This is the second report from the ULI Retail and Entertainment Council to look at the role that food and beverage (F&B) and leisure have in supporting shopping centres as they adapt to retail sales moving online. This year, the research extends that topic to consider how the addition of community amenities is also emerging among shopping centre owners.
The report includes a quantitative analysis of a sample of shopping centres before and after additions of nonretail uses. The report also examines current trends in the industry through a survey of ULI members involved in the retail sector and interviews with retail experts.
This new report extends its discussion on the topic of nonretail by looking at the trend for including community amenities in the tenant mix, and also gets some insight into how shopping centre owners are implementing this trend through a series of case studies from around the globe.
