Retail Financing and Development
WRC’s background in retail development and financing expertise covers all categories to include grocery-anchored centers, power centers, lifestyle/town centers and mixed-use developments. Drawing on our diverse in-house development and ownership experience, WRC becomes creatively involved with its retail clients from project inception through completion by encouraging them to look beyond their retail development visions. WRC adds value to their retail client’s development/financing process with unparalleled expertise in each of the following areas:
• Land acquisition services
• Land entitlement
• Coordination of the development process including civil engineering, architectural and legal services
• Contract negotiations, including public/private partnerships
• Debt, mezzanine and equity financing
• Creating joint ventures with other developers
While several WRC principals initially focused their professional activities on retail development/ownership, they have expanded their experience and skills during the last three decades to become a full-service real estate practice engaged in retail, residential, office, hospitality, mixed-use, and urban infill developments.
Although many firms limit themselves to a single aspect of real estate development, WRC is able to independently develop and finance many components (retail, residential, hospitality and commercial) of a mixed-use project. This approach results in a single point of responsibility for all aspects of a project and simplifies the process for our clients and our lender/investor network.
