A Few Notes this Coming Year...

Net Absorption by Type (SF)

The biggest stories of 2012 will include Walmart’s Neighborhood Markets, which should close on several sites and may even begin construction this year. We should see some big-box leasing with the potential for new big-box retailers to enter the market. We will also see several smaller concepts and restaurants enter the market. Dunkin’ Donuts will look for sites throughout Omaha but may wait until 2013 to open any stores. As long as the economy continues to improve, we should see vacancy rates continue to fall.

Retail both nationally and locally saw improvement in 2011 after a few tough years. Retail sales nationally increased 3.5%. Nebraska retail sales increased 5.2% and Iowa saw an increase of 5.4% according to the International Council of Shopping Centers. Retail real estate market also saw improvement during 2011. Total absorption for 2011 was 140,701 square feet in the metro, dropping the vacancy rate to 11.2%. The majority of the absorption happened in the fourth quarter. Small deals accounted for most of the absorption with few deals over 5,000 square feet. Big-box leasing is one area of the market that continues to struggle with a net negative absorption of 25,740 square feet. Council Bluffs, East Omaha and Sarpy County West continue to have the highest vacancy rates.

West Dodge Corridor In 2011, the West Dodge Corridor saw positive absorption of 12,095 square feet and kept its vacancy rate low at 4.8%. This corridor had seen an increase in vacancy until the fourth quarter when over 13,000 square feet of space was leased. We look for this corridor to stay

strong throughout 2012. Village Pointe saw a few changes including the closing and releasing of the former Melting Pot space. Kobe Steakhouse opened in their new building at 168th and Burke. We also saw Hy-Vee open at 180th and Pacific Street.

The 72nd and Dodge/midtown area of Omaha continues to be in a transition period with plans ongoing for the eventual renovation or redevelopment of Crossroads Mall. We saw the closing of Border’s on the southwest corner of 72nd and Dodge Street. The area did see positive absorption of 34,075 square feet with a vacancy rate at 9.7%. We expect that 2012 will bring new names to the area and possibly an announcement soon on who will fill the former Old Country Buffet location at 78th and Dodge.

Southwest

By: Dan Dutton, World Group Commercial Real Estate

With 84,372 square feet of positive absorption, the vacancy rate lowered to 9.6%. West Center Corridor from 120th to 144th Streets (including L Street) saw the most action in 2011. • Montclair On Center, located on the southeast corner of 132nd & West Center Road, added the 20,000 square foot Tile Shop.

• Thomasville located in West Center Oaks closed and was quickly replaced by Bridal Traditions which relocated from their store at 108th and West Center Road. • L Street Marketplace saw a few new restaurants including Noodles & Co., Qdoba and Cheddars. The Center also added Charming Charlie’s to their lineup. • The West Center Corridor from 168th to 186th Streets saw the closings of Blockbuster and Fuddruckers, which was quickly replaced by Omaha’s first Brazilian Steakhouse.

Sarpy West

By: Dan Dutton, World Group Commercial Real Estate

The South 72nd Street corridor continues to be in a growth pattern and we expect a few new announcements in the coming year, including the possibility of a new shopping center. Some of this growth comes at the expense of the South 84th Street corridor which continues to struggle. Shadow Lake saw the closing of Border’s along with the addition of Charming Charlie’s in 2011. Vacancy continues to stay high at 14.1% and the area did see negative absorption of 5,792 square feet in 2011.

Sarpy East/Bellevue This area saw little change in 2011 with 13,911 square feet of positive absorption and a good vacancy rate of 5.3%. It was one of the only areas of the metro that

East Omaha is an area of the metro that continues to struggle with negative absorption of 14,812 square feet and a vacancy rate at 17%. With little new development in this area we don’t believe that this will

change much during 2012. For those tenants looking for space in this area, they can find low rents and large Landlord concessions.

North Central

By: Dan Dutton, World Group Commercial Real Estate

North Central Omaha stayed strong with a low vacancy rate and 6,269 square feet of space taken off the market in 2011. Although the area did see a positive absorption rate, it really saw very few deals. This area

will continue stay about the same during 2012. Tenant’s looking for space should find very competitive deals.

Northwest Omaha struggled in 2011 with negative absorption of 30,344 square feet pushing the vacancy rate up to 9.3%. This area did see Borders close at 132nd and Maple but with that closing also brings word that the site is under contract for a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market store.

Council Bluffs Council Bluffs is another area of the metro that continues to struggle, but did see positive growth in 2011 with 40,927 square feet of space being taken off the market. The vacancy rate stayed high at 17.3%. The issue with Council Bluffs has to do with existing retailers in the market moving to new developments but leav-

ing their former locations vacant. With rumors swirling about what might happen at Mall of the Bluffs, we can expect to see brighter days in the future. For the time being, especially with big-box retail, it will be a tenant’s market.
