Property Forum 2014

Property Forum 2014 was held in the last few days. It was devoted to commercial real estate. The conference was divided into three main areas: hotels, shopping malls and warehouses. In our own field of interested we took part in the presentations covering the situation of shopping malls on the current Polish market. The main motions are the changes that need to take place due to the falling footfall and changing lifestyles. Another topic is the need to renovate aging malls. In Poland there are over 12 million sq m of selling space. Most are first and second generation malls that require adjustment to current customer needs. Shopping mall managers and designers will face serious challenges in the coming years.
