Main tenants will include Cinema City, Alma, Mega Avans, Euro RTV AGD, the LPP clothing group, Intersport, KappAhl, Sephora, Douglas and many others. The region’s largest shopping mall is scheduled to open in October 2009.
Galeria Jurajska will be the biggest shopping and entertainment center in the region. It is the largest investment currently being developed by GTC in Poland.
Galeria Jurajska enjoys a highly visible location in the center of Częstochowa, on National Route 1, where 60,000 automobiles pass by every day.
Galeria Jurajska will offer 49,000 sq m of retail and entertainment area, a total of about 200 shops, service points, restaurants and cafés, and a Cinema City multiplex. Customers at the mall will have access to a five-level parking garage and outdoor parking, with a total capacity of 1,800 vehicles.
When Galeria Jurajska opens, Częstochowa will welcome new brands and retail chains, including Alma, with 3,400 sq m on the ground floor of the mall, Mega Avans (2,800 sq m), Euro RTV AGD (1,300 sq m), Intersport (1,200 sq m), KappAhl (750 sq m), Kakadu (360 sq m), Sephora (345 sq m) and Tag Heuer. Cosmetics chains as Rossmann (360 sq m) and Douglas (310 sq m) also joined to the list of tenants.
The LPP clothing group will be one of Galeria Jurajska’s largest tenants, offering Reserved, Cropp, Reserved Kids, Esotiq, Mohito and House shops with a total of 2,900 sq m.
Other shops at Galeria Jurajska will include such names as Ecco, Adidas, Nike and Chicco.
Further leases are expected to be signed in January with some of the largest international clothing store chains.
Concluded lease agreements and letters of intent are already in place for 80% of the area at Galeria Jurajska, and negotiations are being finalizing for the remaining space.
“The excellent location of Galeria Jurajska on one of the country’s busiest transit routes and a tenant mix featuring very strong brands will make this an extremely attractive shopping mall, drawing customers from a very large catchment area,” said Łukasz Leszczyński, who became General Manager of Galeria Jurajska this month. “We estimate that about 10 million customers will visit Galeria Jurajska every year.”
The international property firm Jones Lang LaSalle is the exclusive leasing agent for retail space at Galeria Jurajska.
