Euroc Fastigheter AB , Sweden’s major building materials conglomerate, the owner of a massive quarry site in Malmo, Sweden. It had been a primary source of limestone for cement production for over a century. Operations at the site were winding down and the quarry life as a mineral resource had ended. Surface area of the quarry was approximately 80 hectares within a 100 hectare site. Through its subsidiary, The Theme Park Development Company, Ltd., Euroc had been evaluating attraction and recreational development opportunities on this property, stimulated by the impending construction of a multi-billion kroner bridge connection between Copenhagen and Malmo. The bridge, known as Oresund Link would provide a direct ground link to Denmark and Western Europe with economic and logistical significance comparable to England’s channel tunnel connection to France.
