The boutiques will be located in an open space, independently of each other and will be equipped with separate entrances.

In addition to separate boutiques with autonomous entrances, there will be a possibility to serve customers via drive-through for a grocery shop, contactless car wash. And many other establishments that are typical to shopping centers.

Stunning investment opportunity in the heart of Chisinau, secured by 1st rank mortgage.
Pretty much all roads in Moldova lead to its wine-and-food loving capital. The city of Chisinau is located in the Central region of Moldova and stands on seven hills in the form of a circle, which stretches along the river Byk — the right tributary of the Dniester.
The area of the city is about 120 km2, and the total municipality is 571.64 km2. In other words, It's about one-fourth as long as The Grand Canyon. The capital of Moldova is considered to be one of the greenest cities in Europe, as there are many parks in the city and the trees grow on almost every street. In addition, it is considered to be one of the less-urbanized European Capital cities.
The new modern shopping center "Albisoara" is located at Albisoara street 15, Chisinau. Thanks to its location on the main street of the city, it will provide a constant and stable flow of customers who are looking to satisfy their day-to-day needs. Besides, the minute's walk from the train station will ensure even greater attendance, not only from locals but also from the guests of the capital city.
Albisoara is a three-story complex that includes a wide range of different commercial enterprises that provide everything from food to various types of services. It will be a business home for several well-known chain boutiques, supermarket, where you can get just about everything, from home-made meat and cheese to electronics, clothes, and furniture. Also, food courts and restaurants, a bank, a cinema and many other entertainment venues. In other words, everything you need to spend the best time with your loved ones or just to enjoy the day on your own while shopping in the jungle of goods. On the top floor, there is a spacious terrace with a number of cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy beautiful views of the river and the city, refreshing drinks and delicious food.
Taking into account that the parking facility is the first and last impression people get from the shopping center, the visitors of Albisoara will be able to park their vehicles safely and conveniently on the large Parking lot in front of the center.
The shopping center is located in a fast-developing part of the Chisinau city center.
The tenants of Albisoara will be the top companies in Chisinau with an already established reputation, which will also have a positive impact on it. For example, one of them is Linella - a well-known Moldovan network of stores which in its 21 years of activity has managed to become the preferred network of supermarkets among consumers.
The total investment amount in the project is almost EUR 7,000,000, from which EUR 2,000,000 (28.6%) is the developer's skin in the game. The first development works have already started and the shopping center will be ready for commissioning next year.
Real Estate Market in Moldova
The real estate market in Chisinau accounts for about 70% of the entire Moldovan market. The beginning of the year 2020 was significant for the real estate market in the capital city. More apartments were sold in the first quarter than during 2019. This is due to an increase in the number of people who decide to move to the capital city or its suburbs.
According to the forecasts of the real estate agency, the demand for new housing will continue to increase this year, and the secondary market is expected to decline by 8-10%. The primary market will be characterized by a steady increase in prices. This is due to a reduction in the number of authorizations for the construction of new homes, as well as improved mortgage lending conditions.
For example, if five years ago banks provided loans at an interest rate of 12-14% per annum, at the end of 2019, the loan rate fell to 6-9%. On average, prices for apartments in new buildings are expected to grow by 8-10%, while in complexes commissioned, the price growth will be more pronounced – by 10-15%.
Taking into account all the above, the real estate market in Moldova, especially in the city of Chisinau and its surroundings, is on a stable, balanced and favorable development path, which has a positive impact on the developer and investors.
