Large format retail premises
Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by the State of Victoria (Australia) in 2016, defines large format retail premises as: ‘…mostly free-standing buildings or complexes with a single large building footprint, and associated infrastructure. They are often single-level or low-rise buildings and they may include large at-grade car parking lots or car parking structures. They can be shopping centres, supermarkets, restricted retail premises or department stores. Large format retail premises differ from other large buildings with regard to visitor patterns, goods delivery requirements, and goods display practices. They are often located in high visibility places, for example at major road intersections or adjacent to highways that are highly accessible by car.’
