The site closes in record time to extend the commercial area of Settimo Cielo Retail Park by 26,000 square meters.
The works for the extension of Settimo Cielo Retail Park have been completed in record time: today the commercial park is officially the largest in Italy.
43,000 square meters of existing commercial area plus 26,000 square meters, for a total of 69,000 square meters: Settimo Cielo Retail Park, a few steps from Turin, thus increases the space dedicated to shopping and entertainment for visitors. But that’s not all: the extension of the Seventh Sky Retail Park has allowed the creation of more than 600 new jobs.
The property is owned by Settimo Sviluppo Spa, while the construction of the new spaces was carried out by Building spa with the design by Building Engineering and Boffa Petrone & Partners. The company promoting the expansion is Promocentro Italia Srl while the marketing of the new area was entrusted to Cushman & Wakefield, a company responsible for managing the commercial park.
The design idea of Building spa, a company of excellence in the network of Exclusive Brands Turin, is to give life to a continuation of the “walk” between the commercial activities. In order to give the same visibility to all the shops, it was decided to create a new space “at court”, with three different areas: the first sees a large pedestrian area, the second for outdoor activities in summer and winter, the third is a large area where it has created a post-industrial setting. All completed by a series of kiosks and a new parking area with turrets for electric charging for vehicles and an area for animals.
“At the gates of a model municipality in the hinterlands of Italian cities, we inaugurate the seventh heaven of shopping, the largest commercial park in Italy. 62 points of sale, 850 employees and 9 million expected visitors mean that the Turin-Milan area is one of the most productive and strategic economic areas in Northern Italy and the country,” comments Piero Boffa, Chairman of the Building Group.
Settimo Cielo, inaugurated in 2011, has already enjoyed enormous commercial success in the last 8 years. Thanks to its strategic location, near the highways Turin-Milan and Turin-Aosta, the commercial park has immediately become the reference point for shopping lovers, thanks to the presence of numerous renowned brands of high quality. Thanks to the extension works, Settimo Cielo is ready to welcome an even wider clientele, with more than forty new open windows that include shops, street and fast food spaces, restaurants.
