With more than four million visitors each year, City Point Bochum is a firmly established staple in Bochum,” says Uwe Matthias, Centre Manager at Prelios Immobilien Management. “We will be implementing a number of measures at City Point Bochum and already started converting the third floor for new forms of use at the beginning of January.
