A member of Reurbanist was responsible for the market research, analysis, and report creation of a retail market analysis that aided Sime Darby Property (SDP) in determining the best retail development strategy for their retail mall component.

Components of the market analysis included:

  • site SWOT analysis
  • country-level retail and economic overview
  • retail supply and demand analysis
  • brand void/gaps analysis
  • benchmark case study review

The analysis also required aiding the project architect, Gensler, by providing retail development and placemaking directions for the project's conceptual layout plan.
