- The shopping mall of Serbian company "Delta” in Ljubljana will be opened prior to the beginning of year 2011. Expansion of "Maxi" stores in Slovenia is also in the pipeline - said the CEO of "Delta Real Estate”, Dejan Racić.
- It is possible that we will implement few more projects in field of retail trade in Slovenia - said Racić and added that that would mainly be the expansion of "Delta Maxi" within independent facilities, so-called retail parks.
Racić said that the stadium and the hall of Sports park "Stožice" would be finished prior to June 30, 2010, and that the sports park would include shopping mall "Delta planet" in which "Delta" would invest 242.5m EUR.
According to his words, the first "Maxi" supermarket in Slovenia will be opened within shopping mall "Delta planet".
As Racić explained, the shopping mall should be finished at the end of year 2010 or at the beginning of year 2011.
- The space will be leased to renters, some of which are part of "Delta holding", like "Maxi" and the stores represented by "Delta sport", and it is assumed that big number of brands in "Delta" center will appear in Slovenia for the first time - said he.
"Delta" enters Slovenian market as a partner of consortium "Grep", which won on the tender for construction of stadium and sports hall, announced by the city of Ljubljana, and gained right to build a shopping mall within that complex.
The contract on construction of "Delta planet" was signed by "Delta real estate" and Slovenian "Grep" on August 5 in Ljubljana.
Racić said that "Delta" planned to have its facilities built at more than 3m square meters in the countries of the region within the next four or five years, while the projected investments amounted to 3 billion EUR. "Delta" plans to invest in all countries of former Yugoslavia and Albania and it negotiates about possible building locations, but, as Racić explained, there are no concrete projects yet.
