An important achievement for us as a company committed to playing a leading role in the retail sector in Spain. I thank all employees for their contribution to this achievement."
There are several reasons why Mirasierra Gallery has been awarded Spain's best retail park, but the most prominent are:
- Sustainability and accessibility: Our avant-garde and eco-friendly design is a key feature. At Mirasierra Gallery, we have paid meticulous attention to every detail, from the choice of sustainable materials to the implementation of efficient energy-saving and waste management systems. Our design blends harmoniously with the surrounding nature, makes best use of natural light and promotes energy efficiency in all areas of the retail park. We also ensure excellent accessibility for visitors, with ample indoor and outdoor parking spaces and a strategic location for easy access by public transport.
- Originality and innovation: Mirasierra Gallery has revolutionised the industry by introducing the concept of healthcare & retail. It is the first and only retail park in Spain to integrate a hospital, a veterinary clinic and a pharmacy. This unique combination of fundamental facilities provides an attractive offer for visitors and redefines the shopping experience in retail parks. A comprehensive and practical solution for daily necessities, all in one place.
- Commercial mix and optimisation of communal areas: Mirasierra Gallery stands out for its broad commercial offer and the optimisation of its communal areas. With around 20,000 sq m of floor space and 9,500 sq m of gross leasable area (GLA), we offer a variety of top brands, spacious green areas and more than 250 parking spaces to create a welcoming and pleasant environment for visitors. We have carefully designed the communal areas: functional and attractive places - including rest areas, outdoor spaces and children's play areas - that encourage interaction and enjoyment.
- Achieved objectives: Mirasierra Gallery has far exceeded the objectives set from the start. We have experienced exceptional growth in a short time, brought in reputable retailers and satisfied visitors. Sales results have exceeded expectations, with retail merchants achieving record average sales. This reflects the high level of customer satisfaction.
- Positive contribution to the retail industry: Mirasierra Gallery has marked a before and after in the world of retail parks in Spain by successfully adapting to changing consumer shopping attitudes, resulting in a unique and satisfying shopping experience for visitors.
