(Apologies in advance for any typos, it’s difficult to get good help on a Sunday. Also, I use voice to text dictation so just sound out anything that really doesn’t make sense in a strong rural accent and that should help!)

“Retailers are failing, but retail isn’t failing”

This week on ‘Property Matters’ on iPropertyRadio, Executive Chair of Bannon Group Neil Bannon chats to host Carol Tallon about the false narrative that all shops are doomed, which was disproven post pandemic. He also talks about the great reshuffle in the office market, new opportunities in commercial space repurposing, and the need for significant occupiers to be in green buildings.

Also, confronting CRE’s biggest challenges with technology: Proptech and the future of CRE (hint: data, data, data!).
