GVRD RETAIL REPORT YEAR END HIGHLIGHTS

2006

MARKET OUTLOOK British Columbia’s economy continues to thrive. Population growth and rising income has sparked a record year for retail sales, which is expected to climb to $53.4 billion in 2007, an increase of $3.5 billion from the previous year. A Conference Board of Canada report predicts that Canadian consumers’ spending habits will be on the rise for the next four years leading up to the Olympics, with retail industry profits reaching record levels by 2010. Increasing labour and material costs are projected to cut into profits in 2007, but will rebound between 2008 and 2010 as developers become more able to accurately plan for rising construction costs. INVESTMENT SALES In the second half of 2006 there were over 160 transactions of retail properties, totaling over $282 million. The largest retail transaction was the London Plaza Shopping Centre in Richmond for $37 million dollars, a 6.5% capitalization rate. The Impact Plaza at the corner of 152nd Street and 100th Avenue in Surrey was the second largest transaction and sold for $30.4 million dollars. The plaza contains 134,250 sq.ft. of commercial space that includes 22,327 sq.ft. of office on the second and third floor.

YEAR END HIGHLIGHTS

DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER Many of the Downtown parkades have undergone or are expected to undergo redevelopment in the future, an example of which is the parkade at Smithe and Seymour, that has recently been demolished. Other parkades that are going to be redeveloped are The Bay parkade, located on Richards north of Georgia, and the parkade at Smithe and Richards. With the decline of available public parking Downtown, rates of other existing parkades are starting to rise. If this trend continues, many customers will be deterred from shopping Downtown and will choose to do their shopping at big box stores in the suburbs where there is ample free parking. However, with the construction of the RAV line, Downtown will be even more accessible to pedestrians.

LOOKING AHEAD BC is expected to continue to outperform the healthy national economy in 2007, and should continue to experience a thriving economy well into 2010. In 2007, we expect to see home centres, hardware stores, pharmacies and personal care stores to flourish. Home centres and hardware stores saw a 24% increase in retail sales in October 2006 over 2005. Pharmacies and personal care stores experienced an 11% gain during the same period. Also in 2007, we expect to continue to see the trend of box retailers seeking out urban locations, such as the first multi-level Canadian Tire store and Best Buy on Cambie and the downtown Costco in Vancouver.
