We buy, manage and develop well-located retail properties in established, wealthy markets, and work in partnership with our tenants to maximise the centres' value and attraction.
Shopping centres depend on a number of factors for their success, the most important being one that cannot be changed: location. Eurocommercial’s in-house research and economics team investigates every acquisition with great care. The accessibility and visibility of the site is assessed, followed by a thorough investigation of the wealth and buying preferences of the catchment population.
We work hard to ensure that our centres are fresh and modern through regular refurbishments and extensions that are designed to increase footfall and add further value to the property. This commitment to maintaining high-quality and well-managed shopping centres means that our properties consistently attract the best retailers for the catchment, resulting in high occupancy levels and good turnover growth.
We take great efforts to understand our customers and ensure that our centres are visited time and again. We understand and have acquired a deep knowledge of the habits, preferences and needs across each of the catchments that we operate in. Our insights are founded not just on demographic studies but include detailed surveys, focus groups and behaviour analysis. We combine proprietorial research with data from independent and governmental, local and national research groups, alongside analysis of social media channels.
Our leasing and management teams are in constant dialogue with the major international and local retail groups, monitoring emerging trends and often providing advice to new market entrants. By working together we are able to create successful shopping centres and better experiences for our customers.
