T1 Mall of Tallinn’s grand opening set for November 9
October 3, 2018
Estonia’s first new-generation shopping and entertainment centre T1 Mall of Tallinn opens to public on November 9.
AS Pro Kapital Grupp Chairman of the Board Paolo Michelozzi: “The global shopping mall industry is going through a seismic shift. T1 Mall of Tallinn follows the founding principles of new-generation shopping centres, inviting visitors into a spacious urban environment instead of a confined box and emphasizing moods and emotions to complement the usual shopping experience.
For Pro Kapital, this project is one of our largest in the Baltics and its successful completion is a good signal for our investors as well as anyone with the courage to think big and pursue innovation.“
AS Pro Kapital Grupp Management Board Member Allan Remmelkoor says that given the state of the construction market both in Estonia and globally, following the initial schedule which was set in more relaxed times has required strong efforts. “I therefore extend special thanks to all builders and designers, our main contractor Merko and subcontractors who have led and will continue to lead, for the coming weeks, the effort of hundreds of builders towards achieving T1 Mall of Tallinn’s maximum post-opening value for the city of Tallinn, its people, our guests and ultimately the whole country.”
After opening, T1 Mall of Tallinn will provide a multitude of news for Tallinners and visitors alike, including almost 60 completely new brands, food concepts and domains. “The final result is even more fabulous than we planned years ago,” said Allan Remmelkoor. “An urban park rising through three floors, a metropolitan terrace glasshouse for restaurants, outstanding sound and light solutions, plenty of new stores, obviously, the movie theatre with cutting-edge technology and last but not least, our first-in-Europe rooftop observation wheel will add excitement to Tallinn’s daily life and provide an extra incentive for tourists to visit the city.”
The mall at the beginning of Peterburi tee, one of Tallinn’s busiest roads, will boldly combine retail, entertainment and novel architectural concepts of space for the first time in Estonia. On almost 80,000 square metres, it will accommodate close to 150 shops, service businesses and experience venues, over 30 cafes and restaurants, street food areas and three spacious urban squares with indoor streets in between.
