Cannabis – Real estate and related legal concerns A majority of states in the United States permit the regulated sale of cannabis products. The federal government does not, with the exception of Epidiolex, which the FDA recently approved for the treatment of two rare and severe forms of epilepsy. In fact, at the federal level cannabis is in the same class with drugs like heroin and LSD, as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high poten- tial for abuse. The penalties for violations of federal law with respect to cannabis may in- clude lengthy prison sentences, significant fines and property forfeiture. Accordingly, man- aging the legal challenges pre- sented by the conflict between state and federal law raises a number of issues for those en- gaging directly or indirectly in the business of manufacturing and selling cannabis products, including leasing, banking, fi- nancing, insurance, tax deduc- tions, and restructurings. Under the Obama admin- istration, Deputy Attorney General James Cole provided guidance to federal prosecu- tors to prioritize the prosecu- tion of activities that posed a serious threat to public safety (the “Cole Memo”). Subse- quently the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network issued a memorandum in February 2014 clarifying what services financial institutions are per- mitted to provide to canna- bis-related businesses while remaining compliant with the Bank Secrecy Act. Whatever comfort cannabis-related busi- nesses gained was diminished on January 4, 2018, when then U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions rescinded the Cole Memo. In addition, the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment, which bars the DOJ from funding the prosecu- tion of conduct that is in strict compliance with applicable state medical cannabis laws, was due to expire December 7, 2018 but was extended for a short period. It remains to be seen whether it will be extend- ed when the current spending bill expires on December 21st. The law in this area continues to evolve; Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell included provisions in the proposed 2018



Farm Bill, which, if approved, would fully legalize indus- trial hemp, a common source of CBD. Despite being nonpsy- choactive, CBD is currently illegal as a cannabis extract. While at the state level many states are seeking to provide guidance and legal protections for cannabis-related businesses that operate legally, absent definitive federal regulation or law, the uncertainty, doubt and limitations presented by the inherent conflict between state and federal law still exist. Under the applicable federal law, not only is the property of an owner who engages in the manufacturing or distribution of cannabis products subject to forfeiture, but so is the property of an owner who knowingly leases property for the purpose of manufacturing or distribut- ing cannabis products. Accord- ingly, landlords typically seek significantly higher rents to compensate for the additional risk. Furthermore, the leas- ing of mortgaged property to a cannabis-related business may be a violation of the law or the terms of the underlying financ- ing agreements. A Landlords' counsel need to incorporate appropriate protections into the relevant agreements to ensure that the lessee complies with state and federal laws, regulations and guidelines, as well as local zoning and other agreements that are relevant to contemplated use of the property. Moreover, due to the continued illegality of cannabis at the federal level, purchasers of real estate will have a dif- ficult time obtaining mortgage financing or title insurance from traditional sources where they intend to use the property for a cannabis-related business. Cannabis businesses legally operating at the state level are also unable to obtain tra- ditional sources of financing as banks and credit card com-

panies in the United States adhere to federal policies that disallow service to cannabis businesses. In April 2018, the Small Business Administration published guidelines that make clear that cannabis-related businesses are not eligible for SBA loans. In addition, cannabis businesses legally operating at the state level face challenges obtaining insurance because of the conflict between federal and state laws. Even if there is a valid insurance policy in place, insurers may seek to challenge the scope of loss coverage or rely upon spe- cific exclusions that are often set forth in insurance policies based on the business’ under- lying violation of federal law. In addition to the foregoing challenges, cannabis-related businesses may not be able to take advantage of tax deduc- tions for expenses incurred in connection with the sale of cannabis-related products. Moreover, in the event that a cannabis-related business fails, it may not avail itself of the protections of the United States Bankruptcy Code if its activities are illegal activities under federal law. The law in this area is com- plex and evolving, and those engaging or investing in busi- nesses in the cannabis indus- try should consult with quali- fied counsel. Brian A. Haskel is aMem- ber of Sills Cummis &Gross P.C. in New York City, where he practices in the firm’s corporate group. He has represented individu- als, businesses and funds involved in the cannabis sector in connection with offerings, financings and other transactions.  The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of Sills Cummis &Gross P.C.

SESI Consulting Engineers Parking lot to residential community: Rejuvenating Metuchen’s Town Center R for years to come. Before After

eal estate success arises when a community’s needs and wants are fulfilled. Metuchen provided just the opportunity for a dis- cerning developer to create success. The town caters to a major commuter community, but was lacking downtown residential options and did not have adequate open spaces for the public to enjoy. Woodmont Properties has developed a beautiful solution: Pearl Street Plaza. By redeveloping an ex- isting ground-level parking lot, the group was able to build a transit-oriented town center adjacent to the train station. This new location offers 273 one- and two- bedroom luxury units, 12,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, a half-acre of public plaza – to be used for famer’s markets, con- certs, etc—and a 750 parking space multi-level parking deck to be shared by the residents and commuters. Prior to Woodmont’s involve- ment, the property was under- utilized as a commuter park- ing lot. Woodmont’s proposed mixed-use development added value for all involved stake- holders. This enhancement required well-thought planning and engineering to create a benefit for the municipality and its residents. SESI’s engineer- ing design involved building and parking lot layout, grad- ing, drainage, and construction support services. The site has been designed to accommodate ADA access to all public spaces. Woodmont Properties looked beyond the site’s existing sur- face parking lot and recognized that the location was ideal for a multifaceted development. While it was a great location, the property was not immedi- ately suited for construction and SESI was brought on to help make the development a reality. SESI’s scope of work included environmental due diligence, geotechnical inves- tigation, and civil engineering design. SESI’s LSRP carried out Phase I and Phase II of the Environmental Site Assess- ment. SESI executed the site and foundation development, obtainedmunicipal, county and NJDOT permits, and oversaw construction. SESI is proud to have been part of this group of forward thinking professionals that redeveloped this property into a destination that will be uti- lized by the whole community

Headquartered in NJ, our work extends beyond the Northeastern US and spans various industries including residential, commercial, in- dustrial, manufacturing, and institutional.

Ein, Zang, Crotts and their seven-person team attribute their success to running a comprehensive and robust marketing campaign which generated over 150 confidentiality agreements and 12 offers. In Millsboro, DE, Marcus & Millichap announced the sale of Nanticoke Crossing, a 50,590 s/f retail property. The property traded at an 8.08 percent cap rate. Nanticoke Crossing consists of 50,590 s/f of retail space anchored by a high-performing WeisMarkets. The sale price of the property was confidential. The fully occupied neighbor- hood center was anchored by Food Lion for decades before it was acquired by Weis Markets as a result of the Ahold and Delhaize Group merger. Chris Burnham , vice presi- dent investments, in Marcus &Millichap’s Baltimore office, and Dean Zang had the list- ing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a local fam- ily, and represented the buyer, a Pennsylvania-based corpo- ration, who has requested to remain confidential. “Despite Weis’ short-term anchor lease, there was a tremendous amount of inter- est in Nanticoke Crossing,” Burnham said. The team successfully executed the sale within 95% of the asking price. “Regardless of lease-term, if the grocer has respectable sales, we are seeing strong buyer interest,” Zang added. Nanticoke Crossing was the 14th shopping center that Zang, Burnham and their seven-person team have com- pleted this year with two more slated to close by year end, including one on the Delmarva Peninsula. 

The new an- chor tenant replaced a former undersized 24,000 s/f grocer and was complimented by a new parking lot, redesigned façade, and energy-efficient lights as well as a brand new 3,800 s/f Pet Valu, marking

the third opening of Pet Valu within Heidenberg Properties’ portfolio. 2019 will bring even more growth opportunities for Heidenberg Properties. The 370,000 s/f Potomac Market- place in Ranson, WV, anchored by Home Depot, Kohl’s, and Weis, will be expanded for a new junior anchor. In addition, as a result of the Sears/Kmart bankruptcy filing, Heiden- berg Properties has exciting redevelopment plans for the 227,000 s/f Hershey Square Shopping Center in Hummel- stown, PA. According to COO Jason Lazar, “As it relates to the former Kmarts, we have

been planning the redevelop- ment of these centers with stronger tenants and desired uses. Although we aren’t pub- licly disclosing our plans yet, we are very excited for the value we will be creating and the enhanced shopping experi- ences that will unfold in 2019.” Ja s on La z a r j o i ned Heidenberg Properties Group in 2012 where he serves as its COO.

sorbing the approximate 25% increase to its portfolio. In- stead, the private development company continued to make deals through additional ac- quisitions and the strategic redevelopment of its portfolio. In early 2018, Heidenberg Properties completed Phase I of the redevelopment of Mt. Pocono Plaza in Mt. Pocono, PA. A former 86,000 s/f Kmart was replaced by Ollie’s Bargain Outlets and Planet Fitness bringing both treasure-hunt and healthy lifestyle tenancies to a market looking for unique experiences. Heidenberg Prop- erties is currently working on the remaining 40,000 s/f of well-located anchor space in Phase II. The developer also focused its attention on the Thompson Square Shopping Center in Monticello, NY acquired in January 2017. Anchored by ShopRite and Home Depot, the 240,000 s/f center benefited from prominent anchors but needed more dynamic uses for the inline stores. Ownership was able to relocate an exist- ing Subway to allow for a re- model and new prototype and in the process, created 8,413 s/f of contiguous space for the Middletown Medical Group. A new, well-trafficked location was key to Middletown Medi- cal’s decision to consolidate offices at Thompson Square. The Monticello trade area has recently experienced signifi- cant redevelopment including mega-casino Resorts World Catskills, the YO1 Wellness Center, and the impending Chatwal Lodge. Heidenberg Properties was also able to recapture a 13,000 s/f underutilized theater space and will announce plans for a highly desirable use in connec- tion with an expansion of the gross leasable area and other physical improvements to the shopping center in 2019. Heidenberg Properties con- tinued to grow its portfolio in the Mid-Atlantic, acquiring the

agent responds with “They won’t do that!” And that’s when I say (or yell) “Don’t Say No For The Prospect!” Yes, of course, there is a potential that they prospect could say no, but if you never ask them, isn’t that the same thing as them saying no? At least if you ask, you have a 50% shot they’ll say yes, vs a 0% shot if you never ask! Why do we do this? And I say “we” because I still do it too!! I believe it comes down to 3 things: a. Fear of rejection b. Lack of preparation

c. Potential embarrassment And all of these need to be overcome! 1. If you don’t ask, you are rejected anyway 2. Any agent with their salt should know they need excel- lent market knowledge and thorough intel on the retailers they are contacting 3. Who cares what people think of you? Get over it! On of the worse things for a leasing agent is to go to your market and drive by your competitor’s center and see a “Coming Soon” sign in the window of someone you

thought about calling but didn’t, because you “Said No For The Prospect”! Do me a favor right now… Stop what you’re doing, put down this paper, and call someone you’ve thought of call- ing for one of your vacancies but never got around to. DO IT RIGHT NOW! DIAL THE NUMBER!
