The developer is focusing particularly on international brands and quality. A varied offering of fashion, shoes, jewellery, accessories, consumer electronics, groceries and much more is planned. The anchor tenant is P&C. The fashion store will be bringing its metropolitan store concept to Centrum-Galerie with a retail area of 12,000 m². Karstadt, the old Centrum store's previous user, will return to the location with a large sports store. Together with the varied gastronomic offering, this will significantly enhance the Prager Straße as a residential, shopping and leisure location.
