Slovakia to get more shopping malls

Construction and expansion of shopping centres in Slovakia will continue.

 

“Slovakia expects extensive construction and expansion of shopping centres in 2017 and 2018,” said Katarína Paule, head of the retail team at Cushman & Wakefield in Slovakia. “In 2017, there will be as much as 56,258 square meters in total to be completed, with 83 percent being new shopping centres, and 17 percent planned expansions of already existing projects.”

 

In the centre of Martin, the construction of the new Galeria Martin shopping mall is close to completion with the opening slated for late November and the expansion of the existing Tulip shopping centre is to be finished shortly. In addition, the opening of the Eperia shopping centre is planned in Prešov and in Košice, the Stanica project will be expanded by more than 1,000 square meters.

 

In 2018 two shopping centres should be built. The 5,537-square metre Point shopping centre in Banská Bystrica will open during the first half of 2018 and the modernised Trnavské Mýto underpass in Bratislava should provide 1,350 square metres of retail space.

 

Expansions will also include the Europa project in Zvolen, which will be extended by 8,600 square metres.

 

The total area of shopping centres in Europe amounted to 160.8 million square metres during the first half of 2017. This means a decrease of 11 percent compared to the same period of 2016.

Although Slovakia has so far been able to attract new investors, in the not so distant future it may have problems with the placement of further investments. The reasons for this are the steadily declining availability of labour, the very slow development of road infrastructure and the lack of readiness of land suitable for the development of industrial parks, according to Martin Varačka, director of the industrial real estate division of the real estate consulting company CBRE in Slovakia.
