FORT WORTH, TEXAS, (January 26, 2016) — EQA Landmark Communities, a development company, has partnered with Buxton to support the retail development efforts at its Newbury Market site in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Buxton’s advanced consumer analytics will identify new retail concepts that are a strong fit for the site.
While retail economic development programs have traditionally relied on basic demographic information, EQA Landmark Communities will utilize consumer insights that go beyond demographics, presenting a convincing case to retailers seeking growth opportunities. Buxton’s proprietary web-based real estate platform SCOUT® will give company leaders the ability to analyze retail matches and development scenarios.
“We look forward to using Buxton’s insights to help us continue to bring in new retail concepts to Newbury Market,” said Brett A. Malky, President of EQA Landmark Communities. “Utilizing Buxton’s expertise in consumer analytics will help maximize the impact of our investments.”
EQA Landmark Communities wants to replace the traditional real estate mantra, “location, location, location” with “data, data, data” to demonstrate to future business partners why a region and a project in particular will bring them greater business success.
“Buxton is pleased to partner with EQA Landmark Communities,” said Dennis Maher, director of sales in Buxton’s public sector division. “We are confident that we can help EQA recruit and retain the best retail establishments for Newbury Market.”
Buxton has worked with more than 700 cities and community development organizations nationwide to implement retail development strategies. Clients include the Tennessee Valley Authority, Mississippi Power and the Southwest Louisiana Partnership for Economic Development.
