In the following podcast interview, Altus Group speaks with Paul Weinschenk, President, Retail for Peterson Companies, about a number of developments that Peterson Companies is pursuing, key retail industry trends in D.C., and the impact of Amazon HQ2 on the region.

While many foresee a softening of the retail market in the D.C. region, the reality is that there may not be a dramatic downturn. With new and expanded waterfront development, Millennials moving into the suburbs, and the positive impact that Amazon HQ2 will have on the region, the future retail landscape will remain bright, despite forecasted economic trends.  With this in mind, Peterson Companies always takes a “place making” expansion strategy to remain on the forefront with developments like the Rio Washingtonian CenterCompass Creek and the National Harbor.
