The Irish multi-national fashion retailer, Primark, has chosen the Torre Sevilla shopping centre as the location for the opening of its first large urban store in Sevilla. Work to adapt the premises will begin this month.
The company’s choice of Torre Sevilla is due to the location of the shopping centre, close to the city’s Old Town and the metropolitan area of the capital.
Primark will be one of at least 80 stores, ranging from fashion, technology, sports, adventure, health and beauty, as well as restaurants and a state-of-the-art gym, that will open in the Torre Sevilla shopping centre.
CaixaBank has made a total investment of €20 million in the shopping centre. In terms of employment, more than 800 jobs have already been created, and an additional 1,500 direct and indirect jobs are expected to be generated when the commercial space is fully operational.
The shopping centre was designed by the architecture studio Broadway Maylan, which has received several international awards for urban planning, design and architecture projects. The property comprises two large buildings, which will have a combined gross leasable area of 25,000 m2.
