Shopping Center Driada will be built in the central part of Podolsk one of the largest cities in the Moscow region. The four-level shopping center will include a supermarket and traditional food market, electronic goods, a large children's goods store, fashion gallery, food court and entertainment zone. The GBA is 15,000 m² with GLA totaling 10,000 m² and 400 parking lots will be available for visitors. Driada is in the final construction phase and installation of the engineering system is in process. The grand opening is planned for autumn 2011.
Cushman & Wakefield - exclusive letting agent of Driada is now marketing the project.
Driada shopping center has good visibility and transport accessibility. The project is situated at intersections of main transport veins of the city Sverdlova, Kiriova and Bolshaya Serpuhovskaya streets, and will be a shopping destination for all Podolsk citizens. The five-minute drive catchment area is over 70,000 people and a new residential district is being built in the nearest proximity.
Podolsk is situated 15 km south of Moscow. According to 2010 statistics Podolsk's population totals 200,000 people with an average income per capita RUB 32,166 (approx. 802) per month.
"We are sure that Driada will be in demand from retailers comments Victor Rozenberg, Senior Consultant, Retail Services, Cushman & Wakefield.
"Podolsk is a very dynamic city with a little supply of quality shopping centers. The shopping center location in the middle of the residential district will make Driada a popular shopping destination. We are now in negotiations with electronic goods retailers and fashion brands."
"We hope that with Cushman & Wakefield's professional support, Driada will benefit with new international and Russian brands that are not currently present in Podolsk," says Vladimir Komissarov, General Manager, Driada OOO, the project's developer.
