With more than 30 years of shopping center sales and leasing experience, Allen Ginsborg is one of the Rocky Mountain region’s leading experts on the retail operations that are the backbone of America’s consumer economy.
Ginsborg has completed more than 1,000 shopping center leases with a total value in excess of $1 billion, some 50 shopping center sales and more than 100 land transactions. The division of NewMark Merrill that he co-founded in 2007 owns or operates two million square feet of property along Colorado’s Front Range.
Prior to joining NewMark Merrill Companies, Ginsborg was owner of Pacific Retail Partners, a leading California retail landlord and tenant representation firm that he co-founded with Joe Meyer in 1993. Under his leadership, the company developed or leased more than 15 million feet of shopping center space in California and Colorado. From 1993 to 2003, he represented The Home Depot in its Colorado expansion, assisting the company with the establishment of more than 30 new locations. He also ran the national retail development group for Catellus Development, the largest private landowner in California. In 2006, he leased and co-developed a 500,000-square-foot, Target-anchored power center for McWhinney Enterprises in the Centerrra master-planned community in Loveland.
From 1983 to 1993, Ginsborg worked for CBRE, where he specialized in anchor tenant representation and leasing, and selling major shopping centers ranging in size from 150,000 to 450,000 square feet. He was twice ranked 13th and 35th nationally among 2,700 CBRE brokers. He ranked among the top 10 retail specialists nationally at CBRE three times, including the No.1 ranking in 1989.
Ginsborg is a frequent speaker at the Everitt Real Estate Center at Colorado State University, where he currently serves on the board. In 2012, Allen was selected CSU’s Real Estate Entrepreneur of the Year. Ginsborg also holds board positions with the I Have A Dream Foundation of Boulder County and the Long’s Peak Boy Scouts of America Council, where he serves as board president.
