delivery would lower Amazon’s overhead cost to $1.00 per de- livery, compared to the current $5.00+ that Amazon pays now. If Amazon cut its delivery costs to 1/5th of the current level, it would allow the company to further disrupt the brick-and- mortar retail industry. Chris also touched on other tech- nologies: 3D printing (Additive Manufacturing), Virtual Real- ity, and Autonomous Vehicles. The data seems to show that these advanced technologies are going to shape the industry in the future, but no one seems to know when or how much they will impact it. Overall, I learned that some technological advancements will fuel growth in the indus- try and some will disrupt the industry. It is a good idea to begin planning how you can leverage these technologies to your advantage. As retail real estate professionals, we have to be ready to adapt to a constantly changing environ- ment, or risk becoming obso- lete. – Alexander Dawejko.

No- table retail tenants that have found success through the use of omni-channel commerce in- clude Disney, Bank of America, REI, Starbucks, and Chipotle, just to name a few. – Michelle Langborgh View on CRE Technology Since I joined the Metro team this past May, I have found ICSC’s research to be extremely valuable. ICSC’s detailed reports are packed with information that has helped bring me up to speed on the Retail Real Estate Industry as a whole. Fortu- nately, I was able to attend a presentation by ICSC’s Director of Research, Chris Gerlach, on the first day of the conference. Chris touched on many top- ics having to do with retail real estate, but I found his insights on technology to be the most striking. He discussed how the 800-pound gorilla of E-Commerce, Amazon.com, has been experimenting with drone-delivery. Drone-based Crossing in Milford has been buzzing with activity since its redevelopment was announced last year. RD Management signed leases with Pacific Den- tal Services and Cyclebar, two strong tenants that will add to the success of the center and provide exceptional offerings in health and wellness to the Milford community. The 3,240 s/f Pacific Dental Services and 2,560 s/f CycleBar will join existing retailers Stop & Shop, T.J.Maxx, HomeGoods, Starbucks, and Chipotle at the center and are expected to open in fall 2018.
