Webinar: Houston Retail Outlook — How is the Houston Market Responding to the Pandemic?



The Houston Retail Outlook— How is the Houston Market Responding to the Pandemic? webinar, hosted by Shopping Center Business and Texas Real Estate Business, covers the impacts of COVID-19 and how retail experts are bringing creativity to challenging situations.

Houston boasts a dynamic retail and restaurant scene that has been a requisite landing spot for new shopping, dining and entertainment users over the last few years. With a plethora of new mixed-use destinations in development or coming on line, can the market continue to absorb the new retail space despite pandemic-related restrictions and reduced occupancies?

See a list of some topics covered below:

  • What initiatives have retail landlords and operators taken to mitigate the disruption brought on by COVID-19?
  • What is the outlook in terms of leasing for the Houston market over the next six months?
  • What kinds of retail deals are capital sources targeting right now, and what is the Houston market seeing in terms of deal velocity and volume?
  • How will broader expectations for the Houston economy impact the performance of the retail market in the coming months?
