«Present shopping centers have already shown the local citizen’s inertest in comfort shopping. However, at high enough buying power, provision of the citizens in Petrozavodsk with modern qualitative retail spaces is nowadays 5 time less than in Saint-Petersburg. This fact and the popularity of operating hypermarket Sigma have created the prerequisites for the development of the project of new SCH. We expect that the coverage area of the project will consist almost half of the urban population. We are sure, that Colliers International relying on it’s great experience will ensure the complex balanced concept, owing to what new SCH becomes a real gift for citizens.

«The inauguration of SCH will mark the new phase in development of large-format trading Real Estate in Petrozavodsk. The facility has a great potential. Fortunate location at the exit of the city, the existence of big DIY center will increase coverage area of SCH and attract customers including people from the other cities. The scope of the center is one more extra advantage, which ensures the interest to the project among operators of international and federal level from all the product categories. This fact is confirmed by the results of the prebrokerage. We are planning to bring to the capital of Karelia new brands of clothes, shoes and accessories, which haven’t appeared in the market of Petrozavodsk and can successfully compete with standard pool of leaseholders of most of shopping centers of the city».
