The premiere of Metropolis Mall

On July 29, according to information from the column, the Metropolis Mall in Larnaca, the first shopping center of the city, is scheduled to open its gates.

As we learn, all construction works and landscaping within the mall have been completed, while all road works undertaken by the company are in the process of completion, with the construction of new roads and two new roundabouts on both sides of the mall.

The new shopping center has 135 stores, a cinema, 6 restaurants, 8 fast food and 3 cafes and outdoor areas, specialty stores, and 1530 parking spaces. It will also have a playground, a children’s park and a bike path.

Among the companies that locked their presence in the mall are the Symeonidis group for the Marks & Spencer stores and Costa Coffee, the Mallouppas & Papacostas group, which owns the Stradivarius, Mango, Intimissimi, Calzedonia and Tezenis stores. The agreement with the stores Beauty Line, Holland & Barrett, Mac and Inglot by Kostas Papaellinas was also closed. Alpha Mega will also be present and will take over the Mall supermarket. There is also an agreement with Zorpa bakeries for Coffee Berry cafe, but also with Starbucks, while the PHC group and McDonalds will have several restaurants.

However, it will be interesting to see how much the Metropolis Mall and the other stores in the city of Larnaca will affect the other shopping centers.

New cyber-attacks

Cyber-attacks target employees who, once the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, return to their offices.

In particular, with the lifting of the COVID-19 restrictions and the return of employees to their offices after months of remote work, hackers try to exploit the data exchange by carrying out phishing emails.

The new e-fishing campaign aims to intercept employees' credentials. In particular, employees receive an email that is supposed to come from management, welcoming them back to the offices, as well as an information link about changes in the organization's business activities. Clicking on the link redirects to another web page and the user will have to enter their passwords to see the updates, resulting in their being intercepted. So you should be generally suspicious and pay close attention to emails. You should also have anti-spyware and anti-virus software installed and updated on your computer on a daily basis. Beware, then, of electronic scams. Anyone can get it.

Deal for a tower in Nicosia

APS announced the completion of the sale of one of the large properties it had in its portfolio to be managed. It is a station tower in Nicosia, known as Jacovides Tower, which is located on a main road in Agioi Omologites, Nicosia.

This seven-storey building has a total covered area of 2356 sq.m. The total area for the two basements is 2800 sq.m. and the ground floor is 740 sq.m. The first floor is 965 sq.m., the second 750 sq.m., the third 466 sq.m. and the other floors of about 300 sq.m. each one. The common areas with a total area of 877 sq.m. come to embrace and complete the image of the building. Recently, maintenance improvements have been made to the building and two of the floors have been completely renovated. An important role in the completion of the deal, which was close to € 6 million, was the high return that the investment of the new owner will have, as the tenants housed in the building are mainly companies and government authorities.

Development with amphitheater in Kiti

The study concerning the landscaping of the river Tremithos in Kiti was submitted to the environmental authority.

According to the study, the length of the regeneration will be about 1,500 m, while its width ranges from 25 m to 80 m. The project will include the construction of a sidewalk along the river, the construction of a metal footbridge and the construction of an amphitheater with ancillary infrastructure (dressing rooms, toilets and other related).

In addition, it will be covered with river cobblestones on the existing footbridge, the existing irrigation buildings and next to the existing remains of an ancient bridge.

The project will be constructed within the administrative boundaries of the community of Kiti and access to the project will be through the local road network of the community of Kiti. However, based on the information we have, it is a project that is considered of utmost importance in the community of Kiti and there is optimism that it will eventually be implemented.

Cypriots in June, foreigners in July

The tourism industry of Cyprus is expected to start in July, as for the time being there are neither substantial bookings nor mass arrivals. However, the fact that the epidemiological picture of the country has significantly improved, makes the competent bodies optimistic that Cyprus will soon be included in the green category of countries where it expects a significant arrival of tourists. This week, the Deputy Minister of Tourism Savvas Perdios made a lightning trip to Great Britain and Moscow, to warm the interest of travelers and take advantage of the charter flights. The key dates for the entry of Cyprus in the UK green list are June 7 and June 28, when the new review of the lists will be decided. The Cypriots, however, significantly support the hotel industry in June, as the plan is in force with the subsidized holidays and especially during the three days of the flood the occupancy will reach 100%.

Change in Deloitte Cyprus

Deloitte Cyprus announces that, as of June 1, Pieris Markou is the new Chief Executive Officer, as he succeeds Christis Christoforou, who has led Deloitte for the last 20 years.

The change of leadership at the level of CEO took place after the decision of Mr. Christoforos to leave and after the legal procedures and consultations with the partners of Deloitte Cyprus.

Pieris Markou, however, undertakes in a period with many peculiarities and challenges for the world market, as a result of the great effects of the pandemic. The new CEO is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation and the board of the Nicosia Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He is also vice president of the Cyprus Association of Chartered Accountants (SELK). He is one of the most renowned Cypriot tax advisors and in recent years has been actively involved in shaping the tax policy of the respective governments. We are sure that, as in the case of Christos Christoforos, Deloitte will continue to be in good hands.
