Redevco has been able to attract six high-profile retailers to Promenade Sainte-Catherine.
This implies about 70% of its commercial space has been let and the scheduled opening is only set for the second half of 2015.Superdry, an international fashion brand, has agreed on a 1150mІ unit, with BlueBox/Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren opening 1 1000mІ store. Pre-let agreements have also been signed by Passionata, Izaca, Bershka, and Moa. They will join La Fabrique des Lunettes, Swarovski, C&A, Monop, JD Sport, Lego Concept Store and Hollister.
The site is a redevelopment of the former head office of the regional newspaper, Sud-Ouest. Its design includes the placement of 19000mІ of restaurants and shops around a pedestrian square. There will be 10000mІ of social and private housing apartments placed on the upper floors. Work commenced during 2012 to open the site to allow it to link with the two prime shopping streets in the city, rue Porte Dijeaux and rue Sainte Catherine. Top international architects, Valode-Pistre, were used to ensure that the project blends with the historic city centre, which is a UNESCO world heritage site.
