While economic development corpora- tions (EDCs) and authorities (EDAs) used to primarily focus on the development of business and industry to create jobs for their communities, many realized that they also needed amenities for residents if they were going to provide truly well rounded communities where people want to live. The balance of generating jobs and creat- ing a great place to live is the true challenge of economic development. We began to see a true shift toward eco- nomic development agencies focusing on retail, restaurants and entertainment in the late 1990s, especially in the West. With smaller suburbs growing their employment bases, many began to look to the retail in- dustry — and shopping center developers — to build amenity-laden properties for their residents. Municipalities often had programs that abated taxes and provided other incentives to spur new development and attract retailers and restaurants. The reward for the community, of course, is watching the area grow and be success- ful so that economic development itself becomes a background activity — the area becomes the place where every business wants to be. This month, we take a look at what a number of communities of different sizes are doing to foster retail growth in their communities, as well as why they deem retail, restaurants and entertainment a necessary part of their communities. We also feature advertorials from a number of EDCs to show you which communities are actively seeking new development and expansion. Our special section begins on page 34. Shipping containers have become a pop- ular and innovative way to add retail to flex- ible environments. As we have covered this trend, we've heard that shipping container retail isn't as easy as it may seem. There are a number of considerations and precau- tions one has to take when developing with shipping containers, but the "cool" factor at a time when differentiation in retail is key can reap rewards with traffic. In our home- town of Atlanta, we've seen shipping con- tainers turned into bars, coffee shops and restaurants, and a shipping container retail village is planned next to one of our mass transit stations. We asked Dustin Watson of Baltimore-based InPlace Design, who has experience designing retail and restau- rant venues from shipping containers, to dispel some of the myths regarding using containers for construction. His article is on page 50. We are pleased to announce the 9th an- nual InterFace Net Lease conference, to be held October 3 at the New York City Bar Association in Midtown Manhattan. This conference has become a powerhouse in the industry, and the cocktail party the night before has been a who's who of the net lease industry for many years.
