At a meeting of the Midwest chapter of AACEI, DMA Managing Principal Charles Porter gave a talk on building trends in the construction industry from the developer point of view. He shared DMA’s experiences working with regional mall owners to reconfigure and reuse vacant department store space, and he reviewed trends involving nontraditional users, such as entertainment venues, multifamily housing, grocery stores, and wellness, medical, and educational facilities. The presentation addressed important planning and cost considerations and the underlying challenges of repurposing assets given current economic realities and market forces.
