Trade and Officer Premises  

Trade facilities are divided into several classes and the rent depends on the class of  a specific facility.

There are four classes:

  • Class А - a facility with its own land plot (trade centers, trade and Entertainment centers, malls, hypermalls, megamalls);
  • Class В - separate stores (supermarkets, self-service supermarkets);
  • Class С - ground floors of residential or office buildings (food stores, consumer goods stores, drug stores);
  • Class D - building extensions, trade pavilions (small retail outlets selling food/goods to neighborhood residents).

 

Class A Trade Facilities include the most prestigious premises, which have the best quality of finishing, premium engineering systems, automated utility systems and modern design. Such facilities are easily accessible. They are located in the central streets and avenues, near public transport stations. They include new buildings with premium finishing and design with an area of over 30,000 sq.m. Such facilities have an underground or a multi-level ground parking lot with a roofed passage to the building. Such property owners (normally there is only one owner) strive to attract anchor lessees and have their own concept for the building positioning in the market.

There is no such property in Kaluga Region.

In terms of their quality Class B Trade Facilities do not differ much from the previous group. They include buildings with total areas of less than 30,000 sq. m.
