Complex anti-crisis solutions for retail real estate. Experience of colleagues from Ukraine


During the period of quarantine measures, many processes in the economy
just stopped. However, the experience of China and the opinion of the
majority of experts concentrate on the fact that there would be no
fundamental shifts in the real estate markets, and after a short-term shock,
the situation will begin to stabilize steadily.

as it experiences the downtime of retail space. However, after the end of
quarantine, prolonged isolation encourages society to communicate more,
as well as to strive to visit public places. By that time, unrealized demand

more economical and picky, which may affect the turnover and traffic of
shopping centers. Retailers are forced to revise development plans and

introduction of modern shopping malls and growth of consumer
expectations. Most likely, up-to-date properties would not experience
fundamental changes in traffic and occupancy after the quarantine, but
most retail projects will have to fight to restore pre-crisis indicators.

for the consumer. This is the only way to achieve or maintain occupancy
and maintain the commercial viability of the project.
