Nick Andrianakos invests over $135 million for half stake in Adelaide shopping mall


Rich Lister Nick Andrianakos has invested for the first time in a major shopping centre, acquiring a $135 million-plus half stake in Adelaide’s Colonnades mall, The Australian Financial Review (AFR) reports.

The deal comes almost half a century after the Greek migrant bought his first petrol station in 1973, and later went on to create the 54-asset Milemaker chain of petrol stations.
