The opening ceremony was attended by a number of local politicians, businesspeople and celebrities, including Neinver Group’s founder and president Jose Maria Losantos del Campo, Katowice mayor Piotr Uszok, the city’s deputy mayor Krystyna Siejna and PKP board member Piotr Ciżkowicz.
The shopping mall’s tenants include retailers Zara, Euro RTV AGD, Rossmann, Promod, Mango, Bershka, Smyk, Deichmann and CCC. The entertainment floor will be anchored by the Multikino movie theater chain.
Galeria Katowicka is part of an integrated transport, retail and office complex that will comprise a railway station, an underground bus terminal and a class-A office building. The project is a joint venture between Neinver, Meyer Bergman and state-owned rail operator PKP.
The first part of the transport hub, a modern railway station, was launched last October. The adjoining bus station was completed in February this year. The entire investment took two and a half years to complete.
Neinver, which has been active in the Polish market since 2000, is known for projects such as the Factory outlet center in Warsaw’s Ursus district and the Galeria Malta shopping and entertainment center in Poznań.
