Torre Seville - A milestone in Andalusian retail
13th November 2018

A shopping centre at the heart of a 300 million euro mixed use scheme in Seville has been opened to the public.

The new Torre Sevilla shopping centre is part of a 240,000sqm complex situated in the Science and Technology Park Isla de La Cartuja and includes a 180m tower, the tallest building in Andalusia.

The project saw Broadway Malyan’s Madrid studio create a retail centre from two existing buildings on behalf of CaixaBank as part of wider regeneration project on the bank of the river Guadalquivir. As well as the tower, the scheme also includes the CaixaForum cultural centre, designed by the Sevillian architect Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra. The two central buildings define an avenue that has become an open mall with 26,700sqm GLA with the former workplace buildings redesigned for retail with new occupiers including Andalusia’s largest Primark, which saw 6,000 customers visit the store on its opening day.

The centre also includes a 6,000sqm area named El Brisolé with a large F&B offer, a 2,500sqm YO10 Sport gym a FNAC store.

“Torre Sevilla shopping centre brings together many of the current tendencies in retail,” said Broadway Malyan director Jorge Ponce.

“On one hand it showcases versatility in regenerating urban buildings originally conceived for a different use, in this case for workplace. It also demonstrates how the shopping centres are returning to the cities, experiencing very high pedestrian flood, instead of locations out of the city only accessible by car. And, finally, it shows how the retail is working as an anchor for the rest of the uses, in this case with hospitality and workplace in the tower and culture in the Caixa Forum.

“The design of the centre is a paradigm of the current tendencies in retail: open mall, the power of green and landscape and a significant focus in dining formats and terraces. Another important feature is the incorporation of a reduced format of traditional big-boxes such as Ikea, which has opened a store.

“With respect to the language and materials, the project has responded to the original César Pelli design for the complex with the vibrant needs of retail. The result is a well-balanced and contemporary solution that offers a memorable addition to the many charms of Seville”.
