Mall and promenade of CentrO, Oberhausen

CentrO is a shopping mall and part of a large commercial development in Oberhausen, Germany, called the "Neue Mitte" or "new center".

Centro is Germany's largest shopping mall.

The development was rather controversial, with neighbouring municipalities opposing the project, fearing a loss of sales in their city centers.[1]
