Neinver showcases Katowice project at MAPIC

Neinver is attending the International Market for Retail Real Estate (MAPIC) from 17-19 November in the French city of Cannes. The company will showcase its 2010-2012 projects, consisting of 166 800 sq. meters in eight new retail centers that the company is developing around Europe. The presentation includes the project of development of the new Railway Station and Galeria Katowicka at Szewczyka Sq.

According to the company, Neinver’s main objectives is to strengthen its foothold and continue growing in the markets where it operates. It currently has 5 new retail schemes underway in Spain, Poland and Portugal.

As can be read in the press statement, one of Neinver’s most ambitious and unique projects in Europe, and of course in Poland, consists of rebuilding the Katowice Railway Station, where the aim is to construct a major shopping and office complex. Katowice is one of the most important industrial and urban hubs in Poland. However, its location is not the only factor that makes this scheme so special. In the case of the office complex, for example, state-of-the-art architectural solutions, new materials and building techniques are being implemented, thereby delivering an innovative design. The complex will deliver almost 200 000 sq. meters of usable area, the new shopping center will cover a GLA of 53 000 sq. meters, accommodating 250 stores. This project is scheduled to be finished by winter 2012.

The Katowice project was also presented by Neinver at MAPIC in 2009.

Neinver has decided to take part in MAPIC, one of the most important trade fairs in the sector, seeking to boost further its stronghold in the European retail sector.

During 3 days of MAPIC, professionals from the retail real estate industry – such as retailers, retail outlets and property developers, local and regional authorities, and investors – gather to promote their projects and know-how, to discover current and future developments, to meet with decision-makers and update their knowledge on the latest trends in the market.
