What can technology do for you?
So, technology has changed the world right? Where does the retail property lag in its understanding of technology and its relationship to consumers?

Technology that enables human connection now appears to be driving the revolution so what does that mean for retail and retail property?

Study Tour to Royal Albert Dock
Designed by Jesse Hartley and originally opened in 1846, Albert Dock is the largest group of Grade I listed buildings in the UK, and located on the spectacular Liverpool waterfront – a UNESCO world heritage site. There is no better backdrop for the creation of a prime retail and leisure destination. The Dock was recently awarded Royal status to mark its role in the City’s maritime history.
Since acquiring the commercial element in 2016, Aberdeen Standard Investments have undertaken works to reconfigure much of the commercial space to increase its appeal and suitability to a new mix of operators. Albert Dock is a unique space and the letting strategy has been reflective of this, with quality, independent operators across all sectors having been carefully targeted to join a strong, new line-up.
Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool, as it is now known, has been a tourist hot-spot since it was re-developed in the 1980’s, with 6.2 million visitors to the Estate during 2018. The ASI strategy is to create a destination which appeals to both tourists and the local audience.
