Today, the biggest universal problem for the regions of Kazakhstan in the commercial real estate market is the lack of modern shopping and entertainment centers. The excess of demand over supply is primarily due to the development of international networks in Kazakhstan. Shymkent is in dire need of a shopping center with an area of 100,000 m².
To solve the problem of lack of space in Shymkent, it is necessary to build 1 shopping center of city and 3 shopping centers of regional significance.
As of today, the city's per capita space amounts to 116 square meters per 1000 inhabitants. However, the adequate standard is considered to be 800 square meters per 1000 inhabitants.
