The real estate company Opus Land Development, which has developed the residential compound Cosmopolis located in the north of Bucharest, will invest some €20 million this year to build 500 new apartments and villas within the project.
It will also build a strip mall with a rentable area of 3,500 sqm. The future shopping centre will include a Carrefour supermarket, a miniPrix discount fashion store and three restaurants.
