Mixed use schemes reshape retail models - White paper

Major mixed use schemes and rejuvenated malls are typically turning to leisure, F&B, commercial and even residential to create a complete offer. In our latest special report, MAPIC looked at some of the projects under development, opening or reopening to see how these trends are manifesting in COVID-19 times.

Few retail projects are developed or asset managed without extensive mixing of uses in the modern age and those uses are becoming ever-more diverse. While the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted project construction and closed most malls completely for anywhere between weeks and months during lockdown, the industry has been reopening and rescheduling as restrictions eased.


In our short report, MAPIC looks at a few of the global developments and refurbishments where leisure and F&B are playing major roles in the retail mix and how major schemes are planning to reinvent themselves for new consumer needs and preferences.
