ECE Shopping Center
As part of a major refurbishment, City Passage, which opened in 1977, was converted into a modern and attractive shopping center with around 110 shops covering about 26,000 m² of retail space. With a new appearance, the center also received a new name: Loom Bielefeld. The location is perfectly integrated into Bielefeld’s city center and connects the city’s central shopping avenues. The showpiece of the 135 million euro project is an elliptical plaza, which is straddled by an impressive glass dome.Our shopping centers at a glance
In the Italian tourist destination of Verona, we constructed the city’s first shopping center. Adigeo offers its visitors an attractive mix of Italian retail concepts and international retailers, many of whom are new to the region. In 2019, ICSC awarded Adigeo the “European Shopping Center Award” for being best new development. It was also the first shopping center in Italy to receive platinum “LEED certification” because of its performance in regard to sustainability in various areas.Our shopping centers at a glance
Skyline Plaza Frankfurt
Skyline Plaza, the heart of the new Europaviertel, is the urban center between Messe Frankfurt, the financial district, and the city. Integrated into its urban surroundings via its layout, Skyline Plaza gives the architectural impression of a beating heart. The slats of the outer façade change their color according to light and perspective. At night, the exterior is illuminated and pulses at constant intervals. Skyline Plaza offers a vital combination, bringing together the shopping center, gastronomy, and sports and wellness facilities.Our shopping centers at a glance
Zielone Arkady Bydgoszcz
Zielone Arkady is our largest project in Poland and the largest shopping center in Bydgoszcz and the region. In addition to numerous internationally known shops and labels, it is also quite architecturally impressive. The most distinctive point is the west entrance: Visitors enter the building through an entrance hall that is almost 30 meters high and has the form of a crystal rising into the sky. Another architectural highlight is the atrium at the south entrance of Zielone Arkady. Its theater-like structure with boxes and grandstands on three levels creates a large space for activity on the ground floor. Clear the stage for center events and performances!Our shopping centers at a glance
Potsdamer Platz Arkaden Berlin

Successful Shopping Partnerships
“As a company based in Frankfurt, Germany, we are particularly pleased that we were able to see the potential of the entire Palais Quartier complex, including MyZeil Shopping Center, when we acquired it in 2014 and that we have now realized this potential together with ECE. This is what modern, experience-oriented shopping centers look like.”
“Union Investment and ECE can look back on more than 15 years of partnership in the management of shopping centers. ECE currently manages a portfolio for Union Investment consisting of seven assets with a volume of approximately €1.5 billion. Even in challenging times, our partnership with ECE has proven to be reliable and solid. This creates a good foundation for future cooperation.”
“The customers’ expectations regarding a shopping center are increasing. At the same time, however, it is difficult, especially for existing malls, to implement costly renovations, technical innovations, and the trend towards digitization and to simply keep up with change. At pep Einkaufs-Center in Munich-Neuperlach, we seized the opportunity, together with ECE, to add a new building to the center – and it was worth it: On average, the frequency of visits and their lengths of stay are now 20% higher than before repositioning, and sales have also increased by almost 10%. Our cooperation with ECE, as a partnership, has always been one where we see eye to eye, and the on-site support has also been excellent.”
“Since being appointed in 2011 as Center Manager for the Königsbau-Passagen shopping center in Stuttgart, we have developed an excellent long-term relationship with ECE. Together we have successfully developed and executed a comprehensive strategy for significantly growing the annual rent roll and achieving full occupancy. In particular, ECE have been able to target tenants from a wide range of national and international premium brands, allowing us to make the center one of the top shopping destinations in Baden-Württemberg.”
