Belgrade will get another modern shopping centre in the spring of 2020, located at the corner of Vojislav Ilic and Mis Irbijeva streets in the Zvezdara quarter.
MPC Properties and Atterbury Europe have launched this joint project yesterday with the official laying of the foundation where the new building will be built. The building will span 130,000 square metres and have more than 43,000 square metres of retail space. The investment is valued at EUR 110 million.
The new shopping mall will be everything that is required from a modern retail facility. In the immediate vicinity, only 15 minutes walk, there is a neighbourhood with more than 350,000 residents.
Aside from its location, the shopping centre will be different from its competitors’ thanks to an innovative concept that follows the latest trends in retail, with more open spaces, plenty of natural light and greenery in order to provide best shopping and recreation experience. The international architecture firm, Chapman Taylor, based in Düsseldorf, has designed the building.

“By analyzing the market and following global trends, we have assessed that it is the right time to build a modern shopping centre in the location that has no shopping malls at. In this shopping centre, we are going to have 150 international and regional brands, from fashion to sport, cinemas, supermarkets, restaurants and coffee shops”, Ingo Nissen, the director of MPC Properties.
He also underlined that 605 premises inside the mall have already been leased out which speaks volumes about how attractive this location is. He also thanked the city government for exceptional cooperation and for promptly issuing all necessary permits.
“Being one of the investors, we, at Atterbury Europe, are extremely proud that the construction of this modern shopping centre has begun, together with MPC Properties. Belgrade is a very dynamic city with great potential for progress and it is our privilege to be a part of this exceptional project that will transform the abandoned industrial location into a place for people to relax and enjoy themselves”, said Raoul de Villiers, Head of Developments at Atterbury Europe.
The ceremony was also attended by Deputy Mayor of Belgrade Goran Vesic who said that the project was another important validation that Belgrade was an attractive destination, adding that the local government would continue supporting investors.
The new shopping centre is just one of many investment projects of MPC Properties that owns the biggest shopping centres in the region – the USCE Shopping Centre, Mercator Centre Belgrade, Usce Tower I and II and Navigator Business Centre I and II.
The new shopping centre in Zvezdara will be managed by Confluence Property Management.
