Atterbury Europe reveals plans for new mall in Limassol (pics)
08:02 - 13 October 2023
Atterbury Europe's innovative concept design for the new mall it is planning in Limassol is “well advanced in the process to obtain the required development rights”.
The company previously revealed its plans for a contemporary ‘Village Concept’ combining a careful balance of choices covering both luxury wants and daily needs.
Atterbury Europe, which already has significant presence in Cyprus (it owns Mall of Cyprus and the Shacolas Emporium Park), posted an interview on its website with Roux Gerber, head of developments for Atterbury Europe, who among other discussed the plans for the mall.
“Based on Atterbury Europe’s operational presence in Cyprus, the need for a retail facility in the coastal city of Limassol was identified,” Gerber said. “This demand was tested through a tenant-demand survey and further supported by a retail-demand study.”
Through an extensive and complicated process, he said, land was identified and secured with a mechanism to mitigate future risks relating to planning and access rights.
“The required studies in support of the concept were concluded and we are well advanced in the process to obtain the required development rights,” he added. “The concept design, although at an early stage, is innovative and was well accepted in the market.”
As Gerber pointed out, the direct involvement of the Atterbury team, including top management, “was instrumental from inception to arrive at this stage and we are actively coordinating and monitoring the process to the planned execution stage”.
The new mall will be built on Spyros Kyprianou Avenue in Mesa Gitonia, with construction work expected to launch next year.
