Our new location is sure to become a true destination for both locals and out-of-town visitors.”

Our project is an opportunity even for retailers that operate a large number of locations, because they come to serve a strong new community, which is constantly growing. In fact, another business objective for us is to develop our first residential project right next to the Colosseum Mall.”
