“The last years we have witnessed the growth of demand in the area due to the large number of residential projects completed with more being constructed. This will only further increase the demand and Colosseum Mall is best placed to take advantage of it.”, added Mihai Dinu.

Alongside the current tenants including Carrefour, Leroy Merlin, Jysk, Altex, LC Waikiki, Sport Vision and Pepco, Colosseum has signed the Romanian multiplex cinema Happy Cinema and the biggest fitness operator in Romania World Class to take spaces above the food court of Colosseum Mall.

The mix of tenants, to include multiple fashion stores, entertainment and a new food court experience, will create a large, modern shopping destination in Bucharest. In addition, Colosseum Mall will offer the community a modern, social hub for shopping & leisure for the residents of the North – West of Bucharest and the surrounding areas.
