If your next goal is to build a shopping center at a strategic location, the first step is to find the right site where it’s economically, geographically, and environmentally feasible to build a shopping mall.


A shopping mall must have on-site parking, weather protection, ease of traffic to reach your location, and an overall theme of shopping comfort and convenience. For the merchant making a decision whether or not to locate in a shopping center, these “plus” characteristics must be related to the limitations placed upon you as a tenant. In a shopping center, a tenant is part of a merchant team. As such, you must pay your pro-rata share of the budget for the team effort. You must keep store hours, light your windows, and place your signs within established rules.

Sometimes, finding a site for a new retail project takes only a few weeks, and at other times the process may stretch into months. The key challenges faced by builders and developers in finding an ideal location include land acquisition costs. Finding a center with all of the above requirements at the right price takes time.
