After the opening of the facility in Northern Romania, Turda, the total volume of modern retail space for lease developed by Scallier amounted to over 31,000 sq m.
The new retail park, together with the Kaufland chain store, will create a traditional retail location with a diverse offer and a competitive advantage. The main tenants in the new retail park include Tedi, New Yorker, Hervis, DM, CCC, Deichmann, Flanco, Animax, ZooCenter, KiK, and Noriel. There will be also new restaurants and a local fitness studio.
“The needs reported by retail chains for modern space in smaller Romanian cities exceed the supply. Retail chains need facilities with high standards that guarantee comfort both for customers and the people employed to operate them. There is still a shortage of such properties in many cities in Romania” emphasizes Adrian Aleman, Development Director in the Romanian branch of Scallier. “Our properties are flexible projects that meet the needs and expectations of local communities, including local entrepreneurs. Such a diversified offer, along with an extensive gastronomic offer, is expected by the inhabitants of Romanian cities who do not want to give up their shopping habits” states Aleman.
Wojciech Jurga, Managing Partner at Scallier responsible for the company’s development in the Romanian market reiterates “Retail parks developed by Scallier introduce a new, commercial quality. These facilities are tailored to the requirements of both retail chains and local communities, and their structure, including the financial model based on the settlement of rents in EUR, additionally increases their attractiveness to international investors. In this way, we contribute to the creation of a modern commercial ecosystem in Romania in areas that so far have been largely deprived of such an offer”.
The retail park in Turda will be certified under the international BREEAM certification system, similar to other retail parks developed by Scallier in Romania.
