Through its Puerto Venecia subsidiary, the company partly owns the “Puerto de Venecia Shopping Resort” commercial complex, located in Zaragoza, whose surface area exceeds 200,000 m2.
The centre is 8km south of Zaragoza on the city’s ring road. The catchment population extends from Aragon into the surrounding regions. The shopping and leisure element is situated over two floors surrounding a central lake. There are over 200 retail and leisure units and the centre has a cinema, climbing and karting plus over 30 restaurants. The centre receives over 18 million customer visits per annum and has over 10,000 car parking spaces. The centre has won various awards – notably Best Retail and Leisure Development Worldwide – 2013 Mapic Awards and it was the first shopping centre in Spain to receive Gold certification for sustainability – 2014 LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
The strategy of the Board of Zaragoza Properties SOCIMI is to continue to attract high quality international and national retailers, to grow footfall as a destination centre and ultimately to increase net rental income.
