After the successful opening of two retail parks in 2017, the UK-based property investor, developer and manager Poseidon Group will continue to expand its Capitol Park network in Serbia during 2018 to reach a total of ten retail park projects by 2020.
This spring Capitol Park Sabac, which opened in 2014, will welcome fashion retailer H&M and another three brands will enter phase two of the development. This will confirm Capitol Park’s retail leadership in the Macva region.
By the end of 2018 Belgrade’s Capitol Park Rakovica will open a further 2,150 sqm providing around 60 new jobs for local residents.
In addition to the 2017 openings in Sombor and Rakovica, Poseidon plans to expand its network through south and eastern Serbia including Leskovac and Zajecar with a total EUR 15 million projected investment and around 240 new jobs. Capitol Park Leskovac will open by the end of this year with around 6,500 sqm of retail space in the first phase and a tenant mix that fits local market needs including a hypermarket, fashion, footwear and sports equipment. The beginning of 2019 will see the opening of Capitol Park Zajecar located in the city center with 9,000 sqm of retail space.
Poseidon Group Corporate Affairs director James Gunn emphasised the retail leadership of the Capitol Park brand portfolio on a regional level: “Over the past three years, three retail parks were successfully opened to employ over 800 people. With our Capitol Park brand, Poseidon Property will strive to become a retail leader in the region with a plan to expand to a total of ten retail parks in Serbia and acquisitions in other markets. “
Further information on the next stages of construction will be announced in mid-2018.
