Global Research Reports
Main Streets Across the World 2010
Main Streets Across the World provides a global barometer of the retail sector, tracking rents in the world’s top 269 shopping locations across 59 countries. The league table is drawn up by taking the most expensive location in each of the countries monitored.
Most of the world’s top retail locations have remained resilient during the last twelve months, with Latin Americaand Asia-Pacific showing the most positive rental growth, according to our latest retail research. Around two-thirds (66%) of the 59 countries surveyed by the real estate adviser for its annual Main Streets Across the World report reported prime rents either rising or remaining static over the year to June. The findings paint a brighter outlook to those of 2009, which revealed the biggest global fall in rents in the report’s 25 year history.
