Since many of our office and industrial clients have retail operations as well, we have formed an alliance with SRS Real Estate Partners — one of the country’s leading retail space experts — to serve their needs. 

Thanks to this partnership, we are able to offer a full range of retail capabilities — from initial market research to site evaluation to the final construction — all as part of the overall Cresa experience.

Through SRS, our services include:

  • Due diligence — We’ll work with you to create a store profile based on your needs, looking at your standard trade area and occupancy costs to determine what kinds of space will fit your criteria.
  • Site selection — We’ll evaluate the demographics and psychographics of each market, looking at shopping behavior, traffic flows, and demand analysis with an eye toward assessing available spaces for suitability to your requirements. Once the right space has been identified, we’ll help you negotiate the lease.
  • Build-out — We can oversee every phase of your build-out — site planning, schematic design, permits, construction management, etc. — assuring that your store is in move-in condition on opening day.

In other words, we know the markets and we understand the trends — we even know where your competitors are located — and we can provide a complete turnkey solution for virtually any retail need, anywhere in the country.
