    Construction of Bronx Point affordable housing project to start next year – Construction Review - November 5, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    The New York City Economic Development Corporation is set to commence construction of the Bronx Point affordable housing project on the edge of the Harlem River. The project will be constructed on a vacant piece of land along the river owned by the city of New York.

    The project will include 542 affordable housing units, community and retail spaces, a new public park, and a museum dedicated to the history of hip-hop. The project is being developed by the New York City Economic Development Corporation in partnership with several city agencies whose main agenda is to address the lack of affordable housing and jobs in the low-income and rent-burdened areas of the South Bronx.

    As opposed to typical mixed-use projects that are developed at market rates, Bronx Point affordable housing project was designed to specifically address the needs of the neighborhood including the inclusion of additional cultural and community amenities.

    Thanks to its ambitious plan, the project recently won the Annual Awards for Excellence in Design from the Public Design Commission which is tasked with reviewing designs of projects in the city.

    The project will include a U-shaped cluster of building towers on the edge of the river with community, retail, and museum spaces at the base. The mixed-use project was especially necessary given the fact that the city is trying to meet the high demand for affordable housing. In addition, the project ensures some equity in the distribution of job opportunities.

    One thing that sets this project apart is just the scale of it. Were able to achieve so many of these benefits because the project is so large, said Douglas Land, real estate transaction senior associate at the New York City Economic Development Corporation.

    The more than half a million square feet project will 50,000 square feet for the first permanent home of the Universal Hip Hop Museum and 10,000 square feet of retail space. The new museum will be dedicated to highlighting the story of the local creation of hip-hop.

    With construction underway, the Co-op looks ahead to serving growing customer base – Argus Leader - November 5, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    The Sioux Falls Food Co-op is about to get bigger as the grocer embarks on its multi-phased expansion plans.

    Construction has already begun in the tenant space next to the Co-op's current location in the retail center at410 W. 18th St., just off of Minnesota Avenue.

    Leadership for the grocery store wrapped up their capital campaign just last month after months of planning and years of anticipating a need for more room, general manager Patrick Sayler said.

    "In the co-opworld it's not as simple as in regular retail world," Sayler said. "There are so many more stakeholders involved."

    The Co-op was issued building permits this week for the project, a four-phase timeline expected to culminate in the spring. Early work won't be as disruptive to the store's operations because the walls are up between the two spaces, which will eventually become one single, larger space.

    Crews have already finished demolition on the other side and will be able to finish most of the work before the walls come down, including building out a deli area nearly four times the size of the current section.

    "It's quite an undertaking," Sayler said.

    By the time the spaces are combined and the remodeling work is finished, each section of the Co-op will have more space. The largest expansions -- after the deli -- will occur in the meat department and frozen department.

    The growth will also help the Co-op better meet the food needs of the growing number of aspiring home-based chefs, who are using quarantine during the coronavirus pandemicto branch out in their cooking, Sayler said.

    "It seems like folks are really getting out of their comfort zone and trying out new and different things," he said.

    Expanding the Co-op has been something the store's organizers have been planning since Sayler started in 2016.

    "Pretty quickly after moving tothe space we're currently in, we realized we we're going to outgrow the space," he said.

    Summary Financial Results

    For the three months ended September 30, 2020:

    For the nine months ended September 30, 2020:

    COVID-19 Business Update

    As of October 30, 2020:

    We continue to benefit from the breadth of our asset base including the diversity of our tenant roster and our geographic diversity. Our tenants are now 95% open, with rent collections in the third quarter of 96%, including 86% collected in cash and 10% addressed per signed deferral agreements. We made strong progress on monetizing assets with proceeds of $113.6 million generated from transactions in the third quarter. Year to date, we have monetized assets totaling $284 million, of which $166.7 million were income producing assets sold at an average cap rate of 5.9%. Since inception, we have reduced the portfolio to a more focused group of 195 assets from 266 assets and raised approximately $985 million in proceeds from asset monetization activity, allowing us to focus our human and capital resources on our top redevelopment opportunities, said Benjamin Schall, President and Chief Executive Officer.

    Mr. Schall continued, We continue to be prudent with respect to development capital expenditures, with a prioritization on continuing projects where we can generate near-term income from stronger national tenants. We are also advancing master planning, entitlement and site infrastructure on our multi-family portfolio, having partnered with well-established apartment developers on over 5,500 apartment units. These partners share our view on the significant value creation opportunities to convert our land parcels into differentiated residential communities, with an emphasis on walkability, services, amenities and greenspace. These priorities are consistent with our efforts to work through this period of disruption and uncertainty while preserving the value of our platform and portfolio over the medium and long term.

    Portfolio Update (as of September 30, 2020)

    Premier and Larger Scale

    Includes 34 assets totaling 6.5 million square feet (5.7 million at share) of existing retail space that the Company believes can be expanded and densified by integrating retail, residential, office and other uses. Allowing for the risk and extended timeframes inherent in the entitlement process, the Company believes that the density on these sites could ultimately evolve to include a total of 6,500 to 7,500 residential units and over 5.0 million square feet of mixed-use commercial space.

    Suburban Retail

    Includes 136 assets totaling 21.2 million square feet (19.5 million at share) of existing space that the Company has redeveloped, or believes can be redeveloped, into first-class, multi-tenant retail centers or repurposed for alternate, non-retail uses.

    Smaller Market

    Includes 25 assets totaling 2.8 million square feet of existing space that the Company will continue to market for sale, subject to achieving appropriate value relative to any potential redevelopment opportunities.

    Operating Results

    Transactions

    During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company monetized six properties and nine outparcels totaling 1.4 million square feet and generated $113.6 million of gross proceeds, including one new joint venture and one sale-leaseback transaction.

    Total monetization activity for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 consisted of 19 properties and 12 outparcels totaling 3.1 million square feet and $272.5 million of gross proceeds.

    Since it began its capital recycling program in July 2017, the Company has raised over $985 million of gross cash proceeds from the sale or joint venture of interests in 86 properties, plus outparcels at several properties.

    Leasing

    During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company signed new leases totaling 51,000 square feet at an average base rent of $17.71 PSF. On a same-space basis, new rents averaged 4.2x prior rents for space formerly occupied by Sears or Kmart, increasing to $20.91 PSF for new tenants compared to $4.93 PSF paid by Sears or Kmart across 19,000 square feet.

    BALANCE SHEET AND CAPITAL MARKETS ACTIVITYThe Company engaged in multiple transactions to enhance balance sheet strength and financial flexibility during the quarter. As previously announced, the Company, in underwritten public offerings, issued an additional $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of its 4.00% senior unsecured notes due 2025 in a reopening on July 21, 2020 and $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of its 4.75% senior unsecured notes due 2030 in a new issuance on August 25, 2020.

    The Company redeployed the vast majority of the related net proceeds from these public issuances to repay the principal of existing indebtedness as follows:

    Following these activities, the Company holds no debt maturities until 2022, a fully undrawn $850.0 million unsecured revolving line of credit and approximately $877.1 million in total available liquidity as of September 30, 2020, up $149.8 million from $727.3 million as of June 30, 2020.

    In total, the Company had $1.8 billion of gross consolidated indebtedness with a weighted average contractual interest rate of 4.17% and a weighted average maturity of 6.1 years as of September 30, 2020, up 2.0 years from 4.1 years as of June 30, 2020. The Company continues to benefit from substantial headroom relative to its debt covenants, including a debt service coverage ratio of 3.7x, well in excess of the 1.5x requirement under its debt agreements.

    DIVIDENDAs previously announced on September 8, 2020, the Company's board of directors declared a third quarter dividend for its outstanding Class A common stock of $0.05 per common share. The Company's board of directors had previously suspended the dividend to preserve and enhance liquidity and capital positioning. The dividend of $0.05 per common share was paid on October 9, 2020, to Class A common stockholders of record on September 25, 2020.

    The Company's board of directors will continue to monitor financial performance and declare additional dividend payments to at least cover the Company's minimum taxable distribution requirements, aiming to grow this initial quarterly dividend amount over time as conditions further normalize. Year to date, including dividends paid in January 2020, April 2020, and October 2020, the Company has paid $81.6 million in aggregate dividends.

    INVESTMENT ACTIVITYExpansions and RedevelopmentsThe Company continues to make progress on the execution of its active expansion and redevelopment projects.

Although the Company believes that its plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects as reflected in or suggested by those forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company can give no assurance that such plans, intentions, expectations or strategies will be attained or achieved. Furthermore, these forward-looking statements should be considered as subject to the many risks and uncertainties that exist in the Company's operations and business environment.Such risks and uncertainties could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected.These uncertainties include, but are not limited to, economic, business and financial conditions, and changes in the Company's industry and changes in the real estate markets in particular, economic and other developments in markets where the Company has a high concentration of properties, the Company's business strategy, the Company's projected operating results, rental rates and/or vacancy rates, frequency and magnitude of defaults on, early terminations of or non-renewal of leases by tenants, bankruptcy, insolvency or general downturn in the business of a major tenant or a significant number of smaller tenants, adverse impact of e-commerce developments and shifting consumer retail behavior on tenants, interest rates or operating costs, the discontinuation of London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR), real estate and zoning laws and changes in real property tax rates, real estate valuations, the Company's leverage, the Company's ability to generate sufficient cash flows to service outstanding indebtedness and make distributions to shareholders, changes in the dividend policy for the Company's Class A common stock and its ability to resume the payment of dividends at past levels, the Company's ability to obtain necessary outside financing, the availability, terms and deployment of capital, general volatility of the capital and credit markets and the market price of the Company's Class A common stock, risks generally associated with real estate acquisitions and dispositions, including the Company's ability to identify and pursue acquisition and disposition opportunities, risks generally associated with redevelopment, including the impact of construction delays and cost overruns and related impact on the Company's estimated investments in such redevelopment, the Company's ability to lease redeveloped space, the Company's ability to identify and pursue redevelopment opportunities and the risk that it takes longer than expected for development assets to stabilize or that the Company does not achieve its estimated returns on such investments, the Company's ability to enter into new leases or renew leases on favorable terms, pandemics or other public health crises, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, and the related impact on (i) the Company's ability to manage its properties, finance its operations and perform necessary administrative and reporting functions and (ii) the ability of the Company's tenants to operate their businesses, generate sales and meet their financial obligations, including the obligation to pay rent and other charges as specified in their leases, the Company's ability to create long-term shareholder value, regulatory changes and other risk factors, including those detailed in the sections of the Company's most recent Forms 10-K and 10-Q filed with the SEC titled "Risk Factors," which you should interpret as heightened as a result of the numerous and ongoing adverse impacts of COVID-19. The extent to which COVID-19 impacts the Company and its tenants will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the scope, severity and duration of the pandemic, the actions taken to contain the pandemic or mitigate its impact, and the direct and indirect economic effects of the pandemic and containment measures, among others. The Company assumes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

    NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURESAs defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), an industry trade group, Funds From Operations (FFO) means net income computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), excluding (i) depreciation and amortization related to real estate, (ii) gains from sales of real estate assets, (iii) gains and losses from change in control and (iv) impairment write-downs of real estate assets and investments in entities directly attributable to decreases in the value of real estate held by the entity. The Company has adopted the NAREIT definition in its computation of FFO attributable to common shareholders. The Company believes that, subject to the following limitations, FFO attributable to common shareholders provides a basis for comparing its performance and operations to those of other real estate investment trusts (REITs). The Company believes that FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, provides an additional and useful means to assess the operating performance of REITs. FFO attributable to common shareholders does not represent an alternative to (i) "Net income" or "Net income attributable to common shareholders" as an indicator of the Company's financial performance, or (ii) "Cash flows from operating activities" in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's capacity to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends.

    The Company also reports Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is defined as FFO attributable to common shareholders excluding the impact of discrete non-operating transactions and other events which the Company does not consider representative of the comparable operating results of its real estate operating portfolio, which is its core business platform. Specific examples of discrete non-operating transactions and other events include, but are not limited to, the impact on earnings from gains or losses associated with the early extinguishment of debt or other liabilities, litigation involving the Company, including gains recognized as a result of settlement and costs to engage outside counsel related to litigation with former tenants, the impact on earnings from executive separation and the excess of redemption value over carrying value of preferred stock redemption, which are not otherwise adjusted in the Company's calculation of FFO attributable to common shareholders. The Company believes that Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure, provides an additional and useful means to assess the operating performance of REITs. Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders does not represent an alternative to (i) "Net income" or "Net income attributable to common shareholders" as an indicator of the Company's financial performance, or (ii) "Cash flows from operating activities" in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's capacity to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends. Comparison of the Company's presentation of Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

    The Company also reports Net Operating Income (NOI), which it defines as all revenues other than (i) straight-line rental income (non-cash), (ii) amortization of lease inducements, (iii) amortization of acquired above and below market lease intangibles and (iv) lease termination fee income, less real estate taxes and all operating expenses other than lease termination fee expense and non-cash ground rent expense, which is comprised of amortization of right-of-use lease assets and amortization of lease liabilities. NOI consists of Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties. Same Store NOI represents NOI from the Company's same store portfolio consisting of 101 retail operating properties acquired or placed in service and stabilized prior to January1, 2019. NOI from Other Investment Properties represents NOI primarily from (i) properties acquired or placed in service during 2019 and 2020, (ii) the multi-family rental units at Plaza del Lago, a redevelopment project that was placed in service during 2019, (iii) Circle East, which is in active redevelopment, (iv) One Loudoun Downtown Pads G & H, which are in active development, (v) Carillon, a redevelopment project where the Company halted plans for vertical construction during the three months ended March 31, 2020 in response to current macroeconomic conditions due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had completed the current scope of site work preparation at the property in anticipation of future vertical development at the site, (vi) The Shoppes at Quarterfield, which is in active redevelopment, (vii) properties that were sold or held for sale during 2019 and 2020, and (viii) the net income from the Company's wholly-owned captive insurance company. The Company believes that NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties, which are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, provide an additional and useful operating perspective not immediately apparent from "Net income" or "Net income attributable to common shareholders" in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these measures to evaluate its performance on a property-by-property basis because they allow management to evaluate the impact that factors such as lease structure, lease rates and tenant base have on the Company's operating results. NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties do not represent alternatives to "Net income" or "Net income attributable to common shareholders" in accordance with GAAP as indicators of the Company's financial performance. Comparison of the Company's presentation of NOI, Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

    Retail Properties of America, Inc. Reports Third Quarter And Year To Date 2020 Results - PRNewswire

    Newark Will Be Getting Its First 250-Unit Urby Development – Jersey Digs - November 5, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    A developer that has been hard at work renovating a high-rise along the border of Downtown and University Heights has announced a partnership that will bring an expanding living concept to Newark.

    Back in April last year, we were the first outlet to break the news about the revitalization of an 18-story tower at 155 Washington Street. The property, first built as a parking garage during the 1920s, was sold by Rutgers University to L+M Development Partners for just over $9 million.

    Newarks planning board approved a final design this July to adaptively reuse the longstanding structure into a 250-unit residential building sporting 6,250-square feet of retail space. The $91 million project, drawn up by Inglese Architecture + Engineering, calls for a new four-story building connected along Washington Street that will be home to institutional space for Rutgers University-Newark.

    L+M Development Partners recently announced a partnership with Dave Barry, formerly of Ironstate Development, to bring the next Urby venture to the property. The communities embrace a design approach that emphasizes common spaces to facilitate interaction between tenants via amenities like coffee shops integrated into the lobbies and communal kitchens.

    The thriving, cultural hub of Newark is a perfect match for Urby as we focus on bringing community and fresh perspectives to retail and residential development, said Barry, CEO of Urby. Newark Urby will celebrate the design history of the city with this renovated tower and connect the building to the energy of Rutgers University and the movement within New Jersey and to NYC via convenient public transit.

    Newarks spin on Urby, expected to be wrap construction in the spring of 2022, will include a rooftop deck, ground floor courtyard, gym, lounge areas and a music room. It will be the brands third outpost in New Jersey following 2017s opening of a 69-story Urby tower in Downtown Jersey City, with the company also operating a 409-unit building in Harrison.

    In terms of the Garden State, a 25-story Urby concept in Jersey Citys Journal Square was approved last year and had been set to break ground before the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Another 466-unit Urby has been pitched for land near Hudson County Community College.

    Urby has two other completed developments on Staten Island and in Stamford, Connecticut. The brand has recently set its sights on expanding throughout the country, as planning is underway to bring their developments to several cities including Dallas, Texas and Washington, D.C.

    Dodson going big with $25M mixed-use development in Colonial Beach – RichmondBizSense - November 5, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    A rendering of the beach-front townhomes and commercial space planned for Colonial Beach. (Courtesy of Dodson Development)

    Two years ago, the town of Colonial Beach decided it wanted to start marketing itself as a tourist destination for Richmonders, Washingtonians and others around the Commonwealth.

    The town, with its seasonal population of about 3,500 split between full- and part-time residents, is geographically positioned to do so, sitting on the Northern Neck and with beachfront land facing the Potomac River.

    Last week, the town announced another step toward drawing in visitors with the help of Richmond developer Duke Dodson.

    His Dodson Development bought 5 acres for $2.7 million, on which it is planning a multi-phase, mixed-use project thatll add townhomes, a hotel, office and retail space adjacent to Colonial Beachs Town Hall at 100 Wilder Ave. and 301 Douglas Ave.

    While the four-phase project wont reach full completion until mid-2024, Dodson, who is president of the firm, said the project came together relatively quickly after he got word of it in mid-March.

    It just got me really excited. I was looking at it for me and my family because we were looking for a river or lake destination. In Richmond, you have a couple of river or lake options but none stands out as obvious, Dodson said.

    Colonial Beach is close to Richmond, D.C. and Fredericksburg, but it has a historic downtown and its a golf cart town. Based on a lot of factors, I feel like the times right for it.

    The projects first phase would add 35 townhomes. (Courtesy of Dodson Development)

    The projects first phase includes building 35 townhomes to start in the mid-$300,000s. The second phase calls for the renovation of three existing commercial spaces in Colonial Beachs downtown. Those will be followed by 36 waterfront condos along with 10,000 square feet of retail space. A boutique hotel will round out the project.

    Dodson said he expects the total project cost to surpass $25 million. He said his family will personally own one of the townhomes and his Dodson Property Management will lease one of the office spaces thats being renovated.

    As for retail, Dodson hopes to bring in what he describes as boardwalk-friendly tenants.

    Well be marketing to places like coffee shops, ice cream shops, he said, noting that one of the commercial spaces being renovated is an old bank building that hes already shown to some breweries.

    Richmond-based Fultz & Singh Architects is the projects architect, and local general contracting firms Vertical Builders and UrbanCore Construction will handle the build for different phases.

    Itll be among Dodsons largest projects to date, and his first outside of Richmond, where hes developed a Gather-anchored project in the Arts District, and the former ARC building in Scotts Addition thats now home to Gelati Celesti, Potbelly Sandwich Shop and High Point Barbershop.

    Ive never developed outside of Richmond because Ive always said I want to develop stuff that I can walk and see, Dodson said. Its pretty exciting. Well spend a lot of time out there in the summers in the coming years. It doesnt feel like a foreign market and Im getting more and more comfortable with it by the day.
