For much of the last century, industrial developers scouting new warehouse locations had a fairly simple guideline: Follow the flow of goods. In coastal ports, railyards and air traffic hubs, warehouses went up wherever products came in.
Today, many Americans expect goods on a compressed timeline. As they work to be closer to consumers, industrial developers must follow hiring booms and income growth just as they once followed shipping containers and cardboard boxes. Fortunately, to learn how to follow people, industrial developers can simply look at retail developers.
“Retail developers have always been keyed into where people are moving, where they’re flying, where they’re retiring,” said Joshua Harris, academic director at the Schack Institute for Real Estate at New York University. “The demographic composition and income characteristics of cities are going to become more and more important for industrial developers.”…

- INSIDER taste-tested five hot dog brands: Hebrew National, Nathan`s, Sabrett, Boar`s Head, and Oscar Mayer.
- Nathan`s, Sabrett, and Boar`s Head all had their issues, but they are still viable options for a summer barbecue.
- We felt that the Oscar Mayer hot dogs had a sour taste, and most participants could not finish the entire frankfurter.
- In this taste test, the Hebrew National hot dog comes out on top.

- GUM is the most iconic department store in Russia.
- It opened in the heart of Red Square in Moscow in 1893 and today includes luxury shops such as Louis Vuitton and Prada, as well as a beloved 1950s-style shop selling gourmet food items, wine, chocolate, and classic Soviet products.
- On a recent trip to Moscow, I visited the 126-year-old shopping center, and it had a different vibe from US department stores.
GUM`s distinctive architecture and design, touches like an ice-cream bike and a throwback Soviet-era grocery store, and the abundance of live plants set the space apart from most US shopping centers.

Speaking at the MIPIM Proptech Europe event earlier this month, Microsoft real estate portfolio director Xavier Perrin said he uses a “building utilization dashboard” which allows him to monitor how different teams in the company use space in different buildings, including peak usage times.
“I’ve found I have seats I don’t need,” he said, according to Property Week. “This has allowed us to have constructive discussions about how much space we really need,” and in some cases led to reductions in space of as much as 30%. This has meant significant financial savings, and it could mean Microsoft can make further consolidations that save it tens of millions of dollars, Property Week said…
- Toys R Us is opening two permanent stores in November — at Simon Property Group’s Galleria mall in Houston and at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield’s Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus, New Jersey.
- The stores are product of a joint venture between software retailer b8ta and Tru Kids, the company that is helping to manage the brand names left in the wake of Toys R Us’ liquidation last year.
- The partnership with b8ta gives Tru Kids a negotiating tool as it tries to woo back brands that felt burned by the Toys R Us bankruptcy to sell in its stores.
This holiday season, some shoppers will once again be able to shop in a Toys R Us store.

Back in 2009, a 94-year-old property management company was looking for technology to help it better manage its properties. There was nothing. A recent article in the New York Times describes how one of the largest property management companies in New York became one of the leaders in proptech: It had to invent its own solution to get an edge in the industry. Rudin founded Nantum, software that lets property management companies run their buildings through a smartphone. Pretty cool if you’re in property management, right?
A senior VP at the company explained why to the Times, “We had a lot of technology in our buildings, but no interoperability between the various systems. We wanted those various silos to be able to communicate with each other and share data.”…

Virginia edged out Texas as the nation`s top state for business in CNBC`s 2019 annual report.
Though CNBC said “it is hard to imagine a conversation on state competitiveness that does not include the Lone Star State,” the drop in ranking highlights that economic headwinds are starting to give other U.S. states an edge over Texas when relocating corporations come calling.
- Investing in real estate takes time, patience, and most importantly, cash.
- You probably shouldn`t invest in real estate until you have an emergency fund, no debt, and are saving automatically in a retirement account.
- If you have enough cash to buy a multi-unit property, living in one unit and renting out the others can be a great way to start generating passive income.
- If you don`t have cash to buy a property, try investing in a real estate investment trust (REIT). You`ll get exposure to the real estate market and get paid in the form of dividends.
Real estate can be a very lucrative investment, but it requires a huge time commitment, patience, and most importantly, cash…

Designers are adding kinetic elements to office spaces to provide more flexibility and accommodate greater collaboration.
In recent years, new office designs have encouraged employees to get moving. Cafes and lounges beckon workers when they need a break. Open staircases spur them to climb floors rather than take the elevator. Sit-stand desks offer them a chance to stretch while continuing to work.
Now, the offices themselves are on the move.
M Moser Associates, a design firm in New York, calls its office “a living lab.” Green walls of plants are set on casters and can be used to block off one end of the 6,000-square-foot open space for private meetings, or they can be pushed against other walls to make room for large gatherings. And custom birch-topped work tables have wheels on back legs so they can be tipped and easily rolled elsewhere…
