Our Barcelona team, headed up by Xavi have been working on a really exciting project in Bilbao, Spain. The scheme, known as Zubiarte has seen an €8 million refurbishment and has been a great success.
Finished in December 2018, the stunning transformation of the scheme has seen three great store openings this month and four retail units handed over this year to open before Easter.
It has been an extremely successful project with more than 30% footfall increase year on year (comparing Jan 2018 to Jan 2019), and a fantastic occupancy of over 99% on GLA.
To see the transformation of the scheme, we have a short video for you to watch below and images can be found in our gallery.
Zubiarte launches trailblazing IKEA concept store
Zubiarte has proudly unveiled its innovative IKEA planning centre under the name IKEA Disena Bilbao, bringing its unique Scandinavian design ideas closer to Bilbao.
Customers can work alongside IKEA interiors and design experts to create a custom design of their dream bathroom, kitchen, living room or bedroom. Consultants even offer a home-visit service to truly undestand the needs and individualities of a customer's home, followed by purchase support, including collection, transport and assembly services.
Zubiarte's IKEA Concept Store offers customers a completely new way to shop for interior design and is in keeping with the centre's redevelopment as an on-trend, contemporary destination for fashion and modern design.
Zubiarte's F&B offering adds tasty new names
Going from strength-to-stregnth, Zubiarte's makeover includes an enhanced F&B offering with two exciting new restaurant openings, Dinamico & Santo and Bizkarra & Co.
Dinamico & Santo unites Mexican food and the trusty burger in a unique foodie fusion of specialised gourmet burgers, all made with 100% Galician quality beef.
Bizkarra & Co offers a tasty route to healthy eating with natural ingredients and an extensive selection of teas and coffees, all in an appealing, cosy environment.
Ideally suited to Zubiate's cosmopolitan and chic atmosphere, the two new restaurants are open for buisness, offering visitors fresh culinary options while they shop.
