Work on the 1,250 sqm centre started in April near a Biedronka discount store. “The park in Opatów is an extremely important project for us and not only because it is our first born. The project was difficult but we managed to get open it through the hard work of the entire team both on site and in Gdańsk. And this is just the beginning of our journey because we are planning more centres,” remarks Michał Nowak, the CEO of EDS Retail Park. Pepco will occupy 448 sqm, Rossmann will take up 367 sqm and Media Expert has leased 354 sqm.

The park was developed in partnership with Higasa Properties financed by the Higasa club which gathers together funds from small private investors. Together EDS and Higasa are also developing EDS Park Dębrzno (1,400 sqm), EDS Park Legnica (1,100 sqm) and a 3,300-sqm centre in Reda.
