On 9th of February 2012 Immofinanz Group received the “Extended / Refurbished Project of the Year“ award from EuropaProperty for the second phase of Silesia City Center.
The CEE Retail Real Estate Awards were presented this year for the fourth time by the portal EuropaProperty. Well-known retailers and investors from nine countries were honoured in over 20 categories.
This extension, which was developed by the Group, opened in October 2011 and has since enjoyed great popularity, with 300 000 visitors counted in the first week alone. With 86 000 sq. meters of selling space and a total of 310 shops, Silesia City Center is one of the top five shopping centers in Poland.
The facility, which originally provided space for 250 shops on 66 000 sq. meters, was enlarged by additional 20 000 sq. meters with space for an additional 60 stores. “The extension of Silesia City Center proved to be an excellent decision: high visitor frequency, the successful completion of refinancing in November – and now this award“ – commented Eduard Zehetner, Chief Executive Officer of Immofinanz Group.
