Macerich Embraces Space Planning Capabilities with Yardi Floorplan Manager


Leading retail and mixed-use owner-operator partners with Yardi® to optimize space management platform

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., March 28, 2024 — Macerich, one of the nation’s leading owners, operators and developers of one-of-a-kind retail and mixed-use properties, is an early adopter of Yardi® Floorplan Manager and is excitedly collaborating with Yardi® to enhance the solution that is poised to change the game for floor plan visualization.

Macerich uses Yardi Floorplan Manager to create and edit floor and stacking plans with real-time lease metrics and instant area calculations to promote quicker turnaround. The flexibility to see a higher level of space detail for both public-facing sites and internal planning is an advantage for Macerich. The ability to view maps historically is another favorite feature.

“We love the customizable maps with myriad pre-configured metrics. As a visual reporting tool, the solution lets us look at tenant sales and rents and other categories that we can colorize on the map. Floorplan Manager makes it easy to review vacancies and decide what would work best in those spaces,” said Steve Schmid, assistant vice president, information technology at Macerich. “Yardi is building more features for us, including a symbol library to add details like carts and kiosks in common areas.”

“Yardi values our collaborative relationship with Macerich. We look forward to further increasing the capabilities of Yardi Floorplan Manager to help owners and operators follow Macerich’s lead to visualize and manage their spaces like never before possible,” said Kevin Yardi, vice president for global solutions at Yardi.
