A new gastronomic space can be developed in Maly Prospect in the Petrograd Side of St. Petersburg.
It will occupy the premises of the former Primosky market that now house a supermarket and an interior design salon. It is planned to open some 30 restaurants and cafes instead. They will be accommodated on two floors with more democratic places on the ground floor and more expensive restaurants on the upper floor.
The author of the project is Andrey Pertsev, a major St. Petersburg restaurateur. Together with his partners, he intends to invest at least 100 million rubles (1.35 million dollars) into the food hall project. Experts believe the actual figure could be 1.5-2 times larger. But the project is expected to pay back due to the favourable location.
Alexander Kiriyatskikh, development projects director, explains: ‘The locations is ideal, several potential food hall operators were competing for it. It is the only food hall in the Petrograd Side to serve some 70 thousand people.’
The first food halls opened in St. Petersburg in 2019 in the Vasileostrovsky Market, City Mall and Gallery. Next year, one more food hall project is expected to be launched, in Nevsky Center shopping mall.
