Linstow Center Management Opens Expanded Ülemiste Shopping Centre after Reconstruction in Tallinn

On 23 October, Linstow Center Management (LCM), the developer of the Galactico shopping centres (Alfa, Galerija Centrs, Mols, Dole, and Origo) and real estate operator, opens Ülemiste shopping centre after reconstruction in Tallinn. LCM has invested 40 million euro in reconstruction of the shopping centre in the period between September 2013 and October 2014.

”Since opening of Ülemiste shopping centre in April 2004, ten years of successful operation have passed. In order to keep up with the city, surrounding environment and its infrastructure and to meet ever growing demand of customers for a more extensive range of stores and selection of goods that lead to growing demand of tenants for retail space, we have completed the reconstruction of the shopping centre.  As a result of this, the existing part of the shopping centre has obtained new image and interior design. The upgraded shopping centre can boast renewed and modern branding,” says Frode Gronvold, CEO of LCM, when speaking of the implementation of the project.

Upon completion of reconstruction, gross building area (GBA) will be doubled and reach 92,500 m2, instead of previous 49,700 m2, and instead of currently available 160 shops, 205 diverse shops, cafes and restaurants will be open to customers.  In the course of expansion of the shopping centre a multi-level car park having an area of 13,400 m2 has been constructed and offers convenient parking in a covered car park.

Ülemiste shopping centre offers 205 shops, cafes and restaurants and a full range of services. With the expansion, such shops as H&M, H&M Home, Zara, Mohito, Reserved, Crop, Sinsay, House, Sports Direct, River Island, Tommy Hilfiger, Next, Calvin Klein, Tom Taylor, Marc O’Polo and others, have opened their doors in Ülemiste.

Several services aimed at customer convenience will be introduced as well, such as stroller rental, wheelchair rental for people with impaired physical mobility and old people, digital timetable displays for public transport, mobile phone charging, and other services.

Expansion of Ülemiste shopping centre meets the desires and demands of a modern shopper. With the aim to create sustainable environment, nature patterns, such as stone, flowers, trees, water, sun, have been used in the interior design. For the first time in the Baltic countries, in cooperation with The Sound Agency, special background music playlists conforming to brand identity of Ülemiste have been created for diverse areas in the shopping centre. The use of special sound absorbing materials for ceiling structures reduces noise level and creates pleasant and quiet atmosphere. Ülemiste is the first shopping centre in the Baltic countries that intends to obtain a certificate of BREEAM (British Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), the world’s leading design and assessment system for sustainable buildings.
