Vastned invests in selected cities in Europe with a clear focus on the best retail property in the most popular shopping streets. Vastned's tenants are strong and leading international and national retail brands.
Premium cities are attractive cities with positive demographic growth, strong purchasing power, a historic city centre, tourist appeal and the presence of national and international institutions and universities.
These cities offer a unique shopping experience through its authenticity, making consumers prefer to go shopping here and national and international retailers prefer to have outlets. Next to core city assets in premium cities there is some room for other high-quality properties in the property portfolio like Belgian baanwinkels, well-located supermarkets and mixed retail locations in smaller and mid-sized cities.
