Weingarten Realty offers convenient short-term/temporary leasing for start-up businesses and seasonal retailers looking to foster new business. Short-term deals are available in proven locations with freestanding buildings, in-line vacant spaces, parking lots and common areas. Our goal for temporary leasing and the tenants is to transition as many temporary leases into successful long-term deals.
A short-term success story in Florida proves the viability of temporary leasing transforming into a profitable long-term tenant. When a recent transplant from New York came across a vacant space in a Weingarten shopping center, her dream of opening a fashion boutique was peaked. Unfamiliar with the area and being a first-time business owner, she pursued a temporary lease. We were able to offer the tenant a gross lease deal on a month-to-month basis giving her an opportunity to open the boutique. Two successful years later and with an opposing long-term lease signed on the space, the owner decided to relocate within the center and signed a three year deal giving her the security of the location and favorable longstanding terms. The owner was able to make her dream of opening a fashion boutique a reality with an initial temporary lease option.
Weingarten Realty offers simple and quick, temporary-rental terms. Often, we are able to get an agreement out to the tenant within 24 hours; timing which is highly conducive to short-term tenants. The short-term leases have several variations, from a weekend event to a month-to-month deal with a 1-30 day out for both the landlord and the tenant. Weingarten Realty’s national portfolio offers centers with high visibility, great traffic counts, frequent visiting customers due to an ideal merchant mix and opportunities for short-term leasing.
