Webinar: Houston Retail Outlook— How is the Houston Market Responding to the Pandemic?

Houston boasts a dynamic retail and restaurant scene that has been a requisite landing spot for new shopping, dining and entertainment users over the last few years. With a plethora of new mixed-use destinations in development or coming on line, can the market continue to absorb the new retail space despite pandemic-related restrictions and reduced occupancies?

Shopping Center Business and Texas Real Estate Business are hosting a panel of retail leaders to discuss how Houston is faring during the pandemic — and what they expect to see as the market moves forward. Join us Tuesday, October 6, from 1:00-2:15 CDT.

Panelists will include Mark Vondrak of InvenTrust Properties, Jonathan Hicks of SRS Real Estate Partners, Lacee Jacobs of Midway, David Luther of NewQuest Properties, Emily Durham of Waterman Steele Real Estate Advisors, and moderator Jake Donaldson of Method Architecture.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • What initiatives have retail landlords and operators taken to mitigate the disruption brought on by COVID-19?
  • What is the outlook in terms of leasing for the Houston market over the next six months?
  • What kinds of retail deals are capital sources targeting right now, and what is the Houston market seeing in terms of deal velocity and volume?
  • How will broader expectations for the Houston economy impact the performance of the retail market in the coming months?

NewQuest Properties, InvenTrust Properties and SRS Real Estate Partners are sponsoring the webinar, which will be hosted by Shopping Center Business and Texas Real Estate Business magazines.
