Why doesn't my business show up in maps?

Hello, I added my recently opened business on maps and verified as instructed.

If I do a google search for Polyhedron Egio it does show up just fine and I can click and see it listed on the map but if I open maps and direct myself at the address I can't see anything on the map.

 

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you :)

Thank you for your answer, based on the link I guess this is my problem here:
The place labels shown on Google Maps are determined algorithmically based on a large number of factors. One factor these algorithms consider is the accuracy of the business information and the richness of the content associated with the business. 

 

I still haven't completed the info 100%, I need to add some photos.
