Kaufpark Eiche near Berlin continues to grow

New tenants include H&M, Douglas Parfümerie, Hunkemöller, Decathlon and dm-drogerie markt.

The shopping centre Kaufpark Eiche in Ahrensfelde near Berlin keeps growing and gains several new tenants: In addition to H&M, Douglas Parfümerie and the clothing stores Jeans Fritz, Colloseum and Olymp&Hades, the mall welcomes the sporting goods retailer Decathlon and the drugstore chain dm-drogerie markt. Three high-profile chains, Hunkemöller, mister*lady and SHOEART, have just recently launched their new stores. The new main entrance is now open as well. The shopping centre is currently being extensively renovated and modernised.

“Kaufpark Eiche can already be said to offer the widest range of stores anywhere on the eastern side of Berlin. It is popular among young and old alike, and is especially well-loved by families. The new tenants now represent a valuable addition to the existing store portfolio,” commented Dirk Brockmann, Managing Director of HLG Gesellschaft zur Entwicklung von Handelscentren. HLG is responsible for project development and letting.

“The location is becoming even more attractive”

“The large number of new lettings to high-profile chains and the loyalty of our existing tenants show that the modernisation of Kaufpark Eiche has struck a chord. This established location is becoming even more attractive for tenants and customers alike,” commented Christine Hager, Managing Director/Head of Shopping Centre Asset Management at the redos Group.

The ongoing renovation work at the shopping centre in Ahrensfelde includes doubling the catering space. The space available for events is also being increased threefold. Following the renovation, Kaufpark Eiche will offer retail space for around 125 stores across some 63,000 sq m. The grounds of the centre are also being improved with green areas, children’s playgrounds and additional event space.

Accessible entrances and additional lifts will also make the shopping centre easier for families and senior citizens to get around. “All of these measures are making Kaufpark Eiche a more pleasant place to spend time,” Hager added. It is scheduled for completion in autumn 2017, when an opening ceremony will be held.
