RETAIL IS NOT DYING IT IS EVOLVING
As e-commerce rivals traditional brick-and-mortar, more emphasis is being placed on the human-scaled interaction of the retail environment.
With the return to urban cores and changes in transportation, location and access of retail is drastically shifting from the traditional model. More and more retail is being integrated into mixed-use projects, encapsulating creative office, residential, hospitality and entertainment, to create a one-stop destination for consumers. RDC is at the forefront of shaping the ever changing, all-encompassing, and fluid future of retail.
RETAIL IS DIVERSE AND SO ARE WE
RDC has deep expertise in all aspects of the retail architecture market sector. We comprehensively look at retail, creating places that speak to landlord, tenant and consumers, ultimately developing places where people want to interact and shop. From designing malls, lifestyle and town centers, to working with tenants both large and small developing store plans, prototypes, and roll-out implementation, to repositioning existing retail, RDC envisions all things retail. Our expertise reaches to all aspects the retail realm touches, be that entertainment, hotels, creative offices, or residential.
