Stiles Expands Retail Development, Leasing and Brokerage Platform; Announces Promotion of Dan Coyle to SVP

Fort Lauderdale, FL (August 5, 2020) — Stiles, the Fort Lauderdale-based, 69-year-old, commercial real estate development and third-party services firm, announced today that the company's retail brokerage and leasing team will join forces with Stiles Retail Group, further augmenting its long-established retail investment platform. Stiles Retail Group is the company's investment division that is responsible for driving its retail development pipeline across the core markets of the Southeast.

"By combining the forces of our retail investment and brokerage teams, our goal is to significantly grow a retail platform that can offer our clients a full range of services and experience," said Ken Stiles, Stiles Chief Executive Officer. "In addition, we are armed with long-time tenant relationships and a strong market reputation with owners, and therefore see the opportunity to compete exceptionally well in third-party retail leasing and property sales in our current and future core markets."

As part of the expansion, Dan Coyle has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Retail Leasing and Brokerage and named Stiles Broker of Record, working with Ryan Karlin, President of Stiles Retail Group. All retail leasing and brokerage activities for Stiles-owned and third-party retail properties will be led by Coyle and his team.

"I've spent my career aiming to improve asset value for my clients by finding unique, best-in-class retailers that will elevate the mix of offerings at their shopping centers," said Coyle. "Joining forces with Ryan and his team not only enhances our ability to service Stiles-owned properties but allows us access to an entirely new stream of major national and regional retailers for our third-party assets. We believe in the future of retail, especially in the grocery-anchored category, and already have a strong pipeline of developments for the post-COVID era."

The group's new tagline "Building better retail experiences" speaks to its combined focus on development and third-party leasing. The team will focus on Stiles' portfolio of owned retail assets, both existing and under development, as well as growing a true third-party leasing and brokerage platform that will compete throughout the Southeast region.

Led by President Ryan Karlin, Stiles Retail Group's primary focus is the development and redevelopment of grocery-anchored shopping centers, regional power centers and neighborhood retail centers that feature an effective mix of high quality and nationally recognized tenants. The newly combined group has nearly 2 million square feet of retail assignments in its Florida portfolio, which includes more than 600,000 square feet of third-party assignments.

"Integrating brokerage and leasing provides new pathways for growth and allows us to be more efficient in identifying and executing ground-up and redevelopment opportunities," said Karlin. "Dan and his team are highly attuned to the changing retail landscape, including new trends and emerging markets, which further strengthens our ability to make decisions and shift our strategy."

Leveraging Stiles' successful track record of development and strong relationships, the group is positioned to expand in the next several years. In 2020, the group completed Beacon Lakes in Miami, FL, a 430,000-square-foot, large-format shopping center featuring Home Depot, City Furniture, Michaels, Dick's Sporting Goods, and more. Currently, Stiles has the following retail centers underway in Florida:

  • Monarch Town Center, a 150,000-square-foot Publix-anchored shopping center with Ross and Planet Fitness in Miramar

  • Parkway Village at World Commerce Center, a Publix GreenWise-anchored center in Jacksonville

  • Village of Golf Shopping Center, a Publix-anchored retail center in Palm Beach County

  • Publix Greenwise at The Main, downtown Fort Lauderdale


In addition, by way of Stiles' Charlotte office, the company has built a strong retail platform throughout the Carolinas with five grocery-anchored shopping centers completed and two mixed-use centers underway.
