Report | United States Retail Investment Outlook - Q3 2016
Despite geopolitical and financial market concerns that impacted the first half of 2016, investors are adjusting to the post-Brexit economy, and, in turn, volumes are beginning to normalize in the second half of the year. As a result, retail volumes decreased slightly quarter-over-quarter by 1.1 percent with the scale of full-year declines moderating. Regional and super-regional mall investment is on trend, with increased volumes this quarter due in large part to Trophy transactions in primary and secondary markets and other large portfolio acquisitions, such as the $200.0 million Pacific Retail purchase of three malls from Simon Property Group. In the largest single-asset transaction of the quarter, Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas was purchased by TIAA from GGP for $1.25 billion. With the exception of the first quarter of 2015, mall investment sale volumes are at their highest level since 2013.
