The fastest growing owner-operator of premium fashion outlet destinations – VIA Outlets – is investing €17.5M in Sevilla Fashion Outlet.
The outlet will enjoy an extension of 2,680sq m which will create space for 17 major brands to be added to the existing roster of more than 70 stores. With this latest investment, VIA Outlets has invested a total of €30M in the centre since acquiring it in 2016.
The extension will include the creation of an experiential multipurpose space designed to host meetings, events and cultural happenings, as well as serve to give the entire commercial area a more sophisticated appearance – highlighting the beauty of the local Andalusian architecture and making reference to some of the most iconic elements and characteristic materials from the city of Seville. One of the most striking aesthetic features of the project will be an innovative ventilated façade made from ceramic slats, which utilises a passive natural lighting design to create feelings of spaciousness and comfort. The extension to Sevilla Fashion Outlets has been designed by internationally renowned architects L35, which previously worked on the remodelling of VIA Outlets’ Freeport Lisboa Fashion Outlet.
Otto Ambagtsheer, Chief Executive, commented: “Remodelling is a cornerstone in VIA Outlets’ 3 Rs strategy alongside remerchandising and remarketing and we are excited to continue our remodelling programme in Seville. Spain has always been an important market for VIA Outlets and it will continue to be so as tourism rebounces after the pandemic.”
