GlobeSt.com: What is the state of retail leasing and how has it changed over the past 12 months?
Breslin: Retail leasing in the South East, particularly in markets like Miami and Atlanta which were hit hard by the 2008 recession, are now seeing a strong resurgence. Foreign investments are prevalent in South Beach and Miami, and are moving northward. DC is strong, Philadelphia is coming back and, overall, the Eastern Seaboard is doing well.
