City Spotlight: Urban Retail and Leisure

by Mark Faithfull

The urbanisation of populations across the world has been a defining factor of recent decades, with the trend even more pronounced in Asian markets such as China and India. This White Paper considers how the retail industry is beginning to adapt to the real estate demands this is creating and considers how cities and regions are promoting themselves, especially as attractive locations for younger generations.

While the hard metrics of the economy and employment will continue to play an important role in this, the growing emphasis among the young on softer aspects of living, such as the quality of leisure amenities, connectivity both within and beyond the city and art and culture is reshaping this landscape.

Our White Paper also looks at some of the key developments across Europe, which are aiming to capitalise and even influence these trends, creating major new areas that will bring together retail, work, leisure and living as new villages emerge within existing cities.

Read about the latest data, developments and innovations from companies including Altarea, Apsys, Battersea Power Station, Dogus, Eastgate, ECE, Essec, Grand Nancy, Nuveen Real Estate, Portland and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield.
