Trinity Leeds wins 2015 VIVA Best-of-the-Best Award

Trinity Leeds (Innesco’s client) has been awarded the 2015 Best-of-the-Best VIVA Design Award, presented this week at ICSC’s annual RECon Conference in Las Vegas, attended by over 34,000 retail property professionals. The Land Securities shopping centre, which opened in Leeds city centre in March 2013, was recognised for its outstanding architecture, as it continues to set the benchmark for market-leading, modern centres, both in the UK and abroad. “VIVA” stands for Vision, Innovation, Value, Achievement.

Trinity Leeds’ world-class retail and leisure offer, set in a stunning shopping environment, has acted as a major catalyst for the resurgence of the city’s retail market over the last two years, bringing 65 news brands to Leeds (including 22 international retailers), and contributing towards the city’s growing status as one of the top three retail venues in the UK.[1]

Dan Innes, Managing Director for Innesco, commented: “The VIVA Best-of-the-Best Award validates Trinity Leeds’ reputation as the industry-leading shopping centre. The Innesco team is thrilled to have supported Trinity Leeds this past year, spotlighting the best in class aspects of the centre.

Trinity Leeds was automatically submitted for the 2015 VIVA Awards after winning the ICSC’s Best New Development 2014 in the Large Retail Projects category.

Day of reckoning for developers


And so, it’s finally here. What has been billed as the closest election in a generation, a seismic moment in the future of British politics, the final death knell of the two-party system all comes down to what ordinary people do in polling stations across the country over the next twelve hours. Except, of course, it doesn’t, because the very fact that it’s so close (or so the pollsters tell us) means the uncertainty could last days, weeks, months – even culminating in a second General Election further down the line.

 

You wouldn’t be alone in thinking one election is quite enough for one year. However, with most polls predicting that the Conservatives are likely to win approximately 290 seats – more than Labour but well short of the 323 David Cameron would need to command a Commons majority – a second vote is not out of the question.

 

And, in the meantime, investors and developers will be continuing to plan for what the various possible outcomes could mean for the next four years.

 

There is no one issue that will decide the outcome of this uncertain and sometimes bewildering campaign. However, whichever party – or, more likely, parties – emerges with the keys to No. 10, it will have to find a way to build more homes.

 

So far, no party has managed to convince either the industry or the electorate that is has a convincing solution to the housing shortage. Each has pledged to increase the number of homes, but it has often seemed that the numbers bandied about are being plucked out of the air, without any sums to back them up.

 

The Tories have said they will build 200,000 new “starter homes” for first-time buyers, alongside their big-ticket – and controversial – manifesto pledge to extend right to buy to housing association properties. Labour has promised to oversee the construction of 200,000 new homes a year by 2020, the Lib Dems have proposed 300,000 a year and all three main parties have talked with varying degrees of vagueness about creating new garden cities.

 

What has been lacking from the conversation has been any real acknowledgement that central government can’t make this happen on its own.

 

As well as the 650 Parliamentary seats being decided today, there are 280 elections taking place for unitary, district and local councils,  as well as for six directly elected mayors in Bedford, Copeland in Cumbria, Leicester, Mansfield in Nottinghamshire, Middlesbrough and Torbay in Devon.

 

While it may not be top of the list for central government, the devolution of powers – including planning – to local areas is an agenda that has been steadily gaining momentum, with Manchester at the vanguard of the change – in England at least.

 

For any of the parties to come good on their housing promises, they will need to find a way to help developers increase housing supply within local planning constraints, and with the support of local people and politicans.

 

With 80 percent of the public agreeing that the UK is in the grips of a housing crisis, it is a challenge the new government cannot afford to shirk.

 

So, the waiting game continues – for now at least. Let’s see what happens tomorrow!

Innesco Supports St.Petersburg Bridge & Media City Project


INNESCO ПОДДЕРЖИВАЕТ ПРОЕКТ ПО СТРОИТЕЛЬСТВУ МОСТА И МЕДИАСИТИ В САНКТ-ПЕТЕРБУРГЕ

Innesco было выбрано компанией Spicer Oppenheim для проведения B2B медиа кампании в России, Европе и Великобритании с целью информирования о инвестиционном статусе и выборе девелопера для нового «Моста Чемпионов», МедиаСити и крупного развлекательного комплекса стоимостью €100млн. в Санкт-Петербурге, Россия. Данный проект является частью городского мастер-плана по поддержке Чемпионата Мира по футболу 2018.
Spicer Oppenheim – ведущая девелоперская компания, работающая в сфере коммерческой, жилой и многофункциональной недвижимости, пригласила Innesco для работы по повышению интереса и узнаваемости проекта в Санкт-Петербурге. Новый проект, разработка которого осуществляется совместно со стратегическим партнером – компанией AECOM, имеет огромное значение для Санкт-Петербурга.

Новый пешеходный мост протяженностью 1000 м. свяжет северный берег реки Невки и
Крестовский остров в Санкт-Петербурге (Россия). Также будут построены «Медиасити», предназначенный для национальных и международных ТВ и медиа компаний, и многофункциональный развлекательный комплекс с зоной для фанатов, ресторанами, барами, отелями, озелененными набережными и другими площадками для досуга.

В течение одного месяца команда Innesco, включающая носителей русского языка, провела работу с журналистами и организовала размещение информации в основных профессиональных и бизнес изданиях в России, Европе и Великобритании c медиа охватом 550 000 и медиа эффективностью USD 32000.

Пол Джарвис (Paul Jarvis), генеральный директор компании Spicer Oppenheim: «Международная команда, говорящая на разных языках, контакты и отличное знание индустрии позволили компании Innesco, расположенной в Лондоне, охватить и Российскую аудиторию. Они распространили пресс-релиз на английском и русском языках, помогая нам достичь хороших результатов как в России так и в Европе – информируя о значительном и важном для Санкт-Петербурга будущем проекте».
Дэн Иннес (Dan Innes), генеральный директор Innesco: «Наша команда профессионалов сумела в короткие сроки определить местные, национальные и международные приоритеты и эффективно использовать нашу обширную международную сеть медиа контактов. Нам очень приятно принимать участие в таком важном и значимом для города проекте.»

Innesco Supports St.Petersburg Bridge & Media City Project
Innesco has been appointed by Spicer Oppenheim to conduct a B2B media campaign in Russia, Europe and the UK announcing investment and preferred developer status for the new €100m ‘Bridge of Champions’, MediaCity and major leisure complex in St Petersburg, Russia. The development project is part of the City’s masterplan to support the 2018 World Cup football tournament.
Spicer Oppenheim, a prominent UK based commercial, residential and mixed-use property developer, wanted to generate interest and awareness in this new significant project for the city of St Petersburg – being developed with its strategic partners AECOM.
The major new development will create a 1,000m pedestrian bridge linking the North bank of the Neva River, St Petersburg (Russia) to Krestovsky Island. It will also include the new ‘MediaCity’ dedicated to national and international Television and Media companies and a mixed use leisure complex which will provide a ‘fan zone’ and a variety of restaurants, bars, hotels, extensive landscaped public open space and other leisure uses on the waterfront.
Within one month, and using its in-house native Russian speaking team, Innesco briefed journalists and the media to achieve coverage in the main trade property and business titles in Russia, Europe and the UK with a total media value of €30,000, to an audience of 550,000.

Paul Jarvis, CEO of Spicer Oppenheim commented ‘With its multilingual team, network, and knowledge of the industry, Innesco was able to reach out to the Russian market from London. They distributed the release in both English and Russian, helping us to achieve important coverage locally in Russia as well as with pan-European audiences – helping to get the project recognised as the next major development to get approval in St Petersburg.’
Dan Innes, MD at Innesco added “Our expert team were able to get up to speed with local, national and international priorities very quickly, and leverage our international media network to great effect. We are delighted to be involved with such an important, landmark project for the City. “

Yoox Net-A-Porter Merger: The Amazon of fashion?


So, Yoox is merging with Richemont Net-A-Porter to create “Yoox Net-A-Porter Group”. For most in the e-commerce retail business landscape this is the headline of the day. We’ve even started the hashtag #YxNaP in its honour. For those who are used to following Stock Market shenanigans this might sound like an old story, given the fact that these two major European luxury e-commerce platforms have been talking about this merger for at least a year now – but for those who are monitoring the stock market, it is worth noting that  YOOX hit +10% in Milano after the announcement.

What do you need to know about the deal? Well, the news was cleverly anticipated by the #BBC yesterday in an article titled Yoox and Net-A-Porter in merger talks. #Reuters is more confident, and already talks about an acquisition: An Italian retailer just acquired Net-a-Porter. As we write all the major newspapers are all publishing the news.

It’s interesting to notice that the UK media are talking about “an Italian retailer acquiring a UK retailer”, while Italian media tends to refer to it more as a “UK retailer investing in YOOX”. International diplomacy rules!

The bottom line is that the combined Italian and the British e-commerce platforms will become industry leaders with a capital value of €2.5bn (£1.8 / $2.66 bn) – a veritable powerhouse by anyone’s standards.

YOOX and Net-a-Porter’s own comments makes impact of the decision quite clear –

“Established business models are being increasingly disrupted by the technological giants,” Johann Rupert, Richemont Chairman said in a statement. “It is with this in mind that we believe it is important to increase leadership and size to protect the uniqueness of the luxury industry.” Soruce: UK Business Insider

Federico Marchetti CEO Yoox said:

“This is a game-changing merger between two pioneering companies that have already radically transformed the marketplace since 2000 and will now shift the industry paradigm once again. Together, we plan to expand on our many combined successes and industry breadth to strengthen partnerships with the world’s leading luxury brands and harness a significant untapped growth potential.” Source: Business of Fashion.

We see two main positive implications in this agreement.

On one hand the two giants will be able to join their efforts in tackling the main challenges for luxury e-commerce in 2015:

  • delivery method
  • stock accuracy
  • personalization
  • mobile experience

Technological investments and marketing strategies are, after all, a fundamental combination for the growth of online retail. 

On the other hand this agreement can become a game changer in the luxury e-commerce scenario: will these two giants become the Amazon of fashion? But how will small, emerging brands be included in the new common strategy? This is where one characteristic of the Yoox business model becomes interesting: the mono-brands e-shop for the big fashion houses now appears as “powered by Yoox”. Will the new business consider the needs of smaller, emerging brands? – we hope so. Will those small brands will become part of the Yoox successful business model who brought the company to grow of +9.4% in 2014? – we think it’s vital to the lifeblood of the luxury sector. 

We’ll all discover more more on May 22nd when Richemont (owner of Net-a-Porter) will present its annual results announcement – watch this space!

The Life Cycle


You might be surprised to know that only 2.5 per cent of the public accept innovations upon release. Thus, it’s extremely impressive when a novel product survives in the marketplace and becomes commonplace. However, once an innovation reaches this stage, can it undergo a widespread, newfound popularity without being completely revamped?

 

As the first bicycle was introduced in 1817, we weren’t present to witness its adoption by the masses, but many of us have noticed the drastic upsurge of its sport – cycling – in recent years. The sport has come a long way since the first Tour de France race in 1903, in which 60 riders rode 2,428 kilometres of flat French landscape for a little over 2 weeks. Last year, the Tour de France celebrated its 101st birthday with 198 riders from 22 teams conquering 3,500-kilometres of multifarious terrain for 23 days.

 

There are various reasons for cycling’s astonishing lifespan and surprise resurgence, including everything from scandalous athlete-pseudo-celebs to effective ecological benefits and global bike shares. However, the sport’s fervent fan base has undisputedly spearheaded the cycling campaign. To illustrate, over 3.5 billion viewers from 180 countries tuned in to watch the Tour de France 2014 – more than the 2012 Olympic or World Cup Final. Clearly, cycling has taken the world by storm.

Bike shares around the world

Bike shares around the world

 

The UK retail and property sectors are receptive to the bike’s revival by catering to this expanding, passionate niche market. Cafes tailored to the cycling community are the country’s new necessity with community favourites like Look Mum No Hands! in London that provides patrons loaner locks for their bikes while they enjoy food, cycle-focused film screenings or rider speed dating, Brighton’s Velo Café offers bi-weekly rides, Ronde in Edinburgh doubles as a café and cycling apparel shop, and Your Bike Shed in York promises repairs while you relax and refuel on some of their locally sourced goods.

 

The retail and property sectors haven’t stopped peddling at cakes and cafes. This year, MIPIM and MAPIC celebrate their 10th anniversary coordinating with the fundraising charity Cycle To… in order to raise money for various charities. In 2014, MIPIM and MAPIC raised over £270,000 for Coram and other charities. Phenomenally, the retail and property sectors have transformed the notoriously solitary sport into a communal culture with convivial spaces and events.

It’s fair to say that cycling enthusiasts are not merely ‘fans’ of a sport, but sponsors for a way of life. As throngs of people embed cycling in their daily routine, retailers’ products are shifting from athletic apparel into fashion and lifestyle goods. A surge of fashion brands are blending modern menswear pieces and cycling gear, like US-based Parker Dusseau and the Incotex x Mr Porter Urban Cycling collection. Both supply oxford and polo shirts, suits, chinos and accessories with innovative fabrics or inlaid reflective-trim to accommodate active lifestyles, while Hackney St. Cloud caters to fashionable female riders. Last July, Trinity Leeds featured a pop-up shop for the Yorkshire’s Grand Départ of the Tour de France. On the day of the event, over 96,000 cycling fans flocked to purchase the shop’s unique fashion offers.

The global cycling frenzy fascinates us because it’s a paradox – while retailers are working to engender experiences into their shops, the experience of riding a bike has, in turn, stimulated existing retailers and provoked the creation of fresh brands. Bikes, once reserved for children, hyper-athletes or hipsters, are the people’s transportation more than ever. Retailers are responding in creative ways and we’re excited to witness future developments.

MIPIM: Celebrating Mr Paul Golding


It’s official – MIPIM is only one week away. Can you believe it’s been a year? It’s hard to say what the team is looking forward to the most – the sunny, 17-degree weather that greets us in Cannes, or the highly-anticipated networking events and project announcements.

There’s been a huge amount of preparation to ensure everything runs smoothly – with over 340 registered stands representing 45 countries, including the small but mighty United Kingdom, which is exhibiting 56 stands – the second highest amount after France. As of today, 20,030 attendees including over 280 journalists are eagerly preparing to congregate next week at the Palais de Festivals. None was quite as organized Mr Paul Golding of Perella Weinberg Partners who registered for MIPIM 2015 back in June 2014 – now that’s organisation!
MIPIM has flourished as the premier global property event since its launch in 1990. Not only does MIPIM bring together sector-wide specialists, but, let’s be honest, it forces us to organise (then re-organise) schedules to accommodate the event, stock up on business cards and nurofen, scrutinise databases and filing systems, and purchase new notepads and company pens among so many other things.

What better way to toast 26 years of collaboration and creativity amongst leading real estate professionals than to raise a glass to the first to register – bravo Mr Golding! We hope to see you and everyone else in the Palais and out on the Croisette.
