Milan, Italy Milan is the industrial, commercial and financial capital of Italy and is one of the world’s most famous fashion centres. Its economy is dominated by the service sector and is the most favoured location for multinational headquarters in Italy and hosts a large professional and administrative workforce. It benefits from a sizeable and varied potential consumer base, thanks to a large student population attending some of the top state and private universities and a number of fashion and design events adding to more conventional business tourism. High street The city centre comprises two distinct but very affluent shopping districts; the first is the upmarket area around Via Montenapoleone which encompasses three further streets into the ‘quadrilatero della moda’ fashion district. The second is the more mainstream area around Piazza del Duomo and encompases the pedestrianised Corso Vittorio Emanuele. This offer is completed by luxury department stores la Rinascente, facing the Duomo square, and the Excelsior. Despite the subdued economic outlook, Milan’s high street retains its attractiveness to mainstream and luxury retailers as well as consumers alike, with recent openings including Prada and Micheal Kors. The strong retailer demand has helped keep rental levels stable. Rents in the very best locations in the ‘quadrilatero della moda’ fetch double that of standard units in the same area. Shopping centres The best Milanese shopping centres lie outside the city. The recently extended Carosello is the most important scheme, it is located to the north east and hosts a traditional fashion line-up. Milanofiori, together with the nearby retail park, creates a critical mass to the south, serving a large working population with an extensive food court and strong tenant line-up. During the next three to five years there are plans for a number of significant shopping centre developments to the east and also in the north west quadrant of the city.
