Development activity in the retail space is projected to increase in 2018 to more than 400,000 sqm gross lettable area (GLA) from the little more than 300,000 sqm of GLA this year, according to Savills’ Quarter 1 Retail times.

However, activity is expected to drop sharply in 2019 and then rise again the following year.

The most significant activity will be in regional centres in 2018, while large format centres will also surge.

The most stock under construction has Queensland leading the states with 274,206 sqm of activity, followed by Western Australia at 206,052 sqm. Victoria and NSW are way behind.
