A second mall

November 2009 saw the start of the building work for the long-planned expansion of the Main-Taunus-Zentrum in Sulzbach near Frankfurt, following a number of postponements due to a legal dispute between the district and city. This means that the MTZ, which last year celebrated its 45th anniversary, will be expanded by around 12,000 m² of retail space.

Following completion in the autumn of 2011, the traditional shopping center will offer around 91,000 m² of leasable space and roughly 180 shops, service providers and catering outlets in total. In order to achieve this, it will be necessary to build over the north car park between Bundesstraße 8, the existing car park and the center. A mall will be created on the ground floor which will transform the existing row of shops into a circular route. The two floors above will be used as parking levels. Prior to this a new four-storey car park will be built on the southern side of the center. In future, visitors will therefore have a total of 4,500 free parking spaces at their disposal.

With the 70 or so new shops the emphasis will be placed mainly on the area of fashion. In response to many customers’ wishes, the catering facilities in particular will also be expanded. Overall, the idea is for retailers from the region to be approached more intensively to become tenants for the new, somewhat smaller spaces.

The expansion of the Main-Taunus-Zentrum will allow it to further develop its strong position in the region. It is already one of the most highly frequented retail locations in Germany.

In total around €72 million is being invested in the expansion, with Deutsche EuroShop’s share amounting to approximately €31 million.
