Ulemiste Keskus, a large shop­ping cen­ter sit­u­ated in the area of Tallinn Air­port, has de­cided to build an ex­ten­sion of 13,000 square me­ters by spring 2019, which will fea­ture a cin­ema, gym, as well as a num­ber of new restau­rants and stores, and will cost 35 mil­lion eu­ros.

“Af­ter the pre­vi­ous ex­ten­sion of the cen­ter we felt that some­thing is miss­ing. There is not enough en­ter­tain­ment. We are not as­pir­ing to reach the level of Hong Kong or Paris, but in the shop­ping cen­ters of the Baltic coun­tries, a cin­ema is the epit­ome of en­ter­tain­ment,” head of Ulemiste Keskus, Guido Par­nits, said.

Con­struc­tion work will start at the end of 2017 and work is ex­pected to be fin­ished by spring 2019. The present store area of 69,000 square me­ters of Ulemiste Keskus will in­crease by a fifth. The new ex­ten­sion of the build­ing will be built above the Rimi hy­per­mar­ket.
