Rappaport Takes RECon 2017


Next week Rappaport will return to the annual International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) RECon show. This three day exhibition at the Las Vegas Convention center attracts nearly 37,000 deal makers including Rappaport’s executives, brokers and leasing agents. In real estate it is always about location– Rappaport’s booth is strategically located at the entryway of the south hall, C-13 South, the hub for discussing retail opportunities in DC, Maryland and Virginia.

On Sunday, May 21 Rappaport CEO and former ICSC Chairman, Gary D. Rappaport, will kick off RECon by advising a class of more than 500 attendees about the skills, passion, and risk tolerance needed to build a successful development company in his session titled Investing in Retail Properties and Structuring Partnerships.

Undoubtedly, the most notable features we’re bringing with us are two of our current, and most spectacular projects: Avec and Skyland Town Center.

Skyland Town Center is an 18.5 acre, mixed use space combining residential living and retail development. This highly anticipated project is currently under construction in an up and coming neighborhood of southeast Washington, DC and will provide much needed services and amenities to the community.

Avec is unique in that it’s the only building Rappaport has built, torn down, and redeveloped. Upon completion, Avec (once a strip mall) will be an eight-story building combining stylish residential units and retail services just North of the U.S. Capitol.

Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with members of our executive, leasing and brokerage teams and learn more about the services we offer at Rappaport. Not only do we manage and lease properties owned by Rappaport, institutions, families and others, but we also represent tenants such as Sephora, Peet’s Coffee, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, Baked Bear, as well as Cinepolis and SolidCore. Most importantly, though, is that no matter the service we provide, we pride ourselves on treating every property as if it were our own.
