Jones Lang LaSalle reports that 14.1 million m² of new shopping center space across Europe will be completed during 2014 and 2015 – highlighting continued activity in shopping center development in the region. Russia will have the largest share of shopping center space in Europe by 2015 with 3.8 million m² scheduled for completion over the next two years.
During 2013, 5.6 million m² of new shopping center space was completed in Europe, an increase of 11.2% on 2012. The pipeline for 2014 is expected to reach 7.2 million m², the highest level since 2008 and up 32% on the average level completions of 5.5 million m² between 2009 and 2013. An additional 6.9 million m² of shopping center space is expected to go online in 2015, up 26% on the 5 year average.
Driven by improving economies and rising levels of disposable incomes, the majority of the new schemes continue to be developed in Russia and Turkey. In 2013 almost 50% of newly developed shopping center space in Europe was located in these two countries. Increased development activity across the wider European region will however see the overall European share of new space completed in Turkey and Russia reduce to 34% by 2015.
Russia is anticipated to have the largest shopping center stock in Europe by 2015. In 2013 more than 1.6 million m² of new shopping center space was completed in Russia, up 11% on 2012. Avia Park in Moscow is one of the most exciting developments due to open in 2014 with a total of 225,000 m² of leasable space available – making it the largest shopping center development in the country. For 2014 and 2015, total completion in Russia is expected to reach 2.0 million m² and 1.8 million m² respectively.
Turkey was Europe’s second most active market in 2013 with a total of 1.2 million m² of new shopping center space opening. For 2014 and 2015, total completions are expected to reach 1.9 million m² and 535,000 m² respectively. Zorlu Center was the most notable opening in 2013; the high-end luxury scheme in Istanbul includes over 66,000 m² of retail space. At 150,000 m² Boulevardi Mall in Istanbul is currently the largest scheme under construction in Turkey and is expected to open later this year.
In Western Europe, Germany has the largest shopping center development pipeline over the next two years. In 2014 some 613,000 m² is expected to open. This is expected to increase to 919,000 m² in 2015. This is significantly up on 2013, which saw 295,000 m² of new shopping center space coming onto the market and highlights the increased confidence among developers and investors in this core market.
James Brown Head of EMEA Retail Research and Consulting at Jones Lang LaSalle says; “Growth markets of Russia and Turkey are playing catch up. Favourable market conditions will not necessarily translate into a wave of new retail development across Western Europe in the same way experienced in previous periods of economic recovery. Structural change is still playing out, retail is being redefined, developers will be cautious, as will lenders on new developments.”
Robert Bonwell CEO EMEA retail at Jones Lang LaSalle says;
“Redevelopment is the new development for most established markets, as tired stock loses appeal and deferred capital expenditure comes home to roost. Redevelopment of existing large scale retail assets will become a key part of Asset Management in a retail market that is being redefined through multi-speed economic growth, increasing urbanization and rapid technological change.”

Transport for London (TfL) customers will soon be able to shop at a variety of new and innovative retailers as TfL announced the appointment of Appear Here, the largest online marketplace for short-term retail space, to introduce pop-up shops across its retail estate.
For the first time, retail properties within the London Underground (LU) network will be made available for short-term rentals providing brands, designers, artists and entrepreneurs with easy access to prime retail environments in central London.
This move, part of TfL’s work to make journeys for customers better and more convenient, will broaden the range of shopping outlets on the London Underground network. Over 11 million journeys take place on the TfL network every day and TfL owns over 1,000 retail properties at London Underground, rail and bus stations as well as 1,200 arches under its railways.
Most of these sites are occupied on a long-term basis. However, as leases expire and spaces become available, some spaces will be reserved for pop-up use and Appear Here will market them for temporary occupation to generate revenue to be reinvested back into the transport network.
Around 15 retail units will be used as pop-up shops and will be made available to rent through AppearHere.co.uk across key stations such as Old Street, Piccadilly Circus, St James’s Park, and Baker Street providing exciting retail opportunities for London commuters. The short-term letting will enable retailers looking for temporary sites to showcase their products on TfL’s network.
Mike Brown MVO, Managing Director of London Underground, said: “Millions of people use our stations every day and we are always looking at innovative ways to improve our customers’ experience of using the transport network.
“Pop-up shops are a fantastic way to showcase new products on a temporary basis. As well as ensuring our retail offer is vibrant, we are also excited about giving new business ventures exposure to our huge customer base.”
Graeme Craig, Director of Commercial Development at TfL, said: “We’ve trialed pop-up shops at a few sites on the network, and they’ve proved extremely popular for us, the retailers and our customers. The partnership with Appear Here will enable us to make the most of our retail assets whilst generating revenue we can reinvest into improving the transport network, benefiting all Londoners.”
The agreement with Appear Here will secure income for reinvestment in transport as part of a wider commercial strategy that is currently forecast to generate £3.5 bln over the coming years. It follows the announcement earlier this year to bring ‘click and collect’ services from major retailers to the London Underground network.
Ross Bailey, CEO and Founder of Appear Here, said: “We see this as a great opportunity for innovative brands, ambitious start-ups and hungry entrepreneurs. Appear Here’s purpose is to help people make their ideas travel and with millions of commuters travelling on TfL’s network every day, we recognized there was a real opportunity for savvy retailers and entrepreneurs to reach their target market.
“Old Street Station offers unparalleled opportunities for people to seed ideas and get great exposure amongst the trend setters and forward thinking businesses in the surrounding area, so ultimately making their ideas travel further.”
TfL has already enjoyed success with pop-up shops in a vacant retail unit at Piccadilly Circus. Last year, as part of the 150th Anniversary of London Underground, Nike used the vacant retail unit to sell their special edition trainers.
As part of this new partnership, Appear Here will be working with TfL on opportunities at Old Street Station, reinvigorating the retail environment and creating a retail environment driven by dedicated pop-up shops. Launching at the end of April, eight spaces in Old Street LU station will be available for short-term rent through Appear Here, creating a new retail destination in London.
Used for retail or experiential purposes, the spaces will be curated around themes, concepts or seasons, every three months so that consumers constantly see fresh and exciting ideas on their daily commute.
TfL introduced its first pop-up shop in November 2013 with PAPER London, a fashion retailer, taking over TfL’s retail space on South Molton Street.
Since then, the site has been in constant demand with Appear Here bringing in a variety of up and coming fashion retailers.
