2013 Will Not Be Marked With Record Completions on Moscow Retail Market

Moscow, 18 December 2013 – Jones Lang LaSalle presents the revised Moscow retail market completions forecast for 2013. According to preliminary countdown completions figure will not exceed the level of 200,000 sq m (18% less than in 2012).

In Q1-Q3 2013 Moscow market expanded with 142,000 of new quality premises, almost twice the level of Q1-Q3 2012. Taking account of high pipeline of Q4 2013, a record in previous three years (250,000 sq m) was anticipated.

Tatyana Kluchinskaya, National Director, Head of Retail Department, Jones Lang LaSalle, Russia & CIS, notes: “It is already clear that several announced projects will enter the market only in 2014. Several projects will be carried over to 2014 to compliment a number of large projects that have already been announced for 2014. Therefore we anticipate the completions figure to exceed the level of 600,000 sq m in 2014. If all the announced projects are completed on time, 2014 will set a record for new premises coming to the market. Previously the record level was registered in 2009 when the retail market added 500,000 sq m.”
