In response to the economic downturn seen in late 2007 and 2008, a special plan was created for Valle Real and then delivered, from 2010 to 2012, to attract international retail brands. This helped to reposition Valle Real as a leading shopping centre in the north of Spain, which in turn increased demand for retail space and resulted in a very high level of occupancy, rental volume and tenant sales.
With the optimisation of the overall shopping centre tenant mix and the introduction of new activities, the footfall and total sales of the shopping centre improved significantly, creating more value both for the tenants and for the owners, thus maximising the value of the shopping centre. An expansion is now underway.
Centro Colombo opened its doors in 1997 and through the development of two office towers, one in 2009 and the other in 2011, it was possible to create an additional 60,000m2 of GLA, which translated into an important increase in revenue from car parking and an increase in restaurant and retail unit sales.
