California regional center focuses on retail
When foreign investors are considering participating in the EB-5 visa program and want to do so through an EB-5 regional center, it is important for them to review the types of projects in which the regional center is involved.
The YK America Regional Center operates in Southern California with a specific eye toward developing retail shopping centers. The regional center believes that major store chains are vital to anchoring these centers.
“Commitments from major retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target, Lowe’s, Costco and so on build the brand credibility of a shopping center development and cause it to increase in value,” the EB-5 regional center’s website said.
These new retail centers may be best way for developers to encourage people to visit brick-and-mortar stores with the rise of internet shopping. The shopping centers have virtually everything a consumer may want to buy, which could motivate them to go out to make their purchases instead of making them on their computer.
Regardless of what specific industry an EB-5 regional center is involved in, it is important for investors to research them to ensure they are investing their money in something they believe in.
