“We believe that AKR’s growth profile is unique in the strip sector as the company’s significant Chicago street retail exposure flies below the radar yet has largely avoided the pitfalls of Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, a market in which the company has zero exposure. On the earnings call, management indicated confidence in delivering medium-term average 4% SS NOI growth by sustaining contractual rent growth and keeping up with strong releasing spreads in key locations in New York, Washington D.C., and Chicago.”,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
