(Re)Constructing the Retail Sector

It has been a long time since the words “growth” and “retail” have been used in the same sentence in construction circles. In fact, for more than five years, commercial construction has either risen (or fallen) due to the indirect challenges of weak consumer spending, as well as changes in where, when, how and on what consumers spend their hard-earned dollars. 

Now, the numbers are showing that retail construction is enjoying a renaissance as consumers loosen the purse strings and regain confidence in the economy. And while department store closings remain the Achilles’ heel for malls, according to JLL, a financial and professional services firm that specializes in commercial real estate services and investment management, there appears to be ample demand for the new use of that space.

Blending the Old With the New

For those that take on the onerous and challenging work of renovating and restoring historic buildings, it is more than just a job. It’s a labor of love. At the heart of this movement is an upsurge in the desire to move near downtown areas to be close to work and home, particularly among today’s younger generation. The result is that historical buildings—brick and granite, and all the charm to match—are in high demand. This bodes well for construction companies that garner much of their revenue from preserving buildings that are a testament to the nation’s past.
