Let's get physical: Why shoppers still love real-world stores
Small Business Trends
It seems that despite the growth of mobile shopping technology, retail customers still like to "get physical" when it comes to shopping — and they aren't planning to stop any time soon. In a new study by TimeTrade Systems, The State of Retail 2015, 87 percent of consumers plan to shop in physical retail stores at least as often this year as they did in 2014. For millennials, the percentage is even higher. Ninety-two percent of them plan to shop in-store this year. That's as often as they did last year, or more often.

Is mold in modern buildings a sign of energy loss?
Sourceable
It is not uncommon to find mold in new buildings, something that one would think should not be the case. This raises the question, are the overall causes of mold unknown? More likely, the causes of mold are well known, and our buildings are not properly designed to avoid it.

Why Apple stores are a sought-after 'big prize' for Canadian landlords
Financial Post
On a sales-per-square-foot basis nobody can beat Apple Inc. stores in Canada, a distinction that makes it one of the most sought-after retailers by landlords, according to a new survey. At the bottom of the list of the top 35 retailers in 2013 is Target Canada, although the now-bankrupt retailer was at a disadvantage because it was only in Canada for part of that year.

Chestnut Hill mall in Boston hopes new exterior adds to high-end experience
The Boston Globe
The boxy concrete exterior of The Mall at Chestnut Hill is a fashion mismatch with the upscale retailers inside. From the outside it has all the charm of a corporate data center. Inside, shoppers walk along marble floors looking for designer handbags at Kate Spade, Michael Kors, and Coach and to buy expensive jewelry at Tiffany & Co. New England’s only Bloomingdale’s, the luxury department store, anchors both ends of the property.

How recycled energy improves indoor air quality
Green Building News
Exceeding code regulations is a strategy many building owners now use to attract and retain tenants. Studies have shown that increased ventilation rates have a positive impact on health by reducing all indoor pollutants to their lowest level.
