“...Extraordinary: Gibbs has popped the hood and taken apart the engine of commercial design and development, showing us each individual part and explaining fit, form and function.”—Yaromir Steiner, Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Steiner + Associates

“...the most comprehensive and expansive book ever written on the subject of Retail Real Estate Development.  Gibbs is by far the most prominent advocate for reforming retail planning and development in order to return American cities to economic and physical prominence” –Stefanos Polyzoides, Moule & Polyzoides Architects & Urbanists

The retail environment has evolved rapidly in the past few decades, with the retailing industry and its placement and design of "brick-and-mortar" locations changing with evolving demographics, shopping behavior, transportation options and a desire in recent years for more unique shopping environments.

Written by a leading expert, this is a guide to planning for retail development for urban planners, urban designers and architects. It includes an overview of history of retail design, a look at retail and merchandising trends, and principles for current retail developments.

Principles of Urban Retail Planning and Development will:

  • Provide insight and techniques necessary for historic downtowns and new urban communities to compete with modern suburban shopping centers.
  • Promote sustainable community building and development by making it more profitable for the shopping center industry to invest in historic cities or to develop walkable urban communities.
  • Includes case studies of recent good examples of retail development

Keywords: Planning, retail, architecture, planning, urban design, development, malls, lifestyle center, town centers, Main Street, Robert Gibbs, New Urbanism
