With the addition of Aeria Mall in Casablanca (in the Casa Anfa district), comprising 25,000 sq m GLA, Sonae Sierra now manages three shopping centers in the country: including Arribat Center in Rabat (44,800 sq m GLA), Carre Eden in Marrakesh (15,000 sq m GLA); and now a total of 84,800 sq m GLA under management, representing over 190 shops.
Cristina Santos, Sonae Sierra‘s Managing Director for Property Management and Leasing, said: “We are very pleased to see the trust upheld in our long-term know-how of the Moroccan market. The growth of our Moroccan portfolio is proof of our capacity to deliver to partners our international expertise with local acumen.”
Anfa Realties’ CEO, Younes Essassi, added: “We are very glad to expand our partnership with Sonae Sierra and continue working with such a professional team. We are sure they will contribute to the success of this amazing project.”
The mall offers 93 shops, including a Marjane supermarket, plus national and international brands in the world of ready-to-wear, fashion accessories, beauty, home furniture and much more. The shopping center is part of the Casa Anfa urban neighborhood project, which also includes an office and a residential component, inserted in a larger development scheme covering 350 hectares.
The overall district is firmly committed to sustainable development. The city of Casablanca has decided to dedicate no less than a third of this project to green spaces, including a central metropolitan park of 500,000 sq m.
