Rocca al Mare Centre opened its doors in 1998, being the first and biggest of its kind in Estonia.[citation needed] It was designed by architects Meeli Truu and Anton Andres.[1]

In 2005 Citycon Oyj (a company specialized on shopping centres' development and management) acquired Rocca al Mare Centre. Citycon Oyj's development began on 1 October 2008 when Rocca al Mare's first refreshed section was opened. In May 2009, a completely renovated fashion section in the left wing was opened, which offers a wide range of international and domestic brands. There are hundreds of brands represented in the centre, many of which have the only representative in Estonia located in the Rocca al Mare shopping centre.
