Thor Urbana has bought a 45,000m² shopping centre in Cancun, Mexico. The scheme, known as Marina Town Center Mall, is located in Puerto Cancun’s mixed-use mega-project on the northeast coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.
Marina Town Center is now the largest retail asset in Thor Urbana’s portfolio which also includes assets like Calle Corazón, in Playa del Carmen, as well as a portfolio of retail units with a GLA of 17,500m² in Playa del Carmen’s Quinta Avenida.
