Russia is Europe's second largest retail property market

In the first half of the 2014 of the year, 53 new shopping centers were built in Europe, of which 12 in Russia, and 49 should open before the end of the 2015 of the year.

“Russia is the largest European market in terms of retail turnover, but until recently, demand exceeded supply. The intensification of the development of shopping centers since 2010 has led to a large volume of new construction, which is now being commissioned, ”said Maxim Karbasnikoff, head of the retail real estate department at Cushman & Wakefield Russia.

According to experts, if all the declared shopping centers are open, Russia will overtake France as the largest retail real estate market in Europe. One example is Aviapark, the largest shopping center in Europe, which will open in 2014.

According to Karbasnikoff, external political instability, the depreciation of the ruble and stagnation in consumer demand in Russia are currently putting pressure on retailers. “Nevertheless, macroeconomic indicators remain positive in the medium term, and we expect the vacancy rate and rental rates to stabilize in the next six months,” he added.
