paper since 1950, the property covers two city blocks within the vibrant Mount Vernon neighborhood surrounded by major Baltimore institutions including Mercy Medical Cen- ter, The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, Center Stage theater, and an expanding residential base. The asset offers large efficient floor plans for office tenants and is well located for alterna- tive uses, given its visibility from the JFX, including retail, hospitality and residential. The Baltimore Sun is a ten- ant in the building and has a lease in place through June 2018 with an option to renew. Atapco will manage the asset from its headquarters office in Baltimore. Atapco extends its appre- ciation to CBRE for their representation of the seller, Tribune Media Company and to Ballard Spahr for their legal representation of the purchaser. n Ideally positioned in the fast-growing and densely populated “Golden Triangle” region of the Central PA sub- market in Dauphin County, Capital Logistics Center offers employers accessibility to an expansive and diverse labor pool. Tenants also benefit from the County’s strong demo- graphics, including population growth of 8.1% from 2000 to 2016. n s/f remains available for de- velopment. “This transaction represents a multitude of asset classes including stabilized core prod- uct, vacant value-add product and additional land develop- ment,” said Blinebury. “In ad- dition to the highly desirable location, extensive renovations completed by Woodmont/AEW leave the assets well-posi- tioned for the user community, as evidenced by a major food distributor’s recent decision to occupy 400,000 s/f of class A space.”

I t’s a cautiously optimistic time for commercial real estate investors, who are finding attractive opportunities despite some concerns about market stability. The deals in the New York tri-state area as well as South Florida remain plentiful, and private lenders continue to provide an infusion of turnaround capital in order to take advantage of this en- vironment. But will this trend last, and how will the new ad- ministration impact the future of commercial real estate? In the following Q&A, indus- try veteran Sanford Herrick, who is the founder and manag- ing principal of commercial real estate investment company Case Real Estate Capital, LLC, discusses the current lending climate and how Case is lever- aging opportunities. Q: How would you de- scribe the commercial real estate market today now that there’s a new adminis- tration at the White House? A: “The markets are still unsettled, but there’s been more optimism since President Trump was elected with his support of deregulation.” Q: What geographic mar- kets are the best for value- add opportunities right now? A: “Our firm is very active in the Northeast and Mid- Atlantic, as well as in South Florida. Right now we’re seeing more activity in Florida where there is a lot of demand for money. Whether the demand is reasoned is questionable, but many developers feel if there’s money available, let’s do some- thing with it.” Q: The amount of newly- raised capital targeting real estate is at near record levels. Do you expect the velocity of deals to remain

finding that there are fewer of those deals around compared to a year and a half ago.” Q. Do you see opportuni- ties in the retail sector? A. “For the past couple of years, the constant chirp of discussion on e-commerce has continued and grown louder. Most people are taking their business to the internet versus the brick-and-mortar stores, and I think that trend will continue.” Q: What are the benefits of working with Case? A: “We can get to a yes very quickly, and we can deploy funds in the $10 million to $30 million range within a month. For example, we did a first mortgage bridge loan on a site in Woodridge, NJ for over $15 million and it took only 33 days from the day it came in to the day it funded. Similarly, our turnaround time was 30 days from origination to closing for a first mortgage loan inMontauk, NY for over $17 million.” Q: What is the company’s goal for the remainder of 2017? A: “We are planning an ex- pansion of personnel with plans to hire an acquisition officer and an asset/manager ana- lyst within the next couple of months. Also, as we keep get- ting more money committed to us from our financial partners, we plan to continue to ramp up investment activities, and respond to the middle market’s need for smart situational capital.” n Volpi , VP and Alex Rosen- berg , sales associate.

strong? A: “There’s a steady stream of money coming into the market with a number of new and sea- soned participants managing that money. As a result, deals are more competitive, which in turn, is driving down yields in an environment where there is concern about stability. We’ve had a seven year run of increase in value and there’s some ques- tion about how long that can last. We’ve already seen cracks in high-end markets like NYC. The great concern now is how long this money can be reason- ably deployed.” Q: Traditional lenders have become cautious with tighter lending standards. What do you attribute that to? A: “The banks have lots of issues and are dealing with increased regulations as the regulators want them to have less exposure to real estate. Traditional lenders are step- ping back, leaving the market up to private lenders to a great degree.” Q: Competition to place capital has been strong. How does Case source new opportunities? A: “We’ve ramped up our in- vestment activities and we proj- ect a rise in financing volume. As an originated mortgage lender and a buyer of loans, we pick through the market to find situations that can get us the yields with the safety and timing components that we want. Unfortunately, we’re

es industry (as defined by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statis- tics industry sectors of Educa- tion Services and Health Care and Social Assistance). Figure 1 ranks the 25 larg- est U.S. metropolitan areas (in terms of total employment) by the Eds & Meds sector’s share of total local employ- ment. Philadelphia, Boston and Pittsburgh have been at the top of this ranking for decades, trading the lead in- frequently. The next three— New York, Baltimore and St. Louis—also show markedly higher concentrations. These six metros—the “Big 6”—con- tain many of the nation’s lead- ing hospitals and institutions of higher education, and the sector holds significant influ- ence in their local economies. Multifamily and retail are the major CRE sectors that most directly benefit from an Eds & Meds presence, due to the relatively broad de- mand from education & health services workers for rental apartments and consumer purchases. In addition to being a growing source of demand for these real estate sectors, our research has discovered a more notable contribution: by providing a consistent source of employment growth across business cycles, Eds & Meds lowers volatility in multifamily and retail rents and vacancy. We looked at how our 25 largest employment markets performed over the past two business cycles relative to their concentrations of Eds & Meds. To measure the volatili- ty of a metro’s multifamily and retail market, we calculated its peak-to-trough decline in average rent during the past two recessions (2001 and 2007- 2009), and then the number of quarters it took to re-achieve the peak. We show some of the results in Figure 2, illustrating the relationship between a metro’s Eds & Meds concentration

and the decline in its average multifamily and retail rents during and after the 2007-

2009 recession. A discernible relationship shows that metros continued on page 10A

The township had acquired the units several years ago from a larger purchase of units from the original developer.

Sr. masterpiece course with clubhouse, golf shop, locker room, four dining areas and bar for relaxing. HARMONY TWP., NJ — Harker’s Hollow Golf & Coun- try Club, one of the oldest country clubs in New Jersey, is going on the auction block in July. Max Spann has scheduled the auction for July 11, 2017 at 1 p.m. at the country club, located on 950 Uniontown Rd., Harmony Township. The 18-hole golf course is set on about 176.7 acres nestled in the hills of Scotts Mountain. Opened in 1929, the course features a classic layout de- signed by Robert White, the ¬ first president of the PGA of America. The country club features a banquet hall/restaurant, St. Andrews Pub and Tee Room for casual dining as well as a locker room, pro shop, administrative offices, grounds keeping build- ing, two tennis courts, a gated pool and a hot tub. A liquor license is included in the sale. Alternative uses include sub- dividing the clubhouse and associated buildings off from the land and repurposing their use. The land could then be sold off or used for agriculture or recreation. The country club is conve- niently located off Rte. s 57 & I-78 and close to Phillipsburg. “It’s not every day that an op- erating country club comes on the market,” said Dann. “This is a unique opportunity for in- vestors looking for a turn-key solution, or to repurpose the property or sell off acreage.” “The course is 6,551 yards from the back tees, but plays much longer and harder thanks to the undulating terrain,” NewJerseyGolf.com said. “The greens are small and fast with breaks ranging from subtle to dramatic. Lopatcong Creek runs the entire length of the golf course providing additional challenge on several holes.

Stewart’s Restaurant

Wantagh, NY — Breslin Realty is proud to announce the recent Grand Opening of Stewart’s Restaurant at 1161 Wantagh Ave. in Wantagh, at Willow Wood Shoppes. Stewart’s Restaurant is

occupying 3,000 s/f of the shopping center, in the space formerly occupied by Spasso’s Pizzeria. Stewart’s Restaurants are classic 1950’s style fast-food restaurants with stores across the north-eastern United States. Their new Wantagh location will be their first on Long Island. The transaction was ar- ranged and negotiated for the landlord by Robert Delavale of the Breslin organization. Additional Willow Wood re- tail includes Petco, Starbucks, Piecraft Pizza Bar, Jani Res- taurant, Kidville, ProHealth Care Associates, Astoria Bank, Weight Watchers, NEFCU, Stand Up MRI, Ascent Audiol- ogy, Supercuts, Yogurt City, Peak Performance Physical Therapy, and Dina’s Nails. n continued from page 3A The Eds & Meds . . . with high concentrations of Eds & Meds may buffer their multifamily and retail markets from larger declines in rent and occupancy than metros with a lower Eds &Meds pres- ence may experience. Data for the 2001 recession revealed a similarly credible relationship for multifamily markets but were inconclusive for retail, as a majority of retail markets did not incur rent declines during that business cycle. Conclusion With remarkably stable long-term growth, the Eds & Meds industry continues to infiltrate the various sectors of commercial real estate. The credible relationship between the concentration of Eds & Meds in a metro’s local econo- my and the volatility its mul- tifamily and retail markets experience may be particularly valuable to commercial real estate stakeholders at this stage of the cycle.

Expert panel discusses impact of current trends on CRE industry NAIOP NJ Chapter meeting examines “The Rise of Experiential Retail”

EANECK,NJ —While the future of brick-and- mortar retailers is de- cidedly uncertain, undesirable locations are likely to suffer as the market transforms, while well-located properties that can attract “experiential” retailers will thrive. This was one of the key take- aways shared by industry ex- perts at NAIOP NJ’s June 6 chapter meeting, held at the TeaneckMarriott at Glenpointe. Led by Rockefeller Group’s Clark Machemer , the panel discussion focused on current retail trends, in particular the shift to “experiential retail” and its impact on commercial real estate development as well as opportunities for investors. “We are hearing a lot of talk about how traditional retail is dying,” said Machemer. “As developers and property owners struggle to determine the right mix of retailers, store sizes and formats, how can brick-and- mortar stores evolve to compete in today’s omnichannel world?” “We wouldn’t agree that re- tail is dying, but it’s definitely changing,” said Herbert Eil- berg , chief investment officer at Urban Edge Properties, whose company spent $500 million over the past six months buy- ing shopping center properties in northern New Jersey and the New York metro area. “The projects we’re interested in are necessity and value driven, and we’re looking at how we can complement them by adding to the experience. The word we like to use is engagement. Are we engaging the consumer?” Millennials Continue to Drive Decision Making Nancy Erickson , executive managing director with Col- liers International , cited the continued dominance of Millen- nials as the key decision-makers in terms of what’s next in retail. “We’re following their lead and focusing on tenants that offer something they can’t do on Ama- zon while they’re watching TV,” she said. “This includes restau- rants, discount fashion retail- ers and entertainment such as luxury dine-in movie theaters. Fitness and medical services, such as urgent care centers and medical spas, are also growing”. Erickson noted that food was “the number one discussion” at the recent International Coun- cil of Shopping Centers (ICSC) conference in Las Vegas. “We all want good food and we’re looking for something unique. Although T

and mixed-use projects.” Mark Pottschmidt , co- founder of Stanbery Devel- opment , agreed that food is replacing fashion as a key driver of foot traffic to the com- pany’s retail lifestyle centers and mixed-use projects. At Stanbery’s planned mixed-use project in Parsippany, he said, “We expect 30 to 40% of the tenants to be food operators ranging from fast casual to white table cloth. Amenities on the ground will drive demand for the apartments above.” Capital is Finding Quality Brian Whitmer , senior

director Metropolitan Area Capital Markets Group with Cushman & Wakefield, said investors have returned after a lull that resulted from un- certainty over interest rates and the new administration. “We’re seeing the capital and buyers come back into the market, and the interest is in quality retail properties with good tenant mixes,” saidWhit- mer. “Sellers are starting to become more active, and many of them have been looking at strategic dispositions of non- core, secondary and tertiary assets.” n
