Construction of Veranda starts in Bucharest
Prodplast Imobiliare has started the construction works for Veranda mall in the Obor area of Bucharest. The project will have more than 100 stores and a Carrefour hypermarket. An extensive green area of 15,000 sqm, with parks, children's playgrounds, sports fields and terraces will supplement the commercial offer of the new mall. The investment in the project stands at €60 million.
“We are offering very accessible stores, a welcoming food court and the most extensive green area dedicated to a retail project in Romania so far. Thus, we want to contribute to the commercial revival of the Obor district,” said Andrei Pogonaru, member of the Board of Administration of Prodplast Imobiliare S.A.
The shopping center will offer its clients a wide variety of stores, organized on two levels, totalling 25,000 sqm of commercial spaces. Carrefour is an anchor and a strategic partner of the project, with a long-term lease agreement. The food court will be placed at the main entrance.
Veranda also offers 1,200 parking spaces, available to visitors. Thus, the shopping center will relieve traffic congestion in an area with insufficient parking spaces.
Veranda was designed by the British architects Chapman Taylor and will be finalized in 2016. CBRE Romania is the exclusive leasing agent of the mall.
