Realia to inaugurate Ferial Plaza shopping mall in Guadalajara on 21 November 

Realia is making the final preparations to open its new shopping mall, Ferial Plaza in Guadalajara (Spain), on 21 November. The new mall, developed, built and managed by Realia itself, will be a major centre for shopping and leisure as it houses over 120 leading-name establishments.

Realia, chaired by Ignacio Bayón and controlled by FCC and Caja Madrid, has invested over 100 million euro in developing the new mall, generating 900 direct jobs and another 1,500 indirect jobs, including those involved in construction.

Ferial Plaza is a new departure in shopping and leisure for the city of Guadalajara, Spain, since its broad offering will spare shoppers a trip to other towns in the Henares valley. The new shopping centre's catchment area has a population of 133,000, and it will contribute to generating wealth in Guadalajara province.

Visitors will be able to sample food, fashion, accessories and a range of services from over 120 purveyors, including El Corte Inglés, in the over-50,000-square-metre mall.

Ferial Plaza occupies seven floors. Four floors above grade are devoted to shopping (hypermarket, fashion, accessories, etc.) and leisure. Three floors below grade are for parking, with capacity for 2,000 vehicles.

El Corte Inglés is the anchor tenant at Ferial Plaza. Its broad and varied range of quality products will be available on three of the mall's four floors, and its hypermarket, under the Hipercor flag, is also present.

Ferial Plaza is located alongside the A-2 highway, in Guadalajara's new area of expansion, beside the Tryp Guadalajara Hotel and the fairground; it has excellent communications for vehicles and pedestrians, who can reach the mall via the pedestrian overpass across the A-2.

This is one of Realia's most interesting projects for consolidating its track record in the shopping mall segment, backed by such solid examples as El Jardín de Serrano and La Vaguada in Madrid, Nervión Plaza in Sevilla and Twin Towers in Lisbon, and it is also developing Parque Comercial Plaza Nueva in Leganés (Madrid), La Noria Outlet Shopping in Murcia, a new mall in Denia (Alicante) and As Cancelas in Santiago de Compostela (La Coruña).
