When the client approached us, part of the planning work had already been carried out, but layout plans were sub-optimal: there were no important anchor functions, leisure or catering facilities, and vertical communications had not been thought out. After analyzing all of the materials and site restrictions, we prepared recommendations for optimization. We also designed a new draft of layouts at the centre, on the basis of which a rental plan was prepared.
Key recommendations included:
- expanding the complex by the addition of an underground level with a supermarket;
- a well-placed cinema and food court;
- optimization of the tenant mix (selection of tenant types and their relative location).
After completing the first conceptual stage, the team began work on brokerage (leasing of all rental premises at the future complex).
