Cresa publishes a map of retail schemes in Poland
The Retail Research Department of the Polish office of global tenant-only real estate advisory firm Cresa has prepared a retail map of Poland, comprising 13 main cities (Warsaw, Krakow, Tricity, Łódź, Wrocław, Poznań, Szczecin, Bydgoszcz, Lublin, Białystok, Toruń, Rzeszów and Silesia conurbation) and nearly 450 retail schemes, including shopping centers, retail parks, outlet centers, standalone warehouses and other retail properties. To enable quick navigation across all the markets, the prime shopping centers in each city have been marked distinctly.
“Our map is a basic tool in spatial analyses that shows retail market fundamentals in addition to locations of retail schemes. It presents key local market data, including primary demographics and the current purchasing power index,” said Magdalena Sadal, Head of Retail Research & Advisory at Cresa Poland.
The map presents an overview of the Polish retail market. It also contains strategically critical data on schemes undergoing refurbishment and planned locations of new motorways or expressways. With the map prepared by the Polish office of Cresa, tenants considering specific options are able to better evaluate each location’s potential.
“With this map in hand, we plan a journey with a client before we hit the road. At this stage we can already assess and reject some schemes with a detached eye due to their location, and make a short list of first choices. Having done that, we can take time to visit and pick the best retail schemes where to expand or launch a brand in Poland,” said Szymon Łukasik, Head of the Retail Department at Cresa Poland.
