    Ah why not have one in Larnaka too? The mentality of the Cypriot has changed greatly in the past decade or so, it is all about being up the neck in debt but as long is it allows me to wear my d&g shades, carry my fendi hand bag and drive my merc blah blah then everything is fine, alas you are judged greatly by the car you drive, what you wear etc etc shallow thinking….thank God not all Cypriots have succumbed to this way of thinking…

    Parking for 1100 cars,that will be a big pavement

  • Peter says:

    Yes we need another mall in Paphos.

    It will go well with the empty shops they are still building ‘For the days when things pick-up again’ and the Country can sell all the empty Villas to the Brits

  • Dave says:

    This island cannot afford what it has now,who is to pay for this with another increase in taxes I wonder?? We now have two Larnaca airports both built on Turkish-Cypriot land, the owner gets paid by the government so that he does not reclaim the land, what if he does reclaim will they just build another airport and raise taxes again??
