The company currently owns 17 assets, including shopping centres, retail parks and offices that comprise a total gross lettable area of 317,106m², following the merger and upgrade of the Granaita retail park for €5.5m.

Our objective is to provide them with added value, which is why we are working to ensure that our shopping centres are not just a shopping area".
