Colliers summarized retail property market in 2014

The main trends of last year were the record entry of new retail facilities, the revision of commercial conditions in most metropolitan malls and an increase in the level of vacant premises, according to an analytical report of the Moscow retail real estate market in 2014, compiled by Colliers International.

The structure and volume of demand for retail premises have undergone significant changes under the influence of the unstable economic situation in the country, a decrease in retail trade and a decline in consumer purchasing activity. Tenants gave preference to existing facilities with a good location and high traffic, which affected the occupancy rate of new shopping complexes. In addition, the share of lease agreements, where the rate is indicated in US dollars, has significantly decreased in favor of “ruble” contracts, the study notes.

In 2014, many retailers adjusted their development plans. About 10 international retailers decided to leave the Russian market.

Most of the new brands are represented by fashion segment operators (59%): Monki, Lefties, Forever 21, Isabel Garcia, Suitsupply, Deichmann, etc.

At the end of 2014, 16 professional shopping centers were commissioned in Moscow with a total rentable area of ​​761 square meters. m, and the total supply (GLA) of retail property in the capital reached 880 million square meters. m

In 2015, 26 professional shopping centers are announced to open in Moscow, including facilities that were not commissioned in 2014: Mari, Columbus, Central Children's Store on Lubyanka and Kuntsevo Plaza. Also, in 2015, it is planned to launch several super-regional facilities, including the RIO shopping and entertainment center on Kievskoe highway, Riviera and Zelenopark.
