Shopping centre landlord Vicinity Centres advised in the week ending 25 January that it had reduced the value of its portfolio by $37 million. Although the write-down represented only a 0.2 per cent reduction in the value of Vicinity’s portfolio, Citi analysts have heralded it as being "symbolically significant" in a research note. Citi has stated that retail is its least preferred property option, and that recent news regarding the retail property sector suggests that conditions are declining more quickly than had previously been thought.
