The Kö-Bogen has been setting new accents since autumn 2013. The main tenant is the luxury department store Breuninger. In addition there are trademarks like Hallhuber, Laurèl, Joop, Windsor and Strenesse. The first mainland branch of the Restaurant Sansibar Sylt is also located in the fashion house Breuniger.
