Eurofund Capital Partners
Logistics Capital Partners Joint Venture
Eurofund was founded in 1994.
In 1998 it completed the development of Parc Vallès, a 60,000 sqm integrated leisure and retail park in Terrassa, Barcelona.
In 1999 Eurofund saw the potential for the concept of Shopping Resorts, destinations where people not only come to shop but also to spend their free time.
Puerto Venecia in Zaragoza opened in 2012 and was voted 'Best new shopping and leisure centre in the world' at the 2013 Mapic awards. With a GLA of over 200,000 sqm it is Europe's largest retail destination and welcomes nearly 20m guests every year.
In April 2013 Eurofund established a joint venture with intu, the leading investor in shopping centres in the UK, to develop and manage a platform of Shopping Resorts in Spain.
In January 2015, Eurofund created Eurofund Capital Partners and entered into its first project, a joint venture to extend and transform Dolce Vita Tejo in Lisbon, Portugal, the country's largest shopping centre, into the country's first Shopping Resort.
Eurofund Capital Partners also acquired Dolce Vita Odeón, a shopping center in Narón (Ferrol). With a planned investment of over €12M, Eurofund is transforming the centre and its vision for the centre has attracted new retailers such as H&M and Lefties.
Eurofund Capital Partners acquires 140,000 sqm to develop Parc Lleida, the largest retail park in the region with 55,000 sqm GLA and an investment over €80M.
Three new shopping centers in Cuenca, Alcoy and Sevilla are added to our portfolio . With an investment plan of over €60M, Eurofund's Capital Partners visión is to rank each of them as leaders in their catchment area.
Because sheds are the new shops, Eurofund has entered into a joint venture with Logistics Capital Partners, one of Europes leading logistics developers, to develop logistics platforms in Spain and Portugal.
