Following recent leasing deals, Multi Ukraine leasing team reports that Forum Lviv is 99% leased. The shopping centre covers an area of 69,000 m2 with retail, restaurants, entertainment, a cinema and an underground car park.
Forum Lviv is located in the heart of Lviv’s city centre, just a short walk from the National Opera Theatre and Lviv’s famous Market Square. Multi and Lviv celebrated the grand Opening of Forum Lviv in September 2015.
Multi Ukraine attracted over 30 new brands to Forum Lviv shopping centre. Among others retailers like MANGO, LC Waikiki, Lacoste, Intimissimi, Calzedonia, Love Republic, Befree, Massimo Dutti, Oysho and Timberland opened their first stores in the region in Forum Lviv. Moreover, brands which are already present in Lviv, have opened their stores in new upgraded concepts. One can check the unique Alice in the Wonderland concept of Silpo and Mr Big House concept of Budynok Igrashok.
“We put a special focus on providing a diversified brands portfolio to our shoppers. All retailers across our portfolio have a strong reputation on a national and international level, which is an important aspect in Lviv where customers are used to better service and are more demanding and quality minded. Forum Lviv has proven to be a top-fashion destination in Lviv and a new meeting point for Lviv citizens. This makes it a must-join project among the retailers,” comments Marina Nesterenko, Forum Lviv Center Manager.
Forum Lviv is Multi’s flagship shopping centre in Ukraine. Since the opening, the shopping centre has already received recognition as the best shopping centre in Central Eastern Europe at the 13th annual Central & Eastern Europe Real Estate Quality Awards (Warsaw); the Best Large Shopping Center of 2015 at CEE Retail Awards (Warsaw); Retail Project of the Year at the 5th annual CEE Investment and Green Building Awards (Warsaw); Retail Project of the Year at the Eastern Europe and Asia Real Estate Project Awards; and has won a Silver Award at the ICSC Solal Marketing Awards.
Multi will be announcing additional store openings at Forum Lviv in the near future.
Forum Lviv innovates
Forum Lviv is currently introducing a range of add-on services that will make the shopping centre not only the top fashion shopping destination in Lviv, but also give for Lviv customers a truly unique shopping experience. Recent additional services include Ukraine’s first shopping centre gift card, a public transport schedule display and a range of event tools, all of which are helping to strengthen Forum Lviv’s image as the true new meeting place in this historical city. These new services have generated a great deal of positive feedback from both retailers and customers, not least of which are the centre’s impressive footfall indicators and the high turnovers enjoyed by resident retailers.
