The concept masterplan has been completed for The Mall of Baltia, the first ‘super’ retail and leisure centre in the region of Kaliningrad, a seaport city and the administrative center of Kaliningrad Oblast, the Russian enclave between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea.
The design for the 100,000 sqm scheme, which will be the largest of its kind in the region, has been completed by global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan, which will provide a range of detailed masterplanning and architectural design services to developer Gamma Invest Group as the project advances.
The Mall of Baltia will include a large shopping mall, restaurant area, amusement park, as well as a sports centre and water sports centre, with parking for over 3,000 vehicles. It will provide a strong sense of place, with an inclusive and diverse range of recreational, entertainment and sporting facilities to enhance the retail element.
The developer is satisfied with the results of collaboration with Broadway Malyan and encouraged by the level of interest shown in the project – including from potential tenants at the recent MAPIC 2013 event where the project was presented.
Broadway Malyan’s Warsaw-based Director of Architecture Robert Kaminski said: “Completion of the concept masterplan is a major milestone in this key project and a further success for our expert design team in Poland, which is partnering with clients across a range of sectors on the back of our strong reputation in the retail sector in the CEE region and enhancing its presence in the CIS region.”
