In mid-November, construction of a shopping mall in Zvezdara, the fourth-ranked at
our list started. Unlike the shopping mall of Israeli "Aviv
Arlon" in Pancevo, which as the
previous ones at our list was designed as a retial park, i.e. outdoor complex,
the facility in Zvezdara will have the classic retail park complex. They have
already signed contracts with 80% of renters and visitors will be able to buy
here in the winter 2015 or in the spring 2016.

in Serbia. In early October, Memorandum was signed between Swedish company and
Serbian ministry of construction after which it was confirmed that IKEA is
planning to invest some EUR 300 m into construction of five
department stores in Serbia.
The same interest was for "Lidl"
shops. Bu the end of 2014,
according to the annoucemnte, the first retail shops should have been opened
but even though 10 lots were bought for that in Serbia, it has not happen yet. German
trading company will build in Serbia the main distribution center as ell and
the contract on purchase of construction land was signed with the Stara Pazova municipality..

The construction of another distribution center in Stara Pazova, this time of Delta DMD, is ninth-ranked. Plans of Novi Sad-based Univerexport which only in November last year opened 8 retail shops in Vojvodina follow. There have been skirmishes that Novi Sad-based company agreed to take over Kikinda-based Angroprometa and Zrenjanin-based Lurdi, both owned by German company which will increase Univerexport’s retail network for 40 shops.
It has been speculated whether Delta holding will build a large shopping mall in Autokomanda, and the company prepared the B plan in case they do not het all the permits and instead of construction shopping malls in Belgrade to build two shopping malls in the countries in the region. It is enough to rank it 11 at our ranking list which ends with the story about the retail park as we started.
