Colosseum Centre, one of the most important shopping destinations in Northwest Bucharest, is advancing the construction works to open a modern shopping mall in 2020. Starting with the opening, Colosseum Centre will reach approximately 54,500 sqm of gross leasable area, becoming the 2ndlargest shopping & leisure destination in the 1st District of Bucharest. The new mall will accommodate Happy Cinema multiplex with 7 premium halls with high technology, World Class fitness centre, multi-brand food court, fashion and accessories stores like CCC, New Yorker, Colin’s, Noriel, DM Drogerie Markt, Gregory’s, Diverta and many more. This first stage of expansion also includes 1 500 sq.m. offices located on 2ndfloor above the fitness centre and the food-court. Opened since 2011, Colosseum has currently 100% occupancy rate and is accommodating top retailers such as Carrefour, the largest Leroy Merlin DYI store in Romania, Altex, Jysk, Pepco, LC Waikiki and Sport Vision. Considering its strategic location and the continuous development of households in this area of Bucharest, the expansion of Colosseum was long expected by the community.

We are working with professional partners and we are pleased about the current leasing status and the timing of the construction works”.
