Attraction in the Krupp Belt: Kronenberg Center Essen

On the site of the so-called Krupp Belt in Essen, METRO PROPERTIES has built a modern retail park for local supplies. In addition to the anchor tenants of Real and Tedox many specialist retailers and shops offer visitors a variety of shopping experiences.

An internal mall area with an associated catering establishment connects the different areas. The immediately adjacent park is visually integrated into the roof of the new building as a tangible green landscape.
