In 2011 Ukrsibbank in conjunction with the property owners hired DTZ to provide a comprehensive report on the management and leasing of Megamall Shopping and Entertainment Centre in Vinnitsa. The DTZ report made a number of practical suggestions and observation regarding management, tenants and leasing levels. Subsequent to the initial report DTZ were hired to provide an ongoing monitoring and reporting role at the Centre.
DTZ have been instrumental in the subsequent progress made in the marketing policy of Megamall following the implementation of the suggestions and observations made by DTZ in the initial report. DTZ advised on major changes of layout of the second floor, the subsequent leasing of large areas to anchor tenants, and the replacement of other tenants. These changes have had a positive impact on centre's operating income and reduced vacancy levels.
The DTZ team, on this project, has been proven to have practical in-depth knowledge in terms of leasing consultancy, space planning and property management, strong professional skills and principles - coupled with flexibility and readiness to offer customized solutions in non-standard situations.
Ukrsibbank is of a high opinion of the services that DTZ provided and appreciates the evident improvement of the centre that confirms DTZ's leadership in the sector.
We are pleased to confirm that DTZ has provided practical advice and recommendations backed up with thorough research and market testing that led us throughout the complete decision process. We consider that they have provided a high quality service in a timely manner which, has genuinely enabled us to see ways to add value to our property.
DTZ introduced Multi Corporation to the Forum Lviv development opportunity in 2007 and, remained involved throughout our process of negotiating the joint venture agreement with our local partner, the attraction of a third joint venture partner in 2012 as well as providing co-exclusive leasing services. We have come to value the advice and local knowledge of DTZ as well as their strong leasing skills which together have been so important in the successful delivery of our scheme.
DTZ have a collaborative approach and are forward sighted, prompt and responsive. We chose them as out of all those we interviewed, DTZ came across as the most credible. They have an excellent and committed team, who are key to the ongoing success of the shopping centre. They have worked well in trying to achieve our aims; I would use them again.
We chose DTZ because of their long-term presence on the Ukrainian market, strong understanding of the retail market and their access to their international leasing network. We cooperate with DTZ in various aspects of our business in several markets.
DTZ provided an excellent service to several EBRD projects, both in terms of quality and timing.
DTZ have represented the interests of Gooioord B.V. throughout the portfolio assembly, management, leasing and sale process. Their unique insights to the Kyiv real estate market enabled efficient asset management for the investors to optimize returns and ultimate exit from this portfolio at the peak of the market.
We are very pleased with the terms DTZ secured for us that will enable us to further invest in our business platform in Ukraine. DTZ proved to be absolutely dedicated to representing our interests, providing outstanding professionalism and expertise that were extremely helpful for negotiations with our current landlord.
We hold the opinions of DTZ in high esteem and involve their teams in all stages of our projects, from initial planning to completion. Working with DTZ is a fulfilling experience, with their reliable information and support, in-depth analysis and many successful deals.
DTZ deserve a lot of credit for their incredible proactivity, in-depth knowledge of the environment, strong professional skills and principles - coupled with flexibility and readiness to offer customized solutions in non-standard situations. These qualities have worked efficiently for us despite the global downturn.
DTZ Ukraine has provided top-notch services which met international companies’ expectations. We are very grateful DTZ Ukraine for representing our interests and we recommend other multinational companies refer to DTZ as a leading international real estate consultant.
Your support during Astellas last move from old to new office could not be overestimate. Times were different and Kiev was very short of decent office space. I was rather desperate, as we had a very short notice to find our new place for work. Dedication and professionalism of your company delivered was really exceptional. This tough time for us I recall with pleasure mainly because of our cooperation. Facts cannot be denied – we stayed in the office premises - you find for us - for five years, now we are moving to the bigger space but in the frame of the same landlord. It simply proves that we are happy with the product you prepare for our company. I am proud to recommend your services to any “homeless” company.
DTZ conducted negotiations with the Landlord, on Lego’s behalf to ensure that agreement on the best commercial terms was reached…We recommend that other occupiers should refer to DTZ for finding a solution for their occupational needs.
