In 2019, costs at the Central Region were up 1.3percent y-o-y, when compared with a 0.6% rise in 2018.
Together with the retail marketplace stabilising, investor attention has returned into the retail industry, says Colliers Research. This past year, complete retail investment earnings reach $4.1 billion, a 204 percent y-o-y jump and also the highest in a decade, driven by investor attention and M&A.
“The market remains conducive to bargains [at 2020] granted a favourable rate of interest outlook and enhanced demand-supply dynamics at the retail property market,” notes .
Optimism over seasonal earnings events like the Black Friday sale and also the Singles’ Day sale (even though to a lesser extent, as deals from the latter are largely online) in 4Q2019 also increased merchant opinion, notes Angelia Phua, JLL consulting manager for consultancy & research.
New-to-market retailers, manufacturer growth
New-to-market retailers and manufacturer growth from several trade forms dominated the scene from 4Q2019, particularly those from the F&B industry, observes JLL’s Phua. They comprised F&B retailers Move Noodle House, Nam Dae Mun and Five Men; Korean skin care merchant Civasan; luxury bed retailer Savoir Beds; also as activity-based merchant, NERF Action Xperience.
Brands which enlarged their footprint at the retail arena comprised F&B operators Flor Patisserie and Haidilao Smart Restaurant; home furnishing shop, HOOGA; and shoe retailer, GEOX, notes Phua.
Even though the growth momentum of the previous two quarters of 2019 is very likely to spill over into 2020, JLL’s Phua anticipates the rate of expansion to be”small”, given the slow global and national economic growth prognosis.
Tight source in 2020-2024
As the marketplace continues to digest the significant source completions in 2019 such as Funan, Paya Lebar Quarter Restaurant, along with Jewel Changi Airport, new supply is expected to facilitate significantly and keep tight in 2020. New distribution is predicted to remain in the 0.3percent to 0.4% range from 2020 to 2024, versus the 10-year historic average of 1.4percent of total inventory.
“The new distribution is chiefly concentrated in suburban and suburban areas, in which there’s a well-defined inhabitants catchment,” states Colliers’ Song. “This will help support occupancies from the retail marketplace moving forward.”
Landlords are expected to keep”reinventing” retail, together with additional expansion of flexible workspace into retail stores in 2020, adds Song.
