Refurbishment and extension of the dominant retail centre in Minsk.
- Client: Aquabel
- 1.2 million sq ft development
- Masterplanning and placemaking project
Leslie Jones Architecture was commissioned to create concept designs and a masterplan for Aquabel’s Expobel shopping and entertainment centre in Minsk. The aim of the project is to help the scheme realise its full potential as the region’s dominant retail and leisure offer.
Located on the ring road north of the capital city, the centre is perfectly situated to grow its catchment through improvement works to the existing offer and a major extension, which will quadruple the size of Expobel to 1.2million sq ft.
Leslie Jones’ teams’ extensive international experience means they are adept at understanding local needs and applying them to the global retail market. The team have therefore injected personality into the project through an innovative approach that will appeal both to local people and international brands.
