We are confident that our Jameson Commercial real estate team will identify and maximize opportunities to help us grow and we are happy to have retained them for such services.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 21, 2011
Jameson Commercial is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with Buffalo, New York-based New Era Cap Company which has retained Jameson Commercial to handle the real estate responsibilities in their national rollout of 40+ stores over the next four years. Will Crowden will be the point person on the account and work with Katie Whelan on the project. “I am truly looking forward to assisting New Era with their national rollout. They have an amazing brand and company culture that we are excited to add value to and help grow,” said Will Crowden, Senior Associate with Jameson Commercial. New Era Cap Company is equally enthusiastic about the partnership with Jameson, and Director of Global Retail Operations Cal Lawson said, “It is essential that we work only with the best brokers on this rollout as we are aggressively expanding our business throughout the country over the next few years.” Lawson added, “We are confident that our Jameson Commercial real estate team will identify and maximize opportunities to help us grow and we are happy to have retained them for such services.”
The recently signed deal in Chicago is located at 201 South State Street, in the State Street shopping corridor. The addition of New Era Cap’s Flagship store to the property will fill the 4,000+ sq. ft. vacant space and completely transform its presentation to the street. “We were able to work with the ownership group to change some of the key physical characteristics of the property,” said Crowden, “they were a great group to work with and understood our needs, and had the ability to deliver something that will electrify that block of State Street.” Ownership was represented by Matt Gould and Paul Bryant of Oak Brook based Mid-America Real Estate. “Structuring a deal that not only benefited both sides economically, but also gave New Era Cap Company the Chicago presence they were targeting, was something that was extremely important to both Will and I. In the end we truly feel that was accomplished, and are excited about New Era Cap Company’s future for their Flagship Store on State Street,” added Matt Gould, of Mid-America Real Estate.
New Era is actively seeking new locations in several major metropolitan markets including Las Vegas, Miami, San Francisco, Vancouver BC, San Diego, Seattle, Portland, and New Orleans amongst others. They seek to open a mix of Flagship, Company, and Outlet stores in the coming four years. Real estate sites and inquiries should be directed to Will Crowden at Jameson Commercial, wcrowden(at)jameson(dot)com.
