2020 | Russia | Regions | Retail Market

One of the main challenges of 2020 was the coronavirus pandemic, which affected the activities of many shopping centres. In general, in 2020, three shopping facilities were opened – KazanMall in Kazan (GLA 53,000 sq m), Green Park (ex-Golden Park) in Nizhnevartovsk (GLA 50,674 sq m) and Baltia Mall in Kaliningrad (GLA 40,500 sq m). Ten projects previously announced for opening in 2020 were postponed to 2021, which directly affected the number of openings in the regions. Many retailers postponed the signing of lease agreements until the situation stabilizes. This led owners of shopping centres to postpone openings so as not to bring less filled projects to the market. At the end of the year, the availability of retail space per 1,000 residents in regional cities in Russia (except for Moscow and St. Petersburg) increased to 135 sq m (against 134 sq m in 2019).
