Though conversion often opens new avenues of development, there are special considerations for evaluating a retrofit opportunity and completing the construction. Our presenter discusses pitfalls to avoid, the financial risks involved, and construction issues you can expect to face during the process including fire district, signage, infestation and tax appeals. By way of example, he draws on details and operating performance from four recently completed retrofit projects, including suggestions that would have helped these operators accelerate their lease-up. He talks about pro forma vs. actual results, and what these results might mean for future project projections.
