Recent Management Success
SHOPPING CENTER REJUVENATION
After taking over the West 2 Shopping Center, we worked closely with the owners to make significant upgrades to the 1955 vintage center.
Over a several year period, we installed new lighting, revitalized the rear service area, resurfaced and restriped the parking lot, and designed and installed an affordable surveillance system.
All of these improvements were completed over the first few years and have led to several new tenants with significant increases in income for the owners.
URBAN SHOPPING CENTER FORENSIC ACCOUNTING
Trout Management assumed physical and fiscal management of a 41,000 sq. ft center in Baltimore City, having been notified of the opportunity just days before the new owner took the title.
For reasons still unknown, the seller refused to provide necessary revenue information, and in fact expropriated some of the funds that properly should have gone to the buyer.
Trout Management spent countless hours in forensic accounting in order to reconstruct the necessary records and was instrumental in supporting the buyer’s attorney in an ultimately successful action against the seller.
GROCERY STORE TURNED COLLEGE CAMPUS
The owners of Randallstown Plaza in Northwest Baltimore
County faced a difficult challenge when a major grocery chain decided to pull its smaller stores in the market place.
Left without an anchor, the community–oriented retail center saw an opportunity to create a sub campus for the Community College of Baltimore County.
TD&A worked with local and state government and the college directors to put together a team of architects and contractors to create a LEED Silver certified project that opened on time and on budget.
