Proactively take advantage of opportunities to upgrade both mall shop and anchor retailers through value-added redevelopment and ongoing re-tenanting;

Maintain and enhance the strength and flexibility of the company’s balance sheet including growing the quality and size of the unencumbered asset pool and further improving key financial metrics.
