In the long run, there will not be as many shops in the city center as before. How will this look like in the future? Today there are different types of usage. The properties in the city centre offer a variety of uses from retail, office space, health and residential. In addition, there are also offers for entertainment. The combination of different life aspects leads to a meaningful use of the square metres. And this is attracting the customers in the city centres.
I think that the municipalities have not yet recognised this necessity. That means it has to happen at the private sector level, that is already happening today. The inner city has been declared dead so many times and has always found itself anew. But it must be possible to allow other types of use.
