The €140 million property will span 30,000 sqm of retail space and is being constructed in two phases. When complete, the centre will be home to a mix of over 170 names, including some of the most sought-after luxury and designer brands, alongside other global and local brands – all offering 30%-70% discount. Phase one is scheduled to open late 2018 and will comprise 17,500 sqm of retail space with 100 stores.
McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Málaga will be placed adjacent to the thriving Plaza Mayor Shopping Centre, the city’s most visited shopping centre, which receives over 10 million local and international customers every year and is managed by Sonae Sierra.
The centre will feature McArthurGlen’s mark open-air village style, designed to reflect the local Andalusian architecture. It will have landscaped walkways, dancing fountains, a central luxury plaza and children’s playgrounds.
José Luis Arenas, McArthurGlen’s Development Manager for Spain, stated: “Today marks an important milestone in this pioneering development which will deliver the first ever designer outlet in southern Spain. Three years after we announced our partnership with Sonae Sierra we are excited to celebrate the construction phase of this landmark retail project, which also marks McArthurGlen’s entry into the Spanish market. We continue to work very closely with the regional authorities to ensure our presence delivers positive benefits for Malaga. When the centre opens in 2018, it will bring significant employment to the region as well as a unique retail offering to three million local consumers and the 10 million tourists who visit Malaga every year.”
Alexandre Pessegueiro, Sonae Sierra’s Head of Asset Management Spain, told: "The laying of the first stone of the new McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Málaga symbolises Sonae Sierra’s commitment to the Spanish market with a major investment adjacent to our first shopping centre in Spain developed fifteen years ago. This project will ensure a unique offer of luxury and designer brands and reinforce a single commercial complex in Spain. I would like to thank the City Council and the other Public Administrations for the trust they have shown us to carry out this project.”
