The article comprises the analysis and the vision of the development of the largescale retail real estate in Latvia. The authors focus their attention on the large-scale shopping centers of over 360 thousand sq.m of gross leasable area and planned to be a little less than doubled up to 2015. The objective is to analyse the target audience and the business scope, therefore the authors decide on the standardisation of the shopping centers as the objects of the research, the spatial planning concept for the retail real estate within the theoretical and practical scope.
