As consumers’ expectations and needs change so does the thinking on how real estate can be utilized to provide a great customer experience.


It’s no secret that, over the past many years, mixed use developments have emerged as, often, “pedestrian-friendly developments” that blend two (or more!) residential, retail, office, commercial, cultural, institutional, and/or industrial uses.

“While mixed-use developments often create fun and engaging experiences,” explains NRTA Executive Director Lisa Krizek, they often “create new challenges for the companies that occupy space within them.”

Join this intermediate panel discussion at NRTA’s 2023 National Conference. Witness the metamorphosis of partnership and collaboration.

Caleb Smith is facilitating this panel of real estate experts! Caleb is the Sr. Director of New Store Development and Enterprise Real Estate for Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC.

Here’s the twist, though…each panelist will have a unique point of view. 

Whether informed by their legal career or experience gained within a portfolio management / lease administration department for a large user of space — this panel will share their insights on occupying space in a mixed-use development.

Make sure to register today for Conference 2023. And register for the Mixed-Use Developments – Panel Discussion taking place 9 AM – 10 AM on Sept. 19, 2023.
