Retail site establishment is one of the most important success criteria for most chains. We participate as a discussion partner and advisor in the development and preparation of your site establishment strategies and expansion plans. This is an important tool for the further work of finding suitable and well-placed locations.
Our services include the entire search process, itemisation of key information as the basis for subsequent decisions, as well as the negotiation, approval and signing of leases. We also assist our clients in the renegotiation of existing portfolios, the extension of leases, termination of leases and relocation.
We represent several national and international retail chains in chain development and retail site establishment on a nationwide basis.
Site establishment in the right location is the be-all and end-all for individual actors as well as chains in the food and beverage industry. As a discussion partner and advisor, we provide insight and understanding of what is important in the establishment phase. We ensure that you and the project are up to date regarding, among other things, locations relative to your target group, technical infrastructure in the premises and industry-related laws and regulations.
We represent and assist you throughout the negotiation process until signing a negotiated lease agreement. In addition, we can provide assistance in connection with the renegotiation of existing leases, the extension of leases, etc.
The key to a shopping centre's success often lies in understanding the local area's requirements for infrastructure as well as the various types of trade concepts and activities. Our experts have this knowledge. We assist our clients in the development and rental of new and existing commercial properties. Among other things, this means the review and analysis of the optimal floorage allocation and tenant mix.
Our services comprise the entire project and rental process, cost and income budgets, design and the final negotiation of leases up to signing. We can also offer total business solutions, or we can tailor a package that is relevant for your property.
