About the Blog
This blog is about retail properties from Altadena to Claremont.
Most of my blog will emphasize the ever changing nature of the retailers in the Foothill Retail Corridor. Here I will chronicle the plans for construction of new properties, planning commission decisions, retailers that are going away or opening, and other things that would be of interest to tenants and owners in the areas I cover.
But what gives a community part of its character and charm is often the small, independent retailers. You know the types; they may consist of one location or a handful. These are the ones I am going to highlight in the other part of my blog, “Local Focus.” These are the places that I have patronized, in some cases for many years. Others are recent finds. I am also going to discuss other things that are of interest to me in this area I have called home since I was born, the things that make the foothill communities so unique, some of which will have nothing to do with commercial real estate (car shows, the best burritos, that kind of thing).
This blog is not about macro economic conditions affecting commercial real estate. There are plenty of other sources covering that topic.
