Linstow expanded Ülemiste shopping centre by 13,000 sq m of shopping and entertainment space, with most of the additional floorspace taken up by entertainment and food and beverage services.

We are pleased to announce that everything went to plan, and we have been able to open our doors for our customers,” said Linstow Center Management CEO Frode Gronvold. “Linstow Center Management is very proud with the opening of a state-of-the-art and future-oriented shopping and entertainment centre.

Ülemiste shopping centre was developed by Linstow Center Management (LCM) and anchored by the most modern cinema in Europe and the O’Learys entertainment centre. The architects behind the third expansion of the Ülemiste Centre were AMB International (Norway) and Novarc Group AS (Estonia), with Priit Põldme and Reet Sapp from Joonprojekt being responsible for interior architecture. A 235-space underground car park was added to ensure greater convenience for shoppers. The expansion cost EUR 36 million, and the result is that Estonia’s largest shopping and entertainment centre will now be operating across 125,000 sq m.
