Place of the Week: Adigeo in Verona – a shopping center helps to develop a district

ECE’s Adigeo is considered one of the largest and most modern inner-city shopping centers in Italy. The center impresses with its imposing architecture as well as its modern and innovative orientation and overall concept geared towards comprehensive sustainability.

Adigeo shopping center is located in one of the wealthiest regions in Italy and close to the city’s main freeway exit. The center lies directly at the main arterial road into downtown Verona and is also well-connected to the local bus network. Adigeo accommodates an attractive mix of Italian and international retail concepts and the fashion offer and the design are unrivaled in comparison to other centers in the catchment area.

Adigeo was on course for success right from the start: After a construction period of around 18 months, Adigeo opened in 2017 earlier than originally planned. The Adigeo was already fully leased at its opening. Owing to the high demand for leasing, ECE extended the Adigeo with supplementary spaces even during the planning and construction phase. The center, realized by ECE in cooperation with the real estate developer CDS Holding and CDS Costruzioni as a general contractor, was part of an extensive neighborhood upgrade in southern Verona. ECE had invested around 170 million euros in the project.

Today, the 131 stores with a mix of international and Italian concepts as well as numerous gastronomic offerings are spread over a rental area of around 44,000 sq m. Anchor tenants are among others H&M, Zara and Primark.
