has a serious “nuisance” bird population. The Rutgers Agricultural Extension includes as “nuisance birds” pigeons (Columba livia), house sparrows (Passer domesticus), and starlings (Sternus vulgaris). All of these species are nonnative; they were introduced into the United States from

Europe. For starlings, we can thank Eugene Schifllelin, an eccentric drug manufacturer. In 1890, he imported 60 European starlings and released them in Central Park hoping to introduce America to all of the birds mentioned in Sheakespeare’s works. Now, more than 100 years later the starling has distinguished itself as one of the costliest and most noxious birds. Roosting in hordes of up to a million, starlings can devour vast stores of seed and fruit. In a single day, a cloud of starlings can devour up to 20 tons of potatoes. And disturbing their dried droppings releases microscopic infectious spores into the air carrying bacteria and lethal fungi that can be

easily inhaled. Bird-transmitted diseases include a long list of fungal diseases including histoplasmosis, a fungal lung ailment, and toxoplasmosis, which is especially dangerous to pregnant women. Droppings can also transfer viral meningitis and encephalitis. These species have thrived in human habitats with a virtually unlimited food supply and no natural predators. Said Drew Cowley of Bird Solutions by Cowleys, “We have seen large infestations of all these pest birds in a variety of commercial facilities from all over the state. But in terms of the amount of damage caused by waste droppings and the entrenched level of infestation, pigeons rule the roost, no pun intended. Pigeons have become the avian equivalent of city rodents that have been called every name in the book – from rats with wings and sky rate to gutter birds and flying ashtrays.” According to Cowley, “Nuisance birds take over and use the inside or outside of a building or warehouse as roosting, loafing and nesting sites. Nuisance birds cause extensive damage to structures by drilling holes or clogging ventilation systems and machinery with their nests creating fire hazards. They cause

water backup in rain gutters that can lead to dangerous and costly structural damage. To add insult to injury, these birds leave mounds of diseased waste droppings that are acidic enough to dissolve paint, stain wood, erode metal, and cause concrete and stonework to crumble. Bird problems don’t magically go away. Once these birds get settled in, they won’t be leaving on their own accord. You need to contact an experienced bird control professional who can evaluate the problem and institute cost-effective bird control measures that work.” Said Cowley, “When a client is at wit’s end in dealing with birds and their noxious droppings, the general attitude is that drastic times call for drastic measures. They want these birds gone. Shoot them. Trap them. Poison them. That’s wrong for a variety of reasons. First, the Migratory Bird Treaty and Endangered Species Acts prohibit the trapping or killing of most birds, eggs or nests without a permit. So, before doing anything, you must identify the pest bird and know any applicable municipal, state, and federal laws. Proper and effective bird control is about removal and exclusion through various physical, visual, or auditory deterrents. The objective in

bird control is to not only rid yourself of the existing bird infestation, but also to make sure that birds find your facility undesirable. You want your facility made as “bird-proof” as possible so you don’t have to keep revisiting the problem every year. According to Cowley, bird control is a multi-tactic approach involving a variety of deterrents. “Bird control can be difficult and frustrating, but it is a winnable war. Physical barrier deterrents such as anti-roosting spikes, nettings, post and wire deterrents, bird slopes, and shock tracks are usually the most effective over the long-term and just as important, no harm comes to the birds. Effective long-term bird control requires behavior modification. Eliminate potential food and water sources. Finally, do not attempt to clean up bird droppings yourself unless you have the proper protective gear and have been trained in hazmat procedures. Cowleys Termite & Pest Control services was founded in October 1991 by Drew Cowley. Cowleys offers bird control services through Cowleys Bird Solutions and wildlife removal through Little Rascals Nuisance & Wildlife Services. n

Why a CCTV System with Remote Access? In 2011 CCTV systems have become commonplace. CCTV systems are being used by people in all walks of life, by businesses, law enforcement, and by Home Owners. However, for some reason not all CCTV users’ are taking advantage of “Remote Access”. What is “Remote Access”? Remote Access means the ability to be home, on vacation or at work and still log in over the Internet to check in on your properties, employees and children. This is especially true of property owners and property management companies with

more than one property. The best way to confirm what is actually happening at your property is to log in “remotely’ and verify everything for yourself. Some of things property own-

ers or managers can do with “Remote Access” are: Monitor not only sales and client areas, but also inventory and employee areas. Monitor cash register areas

to observe employees when they handle cash. Protect against false injury claims. View sensitive areas to identify visitors and monitor em-

ployees. Monitor dimly lighted parking areas to protect employees. DGX, LLC is headquartered in Jersey City, NJ. n

A viable Corporate Resilience plan has several essential ingredients. The plan must be a part of the corporation’s governance doctrines and include the establishment of a crisis management team. The plan should direct the establishment of an emergency command center, with a back-up command center location. The plan must have the provisions for worst-case scenarios such as when buildings are rendered inoperable. Are there redundant sites where back-up equipment, servers or mainframes, reside? Are nearby sites prepared to act as recovery sites where staff can operate from with replacement workstations? In addition to dealing with the resilience and the continuity of business operations, the Corporate Resilience plan must include procedures to deal with safety of personnel, in specific, the evacuation of a facility, assigned responsibility and actions to be taken by personnel in the event of fire, explosion, flood, power outage or even civil unrest. In addition to the establishment of the Corporate Resilience plan, there must be an on-going program of testing the plan with emergency or disaster simulations and drills on a periodic basis.

Building Safety & Security By Jioacchino (Jack) P. Mattera, CFE, CFCE, TJM By Steve Chianos, C&C Security Sys.

Security Reactive or Proactive?

Building/Office Security Basics uilding Owners and Employers are required to provide visitors, employees and clients with a secure environment in which to transact business. The key question is how this Jioacchino is accomplished? (Jack) P. Mattera The basic principle of building/office security is to build a foundation to ensure safety. Basic building security can be broken down into a security matrix which includes: building security measures, pre-employment screening and security policies and procedures. Building Security Measures An effective security plan begins with a building’s exterior physical perimeter security. This includes physical barriers and site hardening measures. These measures include access control devices such as locks, fences, and gates; security lighting designed to ensure the safety of employees and visitors during low light conditions; video surveillance systems designed to enable security staff to monitor access in real time as well as providing a historical record of who enters and exits and when; alarm systems to alert security and law enforcement to intrusion attempts; and the possible presence of security guards. Effective use of these measures can strengthen the security features of the building allowing control of the movement of people into, out of and within the building. Features such as fencing, gates and signage can help create a traffic flow which will enhance your security by funneling individuals into areas that you know can be controlled. For instance, these features can be designed to guide people to that area of the building you have chosen as the building entrance. This would be the location where you have security guards, access control gates, etc. Pre-employment Screening Program The next step in the quest

to increase security is to make sure the right people are employed for this impor-

The most effective way to do this is to have a good pre-employment screening program in place. The program should encompass background checks which include criminal record checks, credit history checks, and drug screening and personal interviews. It is important to remember that employee misconduct, embezzlement, theft of trade secrets are all security breaches. The best way to prevent possible issues with employees is to know as much about them before you make them an employment offer. Security Policies and Procedures The last cog in a security matrix is to ensure all employees are aware of and understand the part they play in the overall security plan. The best way to accomplish this is to establish effective policies and procedures that will provide guidance to employees and be specific in what is and what is not expected of them. These policies include but are not limited to; building access, equipment sign out, mail room, etc. An access policy should include procedures dealing with how employees, contractors and visitors enter and exit your facility. Are they required to sign in (and out), show identification, are bags checked, etc. This policy could also stipulate whether or not the building entrances have barriers, such as turnstiles, for people to pass through when entering the building. The policy could also cover whether or not employees are issued building passes which would be mandatory to allowing them free access to all parts of the facility. Equipment sign out procedures would ensure that

would have a property receipt signed by a supervisor which states the employee is allowed to remove the property from the premises. Mail room policies should specify procedures for both outbound and inbound mail. A policy of this type might stipulate any items that cannot be sent through the mail room without a supervisor’s written approval. If that is the case, the policy should state that items are to be brought to the mailroom in an open container. In that way at least two people, the sender and the mail room attendant, would be able to view the package contents. Security policies must be designed based on the level of threat present. At the same time they must be tailored to meet the corporate culture of that particular company. The final part of this aspect of security is to assure that employees understand the policies and procedures through training provided by experts in this field. Conclusion By understanding the importance of physical security, employee screening and effective security policies and procedures, and by implementing them as needed, the safety of employees, clients, visitors as well as the safety of the company is guaranteed.

Here is the bottom line, America is a polite society with citizens that live with relatively little expectation of experiencing violence in their lifetime. Statically, relatively few of us will be Steve Chianos the victims of burglary, and even fewer the victims of a violent crime.

of and that is the idea that having a monitored security system will rush the police to your property. Most police departments give 911 calls from monitoring stations the lowest priority, which leads to the delayed response times mentioned earlier. The reason they do this is that 95% of calls coming from central monitoring stations are false alarms. There are some simple steps you can take to begin

One security illusion is you should be aware of : The idea that having a monitored security system will rush the police to your property. Most police departments give 911 calls from monitoring stations the lowest priority, which leads to the delayed response times mentioned earlier. The reason they do this is that 95% of calls coming from central monitoring stations are false alarms. In a population of just over 300 million less than 1/2% will be the victims of a violent crime and a little over 3% will be the victim of theft or property crimes. Even though the media will sensationalize the crimes that occur, most people will never experience the crime directly. As a result we are satisfied with reactive security measures that offer the illusion of security. We install systems that alarm and notify after an incident has begun. CCTV systems are installed, not video surveillance systems. The difference once again being, one is reactive, CCTV, and the other is proactive. Unless someone is sitting at a security desk watching video monitors, the CCTV system is used to look back at the events of several hours or days ago to see what happened.

moving from reactive security to proactive security. Most of them can be done using the existing security devices that are already in place. First, call your alarm monitoring company and ask them to add your cell phone to the call list first for alarm verification. This will do two things. First, it will allow you to head of any false alarms created if you or someone else accidently trip the alarm. Second, it will alert you to a possible incident and reduce the possibility of your walking in on an intruder. Next, talk to your security provider about your DVR’s capabilities. Most models on the market now can be connected to your buildings WIFI. Once this I done, the system can be programmed to send you an email, text or picture message when movement within a specified field of view occurs.

Why does reactive security equate to the illusion of security? The answer is simple and the numbers bear it out. The average response time nationally to a 911 call from a central monitoring station is 20 minutes. In many areas it is as high as 45 minutes or longer. The average time that a criminal is in a property is 5 minutes.

The object of both of these suggestions is to create a situation where you have more control over your security environment. The increased knowledge you have will give you more control over your personal safety, which should be first and foremost in any security plan.

There is one other security illusion you should be aware

FREE WEBINAR: What You Need To Know About Underwriting and Valuing Multi-Tenant Of¿ce Buildings in the Post Credit Crisis Environment Tuesday March 8, 2011 2:00-2:45 p.m. EST, 1:00-1:45 p.m. CST, 12:00-12:45 p.m. MST, 11:00-11:45 a.m. PST • According to a recent article published in the Wall Street Journal on line, “The amount of occupied of¿ce space increased for the ¿rst time in three years during the fourth quarter of 2010”. • According to property research ¿rm REIS, Inc: “Average of¿ce rents rose by 0.2% to $22.09 per square foot, registering the ¿rst uptick since the second quarter of 2008” (but below pre-2008 rates). • While the national average vacancy rate is about 17.6% it appears to be on the precipice of decline. • Additional studies by national and local ¿rms have stated that the of¿ce market has “bottomed out” and that occupancy and rents will start to rise during 2011. • No signi¿cant new of¿ce building construction has occurred in the last two plus years. • There is a pressing need to supply the numerous re¿nancing opportunities that will arise this and next year. • Special Servicers are trying to unload numerous portfolios of of¿ce backed CMBS mortgages. • Many of¿ce properties with signi¿cant vacancies, above market rents and/or substantial amounts of deferred maintenance are also being offered for sale. Those facts have created an increased interest in ¿nancing and acquiring multi-tenant of¿ce buildings. Accordingly, if you are a mortgage lender, purchaser, investor, appraiser or broker you should forget how you underwrote or analyzed of¿ce buildings prior to the summer of 2007 and the “credit crisis”. In 2011 and beyond, knowing how to analyze of¿ce property using current underwriting and analysis standards is critical if you want to avoid over valuing and to reduce the future potential of having to incur unanticipated and signi¿cant additional capital investment or losses.

COMMERCIAL OFFICE PROPERTIES SPOTLIGHT By Bill Durso, CBRE and Jake Terkanian, Nutrisystem

Nutrisystem Shines in global headquarters relocation with focus on efficiency

C

BRE’s Philadelphia Project Management Team, led by Jake Terkanian, was retained by Nutrisystem to assist with the fit-out and construction of the company’s new global headquarters. Nutrisystem signed a 12-year lease for 120,000 s/f at 600 Office Center Drive in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania. Nutrisystem, Inc. is the number one home delivery weight loss company offering proven nutritionally balanced programs designed for women, men and seniors, as well as the Nutrisystem D plan, specifically designed to help people with type 2 diabetes lose weight and control their diabetes. With a new senior executive management team in place, a stronger company identity and a desire for an increase in operational efficiency, Nutrisystem embarked on an extensive evaluation of its real estate needs in 2008. At the time, Nutrisystem was a company spread over four buildings in Horsham, PA. The firm was at capacity in one building, closing another and in need of significantly renovating a third in order to accommodate all of its current departments and operations. With some of their leases expiring between the fourth quarter of 2009 and the first quarter of 2010, Nutrisystem decided it was an ideal time to search for a highly efficient, single site to meet the growing and changing business needs of its global headquarters. Working with a local real estate advisor, Nutrisystem performed a KOIZ tax analysis, employee mapping study, labor analysis and site selection in October 2008. In addition, the company engaged Meyer Design to perform a full space program to determine Nutrisystem’s appropriate square footage requirements within their current leased spaces and proposed new locations. The team evaluated many locations within the Greater Philadelphia area relative to Nutrisystem’s space needs, business goals and vision for the future. Knowing that the company wanted to be in a single location and understanding the significant IT investment that a re-location would entail, Nutrisystem collaborated with CB Richard Ellis’ Project Management team

600 Office Center Drive

to establish a comprehensive project budget for review by its Board of Directors. Based on Nutrisystem’s business cycle, the tax and labor analyses and employee mapping, it was determined that all staff needed to be relocated by August 2010. Upon budget approval and confirmation of a 120,000 SF space requirement, Nutrisystem set out to make a final site selection by the end of the first half of 2009. The established timeframe eliminated the possibility of retrofitting any of Nutrisystem’s existing build-

ings as well as any build-tosuit options which would take close to 18 months. With input from Nutrisystem, CBRE developed a fully integrated project schedule that included procurement, construction, fixturing, data center migration, and phased occupancy. The team uncovered a prime opportunity at 600 Office Center Drive, a three-story, Class A office building in Fort Washington, PA allowing Nutrisystem to stay in the same geographic area. CBRE negotiated a landlord turnkey construction solution

where Nutrisystem controlled the bidding process and assigned the awarded general contractor to the landlord. By doing this, Nutrisystem assigned budget and schedule risk to the landlord and focused on internal coordination of business activities with a primary focus on the data center migration. Construction began in January 2010 with a planned occupancy of August 2010. Nutrisystem consolidated its global headquarter operations into a single site and continued on page 4D

COMMERCIAL OFFICE PROPERTIES SPOTLIGHT By Marc Schwartz, Marc Realty

Negotiating leases in a soft market he past 3 years have been one of the most difficult periods in which to negotiate leases for property owners while being one of the best times for tenants. The primary purpose re- Marc Schwartz mains filling space, but at what “opportunity cost” ? Many of my clients recognize

T

that base rent has adjusted in their markets and within their properties by 10-40% since the market peak of 2007. The trap that many owners fall into is locking in a discounted rent today for the next 5 years or longer, thereby leaving rent money on the table (the opportunity cost) and affecting the long term value of the asset. If you believe that the market has turned and better times are ahead for owners (property owners like real estate brokers are forever optimistic about the future); then here are four (4)

key deal pointers to negotiate from the Landlord’s side: 1. Adjust the base rent every 2 years rather than every 5 years and use a property based benchmark such as average building rent or most recent lease rent to make the adjustment. Escalations by the CPI or a flat 3% per year on a discounted rent may not return the lease to a market rent over the term. Watch out for the tenant argument that “the market is down 30%”. Most tenants and others involved in the leasing process have a bias toward the

media headlines which paints the real estate market with a very broad brush stroke. The commercial office market does not move in lockstep with the residential market. 2. Do not include electric and other utilities in the gross rent. All other tenants in the retail, apartment and industrial asset classes pay for utilities so why should office tenants be treated differently? Merging utility costs with base rent distorts the income statement and makes comparisons to industry metrics difficult.

3. Be aggressive and definitive with your lease proposal but offer same with conditions and deadlines. Tenants are notorious for collecting proposals and not acting on them. If you really want to shorten the time it takes to get to a deal, be bold with your offer but insist on an answer by a certain date or withdraw and work on the next prospect. 4. Free rent does not cost you if the space is going to remain vacant anyway. I like to add the free rent period onto the term so that it does not erode the full rental value of the lease term. This is the easiest chip to play and usually meets the tenant’s needs for lower rent up front. Another option to this strategy is to defer some of the free rent into the future, making the tenant earn it. Each lease transaction requires a different approach and should not be forced to conform to some standard or model that may not apply. Talk with your broker and construct a meaningful and realistic offer from either side of the deal. Best of success with your real estate this year.

Greater Reading Office Market Report End of Year 2010 Report

T

he 2010 Greater Reading Office Market was much more active than the previous year although vacancy rates increased throughout the local market. This was due to the majority of Bryan Cole the transactions taking place within the county. The office market continued to experience companies downsizing along with relocating their existing offices to take

advantage of the decreasing rates and the increase in lease incentives. The good news is that there were a number of companies who increased their footprints including The Reading Hospital and Medical Group, UGI, and C&L Group. This is good to see in a market which has experienced less than favorable absorption rates within the past few years. Unfortunately due to a number of companies closing operations locally the absorption rate for 2010 still maintained its negative status, however it could have been

much worse without those companies expansion. The end of year 2010 showed a slight decrease in Suburban class “A” building Vacancies starting at 12.5% in late 2009 and closing at 12.4%, mostly due to a new build to suit for the Reading Hospital and Medical Group, along with companies increasing their footprints at 1 Meridian Blvd in Spring Ridge and The Wyomissing Corporate Campus in Wyomissing. Class “A” buildings have typically been a safe sector in the marketplace because of low inventory; however with

new developments coming on line, and companies looking for lower rents the class “A” sector may see less demand, greater competition and potentially more vacancy. Class “A” rental rates in 2010 remained stable with rates ranging from $15.50 - $16.75 (Triple Net) on the high side; however there was considerable downward pressure on pricing within this segment. The class “B” sector experienced the same issues in 2010 as did class “A”, starting at 13.7% and ending at 13.6%, however while vacancy

rates decreased, rental rates remained steady. Base rental rates within this sector range from $8-9 psf and tops out at $12-13 psf with gross rates coming in around $15-16 psf! Recent absorption has come mainly from expansion of operations by companies already in the market. The downtown area of the City of Reading has seen some new deals consummated, like the Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce, Greater Berks Development Fund and Berks Economic Partnership leasing space at 201 Penn St., the market remains flat due to these companies coming from existing space within the City. Buildings that have seen vacancy for some time, including 645 Penn Street and 501 Washington Street are starting to show some signs of hope due to new management and ownership changes taking effect. Owners and tenants are continuing to struggle with parking costs and security concerns, which are continuing to be addressed by a committed City Administration. Downtown City of Reading vacancy rates continue to increase in late 2010 with rates rising 15.6% to 20.7% in class “B” Product with much of the vacancy continuing to surround large blocks of contiguous space. The City of Reading and economic development groups have been working hard to improve and revitalize Downtown which shows in the number of projects underway. The new IMAX Theater and the nearly completed addition to the Reading Eagle Headquarters in the CBD are welcome entrants to the market and kick off a multi-million dollar main street corridor project that includes a new $67 million Doubletree Hotel and garage project across from the Sovereign Entertainment and Expo Center. This will help attract a more vibrant restaurant and entertainment segment with increased amenities and ultimately assist to bring tenants back downtown while decreasing vacancy rates and increases in the tax base. 2011 is showing signs of hope, with new tenants entering the market place, and rental rates continuing along a steady course upward. Deals will continue to get continued on page 8D

NAI EMORY HILL By Tripp Way, NAI Emory Hill

Delaware market remains emotion-driven

L

ike every North American office market, Delaware has endured its share of hardship over the last 24 months, culminating in the expectation for an improvement Tripp Way in conditions during 2011. In the last six months of 2010, while the average class A vacancy rate dropped 1.4 percent, from 12.5 to 11.1, the quoted Full

Service lease rate increased by approximately 25 cents psf. Class B office, while not experiencing any noticeable change in absorption, has seen an average rate increase of about 35 cents psf. Given that rental rates aren’t experiencing major changes in line with the shift and that no new construction projects have brought increases of square footage to the market in areas seeing negative absorption, it can be surmised that emotion continues to play a role in the market. In fact we are seeing some

class C properties quote full service leases at higher rates than Class B in the same area. While these quotes may not take into consideration landlord concessions, coupling a tendency toward shorter-term leases with the willingness to concede shows that emotions continue to run high. It seems safe to say that uncertainty and moderate pessimism remained the motivating factors for both tenants and landlords throughout the second half of 2010, accounting for some interesting market fluctuations.

A comparison of rental rates from the end of 2009, however, provides some reason for optimism. The past year added nearly one dollar psf to the average class A CBD lease. Class A suburban office space is holding steady at about $23 psf. It was during the second half of 2010 that Wilmington moved against a highly-publicized and widely-criticized tax increase against S corporations. While this may have accounted for some fluctuation in the market, no movements from the CBD were reported as

a direct result. Indeed, uncertainty about taxes, increases in health care costs and other economic factors have taken their toll on transactions. The good news is that there are deals to be found in the market. Landlords are willing to negotiate and an increase in market activity should help to move some of the vacancy while construction remains slow, although interest in projects Tripp Way is principal at NAI Emory Hill. ■

NAI PITTSBURGH COMMERCIAL By Gregory HM Broujos, NAI Pittsburgh Commercial

The strength of Pittsburgh’s commercial real estate market

P

ittsburgh’s commercial real estate market has been stable during the downturn due to a combination of population growth and positive employment trends. The city, formerly a manufacturing strong- Gregory Broujos hold, has been transitioning itself into a center for healthcare, education and energy-related jobs. The Pittsburgh region contin-

ues to experience strong growth and is garnering national applause from all over the country. With unemployment two points below the national average, Forbes.com ranks Pittsburgh second nationally in terms of prosperity and cost of living. Moody’s ranks the Pittsburgh commercial real estate market fifth nationally and states that the multifamily market enjoys a 2.4% vacancy rate, the lowest in the country. In terms of job creation, Pittsburgh ranks 10th according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and CNBC states that the cost of living in

Pittsburgh is 12.2% below the national average. Once again, Pittsburgh’s long-standing commercial real estate market stability proves to be a huge asset, especially after coming out of the most recent recession. The office market and multi-family market remain strong, while retail has made modest gains. The main sectors driving Pittsburgh’s 21st century resurgence are businesses involved in drilling for gas from the Marcellus Shale formation and the continued growth of Westinghouse Nuclear. These

factors, along with the technology sector, which has benefited from Google’s commitment to Pittsburgh’s East End, have worked hand in hand with growth from the City’s colleges and universities.

How Do We Get prepared?

T

wo and a half years ago the world was a much different place. The unemployment rate in Central Pennsylvania was well under 4%. Banks were lending money and unfortunate- Bill Gladstone ly, in some cases were doing so unwisely. New businesses were emerging and people were buying real estate. Life was good. In fact, more people were â&#x20AC;&#x153;living the dreamâ&#x20AC;? then compared to now. What was typical and customary then is not at this time. The new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;normâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has not yet re-established itself as we patiently watch to see how close we get to the lifestyle we were living once before. Those of us who have lived through these cycles before know this is exactly what it is, a cycle. The good times will be back, however, we do not know how good they will be or when they will return. With the economy, the jobs, the purchasing of real estate, and the starting of new businesses coming back, we would be foolish not to be prepared. We now have time and many of us may be doing less than we were in prior years simply because the business is not there. How do we get prepared? Do we go to the gym and start working out so we increase our physical endurance and outlast the tough times? Perhaps not such a bad idea since the latest survey shows that 42% of the U.S. population will be obese within ten years. But that is not quite what I had in mind by saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;get preparedâ&#x20AC;? for the upswing. There is no doubt that you want to be physically ready to meet the new challenges, but you also need to be mentally prepared so you can take advantage of this cycle when it hits. Start asking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What can I do to make myself better and make the world better?â&#x20AC;? One of these concepts focuses on economic balance, the other on social responsibility. If you have immediate responses to these two questions, I would ask you to rethink these answers because I am not sure they are that readily available. Here are

some of the things that need to be looked at introspectively so that the right choices are

Northern New Jersey office and industrial markets picking up steam

T

The Northern New Jersey Commercial Real Estate (CRE) market is undeniably showing encouraging signs of a turn for the better. This market is closely W. Joshua aligned with Levering the national economy which predicts a sustained and long term recovery that will be tied to the rate of employment growth.

The Northern NJ market is an extraordinarily large and diverse marketplace that includes many Fortune 500 firms with a concentration in the pharmaceutical, telecom, financial, insurance, manufacturing/distribution and import and export businesses. In addition, there are many large and prestigious international firms. This Market continues to be highly desirable for commerce and industry due to its accessibility to New York City and its very diverse and educated labor pool. Over the past year, vacancy

rates for ‘A’ quality office space have decreased slowly but steadily. Our statistics indicate a reduction of almost two (2) full percent points from approximately 16% at the beginning of 09’ to slightly under 14% at the beginning 2010. Our research indicates strengthening in leasing velocity and renewal activity, particularly in the last quarter of 2010. Overall, the office sector had a positive absorption, the first since 2007. Rental rates for office continue to be somewhat flat but stable. Class A office average

asking rents were at $26.97 psf with Class B rates averaging $22.50 psf. Landlord and owners continue to offer attractive rent concessions and interior improvement packages, especially for the larger and well capitalized tenants. In the Industrial sector, there is little new construction and vacancy rates are steady. At the end of 2009, vacancies were between from 8-9% compared to the 7.65% vacancy at the end of 2010. Leasing rates also held somewhat steady with average asking rates of $5.75 psf for A and B

SOLD ...on the value of teamwork. At NAI James E. Hanson we know the value of teamwork. We take pride in working as a team. Our people value one another. We draw on each others’ strengths. That’s why our representatives will regularly partner on projects to lean on each others’ expertise. That kind of interaction is uncommon in our industry, yet it happens every day at NAI James E.

properties, while warehouse/ manufacturing and bulk warehousing rates were averaging slightly less at $4.65 psf. One of the notable changes to the industrial market last year was the large amount of acquisitions by investors and purchases by users. Overall, the industrial building sale activity in 2010 was very positive. We anticipate the industrial market to continue at a very strong pace during 2011 and predict it will be the leading sector of activity in our market. To sum up, the Northern NJ marketplace is ‘seemingly’ headed in the right direction. With owners, landlords and tenants looking to make deals, the activity should continue in a positive manner. Even with an increase in activity, we don’t predict any dramatic changes in vacancy for the office or industrial sectors. A lack of new construction, continued demand for good properties, and interest rates remaining low, all factor for a positive direction for the CRE marketplace in Northern NJ. W. Joshua Levering, SIOR is senior vice president at NAI James E. Hanson. ■

NAI GLOBAL By John Thiry, NAI Commercial Partners

Lancaster County office market he Lancaster County office market has trended in the same direction, but to a lesser degree, than other MSAs in the region in 2010. Both the city and suburban office John Thiry markets suffered negative absorption during the year. Suburban office vacancy grew by 2% to 19% for class A product and a whopping 6%

T

increase in class B vacancy resulting in 22% vacancy for that product class. The story in the city was dominated by the departure of CoreSource from its downtown location leaving a 59,214 s/f negative class A CBD absorption in its wake. At the end of the year, city office vacancy rates stand at 24% class A and 12% Class B. On the plus side, NNN rates have stabilized over the past 4 quarters at $16.50/SF and $11.00/s/f for class A and class B product respectively. Since the office market traditionally lags employment by 6 9

months, recent stabilization and in fact improvement in local jobs numbers are tentatively encouraging for office demand in the later onths of 2011. Lancaster County boasts a slowly lowering unemployment rate currently at 7.2% and when compared to the state average of 8.5% and a national average of 9.1% looks positively rosy. However this cautiously upbeat news must be tempered against nearly 500,000 s/f of supply on the books and an estimated 100,00 SF of shadow space waiting to be expanded into.

The downtown CBD continues to benefit from the recent opening of the Lancaster Convention Center and Marriott Hotel. Other notable projects include the redevelopment of the former Armstrong World Industries and Norfolk Southern sites by Frankin & Marshall College and Lancaster General Hospital into an 80 acre campus for medical, research and development, educational and recreational uses. Amtrak is in the throes of a $12 million station improvement, the city transit authority is adding a much

needed parking garage in the CBD and redevelopment of the former Lancaster Stockyads into a 20 acre business park has been finalized and construction completed for its first two tenants, CoreSource and Cargas Systems. Lancaster remains a vibrant, stable and attractive place to live and work with a first class arts district and a resurgent downtown scene. Office developers are eyeing any positive employment news as an indicator that the current backlog of office inventory will b absorbed sooner than anticipated.
