"Moscow is the largest northern megalopolis in the world with a population of over 12.5 million people. Recently, the city image has changed significantly, and this includes not only the territory improvement, but also the creation of more attractive business conditions. Today, the Russian commercial real estate market is at the peak of its attractiveness, and it is Moscow that offers the most liquid and profitable investment objects. All these factors explain, why Moscow ranks so high. Moreover, recently, according to the Colliers research, Moscow has joined the top 5 most promising cities in terms of retail development in 2020, along with such promising markets as Dubai, Miami, Shanghai and Tokyo."
