SRS Real Estate Partners is proud to announce the opening of their Boston office and the addition of Jonathan Lapat, formerly a principal at Strategic Retail Advisors, who has joined SRS to lead the new office. The Boston office will serve as a hub for all activity within New England. The Boston and New York offices will form an interdependent relationship, with clients of both offices benefitting from the expanded coverage along the East Coast. Immediate plans to grow the Boston office include locating a physical location from which the Boston team will operate. The addition of the Boston office marks the twentieth SRS office in the United States and provides SRS' clients deep local knowledge in one of the most important retail markets in the country.
Jonathan joins SRS with more than 22 years of experience in retail real estate as managing principal and market leader for the Boston office. He most recently served as a principal at Strategic Retail Advisors, a retail real estate consulting and brokerage firm in Massachusetts. Focused on tenant representation throughout the Northeast, he was part of the team that established the firm in 2001. His career began many years prior at Trammell Crow Company where he specialized in small space requirements and developing service stations for Mobil Oil Corporation. He has an extensive client list and has worked with brands such as Charming Charlie, AMC Theatres, Carter’s, Gap, Inc., Jos. A. Bank, ULTA Beauty, Chico’s, Banana Republic, Victoria’s Secret, White House Black Market, Payless ShoeSource, F21 Red, Athleta and Bath & Body Works, among others.
Jonathan is an active member of ICSC and served as president for X Team International, an integrated network of retail specialists throughout the United States and Canada.
"The addition of Jonathan Lapat and the opening of our Boston office are red-letter events for SRS in New England," said Woody McMinn, president of North American brokerage. "Jonathan is a well-known and highly respected real estate professional in the Boston area. Together with our office in New York City, the SRS team in New England is a top-tier retail advisory team with broad coverage across the region."
“I’m very excited about this opportunity and to be part of such a great company,” said Lapat. “SRS has a national reputation that is second to none and I look forward to growing the brand here in New England.”
