Within two years, Belgrade is due to get four new major retail centres, significantly boosting the range of temptations on offer.
A new shopping centre called “Stadion” (“Stadium”) will open in the Vozdovac municipality in March. The third facility of its kind in Europe, the 74,600-square-metre centre comes with a football stadium on the roof and four levels.
The ground floor will host a hypermarket, banks, bakeries, pharmacies and cosmetics shops, while the first and second floors will feature fashion outlets, shops for children and electronics shops. The 5,000-seat stadium will be on the third floor.
Stadion will also have a food court with a balcony, a multiplex cinema and a fitness centre.
In the next couple of years Belgraders can expect other retail centres to open in the Palilula municipality, at Autokomanda and in Zemun.
Visnjicka Plaza at Palilula will cover 48,000 square metres and will offer five-level parking, two levels of retail and one for leisure.
It will include a hypermarket, a ten-screen cinema, gambling machines, a fitness centre, restaurant and food court. The centre is due to open in early 2014.
A new centre in Zemun, Power Centre, is also expected to open by the end of 2014, as well as the long-awaited Delta Planet at Autokomanda, which will be the second mall opened by Delta company.
Construction of the 180,000-square-metre Delta Planet is due to start in spring.
The centre will have a square and a café in the entrance area and, along with shops, will offer a rooftop garden, a wellness centre, restaurants, a cinema and a gym.
To keep its reform policy credible for investors, the government must find common ground with the IMF and look for a new arrangement, experts say.
