Publications: Living retail

Living Retail is dedicated to retail and leisure trends, research, analysis, locations and investment.

Retail has a key role in cities and as investors begin to look more closely again at retail real estate, we cover the markets across Europe and look at Shopping Centres, Outlets, High Street, the transformation to green assets, social impact, new technology and the investment strategies of key global investors.
