From Goodman Real Estate Services Group LLC comes this sales pitch (be sure to check out the data below the maps on its webpage):
Clevelandâ€™s Steelyard Commons is a new 950,000 square foot regional power center serving an untapped trade area with no competition. â€œCity [of Cleveland] residents in 2000 spent about $1.3 billion in retail purchases at suburban stores, according to a recent study form Oster Research Group of Iowaâ€¦â€ (Crainâ€™s Cleveland Business, March 15, 2004).
Clevelandâ€™s Steelyard Commons has direct access to all of Clevelandâ€™s major highways and is situated in the middle of an enormous residential and daytime population. This development will create a new regional trade area in a previously underserved and impenetrable market.
No competition? Underserved? Impenetrable market?
Shakespeare got it wrong. Lawyers should not be the first up against the wall when the revolution comes; my vote is for sales and marketing people.
