The surrounding area ranks among the wealthiest regions in the state.

Market Overview

The Chicago metropolitan retail market is the third-largest retail real estate market in the United States and contains approximately 141.5 million square feet of retail space (excluding enclosed regional shopping centers). According to a Q1 2015 Chicago Retail report by Los-Angeles based CB Richard Ellis, consumer confidence continued to rise in the Chicago retail market and the local retail vacancy rate leveled off. Vacancy in the Chicago area was 9.6 percent in Q1 2015, up from 9.5 percent in the last three months of 2014 but well below the 10.4 percent of Q1 2014.

Due to strengthening grocery-driven trends, shopping center development will continue to hover around 2 million square feet per year according to Mid-America Real Estate Corporation (Chicagoland 2015 Shopping Center Report). While there was a 6% increase in shopping center development from 2.26 million square feet in 2013 to 2.40 million square feet in 2014, the 2015 Report anticipates a 14% decrease with approximately 2.06 million square feet planned for the coming year. While new development has grown significantly since 2011, new development between 2.00 and 2.50 million square feet per year appears to be the growing trend in Chicagoland.

As in previous years, grocery-anchored projects continue to drive development activity in this region. Twelve of the 15 developed centers in 2014 were grocery-anchored, while 9 of the 11 planned centers in 2015 are set to be grocery-anchored.

The majority of new development also continues to be focused in the Chicago suburbs, as the continued market recovery fuels new development to meet retailer growth requirements. Nine of the 15 centers developed in 2014 were in the suburbs, and nine of the expected 11 centers developed in 2015 will also be in the Chicago suburbs.

Major tenants expanding within the Chicago MSA in the last 12 months include: Wal-Mart and Target supercenters, and fitness users LA Fitness, Xsport and Planet Fitness. The TJ Maxx companies, Ross, Nordstrom Rack, Michaels, The Sports Authority, Binny’s Beverage Depot, Burlington Coat Factory, Ulta, Pier 1, Petco and Pet Supplies Plus all continue to expand with focus on the urban trade areas and continued in-fill in well-established suburban trade regions. The restaurant category is more active than ever for both full-service and QSR concepts all competing for limited outlot opportunities in markets with established residential bases and strong daytime densities.

While no new traditional malls have opened in recent years in the Chicago area, many of the existing regional malls are in various stages of planning and/or implementation of redevelopment. Several malls have added a “lifestyle” component to enhance the existing tenant mix with high-end restaurants, bookstores, entertainment venues and soft goods retailers. Randhurst Mall was the latest to undergo this transformation in 2012. The revitalization entailed a complete redevelopment to include lifestyle center components along with an entertainment component of theater and restaurants. Such redevelopments of traditional regional malls are driven by today’s convenience-oriented consumer.

According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), consumer optimism is currently at its highest level since 2004 as Americans exhibit more optimism about current and future conditions. While concerns surfaced toward the end of 2014, consumer spending remained strong throughout the last quarter of 2014. Investment activity in the national retail real estate sector was also up 20 percent year-over-year in (according to Real Capital Analytics), which also anticipates additional increases in retail real estate income. 

Competitive Analysis

Randhurst Village is strategically situated at a high-traffic intersection along the Rand Road corridor within the Mount Prospect sub-regional retail trade area. The property’s competitive trade area primarily consists of power centers and community shopping centers with national anchor tenants, stand-alone big box retailers and several smaller convenience centers. The overall primary competitive set totals approximately 2.1 million square feet and currently has an overall occupancy rate of 92%.

Primary Competition

Primary competitors to Randhurst Village are anchored community shopping centers located along Rand Road. Mount Prospect Plaza, located at the northeast corner of Rand and Central Road, is currently 86% occupied, includes over 300,000 of GLA and features LA Fitness, Marshalls, Ross Dress for Less, Petco, and Walgreens. Randhurst Commons, located at the southwest corner of Rand Road and Kensington Road, contains an Office Max and Fresh Thyme with one available box space that formerly housed LA Fitness.

Primary competition continues about a mile south of the subject property with a Wal-Mart Supercenter. Redeveloped in 2011, this property draws significant traffic to the Rand Road and Central Road intersection. To the north of Wal-Mart is a freestanding Brunswick Zone bowling alley, followed by a freestanding Menard’s (160,000 square feet). The recent decision of Wal-Mart and Menard’s to expand their stores in these locations emphasize the large consumer demand in this trade area.

I want to confirm the the institutional partner equity is preferred over the Acquire equity. In the final sale or refinance, the institutional equity is returned first, then the Acquire equity is second?
