Accurately describe and apply the key characteristics of a shopping centre as an investment. Prepare a comprehensive tenancy schedule

Assessment title: Commercial Report

Assessment weighting: 50%

Semesters 1 & 2, 2023/2024

Assessment Brief 2

The Assessment

Select a shopping centre that is for sale, or you have some knowledge of through online sources. Please look to the case studies that we discuss in class and complete your independent research to find suitable options

You should emphasise the missed opportunities that you can take advantage of to add value. Identifying a shopping centre that has the potential for you to show your vision and entrepreneurial flair is crucial.

You will see problems that can be solved and must report on these, but the emphasis in this coursework is to recognise those extra things that can be undertaken. In some cases, previous students and apprentices have made radical changes to their portfolio, yet for others, minimal changes have given excellent returns, for example, on high value, well-managed investments.

Practical tips:

It is recommended that you select your shopping centre early, rather than waiting until later in Semester 2, so that you can discuss emerging issues with your peers and your Module Leader/teaching team. You will also find that the teaching content may influence your approach to the coursework.

You will find that the EG Radius, or CoStar database will be helpful to you in this assessment (available via the University LLR database search engine). You should establish your login details early on in the module.

There must be a section considering the most important terms of the leases for the properties in the portfolio, or the main standard lease terms you would expect if you do not have access to the actual terms. If you are putting in place new leases, you should also propose a brief head of terms.

You should also review your feedback from coursework 1 which may be useful to you in this assessment. While the properties are different between coursework 1 and 2, the strategies, decision-making, and nature of advice giving may be similar in places.

Once you have selected and identified your portfolio, look back over your decision route. You will see that you had several clear strategies and a choice of tactics on how to achieve each one. Therefore, you must also include your strategy and tactics within your submission. If you changed your strategy and/or tactics, then please also state how and why.

Please note that there is a formative feedback deadline for your Short Form report template of 8th April 2024. Further guidance on this will be provided on Blackboard and during class sessions

Assessment criteria

The assessment criteria and weightings show you what is important in the assessment and how marks are shared across each criterion. When you are completing your assessment, remember you need to fulfil the brief and the assessment criteria below. At the end of this document, we have provided you with a more detailed marking grid, often called the ‘rubric’ which describes both the expectation for each criterion and how marks would be awarded based upon performance.

Commercial Report (4,000 words): this allows students and learners to establish strategic decision-making to add value across a shopping centre scheme. Again, they will apply the theory learned especially in corporate management, along with the application of the law and case law, to advise on opportunities and constraints and make recommendations for how to successfully manage and maximise the value of the shopping centre. This assessment draws on LO5 (characteristics of commercial), LO6 (strategic decision-making and value-add), LO7 (innovative ideas and sound management), and LO8 (law and case law for commercial)
