Future CBD vibe
Coming 50 years no repeat!!!!
Who will lead the design – building planning for global master pieces from here on soon?
Where the global city living is going to move to when NZ is eyed on so much?.
With today’s consumers looking to have a range of amenities on their doorstep, retails and residential developments are being built in ever closer proximity.
In the UK, some apartment schemes are now following in the footsteps of US developments and rising up alongside large-scale urban shopping centres.
European malls owner, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield is venturing into rental living, backing a £670 million residential scheme next to its shopping centre in east London. Retail property group Intu — which owns the likes of Manchester’s Trafford Centre as well as malls in Bristol,
Nottingham and Glasgow — last year said it had identified enough land at its six UK centres for 5,000 homes and 600 hotel rooms.
“Boosting the population of the immediate vicinity is certainly a clever footfall driver,” says Skomer Bennett-Clemmow, UK retail research analyst at JLL. “We are seeing more retail investors explore this but for now, it’s being led by established mall operators in top locations.”

‘The retail environment within shopping centres is evolving as the rise of online shopping and a tough trading environment impacts the traditional mix of retailers taking space in malls.
Now, more food and beverage brands and new leisure concepts, from boutique gyms to so-called competitive socialising concepts like ping pong or crazy golf, are moving in. And these provide an attractive array of entertainment options for people living nearby.
For tenants, the appeal of living close to a mall lies in convenience, says Nick Whitten, residential research director at JLL. “They’re living next to a major, community asset offering near round-the-clock entertainment.”
