Director / Resolution Managers - Sunshine Plaza
Mike Crittenden of Colliers International was exclusively appointed to handle the leasing of Sunshine Plaza, Victoria in November, 2012.
The shopping centre had suffered from a prolonged period of underperformance and lease stagnation. Numerous contributing factors including existing tenant performance, base building layout, centre position within the catchment and customer demographic created significant leasing challenges. Previous leasing initiatives by others had not been able to overcome the difficulties.
Mike understood the challenges prior to taking on the appointment. He also took onboard our goals, budget constraints and new lease deal parameters in structuring and targeting leasing initiatives and negotiating with tenant prospects. Throughout the leasing campaign Mike was always enthusiastic and very professional in his approach keeping us fully informed of progress via formal and informal communications.
Initial attempts to generate new tenant activity were arduous but Mikes positive attitude, perseverance and determination paid dividends. These efforts culminated in specialty occupancy increasing to more than 90% (30% increase). Along the way he also introduced and negotiated on our behalf with, a number national major and mini major tenants.
Mike was an integral part of the team charged with improving asset performance. His results exceeded our expectations and we are very happy to recommend him to anyone looking to improve the lease profile of their retail assets.

Executive Director, Asset Management - Sunshine Plaza
Mike has been instrumental in the leasing of Sunshine Plaza from its rebirth in 2012 to its eventual disposition in 2015. There was approximately 2,500 sqm of leasing done to bring the occupancy up to over 90% at disposition, in a challenging leasing environment for suburban B grade shopping centres. We greatly valued his hard work, responsiveness, and dedication to the centre, to go along with his knowledge of the Melbourne market.

Mike has a professional approach during dealings with leasing and has been getting consistent results for some time now. His determination to make both clients happy allows it to be no surprise when positive feedback is given.
