In an interview with ACROSS, Árpád Török, CEO of TriGranit, explains the company’s focus since its acquisition by TPG Real Estate.

The current largest shopping center development project in Switzerland is the Mall of Switzerland in Ebikon, near Lucerne. ACROSS wanted to ask Marcel Stoffel, Managing Director of the Swiss Council of Shopping Centers (SCSC), how he views the project and what he sees as the future prospects for the Swiss shopping center industry.

There are currently 189 shopping centers in Switzerland with sales area greater than 5,000 sq m. This includes five largest railway stations and airport shopping in Zurich/Kloten. Last year, there were just 182 centers.

Why outlet center operators are increasingly seeking to emancipate themselves from the “factory” image and why large investors now also like to “shop” there.

Zsar Outlet Village is taking shape in the Finnish city of Vaalimaa. The developer EFRE is working on the project with a holiday resort going up nearby.
