We recently caught up with Steffan Ippolito from Oxford Agency to discuss the opportunities that retail activation can have on brand new property developments.
Steffan has 16 years experience in the real estate industry primarily focusing on the sale and leasing of commercial and retail investments in the City Fringe, Inner West, Eastern Suburbs and Lower North Shore. He has been involved projects such as the Former Harold park Tramsheds and the Green Square Town Centre Retail Complex. He is widely experienced in not only providing advice on current values, yields and rents, but also in assessing the benefits and drawbacks of various property alternatives towards meeting my clients investment criteria.
Together Dom and Steffan discuss the significance of retail for property development. Steffan highlights the advantages of retail development as it provides a point of difference and competitive advantage.
Some of the interview questions are:
How important is the retail component in a mixed use development?
How does good or bad retail affect prices/success in a development?
How has your work with Precinct 75 and Tram Sheds affected the area?
How do you create spaces with such vibrate energy?
How do go about setting up the precincts such as Green Square or Quay Quarter with a long time line?
