Nivy mall in Bratislava, a new shopping centre developed by HB Reavis that also includes the city’s new international bus terminal, has welcomed almost 330,000 visitors in the first week following the centre’s opening on 30 September.

With 130,000 sqm of GLA, the multifunctional project is part of the Nivy zone in Bratislava, certified with BREEAM Communities at the Excellent level. It was developed by HB Reavis as a multifunctional modern city district totalling 23 hectares of land in a former (brownfield) area neighbouring Bratislava’s Old Town.

Almost 90% of the 70,000 sqm shopping centre is now taken, and the mix of stores includes a number of famous international brands. Inditex, one of the world’s largest fashion retailers, has taken 7,000 sqm of the site and the first time, it has all seven of its brands in one mall in Slovakia: Zara, Bershka, Pull&Bear, Massimo Dutti, Zara Home and Oysho, with the latter two stores being the first of their kind in the country. Furthermore, an almost comprehensive roster of LPP brands is now on-site too, including Reserved, Mohito and Sinsay. Regarding other brands, Nivy mall has become home to many flagship stores. In total, HB Reavis expects the shopping centre to attract 55,000 visitors each day.

The project includes a 3,000 sqm dining area and a 12,000 sqm green roof, divided into several recreational areas, including a 500 m running track, two workout zones, functional terraces and a playground.
