From individual shops and specialist stores to shopping centers, carefully planned and executed retail projects add value to city centers. Sustainable shopping centers - as so-called Green Buildings - are becoming increasingly attractive. Ensuring the profitability of shopping centers requires experts who know the numerous challenges faced by the industry. Multichannel concepts are needed to combat price dumping in online trade.
Retail space that is part of these strategies must be suitably attractive. This applies to features including the architectural design of shopping centers, signage, and parking. Another issue of concern to an ever-greater number of retailers is the additional cost associated with renting space: operating costs, heating and utilities. It is therefore becoming increasingly important to develop solutions to reduce these costs.
Operators, developers, investors and retailers will need professional support appropriate to the project goal. Drees & Sommer consultants, site managers and controllers have the necessary expertise and experience from over 500 successfully completed projects in the retail sector.
