Real Estate and Urban Revitalization
Shopping center developers face major concerns and risks when committing huge sums of money to build large malls. Today, most markets are over-built with centers that are architect-led for design impact and tenanted with out-of-date concepts for stores, dining, services, entertainment, and culture.

J.C. Williams Group provides sound, statistically proven and experienced advice on choosing the right location, size, concept, tenants, leasing/operating procedures, marketing and management for shopping centers. We work as a key team member with the developers, engineers, architects, etc. to prepare a creative yet practical business plan. We ensure that the mall pleases and delights shoppers, works well for retailers, and generates strong revenue for the owners.
