For over a year now, the corona-virus has dominated the economy as a whole. Needless to say, the outbreak of the pandemic has also had significant impact upon the retail real estate sector.

In the interview, she discusses measures such as click & meet, reports on actions to prevent further vacancies by means of interim leases, for example, for pop-up stores or coronavirus test centres, explains what attractive concepts for placemaking in the “New Normal” must look like and why food-anchored retail is undergoing increasing pressure to revitalize recently.
