It continues to present opportunities for us to bring additional equity and expertise to fortify the in- vestment. Its redevelopment has created a more experien- tial and community-oriented place for customers to shop, eat, and gather, and for retail- ers to do business. At Kimco, we have concen- trated our focus on the top cities in the country, with Philadelphia being one of them. Despite Lincoln and Suburban being different projects – Lincoln a ground- up development and Subur- ban an existing redevelop- ment – both show our ability to leverage our retail real estate experience in a high- barrier-to-entry market, and both also display our growing expertise in multifamily.
