he term “environmental fraud” calls to mind unconscionable acts of brazen deceit. For example, a rogue company hides a catastrophic discharge of toxic chemicals as executives falsify reports, lie to regulators and skulk around in a Watergate-style coverup. Truthfully, operators of this caliber would never even read a publication like CCI or heed any compliance-related warnings contained therein. But while environmental fraud (as opposed to, say, shoddy compliance) does require intentional deceit, even well intentioned companies sometimes run the risk of committing fraud by taking a few furtive steps onto a certain slippery slope that involves “shading” the truth. And small companies, in particular, tend to be less aware of the need to establish strong internal controls geared toward preventing fraud. Risk area No. 1: Fudging the numbers “just a little” Back in the day, it was not uncommon for drivers to turn off their catalytic converters in order to boost the performance of their vehicles. When the time came to get an emissions test, they would switch the converter back on. While this was not exactly grand theft auto, it was nonetheless a deliberate act of deceit. Plant managers are sometimes guilty of “fudging the numbers” in similar ways. They might, for example, reduce the volume of emissions coming out of the smokestack for a few days each month in order to create

the appearance of regulatory compliance. The rationale here might run something like this: “I’m not really committing fraud. I’m just shading the truth a bit. The boss will be thrilled if we can get a slightly better insurance premium.” The line between shoddy compliance and fraud can be thin, but in the aforementioned case, it clearly has been crossed. What makes the difference here is the intent to deceive. This, after all, is what environmental crime is all about. Cases of deliberate deception beg for criminal prosecution. Simply put, there is no such thing as a “minor” case of environmental fraud. Risk area No. 2: Running afoul of right-to-know obligations During the 1980s, a spate of environmental catastrophes and near-catastrophes—everything from plant explosions to major releases of toxic chemicals—led to passage of a raft of environmental right-to-know laws. The public wanted to know what that plant with the smokestacks and funny smells had onsite.

Fire departments, too, wanted detailed information: If there was a fire at the plant, should they use water or chemicals to put it out? What materials were most flammable or explosive? Plants were thus legally required to open up. Not only did they have to report exactly how many tons of hazardous particulates were pouring out of the smokestacks, they also needed to give the public and fire and safety agencies a true picture of what was going on at the plant. While public relations or proprietary concerns might tempt some companies to try to create the impression of having a gentler environmental footprint than they actually do, any false reporting in this regard is, quite simply, fraud. The risk of such deceit being uncovered is real. Now and again, state or federal permitting authorities will come on site for routine checks. The Environmental Protection Agency, moreover, periodically examines entire industries, conducting multimedia audits of every plant in the United States, with walk-on inspections and continued on page 4A

EWARK, NJ — Advance Realty has announced that more than 56,000 s/f of deals were completed in the first quarter of 2011 at One Gateway Center, the company’s strategically located office tower in downtown Newark. Brian Banaszynski, vice president of leasing, represented Advance Realty in the following nine transactions, which included new leases, expansions and renewals: “We are experiencing a healthy amount of interest at One Gateway Center as evidenced by the signing of these nine transactions in the first quarter,” said Brian Banaszynski, Advance Realty’s vice president of leasing. “It’s

Pfisterer to speak at the Trade Center NEW YORK, NY — Inc. Magazine’s Business Owners Council invited New Jersey’s Wayne Pfisterer, president of Pfister Energy to speak at a special networking event for CEOs at t h e N e w Wayne Pfisterer York World Trade Center. The program entitled “How I Grew My Company,” included presentations from two Inc. 500|5000 CEOs, including Pfisterer. The event is an initiative of Inc. Magazine’s Business Owners Council, a membership organization for top entrepreneurs and owners of closely-held businesses. As a result of his accomplishments leading Pfister Energy, Wayne Pfisterer is a member of The council. The purpose is to shift focus from conservative discussion, to the more personal experience of entrepreneurial struggle and success. As New Jersey tumbles up and down the hills of competition, on a canvas of economic and energy policy change, it is often challenging to effectively sell renewable energy projects and achieve continued growth in the midst of such market uncertainty. However, amid the turmoil, Inc.’s Business Council executive director Lewis Schiff spotted exceptional leadership at Pfister Energy and has called its president to speak at the event. ■

an encouraging sign to us and for the economy that our existing tenants have realized the benefits of being in such a preeminent site and are expanding and renewing. It’s also promising that more new tenants are selecting One Gateway as their new home because of all the advantages it provides for them and their employees.” Various size spaces are currently available at One Gateway Center, a 26-story, 466,919 s/f building. Other units include highly upgraded space as well as an 8,270 s/f, plugand-play Network Operations Center (N.O.C.) with room for expansion. ■

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP, (MGKF) the environmental, energy and land use law firm based in Bala Cynwyd and several MGKF attorneys have been recognized in their field this year by Chambers and Partners USA 2011: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.

Jonathan H. Spergel, and Carol F. McCabe. According to Chambers USA, the firm and its attorneys were ranked based on in-depth interviews with both lawyers and clients.

Through the interviews, researchers were able to acquire information about MGKF’s and individuals’ qualities including legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment and other characteristics most valued by the client. ■

Eliminating Enviro. Fraud - . . . continued from page 2A thorough audits in which they look carefully for ruses like maintaining “two sets of books,” one for the outside world and one for internal use. As an aside, while it might not rise to the legal definition of fraud, companies should take great care with how they publicly characterize their operations. Sometimes, businesses that legally release chemicals into the air or water under appropriate discharge permits will make overreaching statements: “Why, this stuff is perfectly safe. I’d have no problem with my children being exposed to it.” But there is a difference between a chemical being “perfectly safe” and its having been deemed “safe enough” by the EPA when released in limited amounts over specific periods of time. Lying to the public in this way is yet another form of fraud. Risk area No. 3: Complying with codes of ethics Engineers, geologists, hydrologists and the like always have professional licensing obligations and codes of ethics. Sometimes, compliance is voluntary, but in many states it is a legal requirement. Likewise, as signatories to the International Standards Organization or other industry groups, companies are legally bound to certain professional standards. Making false statements about compliance can also rise to the level of fraud. Here, too, companies must pay close attention to accurate disclosure. The simple solution: Be a good corporate citizen

How can companies reduce their risk of being found guilty of environmental fraud? The simple solution is to make every effort to be a good corporate citizen. That means attending to all obligations vis-à-vis environmental disclosures, from voluntary agreements and professional codes to environmental reporting requirements mandated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. If a violation occurs, the right thing to do is to self-report the incident. Agencies appreciate this. While there was a time when even self-reporting would land companies in hot water, today this is more likely to translate into good faith with regulators. They would just as soon have the problem remedied as chase you for penalties. Mishaps are inevitable. When they occur, acknowledge them and fix them. Covering up is just as bad as lying in the first place and often leads to greater woes. But by establishing strong internal controls—from establishing routine audits and internal checks, to hiring a safety officer empowered to ferret out problems or even working with an outside ombudsman focused on environmental compliance—companies can go a long way toward dramatically reducing their risk. The truth, and nothing but the truth, in other words, is the only option. Attorney James A. Kosch is a Newark, NJ based shareholder in LeClairRyan’s Tort Defense Practice, and a director of the New Jersey State Bar Association’s environmental law section. ■

ETHESDA, MD — Beech Street Capital, LLC provided a $10.4 million Fannie Mae conventional loan to refinance Fairway Ridge Apartments, a 274unit apartment complex. The transaction was originated by Jacob Katz of Meridian Capital Group, LLC and was financed by Beech Street Capital as part of its correspondent relationship with Meridian.

West, Lane & Schlager brokers 14,967 s/f lease WASHINGTON, DC — A trade group that serves as the global voice of the alternative investment industry has significantly increased the size of its office in Washington. West, Lane & Schlager (WLS), a commercial real estate brokerage firm that represents tenants has negotiated on behalf of the Managed Funds Association (MFA) a 14,976 s/f lease at 600 14th St. NW. Eric West, LEED AP, a principal with WLS, and Ganon Rich, a company vice president, represented MFA in the 10-year, 9-month lease transaction. Previously, MFA occupied a shared-office space at 2025 M St. NW. For its new DC headquarters, MFA scouted office buildings on Capitol Hill and in both the Central Business District and the East End, according to West and Rich. Continuing association-wide trends of locating the office within close proximity of Capitol Hill and creating a facility to allow for large, regular gatherings of association members,

MFA Office Interior the new office will give MFA the capacity it needs to better serve as the trusted representative of the industry for policy makers, regulators and the media, as well as the leading advocate for sound business practices and industry growth. “We are very excited to have found a new space that better accommodates the staff and membership of the association, and a location that is much more convenient for our outreach efforts. With an abundance of hotels, restaurants and retail

nearby, our office is an inviting destination for members and guests,” said Marc Charon, MFA’s executive vice president and managing director, COO. “The new corporate office at 600 14th St. NW advances MFA’s goal of establishing a more visible presence in Washington. This was pivotal to MFA, because the association was transitioning from an outsourced infrastructure model to a stand–alone association with the requisite internal resources.” ■

EASTON, MD — The Former Cenveo building, located off of Dutchmans Ln. and Idlewild was purchased by local developer G2 Properties, LLC.

The property was formerly owned by Cenveo Corporation, who owned and operated the property until September of 2009. The property has been sitting vacant since this time. The purchase consisted of 200,000 s/f of flexible manufacturing/warehouse space as well as 12 acres of land in the heart of Easton; the building is going to be completely remodeled to meet a variety of needs. The redevelopment project, named Achievement Park, contains an extensive medical-grade office overhaul. Historically, G2 Properties, LLC has focused on professional/medical office, developing/building approximately 1,000,000 s/f of professional/ medical space on the Eastern Shore such as Woodbrooke and East Park professional center both in Salisbury; the professional/medical aspect of the redevelopment fits right into their portfolio as well as the character of the neighborhood. The buyer is offering a variety of medical/professional office options at Achievement Park. Space is available for sale and lease. All lease rates will be 20-30 percent below the current market rates. The building offers many amenities such as walking

trails and nearby parks, frontage on three roads (two of which have direct access to US 50), and technological amenities such as a redundant fiber loop. Other redevelopment plans include select demolition of portions of the building to increase parking for medical/professional users. The buyer is working with Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore to donate up to 25,000 s/f of the building to host a Junior Achievement Experiential Facility for students to have hands-on real life experiences, including job interviews, purchasing a home, paying bills, and understanding personal finance. Jayme Weeg, president of Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore said, “We look forward to providing real life, hands on experience in a safe environment that encourages learning without the expensive mistakes that can come from not understanding the free enterprise system.” The final segment of Achievement Park is approximately 80,000 s/f of flex space and the ability for potential tenants to occupy specific segments of the building to cater to their needs. In regards to the purchase of soon-to-be Achievement Park, Tony Gilkerson of G2 Properties, LLC said, “We are happy to have the opportunity to be able to assist Junior Achievement in developing their facility and look forward to working with the community to redevelop this building back into a community asset.” ■

Casino, as well as the Sands BethWorks casino in Bethlehem, PA in 2009. In Mount Lebanon, PA, CWC has been contracted to design/ build a 60,000 s/f commercial mixed-use facility for Springhill Suites. Owned by Kratsa Properties, the structure will include spaces for 81 cars and will be completed by October of 2011. This project is valued at over $3 million. Pittsburgh based Impakt Development Inc. has also con-

tracted CWC to design/build a 32,000 s/f 86-space garage at the Fifth Avenue School Lofts, a residential development located in Pittsburgh. The project is valued at nearly $1.3 million and will be completed by June of 2012. The federal government has contracted CWC to design/build a 247,000 s/f parking structure in Cincinnati, OH with 700 parking spaces at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center. The project is valued at $8,666,150

and will be completed by September 2012. “We are pleased to be able to perform design/build for these new parking garage projects. From a cost savings standpoint, design/build is ideal because it lowers engineering costs by eliminating multiple layers of intermediary consultants. It also lowers construction costs because it shortens construction time,” said Carl Walker Construction president Len Tsupros. ■

On 850-space waterfront parking garage

Weehawken Twp. and Roseland Property Co. break ground WEEHAWKEN, NJ — Calling the project a key to unlocking the development potential of the Port Imperial waterfront, Mayor Richard F. Turner led a group of officials from Hudson County, the state Economic Development Authority (NJEDA), New York Waterway and Roseland Property Company in breaking ground on a new waterfront parking garage. The groundbreaking marks the commencement of construction of an 850-space public parking garage at Port Imperial for ferry commuters to New York City and customers of local retail establishments. Once completed, the lot will free up a large tract of land that is currently utilized as a surface parking lot, making it available for future development. Luxury residential buildings, retail stores and a waterfront hotel are all planned for the site. “I cannot emphasize enough how important this project is for the future of the waterfront,” Mayor Turner said. “Without this project, you either have no parking or no future development, and successful development is crucial for Weehawken. The parking garage project is expected to create between 250 and 350 construction jobs and 30-to-40 temporary jobs in our community. It will also add $1.2 million in revenue to our

Easing the burden of disaster recovery

O

n an average day, the scope of a property manager’s role is already quite broad, his or her duties spanning what would be for most a single career: Finance, Operations, A d m i n i s - Christine Messina tration, Human Resources, Maintenance, Marketing and Safety. When an unexpected property loss occurs, due to fire, water, natural disaster or utility malfunction, the original overflowing workload remains, while suddenly the attention shifts to an entirely new responsibility, that of disaster recovery. Some property managers have lived through a catastrophic loss and gained valuable knowledge about what to expect, as well as the “Do’s and Don’ts” of the recovery process. For those who have not, it is easy to imagine the intense level of stress that is added, as the manager tries to navigate the intrusion of disaster striking, and come to terms with how the loss has the potential to impact each of the manager’s duties: Finance, Operations, Administration, Human Resources, Maintenance, Marketing and Safety. To receive a call at 3am and hear the words, “There was a cooking fire in Unit 2A”, or “there is a sprinkler line break on the second floor” is an emotionally charged moment in one’s career. The jump start of adrenaline is simultaneously met with the thought, “What do I do next…” and since this is a crisis and it’s difficult to organize one’s thoughts

quickly, “What should I do FIRST?” The good news is, with some preparation, and tips about what to do in the early hours of a loss, the property manager can bring calm to (what could be) chaos, thus promoting a very positive outcome for the property, the owner and the tenants. 1) MITIGATE damages immediately: As the representative of the policy holder, it is incumbent upon the property manager to take measures to mitigate damages immediately. Have an emergency plan in place with hard copies of key phone numbers of emergency contractors. While storing numbers in phones and computers has become standard, we have all been subjected to Murphy’s Law, loss of data, or loss of power. It costs very little to have back-up copies on a nightstand or car glove compartment. Obtain an agreement with a credentialed 24/7 disaster recovery firm that can address not only the emergency needs, but can also conduct and inspection and assess the structure for all damages. The company’s hiring criteria should also include the firm’s expertise and performance record in assisting the residents. While the channel of communication should always be centralized to the Owner or owners rep, the property manager, an experienced and service-oriented vendor will ease one of the biggest burdens, that of tenant “hand-holding”. Know where the water main is located and shut off utilities if needed. Never enter a flooded area if uncertain of any potential for electrical charge. 2) INSURANCE: notify the carrier and broker. Rely upon

the broker to explain the complexities of the policy, any possible gaps in the coverage or any questions that may arise as to the definition of common versus tenant areas. Partner with an emergency vendor that has an excellent understanding of insurance and the carrier’s needs to include mitigation, documentation and requirements of cause and origin. This will assist in presenting a claim for reimbursement to the Owner. 3 ) D O C U M E N TAT I O N : Make sure the disaster recovery contractor has the proper equipment to include infrared thermography, moisture meters, digital cameras and video.

MAREJ COM For the Newark Collegiate Academy

Hollister Construction Services holds topping out

N

EWARK, NJ — Hollister Construction Services, a leading full-service general contractor and construction manager specializing in industrial, commercial and retail Chris Johnson construction, held a topping out ceremony on July 7 for the Newark Collegiate Academy, a 63,855 s/f high school located at 18-36 Norfolk St., which will be operated by The Friends of TEAM Academy Charter Schools. The academy will feature a four-story classroom building with a two-storygymnasium/ cafeteria/auditorium for approximately 600 students. It expected that the ground-up construc-

tion project will be completed in the spring of 2012. Hollister Construction Services has worked hand in hand with the owner and KSS Architects LLP during the preconstruction phase. “This project is about building futures and the Hollister team is proud to be part of such a worthwhile endeavor that will play a vital role in the Newark educational system,” said Chris Johnson, CEO of Hollister Construction Services. “Through the years, Hollister has established a niche of working with educational institutions such at the TEAM Charter Schools by providing quality construction services in a timely and efficient manner.” Hollister has completed a number of other educationoriented projects including a $6-million renovation effort

for Farleigh Dickinson University; a satellite office and therapy facility for The Center for Autism in Philadelphia, PA; a ground-up, stick-framed children’s day care for Onyx Equities in East Brunswick; and the renovation of the Torah Academy in Teaneck to accommodate enrollment growth. TEAM Charter Schools is a growing network of KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) schools, which currently serves more than 1,300 African American and Latino students from low-income Newark communities. The mission of TEAM Charter Schools is to create a network of schools that instill in their students the desire and ability to succeed in college, in order to change the world. The national network of KIPP schools serves over 27,800 students. ■

Cure Breast Cancer Foundation adds nine participants to the 2nd Annual “Lease For A Cure” program in October CLIFTON, NJ — The list of prominent real estate industry leaders signing up to participate in the 2nd Annual Lease For A Cure program continues to grow with nine new companies joining the fundraising effort in which participants donate to the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) for every new lease and renewal signed at their rental communities this October. CBCF is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, which supports breast cancer research efforts under the direction of noted oncologist and the Foundation’s Scientific Advisor Dr. Larry Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn

H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center. The addition of the new companies, which followed the New Jersey Apartment Association Annual Conference in Atlantic City, brings the number of companies participating this year to twenty. They include Bukiet Management, C.L.B.L Realty, FM Ferrari, JP Management, Landmark Companies LLC, Manhattan Welding, Legow Management Company LLC and Wessex Management, LLC. Interest in joining was so high during the industry event; vendors including RestoreCore have also inked their name to the cause. These recognizable names will join many of the same

apartment owners and managers that took part in the 1st Annual Lease For A Cure initiative last year, which raised more than $25,000 for the efforts of Dr. Larry Norton and his colleagues. The 2011 Lease For A Cure program is expected to surpass the 2010 results as real estate industry leaders line up to participate in the fight against cancer. Participants in the trailblazing effort simply donate $20 for every new lease signed and $10 for every renewal signed at their community during the month of October. “The response we received at the convention far exceeded our expectations,” said executive director Leslye Schulman. ■

continued from page 2B original conditions of the loss is essential, as the carrier’s adjuster may not arrive on site until 48-72 hours after the loss occurred. 4) INDOOR AIR QUALITY: When addressing IAQ issues, here is a simple rule of thumb: the same firm should not test, remediate, and retest to clear the air. Hire an independent Industrial Hygienist to conduct the air samples and swabs. The IH will write the protocol for remediation (if necessary), and the remediation contractor will develop the estimate from the IH’s protocol. After the work is complete, the IH will return to the site to re-test and provide air-clearance. This process is critical to declare that the building is safe for re-entry, as well as provides documentation to address tenant health concerns or allegations postincident. 5) COMMUNICATION: Establish in advance how communication will flow from contractor to property manager and from property manager to tenants. Successful communication begins in the first hours of a loss. It is the manager’s role to communicate what the priorities are, and the contractor’s role to listen and evaluate if the manager’s priorities can be executed without compromising the building’s health and safety.

Maxwell Systems, Inc. announces partnership with American Compliance Systems for compliance, tools K I N G O F P R U S S I A , PA — Maxwell Systems, Inc. recently announced its partnership with American Compliance Systems to provide a comprehensive set of safety tools and consulting services for construction professionals. This partnership will provide construction companies with safety-specific solutions, access to OSHA compliance expertise to more

effectively manage their safety program, and capacity to avoid OSHA sanctions, fines, and penalties; improve their chance of winning bids; attain lower insurance costs; identify safety measures for optimal benefit, and more. Maxwell Systems will offer jobsite safety checklists that provide contractors with the ability to: pinpoint requirements and actions

to take for each OSHA sub part - eliminating the need to read thousands of pages of regulations, thus saving time and increasing accuracy, easily inform vendors and subcontractors about their specific safety responsibilities, reduce risk by ensuring vendor and subcontractor compliance and track vendor and subcontractor compliance. ■

In the emergency phase of the loss, email, phone and photo updates should begin immediately and be updated with frequency. Once a work plan and timeline for completion is established, communication should occur daily (or as frequently as mutually agreed upon) to ensure that the process is moving forward as planned, or to adjust as necessary to any unforeseen conditions. Utilize the property’s website and email for crisis communication to tenants, as well as job progress updates and expected completion time. It can’t be said often enough, ineffective communication is the root of all problems, however, quality and consistent communication is the antidote to stress. An emergency plan which incorporates the procedures above, combined with an expert contractor who can communicate effectively empowers the property manager to gain control of the situation and most importantly, provides the manager the freedom to return to the original, albeit broad, workload prior to the loss. Christine Messina, marketing director for allRisk Property Damage Experts ,is a passionate emergency preparedness advocate, active with several professional organizations and non-profit advisory boards in New Jersey. ■

IBS activity signals increased confidence for real estate firms TOTOWA, NJ — Stepped up activity through the first half of 2011 at Integrated Business Systems (IBS) reflects increasing confidence among commercial and residential real estate companies in the New York/New Jersey region.

and services that enable clients to tap into their systems via the Internet. Mullin noted that business also has picked up dramatically in IBS’ network services department, which supplies consulting, installation and support for computer and networking technologies. “I think people got through last fall, saw that things were getting better and budgeted to do some technology replacement,” he said. “The hardware side of the business is doing very well.” IBS expects continued growth through 2011, according to Mullin. The firm has increased its 45-person staff with four recent hires and expects to add several more positions in the coming months. IBS has ramped up operationally as well. Last fall, the company relocated to its new headquarters in Totowa. Since then, it has introduced new measures for its own operational effi ciency, including a new help desk ticketing system. ■

PEOPLE ON THE MOVE On “Advanced Lighting Solutions” web cast

Encelium Technologies’ Mocherniak is head speaker

T

EANECK, NJ — During the recent “Advanced Lighting Solutions” web cast, Terry Mocherniak, co-founder and chief operating officer of Encelium TechTerry nologies, Mocherniak detailed how property owners and facility managers can achieve maximum energy efficiency through state-of-the-art lighting control technology. The webinar was hosted by CoR Advisors . “Although lighting is typically one of the largest energy loads for a building, it has historically not been considered ‘controllable,’” said Mocherniak, who possesses more than 18 years of experience in the industry. “That is all changing due to dramatic advances in lighting technology in the

last four to five years and the global mandate for new sustainable building standards and energy codes.” In 2001, Mocherniak founded Encelium with Marc Hoffknecht, the company’s chief technology officer. During the last decade, Encelium has achieved tremendous growth and is now a leading international technology company specializing in addressable lighting control systems for commercial buildings. Encelium manufactures the Energy Control System™ <http://www.encelium.com/en/ ecs/ecs.html> (ECS), the most advanced lighting control solution on the market today. In his web cast program, Mocherniak discussed the six key components of an advanced lighting control system like ECS. Those include daylight harvesting, occupancy sensors, smart-time scheduling, task tuning, personal software-based controls, and variable load shedding. He

also detailed how an advanced lighting solution facilitates LEED certification and can be integrated - and share essential data - with other building systems including HVAC. “For property owners and managers, the first step toward gaining control of their building’s lighting energy use and expenditures is to have a vendor complete a lighting audit and identify the ‘lowhanging fruit’ in terms of efficiency,” added Mocherniak. “After that, they can consider conducting a pilot program on strategic areas in their building to demonstrate potential energy savings and reinforce the findings of the audit.” Additional speakers on the “Advanced Lighting Solutions” web cast included Darlene Pope of CoR Advisors, Tommy Russo of Akridge and Mike Feinstein of Digital Lumens. Premier sponsors were Encelium and Digital Lumens and supporting sponsors included Cisco, CSI and Genea. ■

Williams, council member, Township of Orange. “Our honorees all have in common that they are dedicated to community, helping others to grow and improve their lives in every possible way,” said Parrish. “Even during your most frantic pursuits of success, if you are willing to freely distribute your gifts to others, whether it’s your time, money or resources, you can and will create a positive effect on others that will be multiplied and returned to you. If nothing else you will be richer for your giving and someone will be better off because of your contribution.” ■

Universal Design Benefits & Challenges

A

topic of growing interest to builders, owners, developers and architects, is the subject (and controversy) of “Universal Design.” Universal Design is a philosophy of ‘inclusion,’ for the design of the Mary Severino buildings in which we live, work, play and use on a daily basis. Although the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, has provided the basis

of barrier-free design for over 20 years, the premise of the “Universal Design” movement reaches further, encompassing the needs of all people, whether they are young or old, or whether they experience few difficulties, small challenges or major disabilities. According to NC State University’s “Center for Universal Design” website, “Universal design is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design,” as attributed to Ron

Mace. How does this concept differ from the ADA? The American’s with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is a civil rights law that has had great impact on the built environment. It was enacted to protect the rights of people with disabilities, as defined by the law. As most building and facilities-oriented professionals know, this law requires that new and existing facilities are compliant with published accessibility guidelines. The impact of the ADA legislation was substantial, changing the size, configurations and com-

ponents of buildings used by the public. Universal Design encompasses a wider array of issues beyond those tackled by ADA. For example, as our population ages, more people experience diminished levels of vision, hearing or mobility, even though they may be ambulatory, or not be formally classified as “disabled.” Why might this concept be of interest to so many at this time? The number of people over age 65 has been increasing steadily. House Bill #227, introduced in the Delaware State Assembly

on June 30 of this year, indicates that Delaware’s population aged 65-74 increased 18% over the years 2005-2010, and is expected to increase nearly 25% from 2010-2015. These statistics bring with them the associated concerns of issues that impact people as they age and are susceptible to conditions that may diminish their capabilities leading to larger percentages of people who face disabilities and challenges as they try to function in their every-day environments. Other recent developments have changed in our culture, in particular with respect to housing. The sagging economy has had a tremendous impact on the housing market. A home purchase is a long-term investment as opposed to a shortterm money-maker. In addition to an aging population, we also have returning injured war veterans who need appropriate affordable housing, not to forget other people who may contract illnesses that impact their abilities, regardless of their age. With sensitivity and creativity, architects, designers and developers can and should provide building options that are inclusive within the definition of Universal Design. Options must be made available for consideration at affordable prices. However, the implications on housing are particularly significant. Most homes do not have 36” doors, lever door hardware, or bathrooms with vanity knee space, wheelchair turn-around space, lower kitchen counters or space for future elevators. Without legislative mandates, the development of housing units planned within Universal Design principles will not likely happen. Difficulties can arise with well-intended legislation, particularly at a time of economic difficulty for the construction industry. Delaware House Bill 227 proposes amendments to the Delaware Code by adding a chapter, “Universal Design Standards for Affordable Housing.” This bill would impact the design and bid-selection considerations for buildings constructed using public financial assistance, providing incentive ‘points’ for design using Universal Design guidelines. Although referred to Committee, this bill is noteworthy because of its recognition of the realities continued on page 11B

What’s Your Energy Score?

D

o you know how your properties are performing in terms of energy use? Many people assume newer buildings perform well, and older buildings perform poorly. But m a n y a r e William Amann surprised to find that these and other assumptions don’t hold up when we compare actual numbers. Energy use is an important aspect of the performance of these assets, and it is foolish to manage properties without knowing whether it is a high performance, average, or poorly performing building. You certainly compare your mutual funds and stocks for performance. You should have benchmark rankings for your properties as well. Fortunately, we have some excellent tools for determining how any particular building performs in comparison to a national database. This is important, because there are many factors that affect the cost of one building compared to another. By using the Energy Star Portfolio Manager system, we can equalize for these factors. First of course is the use of the building, i.e. office apartment, hotel, school, etc. And the size of the building matters, even though comparisons are done on a per-square-foot basis. Other factors include number of occupants, computers, hours of use, and on-site cooking and laundry, each of which account for energy use besides the lighting and HVAC. We put this data into the Portfolio Manager database, which calculates what the average energy consumption is for similar buildings in the same climate zone. We then enter the actual energy consumption of the building for the past year, and the performance is compared with the averages of all similar buildings in the database. The subject property is ranked as to which percentile it is in. For instance, the Wyndham Headquarters building in Parsippany was rated in the 90th percentile for 2010. That means it was in the top 10% in terms of energy performance for similar

buildings. This is based on actual energy bills, and the Portfolio Manager database is provided by the U.S. EPA, so the rating is from a trustworthy and neutral source. The ranking provides more than just the relative percentile. It also shows the comparative costs, and CO2 emissions. The Wyndham HQ building demonstrated that it was spending $500,000 per year LESS than the median office building of that size, and saving 1,571 MtCO2e (Equivalent Metric Tons of CO2) per year. Buildings that

achieve a ranking of 75 or better are awarded Energy Star Certification, and receive a plaque and recognition (no, not any money) from the EPA. We have also seen buildings that were presumed to be high performers score very poorly. If a particular building scores significantly below the median level, it is a clear indicator that there is lots of opportunity for improvement. We have seen buildings that show they are spending hundreds of thousand of dollars MORE than the average

building, and obviously much more than an Energy Star building. This information is generally a very clear indicator that the building needs an energy audit and energy reduction plan, and quickly demonstrates to management or investors that saving energy can generate significant financial returns. We can’t manage what we can’t measure. But fortunately, we can pretty easily benchmark most buildings to determine how they are performing, and how they compare to similar buildings in

the same climate. Adjusting for weather, relative costs for electricity and gas, and other factors can be normalized to give a pretty clear report card score. Score well, and you can pat yourself on the back, and figure out how to climb a few more points. Score poorly, and you know how much money is on the table if you can get to high performance. So what’s your score? William Amann, P.E., DCEP, LEED AP is president of M&E Engineers, Inc. and immediate past Chair, USGBC – NJ. ■

hat can you learn from public and private stakeholders who invest and work together? A lot. Downtown shopping and business districts have been failing for decades Joseph Charma as retail and corporate America moved to suburban malls and office parks. Are we to believe there are no prime opportunities for development,

investment and leasing right in our own backyards? With a renewed focus on sustainable, walkable communities gaining popularity, a rebirth of “Main Street” is occurring all over the country. Developers and brokers can learn about these opportunities from the cooperative efforts of public and private stakeholder partnerships. And, you can find this right in your own backyard. The City of Newark, Delaware is a prime example, having recently been recognized as a 2011 Great American Main

Street Awards Winner, SBA’s Small Business Community of the Year, and named the best city for business start-ups by Business Weekly. Downtown Newark is the product a unique environment in which the University, the City, and the residential and businesses communities, through Downtown Newark Partnership (DNP) leadership, work together to create a vibrant, diverse and economically healthy downtown. Downtown Newark is a diverse dining and specialty shopping destination on the

Delmarva Peninsula, but it has not always enjoyed this coveted reputation. In the 1950s, Newark began to grow significantly beyond its center and downtown declined. By the mid-1970s, competitive pressures increased dramatically, causing further decline. In the last four years, more than $40 million in private funds have been invested in 11 new building construction and 24 reconstruction projects, and nearly $1.4 million has been invested in public improvements in downtown.

The DNP is committed to the unique economic development tool from National Trust Main Street Center: “The Main Street Four-Point Approach is the foundation for local initiatives to revitalize their districts by leveraging local assets—from cultural or architectural heritage to local enterprises and community pride. “The four points of the Main Street approach work together to build a sustainable and complete community revitalization effort: in brief, they include: “Organization establishes consensus and cooperation by building partnerships among the various groups that have a stake in the commercial district… “Promotion takes many forms, but the goal is to create a positive image that will rekindle community pride and improve consumer and investor confidence… “Design means getting Main Street into top physical shape and creating a safe, inviting environment. It takes advantage of the visual opportunities inherent in a commercial district by directing attention to all of its physical elements… “Economic restructuring strengthens the community’s existing economic assets while diversifying its economic base…The goal is to build a commercial district that responds to the needs of today’s consumers. “Coincidentally, the four points of the Main Street approach correspond with the four forces of real estate value, which are: social, political, physical, and economic.” As chairman of the DNP’s Design Review Committee, I encourage you to visit Downtown Newark and see the fruits of the stakeholders’ labor. Joseph G. Charma, P.E., is a principal with LandmarkJCM based in New Castle, DE.

Thermal Remediation of Bed Bugs

B

ed bugs are a widespread, growing problem; rampant in areas that have a high turnover of residents. Hotels, apartment buildings, and nursing homes have a particularly high risk of infestation. The eradication of these bugs is costly to such institutions. The inconvenience and discomfort caused by bed bugs encourage residents to leave, resulting in vacancies and spreading. By the time a management company realizes that there are bed bugs on the premises, the infestations are typically widespread and the bed bugs are infesting

more than beds; in furniture, under carpet, in walls and

possibly spread to adjoining units. At this point, only the most aggressive methods will succeed. Heat treatments are an aggressive and highly effective way of eradicating the bed bug population. Some advantages to having a heat treatment performed as opposed to the traditional chemical treatment are: The thermal treatment kills every stage of the bed bug life cycle, works where chemicals fail, no toxic perfumes or residue, no preparation is needed, and typically, infested items do not need to be thrown away.

While traditional pest control procedures using chemicals have been successful in eliminating general pests, tests have shown the only way to completely eradicate bed bugs is through the use of heat. Recent studies show that bed bugs around the world have developed a resistance to the chemicals used to control them. As reported by Robert Lee Holtz in The Wall Street Journal in the January 20, 2011 edition, “researchers at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst recently reported in New York City, bed bugs are now 250 times

more resistant to the standard pesticide than bedbugs in Florida, due to changes in a gene controlling the resilience of the nerve cells targeted by the insecticide”. However; due to the acute sensitivity that bed bugs have to heat, we are assured that all stages of bed bugs die through the use of thermal treatment. Heat treatment is a proven, non-chemical method of killing bedbugs. All life stages (adult, larva, and eggs) die within minutes at a temperature of 120°F. Using electric heaters powered by a trailer-mounted, diesel generator; the heat treatment introduces temperatures between 120°F and 140°F. During the heat treatment, the rooms being treated are monitored, in real-time, with wireless sensors placed throughout to ensure lethal temperatures are reached in every area of the room and its contents. High temperature blowers are positioned to move the heated air throughout the space - through mattresses, baseboards, cracks, crevices, and all hidden surfaces. Although the process may seem costly, eradication of bed bugs using a heat treatment can save thousands of dollars in dry cleaning bills and the cost of replacing infected items that would have been discarded during a chemical treatment. The time saved in preparation alone makes the heat treatment a superior option. Depending on room furnishings, floor surfaces, clutter and square footage, the treatment will take between 7 and 12 hours; completed in one working day. After completion, residents may return to their homes by evening – allowing the house to properly cool down. This is a relatively painless and completely environmentally safe procedure, making it the preferred choice for property owners and managers today. With the revolutionary treatment that heat provides, you can rest assured knowing that the most successful option in eradicating bed bugs, is also the safest out there. ThermaRid, LLC specializes in the proven treatment using heat to eradicate bed bugs. ThermaRid is centrally located in Lakewood, NJ and conveniently services NY, NJ, PA and CT. ■

Estoppel Certificates and SNDAs: Important aspects of commercial leases

T

here are two documents that tenants are often asked to sign during their lease term: a tenant estoppel certificate and a subordination, nondisturbance and attornment agreeMatthew J. ment (an Swett “SNDA”). A tenant should never treat either document as routine as each document can have real life consequences for the tenant.

However, with careful consideration and assistance from a commercial real estate lawyer, many of these adverse consequences can be avoided. A tenant estoppel certificate is a short document that contains Hannah Dowd a s e r i e s o f McPhelin statements by a party (usually a tenant) about the lease. The party signing an estoppel certificate is prevented (or estopped) from taking a posi-

tion contrary to the certificate. If you are the party signing an estoppel certificate, you should review the statements in the document for accuracy, make any necessary corrections and raise any outstanding issues before signing. Estoppel certificates are often required by the landlord’s lender when it will be providing a loan to the landlord or by a purchaser of the property containing the leased premises; the loan or purchase would likely be contingent upon the tenant’s delivery of a “clean” estoppel certificate, meaning an estoppel certificate that is

consistent with the lease documents and that does not disclose defaults by either party under the lease. For the tenant, one of the most important parts of the estoppel certificate provision in the lease is the time period (following the landlord’s request) for delivering the certificate to the landlord. This time period is typically 5 to 15 business days. The tenant should consider how long it will take the tenant to review, negotiate (if necessary), sign and return the certificate to the landlord and negotiate this time period accordingly.

A SNDA is an agreement between landlord, tenant and landlord’s lender. Basically, a SNDA provides for: (1) the subordination of the tenant’s rights to the lien of lender’s mortgage; (2) the lender’s agreement not to disturb the tenant’s rights under the lease in the event the lender forecloses its mortgage and (3) the tenant’s agreement to recognize the lender or the successful purchaser at the foreclosure sale as its landlord. However, a lender’s standard SNDA also provides that the lender is not: obligated to complete any construction obligation of the landlord, obligated to fund any improvement allowances not paid by the landlord, liable for the defaults of the landlord under the lease, or bound by any future amendments to the lease made without the lender’s consent. These provisions could have drastic implications for a tenant if its landlord were to default under its loan and the lender forecloses on the property. For example, the tenant’s lease could be terminated, the expected tenant improvements may never be completed or the successor landlord may not have an obligation to fix an ongoing roof leak. It is crucial that a tenant consult with a real estate lawyer in order to protect the tenant’s rights in connection with a SNDA. Matthew J. Swett is a continued on page 4C

Griffin Land Commences Development at Lehigh Valley Tradeportin Bethlehem, PA riffin Land, the real estate division of Griffin Land & Nurseries, Inc. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Griffinâ&#x20AC;?) is commencing development on its 51 acre site on Fritch Drive in Bethlehem, PA. Griffin Land entered Michael Gamzon the Pennsylvania market in 2010 with the purchase of two properties in the Lehigh Valley, a 120,000 s/f warehouse in Allentown and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;shovel-readyâ&#x20AC;? parcel of land for development on Fritch Drive, named the Lehigh Valley Tradeport industrial park. At Lehigh Valley Tradeport, Griffin Land plans to develop two warehouse buildings totaling 531,000 s/f. Griffin Land sees this development as part of its long term strategy to increase its ownership, development and management of properties in in the Lehigh Valley and other Northeast and Middle Atlantic regions. Lehigh Valley Tradeport The Lehigh Valley Tradeport is a rail served industrial park located off Brodhead Road, minutes from Route 22 and key Lehigh Valley roadways including I-78, I-476 and Route 33. The Brodhead Road area is home to over 6 million s/f of industrial space and includes tenants such as Kraft Foods, OSRAM Sylvania, Americold, Crayola, Walgreenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and FedEx. The park will consist of two warehouse facilities of 303,000 and 228,000 s/f, respectively. Michael Gamzon, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Griffin said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect to have the pads ready by the end of the summer and are considering starting speculative construction on a warehouse building in the fall. Additionally, we continue to seek build-to-suit opportunities for either building.â&#x20AC;? According to Sean Bleiler, senior associate for CB Richard Ellis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lehigh Valley market has experienced strong absorption trends over the last few quarters and we believe there will be healthy demand for modern warehouse space.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Griffin Land has a long history of developing buildings both on speculation and

Central NJ Office Market: Current reality is half empty-half full

I

s the glass half empty or half full? Simple, it is both. The glass, or in this case the market, is somewhere in the middle. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll quote a line from the King of Queens; Doug (Kevi n J a m e s ) George Gervasi is happy to be right in the middle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not too good, not too bad, right on the cutting edge ofâ&#x20AC;Śmediocre.â&#x20AC;? Now, that is not to say that we as brokers and property

owners are at all pleased with this mediocre reality, but it is the current reality. So, as professionals, we mainly deal with and in the momentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reality. (well most of us anyway!) So when it comes to the market, specifically the office market within CNJ, we are dealing with high vacancies, flat micro and macro economic conditions and an especially hard hit labor market, both here in NJ and across the country. Ultimately it has resulted in reduced income streams and unstable conditions for investors and property owners. The bottom line is that the market

is very slow-moving, but it is moving. Any forward progress, even minuet is a better option than no movement at all. Though conditions are somewhat harsh, it is not all negative and dour on the real estate front. There are actually some upsides to recessions and cyclical real estate markets. For one, lessees and potential property purchasers have been able to capitalize on much lower rents along with generous concessions. This along with lower purchase prices for properties that only a few short years ago were at some of the highest levels in decades.

Reduced rents have allowed businesses to either renew/lock into long-term favorable leases and/or allow new businesses to obtain spaces that may have been out of reach a few years ago. Some companies have even expanded, albeit a very small group. But nonetheless, the recession and downside of the market has been positive for a select amount of businesses. While we cannot ignore the 20% to 30% overall vacancy rate in the office sector and that the first quarter of 2011 has slowed a bit, it still presents opportunity to

place potential tenants into premium spaces that may be operating on restricted/tight budgets or limited funding. Whether it is existing renewals looking to perhaps â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;move upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or new start-ups, everyone is looking for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;good dealâ&#x20AC;? and as commercial property professionals, we have these circumstances in which there are some good opportunities to make deals. For instance, there are many good choices and spaces available for rent in Somerset County, specifically along the Route 22/202 corridor from Bridgewater to Branchburg for office space. Rental rates are very attractive and lease terms have become very flexible, as most landlords and owners have become more risk averse in the last two years and realize to a degree, that securing tenants, even in the short term is a better alternative to empty, vacant space. They understand (though often reluctantly) that offering concessions and lower rates to a portion of these new type and potential tenants may help them better weather the economic storm and as the economy improves so to will some of their businesses. The potential outcome will be in the form of a portion of renewals and possible expansions along with lengthier lease terms as well. The effective result of lower rates and valueadded concessions will most likely be an increase in tenant stability for office properties. It goes without saying, but I will anyway- stable tenancy equals stable income and that is one of the goals I believe most share in commercial real estate.

Heller Industrial Parks signs 309,000 s/f renewal in South Brunswick, NJ

E

DISON, NJ — Heller Industrial Parks, one of the nation’s largest privately held owners and developers of industrial real estate, has signed longterm tenant Victory Packaging, Inc. to Frank Caccavo, Jr. a 309,000 s/f, 10-year renewal at a Heller industrial facility in South Brunswick. Victory Packaging, which has been a Heller customer since the early 1990s, uses the space for the warehouse and distribution of corrugated cartons and material dedicated to the commercial and residential moving industry.

BOMA reports strong asset mgmt. balancing dips in income levels WASHINGTON, DC — The private sector of the U.S. commercial real estate industry saw a 1.8 percent drop in rental income levels and a 1.2 percent decrease in total income, according to the 2011 Experience Exchange Report® (EER), which is released by the Building Owners and Manager Association (BOMA) International in collaboration with Kingsley Associates. This modest decrease in income likely reflects the continuing challenges and uncertainties in the overall economic market. Tempering the negative effects of this dip in income on overall asset financial performance, were notable decreases in utility expenses (-5.5%) and fixed expenses (-9.2%), suggesting that property managers and owners are closely managing their assets and carefully monitoring expenses. Many property professionals are employing low- and no-cost energy reduction strategies to reduce utility expenses, which help offset increases in energy costs, and are making successful appeals of real estate tax bills that don’t always reflect the current market value of commercial buildings. Together, fixed expenses and utilities comprise some of the most significant expense outlays in commercial office buildings. ■

Frank Caccavo, Jr. of Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant in the negotiation process and was instrumental in negotiating the lease extension. “It’s so gratifying for us to see the relationships we have built with both Frank and Victory over 20 years extend into the future,” said David Paster, vice president, Heller Industrial Parks, Inc. “Victory Packaging has been pleased with the Heller Industrial Park space and we intend to improve that level of satisfaction in the years to come.” ■ Victory Packaging facility

Southern NJ commercial real estate trends reversing in 2011

T

he southern New Jersey’s industrial real estate market posted 176,000 s/f of positive absorption in the second quarter of 2011, driving vacancy down to the single digits. Over the Joseph Gibson past 12 months, occupancy in the market grew by over 460,000 s/f compared to the 566,000 s/f loss suffered during the previous four quarter

interval. Trends in demand seem to be shifting this year as third-party logistics companies account for 100,000 s/f of retraction while gains from the wholesale trade sector offset these losses. In contrast, since the beginning of the last recession, wholesale and retail tenants shrank while third-party logistics companies accounted for over 300,000 s/f of available space reductions. The manufacturing sector is also reversing course with a contribution of over 260,000 square feet of positive absorption so far dur-

ing 2011. The manufacturing sector has been hit the worst since 2008 and accounts for nearly 500,000 s/f of negative absorption since the onset of the last recession. Asking rental rates for the industrial space in the region are approximately $1.00 less since their peak in 2007, a 20% reduction. In spite of depressed pricing, asking rents have hovered around their current average of $3.89 psf per-year for the past three quarters, giving hope that the bottom has been found. The office market has also experienced a few trend reversals. While absorption in 2011 is near zero levels, the composition of demand drivers and losers has shifted. Financial activities firms, the main occupancy losers since the onset of the recession, account for nearly 100,000 s/f of positive absorption over the last four quarters. In contrast, the professional services sector, one that posted demand gains since 2008, has shown signs of weakening after shedding over 100,000 s/f of occupancy since this time last year. The education and healthcare sector, once claiming the top spot in demand drivers since the beginning of the last recession, has shown little activity in the past year. This is expected to change in the short-term as deals in the works should prove to positively impact the office market. Average asking rents for office space in the region have moved downward only slightly since their peak in 2007. This is more of a strategic play by landlords than it is a testament to resiliency in pricing. While higher asking rents favor landlords during lease renewal negotiations, new leases are getting signed at a 15 to 25 percent discount below asking in order to fill vacancy. Free rent is still written into proposals in order to win deals, but at a lesser rate than was seen in 2009 and 2010. Average deal terms are around five years, up from four during the tail end of the recession, signaling that decision makers have become somewhat more confident in future revenue streams.

The Awakening Pittsburgh Industrial Market

T

hrough the first five months of 2011, the Pittsburgh Industrial Market remained stabile yet flat in terms of absorption and pricing. Vacancy remained in the 10% range with Louis V. Oliva few significant transactions taking place. Speculative construction remained non-existent and the few large blocks of class A space (120-150,000 s/f) remained available. Several

3000 McClaren Woods buildings in the historically tight Northwest Submarket and historically active West Submarket have been on the market for 12 to 18 months with historical shelf life of 9 to 12 months.

Then came June and July and while this is usually the end of the school year and start of the vacation season, several significant transactions were completed or announced. Two significant transactions oc-

curred in the Alta Vista Business Park, a KOZ development started in 2001, and located at Interstate 70 in Bentleyville, Washington County. A speculative 52,000 s/f building which sat idle for over 18 months reached a lease agreement with Weatherford, an international energy company. In addition, Gardner Denver, a manufacturer announced a major expansion for a 100,000 s/f build to suit transaction. In the West/Airport submarket, Cellone’s Bakery acquired the Robinson Commerce Center, a 180,000 s/f renovation project that sat vacant for two

years. Cellone’s is expanding their operations and will be consolidating into the larger facility. A similar transaction occurred with Amcom, the business office supply company that announced it was consolidating two separate facilities into 3000 McClaren Woods by leasing 33,000 s/f of the remaining 49,000 s/f. This transaction will result in the start of construction for the last building in McClaren Woods, a 130,000 s/f building. Also in the West/Airport submarket, Imperial Land Corporation announced the start of Phase II in the Findlay Industrial Park which will bring over 220 acres of land into play in 2012. Lastly, one of the largest speculative investment transactions in recent memory occurred with New York based Rugby Realty who acquired a vacant 540,000 s/f warehouse as a result of the bankruptcy of local furniture retailer Roomful Express. I n B u t l e r C o u n t y, T h e Buncher Company started site development on Jackson Point Commerce Center, a mixed use light industrial and commercial property project on I-79 at Rte. 528/Rte. 19. This will be the first speculative industrial project in Butler County in over five years. These transactions will not impact statistics under the Third Quarter but it bodes well for the remainder of the year. The Pittsburgh Industrial Market always seems to lag the National Economy (in both expansion and recession) so this may be a lag from improving conditions in 2010. However, with conflicting economic data on a national level, it is difficult to predict with certainty how the second half of 2011 will play out; especially with the ongoing debt crisis in Greece and the unresolved Debt Ceiling issues in the United States. However, it is factual to state that given the dearth of speculative construction in 2011 and recent interest and activity on the few remaining significant class A vacancies, the Pittsburgh Industrial Market could find itself with a significant shortage of class A industrial space in 2012; especially if economic conditions improve.

SHOPPING CENTERS Keeping customers engaged and their brand relevant

Gruskin Group says retailers will leverage the ‘4Cs’

H

istorically, conventional wisdom suggested that retail environments be updated every three to five years to remain “fresh” and plugged into the consumer marketplace. Today, the cycle Kenneth Gruskin is more of an ongoing process, says Gruskin Group “The explosion of technology and the subsequent real-time access to thousands of petabytes of data through smart phones, tablets, and computers, coupled what we refer to as the four ‘C’s’—convergence, convenience, connection, and cost – are having a meaningful and collateral impact on retail. This, in turn, has allowed fickle consumers in our ‘immediate gratification’ environment to flip the personalization promise on retailers from the very nice ‘have it your way’ offer to ‘provide it my way or it’s the highway,” said Kenneth Gruskin, principal and founder of Gruskin Group. “As a result, retailers are rolling out ‘experience store’ concepts, combining physical

and virtual strategies with localization and individualization to keep customers engaged and their brand relevant to their physical and digital lives,” Gruskin said. According to Gruskin Group, in order to offer this kind of social experience retailing, retailers will offer their own unique recipe of the 4Cs: Convergence: with the unification of social networking, commerce, and technology, augmented reality (AR) will become a key technology that will help to close the digital divide that separates our physical and virtual domains. Also, retailers will form brand sharing partnerships to provide compelling alignments that will attract customers and get them invited into their lives and communities through the integration of SER (social experience retailing) and CTR (convenience transaction retailing). Convenience: retail products, services, and virtual goods being provided through multiple physical and virtual channels will become ubiquitous to the end user. Localization will become “neighbor hooding” with virtual, smaller and better trained, localized brick-andmortar facilities supporting a

retailer’s embedded customer base while offering a global reach. The supply chain distribution system will be updated to provide instant gratification by delivering goods and services continued in next issuse of MAREJ

Risk management & impact on insurance premiums

I

t is no secret that we are living in a very litigious society. You can’t pick up a newspaper or listen, watch, or read a newscast these days without having it hit you front and center. It is also no great Ed Kochman secret that the tighter the economy gets there is a correlated increase in ‘slip and fall’ and other nuisance type accidents occurring in shopping center common areas, retail

stores and in office building public areas. These are issues that every property owner, developer, or manager has had to deal with. A company which employs a combination of proactive risk management techniques, enterprise risk management, and incorporates those with a comprehensive ‘Transfer of Risk’ Program can usually reduce the cost of their liability insurance significantly and recapture the associated costs within a year or two. Once a company has adopted such programs and presented their plan to their insurance

broker and the insurance company underwriters, working together with the insured, the results of this endeavor can be monitored for effectiveness. Just the act of documenting to your company’s Insurance Underwriter demonstrates the Insured’s active involvement in reducing risk and, in effect, partnering with the insurance company. Reducing and eliminating potential risks is congruous with reducing premiums. After all, reducing the exposure and managing exposure should have a positive effect on reducing premiums. Often while in the throes of a difficult economy such as we are presented with now, a property manager may either postpone or put aside some minor repairs such as a parking lot pothole, a broken storm sewer grate, or cracks/uneven pavements trying to preserve capital. The shortsightedness of this can, and has in many instances, come back to haunt that property manager, owner, or developer. All of those repairs are just that, repairs, and therefore considered part of ordinary CAM charges which are in most instances reimbursable to the landlord by the tenants. By way of example, not fixing one single pavement crack can result in a slip and fall accident resulting in a claim (even those fictitious claims) in the tens of thousands of dollars. I have seen all too often where a ‘questionable’ slip and fall in a parking lot or on a sidewalk ended up with the insurance company settling with a payout anywhere from ten thousand dollars plus medical costs for total payouts in the neighborhood of thirty thousand dollars or more. All this conceivably could have been avoided for a repair of only a few hundred dollars or less. When it is time for your property insurance renewal, the first thing that the underwriters are going to access is the claims history on the account. And surely, anything you can do as an insured to reduce those claims will translate into lower premiums. As part of a proactive risk management program, you would be reviewing your claims history well in advance of your renewal process. You should develop and implement a proactive enterprise risk management program with your risk consultant, carrier continued on page 17C

SHOPPING CENTERS Majority of retailers voice optimism

Levin Management mid-year retail survey

N

ORTH PLAINFIELD, NJ — Retail sales were sluggish during the first-half of 2011, but the results were what store owners and managers expected according to the findings of a mid-year Matthew Harding survey conducted by Levin Management Corporation. At the same time, more than 50% of the retailers surveyed remain optimistic about the rest of the year. The trends emerged from the third Levin Management survey within the past 18 months, designed to assess sales results and thinking among the company’s roster of 1,000 tenants. Levin’s management and leasing portfolio includes more than 90 open-air shopping centers located primarily in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. The prior, post-holiday survey conducted by Levin in January, 2011, found nearly 62% of retailers voicing optimism for 2011. Just 15.4% expressed pessimism. The latest survey, which covered January through June, 2011, produced a nearly 50-50 split between retailers reporting a sales decline and those that indicated in-store sales in the first half of 2011 were “the same” or “better” compared with the first six months of 2010. “The results indicate that the economy and recession are still affecting retail sales, which are a prime benchmark for the economy’s overall performance,” said Matthew Harding, Levin Management’s president and chief operating officer. “The results match the expectations from the earlier surveys. Nearly two-thirds expressed optimism at the start of 2011, and more than 62% of responders at midyear indicated the first-half was either better than expected, or what they anticipated.” Customers Spending Less; Economy Gets Mixed Reviews Customer traffic, spending results, and hiring trends remain mixed in the Mid-Year Survey, mirroring the results of the previous Levin survey. For customer traffic, the split was again nearly 50-50 between those reporting lower traffic

and those citing either the same or higher traffic. While surveyed retailers reported a strong Easter season – 52.6% had Easter sales that were the same or higher than in 2010 – overall, customers have been spending less per transaction during the first half of 2011 compared with 2010: Just 18.1% of retailers reported shoppers spending more per transaction compared to a year ago. A total of 27.7% of responders cited increased markdowns across the board, and 39.3% indicated selective markdowns of products for promotional

purposes; 32.8% said their markdown policy had remained the same as last year. The economy drew mixed reviews from surveyed retailers: Forty-six% said the economy has not been a factor in their sales while 41.4% indicated the impact of the recession for the first half of 2011 was “largely negative.” Just 12.5% called the economy a positive factor. The extreme and snowy weather this winter played a big role in the year-to-date performance for retailers according to the survey results. Nearly 51% of respondents said continued on page 17C

EW YORK, NY — Greg Walsh from Villanova University is the first recipient of the Kieran P. Quinn Villanova Undergraduate Award presented by The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Foundation. Kieran P. Quinn, managing director, Guggenheim Partners and chairman of the ICSC Foundation, donated $25,000 to the ICSC Foundation this year to endow the Kieran P. Quinn Villanova University Undergraduate Award. Quinn, a long time member of the International Council of Shopping Centers, wanted to leave a legacy and contribute to the next generation of students interested in studying retail real estate at his alma mater, Villanova University. Walsh is currently enrolled in the Villanova School of Business as a finance major and real estate minor. Out of curiosity Walsh signed up for a real estate class, which ulti-

Levin Management mid-year . . . continued from page 15C weather had negatively impacted their stores’ year-to-date results, and only 29% believed that weather conditions did not affect sales. More Retailers Set to Expand The optimism that is being voiced in the retail ranks is turning into more store openings. Nearly one-quarter of those surveyed indicated that their companies have already opened new stores in the first six months of 2011, and nearly 20% said that additional stores will be opened between now and the end of the year. “Clearly, there continues to be a great deal of uncertainty in the retail marketplace,” said Harding. “We see some hopeful signs in the latest numbers, especially in the number of stores that have opened or will open new units this year, while noting that the effects of the recession haven’t completely worn off. At the very least, there is continued stabilization within the retail ranks, some hiring is expected, and only a small%age of those surveyed are pessimistic about the rest of the year.” ■

BROKERAGE DIRECTORY Colliers International’s Northern & Central New Jersey Flash Report

Moderate job growth keeps office market stable but stagnant

T

he more things change, the more they stay the same. As we come to the end of the fi rst half of 2011, market indicators are virtually identical to their levels a year ago. As of 2Q11, the overall availability rate for the Northern and Central New Jersey office market is 20.2 percent, the same as 2Q10, while only a penny separates the average asking rent during the same time frame ($22.37/sf versus $22.38/sf gross, plus tenant electric). These numbers compare unfavorably to the previous quarter when 20.0 percent of offi ce space remained available, with an average asking rent of $22.56/sf. It should be noted that our 1Q11 report indicated an availability rate of 19.5 percent; however, proposed plans of mixed-use development for the 1.4 million square foot former AlcatelLucent campus off Route 10 in Hanover had it temporarily pulled off the market. It is now included as available space, and the corresponding availability rate has been adjusted for 1Q11. On a positive note, the percentage of available sublease space on the market continues to decline. As of 2Q11, only 13.3 percent of the space on the market falls in the sublease category, the lowest level since 3Q00. While some of the decrease results from terms expiring and, therefore, now available on a direct basis, landlords are still relieved that they don’t have to compete as aggressively with lower rents, against high quality space available on a secondary basis from tenants. Despite the statistics, market players continue to remain upbeat. There seems to be an uptick in activity, as more and more space showings continue to take place. Much of this is simply “shopping around”, but deals are still taking a long time to happen. Both landlords and tenants continue to play tugof-war, trying to gain leverage, thinking the market pendulum is swinging in their favor. Several large tenants are surveying the market, and occasionally, one fi nds a home. Panasonic, for example, will receive a 102.4 million tax credit from the state of New Jersey to move its North American headquarters from Secaucus to a new development in Newark. Additional incentives will be of-

shopping and entertainment within walking distance. Market players are still waiting for improvements in the economy. New Jersey’s aging population has helped the medical/health care industry grow, but a spark is needed to drive job growth in other sectors.

Perhaps increasing focus on renewable resources and technology will be the catalyst. As a whole, New Jersey experienced three consecutive months of job expansion, largely in the private sector, from February through April 2011. While May employment figures were
