Prague, 15th September 2016 – With effect from September, Cushman & Wakefield is taking over the management of the Forum Liberec shopping centre including the letting of its retail space, which totals 47,000 sq m. Forum Liberec is the fourteenth shopping centre under Cushman & Wakefield’s management. A local team led by the Centre Manager, Tomáš Pešava, will be in charge of managing the centre. The team resides directly on the premises and closely cooperates with their colleagues in the Prague office.
“In management, we focus on developing marketing activities and an attractive tenant mix. Thanks to this, the footfall and the merchants’ turnover have been increasing in the centres we manage. Hence, we can expect these indicators to grow in Forum Liberec as well,” says Ondřej Fukal, Head of Asset Services Team at Cushman & Wakefield. “Cushman & Wakefield’s goal is to solidify Forum Liberec’s position in relation to its current competitors as Liberec is one of the cities with the highest supply of retail space per capita,” Mr Fukal adds.
Forum Liberec opened in 2009. It changed ownership this year; the former owner sold it to Rockcastle for EUR 80 million. Cushman & Wakefield participated in the deal, representing the seller. With 12 million visitors per year, Forum Liberec benefits from its excellent position in the city centre.
