SkyDave's Achievements


Whistle-Stop (3/14)

    I believe in the heading of the report it states it is representing only 77.9% of the Trade Area. I do not know what the reasoning is for only concentrating on this portion. The Area demographics maybe only for the population within 30 miles of the malls.
  2. I don't think we've been sluggish. Personally, I try to check (peek) in twice a day from work. I lurk during the day and if I post something it is usually at night at home. Fall, winter and spring are the busiest times of the year for me. I think you are doing a fantastic job keeping things going. BTW, our forum is SUPER busy compared to some of the other Florida forums and other UP forums.
  3. Awwwwwwwww....Man! We sure will miss your valued input. You are moving just in time to return to THE SNOW BELT! Time to break out all the cold weather gear and the all weather boots. I used to live in Rome, NY. We had winter from October to Late April nothing but SNOW, SNOW, SNOW. Since being in Florida I haven't looked backed. Anyway, Congratulations and keep on making the big bucks!!!!

    sdarby, Thanks for the prompt responses! What types of infrastructure improvements are you all asking for in the North Monroe Street corridor? With all the road construction going on at 1-10 and North Monroe Street, is Feldman Properties looking at trying to improve access to the interstate? In many communities the malls have direct access to nearby interstate traffic for obvious reasons. What specifically needs to be done to the Tallahassee Mall property to bring it up to date with the rest of your other properties? Lastly, do you have any preliminary renderings of what you want to do in Tallahassee or are there any developments in other communities similar to what you want to do in Tallahassee? (remember the old adage "one picture is worth a thousand words")

    WOW!!! Great News, TJ I wonder if they will go with the popular outdoor town center look like Fallschase and Pinnacle at Cross Creek? I can't wait to see the renderings.

    Tallahassee Metro population is radically different from its Retail Trade Area which includes most of South Georgia and and five other North Florida counties not included in Tallahassee's official metro. The retail trade area is in excess of +500,000. That number is what relocation experts look at when making decisions to relocate, expand, or close locations in our DMA --- Designated Market Area. (term used by Ad agencies and those involved in retail and service industries). 2006 Statistical Digest 3.2 Tallahassee Trade Area According to retail sales data from Sales and Marketing Management Magazine, Leon County accounted for 63.2% of retail sales within the Tallahassee trade in the 2004 Survey, up from 62.8% in 2004. Per capita retail sales in Leon County are high since a large percentage of the population in neighboring counties travel to Leon County for shopping opportunities.

  10. TJ, We all miss you!!! I look forward to hearing from you.
  11. TJ, What about an updated skyline shot from Apalachee Pkwy. I believe that is Tallahassee's most impressive side and offers more density. Maybe you can get on top of the Flordia Bar Building and get a clear view???(hint, hint.)

  14. I don't know if any of you folks subscribe to Tallahassee Magazine, but they have an awesome pic of the Tallahassee Skyline at Night taken from a police helicopter. It is very impressive.
