Urbis has helped clients develop, expand and improve the performance of shopping centres for more than 30 years.

Because of our experience and multidisciplinary know-how, we are where the industry turns for guidance – for research, analysis, advice and development strategies.

Urbis’ work with the retail sector draws on our expertise across the board – from planning and design to community consultation and economics – but all our work is underpinned by our research capability. We know the sector and its drivers better than anyone. We track the changing market forces and consumer trends and we understand the demographics and the global trends.

We advise some of the biggest and highest profile retail centres in the country – from Macquarie Centre to Chadstone – but we work right across the sector, on retail centres of all kinds. We have directors with retail expertise in our offices nationwide and we advise on retail projects across Australia and in Asia and the Middle East.

Our expertise is reflected in our annual publication Urbis Shopping Centre Benchmarks – the industry’s bible since 1992 – which provides a comprehensive set of indicators and benchmarks covering the composition, performance and occupancy rates of Australian shopping centres.

We help our clients improve the shopping experience and respond to rapidly changing shopper demands. We help them prepare for – and shape – the future of Australian shopping.
