The European investment funds Eurofund Capital Partners and Patron Capital have strengthened their presence and operations in Spain with the acquisition of three shopping centres: El Mirador, located in Cuenca; Los Alcores, in the town of Alcalá de Guadaira (close to Sevilla); and Alzamora, in Alcoy (Alicante).
Over the next few months, it will invest approximately €13 million in these centres to renew their retail offering, as well as to incorporate new domestic and international firms in the sector, and to increase the leisure and restaurant offer.
El Mirador de Cuenca is one of the iconic shopping centres in Castilla La Mancha and has no competitors in Cuenca. Inaugurated in 2002, it has a gross leasable area of 16,400 m2 and is home to more than 60 stores, including several high profile brands such as H&M, Cortefiel and Carrefour.
Los Alcores forms part of the Parque Guadaira retail area, next to the town of Alcalá de Guadaira. With a gross leasable area of 12,400 m2, its tenants include firms such as H&M, Lefties, Bershka and Stradivarius (…).
Meanwhile, the Alzamora shopping centre is also the main operator in the Alcoy area. It has a gross leasable area of 16,000 m2 and houses a wide range of retail (Zara, Massimo Dutti, Springfield) and leisure firms (cinemas, gym).
This is the second joint operation by Eurofund Capital Partners and Patron Capital in Spain, following their acquisition in July 2015 of the Dolce Vita Odeón shopping centre in Narón, near Ferrol, where it is carrying out a complete refurbishment both inside and outside the property, which, including the improvements made over the last two years, amount to €10 million (…).
