The project is owned on a parity basis by KS Holding, a development company, and Arūtras Rakauskas, the President of Kesko Senukai Group, with investors. The volume of investment in the purchase and reconstruction of shopping center Galerija Azur amounted to 35 million euros, the portal delfi.lv. Luminor Bank financed the deal.
