Making Diverse Tenant Mixes Work: An Advanced-Level Workshop on Exclusives, Prohibited Uses, Radius Restrictions and Waivers

Howard Lind, Partner
November 4, 2021 | 8:00 am – 9:15 am PST

As today’s centers welcome uses that were formerly disfavored or even unwelcome, and as the nature of retail operations continues to change (think in-car pickup and pop-up restaurants), barriers imposed by existing exclusive and prohibited-use clauses are increasingly scrutinized and addressed. The need for flexibility requires that future exclusive, prohibited use and radius clauses be crafted in a more tailored manner while affording necessary protection. This advanced workshop will facilitate discussion to address these challenges. The presenters will also deal with drafting clauses that are enforceable and ensure that a party has adequate, yet appropriate, remedies in the event of a violation.

Issues to be discussed, from the landlord, tenant and lender perspectives, include solar project development options (ownership vs. leasing vs. purchasing electricity production), impact on electricity costs, warranties/reps/covenants and other key contract provisions, potential tax benefits and retail lease implications. The discussion promises to be energized, and the goal is to give you information you can convert to power in your negotiations.
