Development Support

Getting it right from the start – the Freeport process starts with a business plan that gathers key data on catchments, customers, local retail and brand strategies. It evaluates the commercial strategies, the investor targets and develops the optimal positioning for the proposed outlet. Potential size and phasing are all considered. It is our guide to action, maximising long term profit and ensuring all team members understand the goal.

The latest Freeport centres to open are The Village, Villefontaine ( France ), opened May 2018 and Acienda Outlet, The Philippines in November 2018. Next out of the blocks will be Downtown Grantham Designer Outlet on the A1 in the UK in 2021 and Prime Outlet Cairo. Post CV 19, the development of retail space will become even more challenging. However we believe there will be a continuing role for outlet centres to help brands dispose of surplus stock and rebalance their supply chains. Equally consumers will be under ever greater pressure to get value for money from their hard earned cash.
