Analysts of Magazan.ru, a specialized Internet resource in the street retail segment, have summed up the results of the year of development of the street trade market: about 20% of retail real estate lease transactions are in street premises.
According to the results of 2011, the volume of supply in the street retail segment amounted to about 1200 premises. At the same time, 21% of the total number of retail space exhibited in the market falls on Leninsky Prospekt, 18% on Tverskaya Street and another 14% on Kutuzovsky Prospekt. The remaining 47% are offers for rent and sale on 56 trade routes in Moscow.
Compared to 2010, the ratio of the areas of the proposed premises has not undergone significant changes: as before, about 30% are premises from 100 to 250 sq m, 13% are from offers from 1000 sq m and more, insignificantly (from 15 to 17%) the number of premises on the market decreased from 500 to 1000 sq. m. At the same time, during 2011, tenants demonstrated a consistently high demand for premises from 250 to 500 sq. m., therefore, at the end of the reporting period, the number of offered premises in this segment decreased by 5%.
Aleksey Mogila, director of retail and regional real estate at Penny Lane Realty, comments: “The largest number of requests for these areas comes from brands of clothing, footwear and accessories, catering establishments, grocery retailers and banks. Due to the lack of high-quality supply in the shopping center, many companies have become active tenants of street retail premises. "
In 2011, the total area of street premises that participated in lease transactions for retail real estate exceeded 8,5 thousand sq. M., Which is 19% of the total volume of contracts concluded in this market segment. Premises in street retail are also in high demand in the purchase and sale segment. Investors are actively considering retail space worth $ 3-5 million. The website malls.ru writes about this.
