LASALLE INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT’s Sustainable Management Program for the European portfolio has set a target of zero direct-to-landfill waste and 80 percent of waste recycled by 2020. To help achieve these goals, LaSalle works closely with property managers to engage tenants and promote recycling.
JAMESTOWN is a design-focused real estate investment and management company that specializes in adaptive reuse, with a mission to transform spaces into innovation hubs and community centers. Jamestown’s Ponce City Market is a result of the transformation of a former Sears, Roebuck & Co. building, originally constructed in 1926, into a mixed-use community hub with office space, retail space, restaurants, and 259 multifamily residential units. The project, which opened in 2015, highlights the impact that building reuse has on a project’s ability to reduce material waste and increase authentic placemaking.
LaSalle Investment Management acquired and started renovations on Shanghai International Plaza (SIP), a mixed-use office and retail property in 2018. Upon completion, LaSalle began an occupant waste diversion initiative with tenant engagement reaching almost all tenants for participation in waste reduction efforts within a four-month period.
Three new buildings, with 7,553 square feet of retail space on 0.41 acres, bracket a small plaza that replaced a vacant lot at the edge of an established retail area north of downtown Oklahoma City. The three restaurants and eight studio/office spaces complement the area’s established arts anchors.
The Newton is an 18,599-square-foot (1,727 sq m) mixed-use retail, dining, office, and events building in Uptown Phoenix, Arizona, housing an independent bookstore with a beer, wine, and coffee bar; a home and garden store; a chef-led restaurant; a small office; and spaces for meetings and events. The Newton hosts hundreds of events each year, whether sponsored by its tenants or booked by the public. It was built within a renovated restaurant/banquet facility whose mid-century modern architecture and old-fashioned cuisine made it a local landmark for 40 years.
Les Docks Village is a new lifestyle and urban retail center, located in the waterfront district of Marseille, that was developed by Constructa Urban Systems for owner JP Morgan Asset Management. The project involved the rehabilitation of the 15,000 square meters on the ground floor of Les Docks, an 80,000-square-meter office building originally built as a warehouse in 1857. The new design for the lower-level Les Docks Village retail area provides light, transparency, nature, and new color around 60 shops and restaurants arranged around four courtyards connected by an interior passageway that runs through this very long building. The upper floors were restored in an earlier renovation, and this ground-level redevelopment opened the building to the public with a festive and convivial atmosphere.
Beaugrenelle is a repositioned multilevel retail center with 49,517 square meters of gross leasable area (GLA) in the heart of Paris. The project involved the redevelopment and repositioning of an existing shopping center, first built in 1979 as part of a larger mixed-use district. Located several blocks from the Eiffel Tower, in the Front de Seine district, the original center was erected on a podium that placed much of the retail above the street level. The new center is a fusion of internal mall and streetfront retail space, and uses a striking new modern design to reconnect the center with the street and the neighborhood.
Located at the intersection of Center and south highland avenues in Pittsburgh’s east Liberty neighborhood, phases I and II of EastSide comprise a 5.1-acre (2.0-ha) development that includes retail, restaurant, and office uses, with surface and deck parking. They include 4,724 square feet (439 m²) of office, 112,835 square feet (10,483 m²) of retail, and 472 parking spaces.
Eastside transforms a patchwork of 14.3 acres (5.8 ha) of distressed properties in the heart of Pittsburgh’s east end. The project borrows economic strength from the more affluent adjacent neighborhoods of Shadyside, Friendship, and Highland Park to fuel the redevelopment of East Liberty, a commercial center plagued by decades of decline. Eastside phases I and II are complete, tenanted, and operating. Eastside V opened in July 2011 as a two-level Target store. Eastside III and IV are in planning.
The 1.5 million square- foot (139,355-m²) Westfield San Francisco Center, one of the nation’s largest urban shopping malls, comprises more than 170 specialty stores; two anchor department stores, Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom; four floors of Class A office space; a gourmet marketplace; and a nine-screen cinema. The $460 million expansion project restores the 1890s-era emporium building to its original grandeur and re-creates what a century ago was San Francisco’s premier retail street.
More than 95 percent leased and occupied, Westfield San Francisco Center has generated $17.5 million in property and sales taxes for the city, created approximately 3,000 new jobs, and drawn more than 25 million visitors per year to the previously underused Market Street area. Among the 172 retailers, almost 47 percent are new to San Francisco, and preexisting San Francisco Shopping Center tenants are reporting a 10 to 15 percent increase in sales since the reopening. After an eight-year development process, Westfield San Francisco Center has become an economic engine for downtown San Francisco, creating connections with nearby Union Square, the city’s established shopping district, and Yerba Buena, a cultural and entertainment area.
