ROMANIA Scallier polishes off Turda park

Retail & leisure
Polish developer Scallier has opened a retail park with a leasable area of 9,000 sqm in Turda in northern Romania – the fourth location for the company in the country.

Scallier has previously opened Funshop retail parks in Roșiorii de Vede, Focșani and Timișoara. With the opening of the centre in Turda, the combined area of leasable space developed by Scallier in the country now amounts to more than 31,000 sqm.

The main tenants in the Funshop Turda include Tedi, New Yorker, Hervis, DM, CCC, Deichmann, Flanco, Animax, ZooCenter, KiK and Noriel. Restaurants and a local fitness centre will also be opening.

The needs reported by retail chains for modern space in smaller Romanian cities exceed the supply. Retail chains need facilities with high standards that guarantee the comfort of use both by customers and by people employed to operate them. There is still a shortage of such centres in many cities in Romania. Our properties are flexible projects that meet the needs and expectations of local communities, including local businesses, because apart from large retail chains, our tenants are also people who operate commercial and service projects on a much smaller scale. Such a diversified mix, along with an extensive gastronomic range, is expected by the inhabitants of Romanian cities who do not want to give up their shopping habits. So we meet the expectations of both tenants and customers.
Adrian Aleman, the development director of Scallier in Romania

As with the other Scallier retail parks in the country, the centre in Turda is to be BREEAM certified. Later this year, Scallier plans to open its fifth retail park in Romania, in the eastern town of Vaslui.
