The Palas project includes retail, offices and residential spaces, along with hotels. The project is built on a 120,000 sqm area and will be completed this year. It will include Palas Shopping Street, Palas Mall, two office buildings and four residential buildings.
The project, which will require an investment of some EUR 260 million, is being built in partnership with the Iasi City Council, the owner of the land where the project will stand. The real estate developers had estimated the project would bring EUR 150 million in benefits to the local budget until 2055.
