Postimaja in central Tallinn that will open doors as a shopping mall tomorrow will further increase the amount of floor space in shopping centres in Tallinn, writes Postimees.

When new planned retail developments are completed, Tallinn will have almost 2 square metres of shopping floor space per inhabitant.

According to the latest data of European shopping centres, Estonia is already fourth in Europe in terms of shopping space per inhabitant, the first three being Norway, Luxembourg and Sweden.

One of the new retail developments that are expected to open doors in the coming years is Ülemiste Centre’s expansion that will increase the mall’s floor space to 92,000 sqm.

Panorama City shopping mall that is being developed in Lasnamäe will have 57,000 sqm of floor space, while Pro Kapital plans to develop a shopping centre at the new Ülemiste traffic junction with 55,000 sqm of floor space.
