Luring millennials with sushi

From the WSJ:

Suburban Offices Woo Millennials With Food, Fitness and Fun

Suburban landlords trying to compete with sleek urban office settings are finding new ways to step up their game.

Property owners in New York’s suburbs are investing heavily to remake bucolic corporate campuses built during the 1980s and 1990s, adding glass facades for natural light-filled offices and retail space for restaurants, cafes and, in at least one case, a supermarket with specialty services.

They also are rolling out features such as modern fitness centers, bike-share programs, walking trails and spacious lobbies as spaces to socialize.

“It’s all about landlords trying to attract tenants, and tenants trying to attract millennial recruitment,” said Daniel Loughlin, broker lead of real-estate services firm JLL’s New Jersey office.

The suburban office market has lagged behind the New York City office market during this expansion, as preferences shifted to urban settings with restaurants, shops, nightlife and mass transportation, brokers and executives said.

But the suburbs continue to have a larger share of the region’s jobs than the city, noted Kenneth McCarthy, principal economist for real-estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield. As of December, 54.6% of the jobs in the New York metropolitan area were in the suburbs, according to his analysis.

As companies consolidate offices and look to take less space, landlords and investors are betting that overhauled, amenity-laden suburban office properties will attract large tenants already in the suburbs.

Simply being near a hip urban setting isn’t enough, said Michael J. DeMarco, president of real estate investment trust Mack-Cali Realty Corp. The Mack-Cali Business Center in Parsippany, N.J., has two hotels and a restaurant and is near downtown Morristown. Wegmans Food Markets Inc., a supermarket chain known for specialty services, is set to open a location on the edge of the office park this year.

Mack-Cali, which owns about 1.9 million square feet of space in the park, is planning to bring in a 70,000-square-foot fitness club, another hotel and four or five restaurants nearby.

“Food has become an incredibly big thing for millennials,” Mr. DeMarco said. “When you were younger, you’d go out and get a sandwich. Now you get sushi.”

    Republicans take control of Washington,
    and immediately charge taxpayers at least $14 billion for a concrete wall.
    Good voting everyone.

    Since you simultaneously mock Trump (re: “Puzzy”) and lovingly quote @jonfavs (aka, Democratic speech writer Jon Favreau), the folks here should have a gander at what Jon Favreau does in his spare time to relax.

    F*&k you, you f*&king hypocrite.

    Given the level of skill, planning, and consultation with experts on the refugee ban,

    how well do you think infrastructure push will go?

    “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” – Paul Krugman, Election Night 2016. The DJIA is + 1,761 pts (just shy of 10%) in the two months since the [ahem] Nobel Laureate economist and resident scholar at the august CUNY institute of 13th grade education brought forth his prognostication.

    BTW, how did Obama and the democrats do mopping up the “jayvee squad” in Iraq after GWB 43 handed them the victory?

  5. Ottoman says:

    If Wegmans had its way, they would have built 10 years ago in East Hanover. It’s not like Mack Cali had some brainstorm to lure them to their office park as part of some grand design. It just happens to be in the general area where they wanted to be anyway and there aren’t many places where a 130,000 grocery store can fit or would be allowed in southern Morris County. Plus they have route 287 frontage.

  6. Ottoman says:

    By victory, you mean illegally bombing and destroying a sovereign nation and committing countless war crimes and atrocities? And then expecting people to play nice?

    BTW, so funny to watch Trump hide behind Obama’s decisions on foreign policy with this immigration ban. Wasn’t he saying for 8 years how Obama was a disaster in the Middle East? I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning. Of course his supporters lack the brain function to understand this.

  7. Anon E. Moose, proud owner of Silk City Bourbon ver 2.36/114 says:

    I’d love to have a Garbage Plate Truck concession at the grand opening. Unfortunately I suspect that’s not the “branding” “aesthetic” that Wegman’s corporate is going for (think Whole Foods rip off with pricing to match). Hell, if they wanted truly authentic they’d get Danny Wegman (current CEO, grandson of the founder) down here in one of the exotic sports cars that he routinely would get stopped by police racing around Rochester in. Bonus points if he brought one of his arm candy girlfriends.

    I think the markets are long due for a correction. This market has been so pumped up with monetary policy that it’s bound to deflate. I can’t wait for people to scream to high heaven about who’s fault it is when it is likely inevitable.

    2) Iran – Drones Flyovers and Persian Gulf US Navy patrols

    3) Syria- Bombing campaigns weekly. On 19 January Obama sent US airstrikes delivered by Boeing B-52 Stratofortress to strike the former Syrian Army base in Aleppo .

    4) Libya – Obama sent B-2 bombers to drop 108 precision-guided bombs on Jan 19th to attach ISIS Camps.

    5) Somalia – 200 to 300 American Special Operations troops as reported by NY Times engaged in shadow war.

    Sudan -Another 200 US troops sent by Obama are pre-positioned in nearby Djibouti for ongoing Special Ops missions.

    Yemen – Jan 29th -A member of U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six was killed and three others were wounded in a raid against a group of senior Al Qaeda leaders in central Yemen.

    Krugman, constantly proven wrong. But still a hero to the stupid. I guess this makes sense.

    Even Obama, who worked fervently to end torture killed according to his own administration’s official numbers, 2,436 people in 473 counterterrorism strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Libya between January 2009 and the end of 2015. Boy that list looks awfully familiar. But let’s let them all in. There wouldn’t be any terrorists in hiding among them right? Especially not among the 400 or so innocent civilians who were caught in the crossfire.

    Donald Trump’s corporate tax repatriation plan
    By “legal corporate tax shelters” I mean the practice by which U.S. corporations are choosing not to repatriate profits earned in overseas markets because they would pay an exceptionally high tax rate on that income if they did. The U.S. corporate income tax rate of 35% trails only the United Arab Emirates and Chad. Because U.S. corporate income tax rates are so high relative to other developed countries, U.S. corporations now have nearly $2.5 trillion in profits stashed in overseas markets, based on a new report from Capital Economics. Comparatively, this figure has doubled since 2008, and it’s up more than six-fold since 2002 when income stashed overseas accounted for less than $400 billion.

  39. Comrade Nom Deplume, Who doesn't care when you got your bottle. says:

    I can understand why CNN and my liberal friends were not commenting on the Quebec shooting until now. Apparently, one of the original suspects named was a Muslim. Also, they used rifles banned in the United States, and the shooter apparently reloaded twice. None of those facts are reportable under liberal dogma.

    However, the Quebec authorities have since clarified and reported that the Muslim they arrested is actually a witness ( I guess you arrest witnesses in Canada).

    Already, BBC has revised its reporting and included references to Trump in its report. So far, US outlets have not done that however once the identity of the shooter is published here, expect the news outlets to mention Trump prominently in their reporting on the Quebec shooting.

    Quebec does have a pretty significant nationalist identity population and IMHO, Quebeckers are far more xenophobic than other Canadians. I would not be surprised if this guy turned out to be another Dylan Root type character

  40. Comrade Nom Deplume, Who doesn't care when you got your bottle. says:

    I should clarify that BBC was not including references to Trump and it’s earlier reporting. That only happened after Quebec authorities clarified that the Muslim arrested was a witness, not a suspect.

    Yome,

    I am old enough to remember the Iran crisis under Carter. He not only blocked Iranians from coming to the United States, he ordered deportations of Iranians who were already here under visas.

    It was not a blanket deportation; only Iranians with certain visas or with certain status were deported. But they were deportations, not refusals to allow entry. And the courts let that action stand.

    There was a guy living in my dormitory named Behrooz. He was as characteristically American as you could get and he lived in absolute terror that he would be deported back to Iran. He figured he would be a dead man if that happened.
    He also never strayed very far from campus because he was worried that he be a dead man if locals found out he was Iranian.

If ACLU loses, it illuminates the fact that DOJ was packed with Obamunists. And I can name names of those who got in and those who were so extreme that even the dems wouldn’t fight for them.
