Opened in 2010, Arena occupies 65,000 sq. m and hence is one of the largest and most successful shopping malls in Voronezh. Its anchor tenants are Billa food supermarket, Media Markt electronics hypermarket, Yarmarka Mebeli (Furniture Fair), and 7-screen Luxor cinema. The shopping arcade comprises renowned global and Russian brands: New Yorker, INCITY, L'Etoile, Rive Gauche, Gloria Jeans, Adidas, Centro, Finn Flare, Zolla, Dochki&Synochki. Besides, a children's playground and a food court are available.
Arena is located in the town's biggest Kominternovsky district, which accounts for more than a third of Voronezh inhabitants. The district is notable for high housing price dynamics and comprehensive real estate development. Local citizens enjoy a unique walking park built near Arena. It is all-season and open for all comers. The park covers 8,000 sq. m and is considered one of the largest parks in the town.
Andrey Chamkin, Commercial Real Estate Director with IM Company: "Over a year ago we had outsourced Arena's marketing services and reaped great results — the shopping mall currently benefits from excellent traffic, returns, and customer loyalty. For the future we intend to strengthen our positions on the highly competitive Voronezh market by engaging professionals to work out a development strategy and optimize the tenant pool."
Georgy Naidyonov, Managing Partner and Property Management Director: "Arena appeals to Colliers International due to its significance, ambitiousness, vigorous development in terms of Voronezh as well as its private features: modern and quality architecture, variety of federal and international level operators. Speaking about prospects of retail trade in Voronezh shopping malls and backed by long-term expertise of Colliers International in the segment, I assess these prospects as feasible in the nearest future."
