Author: News Editor

Master plan for new 48,000 square metre shopping "experience" includes Entertainment Zone with multiplex cinema. Developer reveals it has received enquiries from international retail brands.

Immochan Ukraine, the retail development subsidiary of the Auchan Group, has revealed it will open one of the largest shopping centres in Donetsk Oblast (a large province in South-Eastern Ukraine) during the first half of 2014. The announcement was made at the Fifteenth Annual International Exhibition of Hand-Forged Ironmongery which took place in the city of Donetsk from 20 to 22 September and was supported by the developer.

Philippe Beurtheret, Managing Director of Immochan Ukraine, Valentin Serrano from the company's International Department and Operations Director, Alain Delumeau hosted a press event that included cutting of a red tape and the unmasking of the official Rose Park (as the development will be called) "forged" rose symbol. The trio also paid tribute to one of the symbol's creators, Viktor Burduk, who is the Chairman of the Donbass Blacksmiths Guild and founding organiser of the international ironmongery exhibition.  

A 3.5 metre replica of the symbol will be erected in a park adjacent to the shopping mall when it opens in Spring 2014.

The new €30 million (£25 million) shopping centre will be built on a site served by the 114 kilometre Slovyansk-Donetsk-Mariupol Highway which is one of the region's busiest thoroughfares. Initial projections indicate it will receive in excess of 1.5 million visitors a year and create more than 300 local jobs.

Facilities will include a large Entertainment Zone with a multiplex cinema and the developer says the project has already attracted interest from global retail brands.

Justifying his company's new investment, Philippe Beurtheret commented: "Immochan Ukraine began developing projects in Ukraine in 2008. In Donetsk, our first project was the Auchan Donskoy hypermarket and the decision to build the biggest shopping center in the region here has been taken to extend our capabilities further".

He added that the company plans to develop the surrounding area and participate actively in the community. "We will create a beautiful park for people who live near the mall and support the transport infrastructure. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for the residents of Donetsk".

Viktor Burduk awarded representatives of Rose Park a diploma for their active participation at the event.
