The acceleration of change in the way space is utilized makes mixed-use environments increasingly relevant.

While Hart has historically invested across property types, we currently see significant opportunities in the retail and mixed-use space. Today’s retail investing is about creating an optimal tenant mix that drives customer visitation, maximizes dwell time and creates an overall sense of community. This is accomplished through the repositioning of underutilized retail assets to include today’s successful retail tenants and complementary mixed-use components. Our strategy is designed to meet the needs of today’s consumers and their current lifestyles.

With a key focus on re-tenanting and remerchandising strategies, as well as introducing densification through alternative uses such as multi-family and medical office, synergies are created between a wide variety of consumer offerings. We leverage our cornerstones of vertical integration, experience and technology to de-risk each investment by reducing the number of unknowns in our decision making process. Our vertical integration, with 21 offices from Manhattan to Miami providing property management, leasing, tenant representation and data analytics, provides the underlying data for sound investment and operational decisions.
