Traditional shops have to reinvent themselves facing growing competition from online shopping. Shopping centres are increasingly intended to become places of experience. Commercial properties such as department stores or shopping areas need to be rethought and rehabilitated according to these new uses.

Retailers, developers and investors need advice to achieve their goals. At Drees & Sommer, we provide them with the support of a disciplinary team that knows the challenges of local businesses and offers tailor-made solutions.


Investors, subsidiaries and operators of shopping centres - developers are all familiar with the retail sector. Yet each of them has different approaches. Our products and solutions are there to give retail players the opportunity to make their retail projects a success. The objectives and priorities may be different, but what our products all have in common is that they are cost-effective, sustainable, digital and innovative.
