The new Nemo dolphinarium with a hotel is being built a land parcel of around 1 ha near Art Mall shopping and entertainment center located at 37, Zabolotnoho Street in Kyiv.
“Nemo dolphinarium will open at the parking area in six months. It moved. We sold 1 hectare of land and, not mobile, as previously it was at VDNG, but full-function dolphinarium and a hotel are being built… The facility was designed and construction is underway,” A Sky LLC Head and Director General of the Sky Mall shopping center Yulia Vanchenko said at the CP Round Table “Retail Property of Ukraine: the Market is on the Rise”.
She said that she took part in the launch and development of the Art Mall project.
Vanchenko said that the location of the Art Mall shopping and entertainment center is not good in terms of traffic: there are no houses, the subway nearby.
In this regard, as she said, a few years ago it was decided to change the concept of the shopping and entertainment center: the “children’s world” direction was chosen as the key one, and the facility increased its performance.
“The shopping gallery worked for three years, and we reformatted it into a new business focused on children, also new to Ukraine…” Vanchenko said, adding that Planet Toys, Kids Will, Kids Island, wow park, Reserved and LC Waikiki with large children’s departments, Luxoptika Kids are operating now.
“Now the Art Mall shopping center is improving the composition of neighbors around it, and thus the traffic of regular customers,” she said.
