author: Rasul Hamidullin

Ufa takes the leading positions in the Volga Federal District on investment appeal in the trading real estate development. Such data are given by the consulting company "Welhome" which has analysed the market of the trading real estate in the Volga Federal District. Analysts also assert that in the capital of Bashkortostan, along with Perm, at sufficient population and rather high standard of wages availability of quality shopping malls is at rather low level.

Within the framework of the research the information on quality shopping malls was used. This term implies shopping malls with the rented area from 5000 square metres, having an effective concept. As a part of such objects one or several large anchor tenants are presented, and also a big trading gallery.

The greatest amount of trading areas characterises Samara and Kazan: 381 and 331 square metres per 1000 inhabitants accordingly. The least trading area is in Saratov and Ulyanovsk – 70 and 69 square metres per 1000 people.
