Development around the Costa del Sol is increasing at a steady rate showing that interest in the area is well-founded. Developers McArthurGlen are starting construction of a huge designer outlet mall which will be located adjacent to Plaza Mayor Shopping centre, the city’s most visited shopping centre.
Plaza Mayor receives over 10 million national and international shoppers each year and the addition of this new shopping outlet is expected to attract even more crowds to enjoy the bargains.
Once completed the outlet is expected to be home to over 170 brands including some luxury and designer brands alongside local and international brands offering discounts between 30-70%.
The outlet mall is expected to generate employment for over 1000 workers in the region and the 30,000 sq metre of retail space is expected to cost around €115 million. McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Malaga is situated in a prime location with around 3 million consumers living within a 90-minute drive and over 10 million visitors coming to the Costa del Sol region every year. The new centre will be located just 3 minutes by train from Málaga International Airport, through which over 14 million passengers pass every year.
To reflect local Andalusian architecture the outlet mall will be open air village style and will have landscaped walkways, dancing fountains, a central luxury plaza, children’s playground facilities and 4,350 parking spaces.
McArthurGlen have shopping outlet villages across the world and this one in Malaga is in a prime position for people all over Andalucia to enjoy whether it is a day trip or popping in after collecting or dropping guests at the airport.
With the potential further development of the port area to make room for mega-yachts, Malaga is firmly positioning itself as a force to be reckoned with over and above being a city of art and culture.
