Tbilisi Sea Plaza trading center is located in the eastern suburbs of Tbilisi City, near the Tbilisi Sea.

I first heard about this "project" back in 2013 or something, and actually tried to visit it already in 2015, without luck. Turns out this place has been opened for the public just since the end of 2016. Despite been opened for public for a while already this place is not close as popular as Tbilisi Mall or East Point shopping malls located in the suburbs of Tbilisi. I believe the reason is the missing anchor tenant, some large food store

It was at the end of December 2018, we were wandering around Tbilisi in our new Volkswagen Tuareg car, and decided to locate this place finally.

And we succeeded. Unfortunately, at the end of 2018, this place looked more like a ghost town, though after a couple of minutes of wandering here we did find some actual trading inside the main building.

Despite it was a pre-Christmas time we visited this place, there were no people outside, and just a few visitors and dozen of merchants inside the main building. 

Market and commercial facilities include: market zone, processing zone, custom bond zone, warehouse zone, commercial pedestrian streets and many other businesses, which will serve as a motive power for the main body of the commercial area and its economic development. At present, merchants from China, Turkey and Dubai (UAE) have signed agreements to enter Hualing International Trade Center and have already started operating. Their goods include: garments, bags and suitcases, food, furniture, construction materials, decorative lighting, children toys, sanitary products, vehicle spare parts. “Tbilisi Sea Plaza” will also feature catering, banks and other facilities

One I know for sure, this place is great for architecture photography.

Now, these warehouses actually are interesting for those one looking to set up a startup here in Georgia. Could be a good place for internet shops at least.
