Seven months before its planned opening the Eperia shopping centre, built by J&T Real Estate and the first modern shopping centre in Prešov, is already 80 percent occupied, according to Reality Trend. The official opening is planned for the middle of November.
Prešov is the last regional city to benefit from such a centre, wrote Reality Trend adding that, the complex is being constructed at the Sekčov housing estate between Kaufland and Lidl.
Eperia will bring more than 100 shops and services and a gastro corner and relax zones. The brands H&M, C&A, New Yorker, Lindex, CCC, 4F, Yves Rocher, A3 Sport, Pandorra, klenoty Aurum, 101 Drogerie, Tescoma, kaderníctvo Vogue Club, Pinky Club, Bepon, Planeo Elektro, Koh-i-Noor and Fortuna are all represented among the lessees.
Among services the clients will find a branch of the Slovak post office, Telekom, Orange, O2, Tatra bank, Poštová bank and Slovenská sporiteľňa, healthy food from the Fresh Supermarket, the Café Dias and the Cuban bar, La Cubanita. The whole rentable area measures 22,000 square metres, informed Reality Trend.
“We are trying to offer Prešov-dwellers a mix of shops and services where everything can be found under one roof,” said Peter Píš, the leasing and marketing manager of the project.
The central square rising up through two floors should become a dominant feature of the complex. Besides the relaxation zones with their greenery there will also be several panoramic elevators which will connect the shopping areas with the underground parking lot where there will be space for 200 vehicles. Another 400 parking spaces will be provided in the surrounding area, describes Reality Trend.
The investor of the project is estimating 12,000 visitors daily.
“It is important that Prešov-dwellers change their habits and don’t shop so often in Košice,” said Píš. Eperia will provide 700 job vacancies, stated Reality Trend.
A second shopping centre is also planned for Prešov. The Dutch Multi Development company has permission to remove Tesco in the city centre. Construction of shopping Forum centre is due to start this year, Reality Trend informed.
