RETAIL SUMMIT PART DEUX
Proof that retailers want to be in New York: nearly 400 attendeesjoined us for last week's Bisnow NY Retail Summit to learn where the sizzling market’s headed from some of the top names in the industry. Thursday, we brought you the event; today we bring you the audience.

Among the attendees: CBRE’s Gary Trock, Breslin Realty’s Russel Helbling, Robert K Futterman & Associates’ David Abrams, and CBRE’s Anthony Buono. Gary says it was great to see the tremendous turnout. It shows the retail world is active again: “Lots ofgood vibes in the room with both brokers and owners.” We wonder what Anthony was thinking with that light bulb over his head.

Various REIT M&A activity is keeping Shearman & Sterling’sMalcolm Montgomery (second from right, with Madison Marquette’sTyson Pitzer, Bohler Engineering’s Kevin Haney, and Madison Marquette’s Anselm Fusco) on his toes because his firm has the money and wherewithal to spend it, he says. Meanwhile, private companies are still cleaning up their balance sheets.

Cole Schotz’s Joe Koshar, Whitestone Associates’ Paul Rotondi, and Bohler Engineering’s Stephen Tomicki all joined us from New Jersey where Stephen reports that developers are out kicking tiresand revisiting older projects differently (eg. instead of having one anchor tenant, splitting a project for two anchor tenants). It’s certainly keeping the architects, engineers, and lawyers busy, he says. Despite the downturn, Bohler was able to open its 13th officein Florida.
