Luxury Retailers Take Real Estate into Their Own Hands

February 7, 2024
In a bold shift, luxury retailers like Prada and Gucci's parent company, Kering, are investing heavily in iconic properties along Fifth Avenue, choosing to buy buildings outright instead of facing soaring rental rates. This trend, mirroring actions in Europe's prime shopping districts, signifies a strategic move to cement their presence in prestigious locations. We also see Adam Neumann seeking to bid on WeWork, and U.S. home sales rise. 

Let's dive in.
