Economic Impact of Shopping Center Developments

The REMI Policy Insight model was contracted for use by the International Council of Shopping Centers to assess three American shopping center developments and their corresponding economies. REMI was asked to model the total economic impacts in three distinct regional economies associated with various levels of site investment and operational employment. The study identified the distinctions between the four types of shopping centers and the types of industries each shopping center would commonly rely on, as well as the regional distinctions that make each evaluated area so unique.
