Opening of a 50 million Euro shopping centre in Torun a major success

Meinl European Land celebrates the grand opening of a shopping centre in Torun in Poland, with a total letable area of approximately 35,000sqm yesterday. Torun is a regional hub of more than 200,000 inhabitants in the North-Western part of Poland, 250km from Warsaw. Total Development costs for the shopping centre came up to around 50 million Euro. The centre, called "Galeria Copernicus", is leased on a long-term contract basis to the German Metro group with a "Mediamarkt" electronics market and a "Real" hypermarket as anchor tenants. An additional 80 attractive shops, which are leased to well known brands such as Douglas or Deichmann, complete the tenant mixture. On the opening day a huge growd of customers made their first shopping in the fully let centre. Leading members of Torun’s administration expressed their view that they consider the Galeria Copernicus as a "real enrichment" for the city.
