On May 7th, Julie Lanteigne discussed mixed-use projects as a panelist at Strategic Days on Commercial Leasing organized by Open Forum. A variety of industry stakeholders attended the event, which focused on emerging trends in leases.
While mixed-use projects can be very advantageous for occupants and owners alike, they also lead to their fair share of sacrifices and compromises. Indeed, involved parties have opposing interests, from operational to financial issues, and the rights of each party are shaped by the rights of the others.
The panel’s objective was to identify divergent issues, shed light on negotiation zones particular to this type of project and to examine specific lease clauses paramount to a fair negotiation between all parties.
