Renovated Shopmark mall opens


District XIX shopping center Shopmark, formerly Europark, once again opened its doors to the public yesterday after six months of intensive renovations. This completes the first shopping mall reconstruction in Hungary where the whole building was closed down for an extended period of time, according to a press release on Shopmark始s official website.

The 24,000 sqm mall is owned by investment fund Magyar Posta Takar茅k Ingatlan Befektet茅si Alap, under the control of holding company Di贸fa Alapkezel艖 Zrt. K脡SZ 脡p铆t艖 Zrt. was responsible for the reconstruction works.

During the renovation of the more than 20-year-old building, the facade, machinery, space organization and interior design were all changed. According to the press release, Shopmark aimed at opening a community centric, modernized, and accessible building with the smallest ecological footprint possible.

"It fills me with pride that once again we can welcome Shopmark始s customers in a modern environment with a renewed appearance," says Bal谩zs Czifra, Di贸fa Alapkezel艖始s real estate investment director.

"This is a huge milestone in the 1997 completed building始s history. In the past few months we strived for reopening the mall, in tight cooperation with our tenants, where we can provide the quality and offers for every age group which satisfies today始s needs."

Most of Shopmark始s almost 90 shops are already open for business, with the remaining few expected to open within the next month.
