Redevco to start constructing Magnesia Shopping Centre in Manisa, Turkey

November 16, 2010

Redevco Turkey will start constructing the 17,000 sq m Magnesia Shopping Centre in the first quarter of 2011. Manisa is one of the most industrialised provinces in Turkey’s Aegean Region and has a total population of 1,330,000. The centre will offer a 4,500 sq m hypermarket, a 1,500 sq m cinema complex, 1,500 sq m of food court and more than 8,500 sq m of retail area spread over 65 units. The Shopping Centre will also provide more than 400 parking spaces. Magnesia Shopping Centre is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2012.

Magnesia Shopping Centre will offer a wide variety of well-known brands in Turkey from menswear and womenswear, sportswear and casual wear to kidswear, accessories and lingerie. Redevco Turkey has started the leasing process and has already signed a number of agreements. Redevco’s tenants in Gordion Shopping Centre and Erzurum Shopping Centre have shown a keen interest in Magnesia Shopping Centre. One of the biggest international hypermarket operators has already committed itself to the project.

Magnesia Shopping Centre, designed by RedevConcepts, is a 3-level shopping centre located on Manisa’s main road, by a green park area. The natural height difference of the site offers the opportunity to create two ground level entrances. One entrance is situated on the Mimar Sinan Boulevard, which is the main artery of Manisa, and will create an attractive square with cafés and restaurants looking onto the mountains. The other entrance is on Ali Riza Efendi Street, which connects directly to the neighbourhood. The architecture of the centre is based on local materials such as stucco, wood and rough natural stone blocks.

Redevco already opened two shopping centres in 2009: the 50,000 sq m Gordion Shopping Cantre in Ankara and the 32,000 sq m Erzurum Shopping Centre in Erzurum.

To improve energy efficiency and to promote green design, the Magnesia Shopping Centre, designed by RedevConcepts, is being developed according to BREEAM standards. BREEAM is the world’s longest established and most widely used green building standard. Gordion Shopping Centre and Erzurum Shopping Centre were both awarded BREEAM ‘Very Good’ certificates in 2009.
