Romanian investor Gabriel “Puiu” Popoviciu bought the shopping center in June 2010 through the firm Shopping Center Holding. The mall project had been started by the Irish company Mivan, which stopped the construction after the firm managing the project went bankrupt.

Popoviciu paid EUR 30.5 million for the mall, and announced that he wanted to invest another EUR 20 million to complete it.

The shopping center currently has an occupancy rate of 65%, according to the sale announcement. It has a rentable area of almost 27,000 sqm.

Popoviciu is now building a new residential project in Bucharest through a Cyprus-based offshore company. Belvedere Residence will have 13 apartment blocks with over 1,500 apartments. (source:
