NAI Mid-Michigan/TMN Commercial Negotiates Lease for 75,000 SF Former Younker’s Men’s Store at Meridian Mall

Okemos, MI March 22, 2019 – As more big box stores continue to shutter, repurposing the empty space to fill unmet needs is growing. Jeff Shapiro, Principal with NAI Mid-Michigan/TMN Commercial, recently represented High Caliber Karting and Entertainment in the negotiation of their 75,000 square-foot lease to open a kart track entertainment venue in the former Younker’s Men’s space at Meridian Mall. After negotiating a preliminary lease agreement with mall owner, CBL Properties, Jordan Munster of High Caliber Karting reached out to Shapiro to assist with the negotiations. Shapiro identified the need for immediate lease savings based on the adaptive reuse, lease structure and market drivers, and within two weeks’ time successfully negotiated an acceptable lease agreement between the mall owner and High Caliber Karting. High Caliber Karting and Entertainment plans to open by the end of the summer.
