Rome, 16 December 2021
Multi Italy has been appointed by Savills Investment Management SGR S.p.A, on behalf of Sulis Fund and its investor, a real estate investment fund advised by Aventicum Real Estate, to manage the GranRoma Shopping Center.
GranRoma, which has a total GLA of ca. 30,700 sqm over two floors and 1,600 parking spaces, opened in May 2019 and hosts more than 100 stores, including Zara, Maisons du Monde, H&M, Cisalfa and Mediaworld. Next to the food court on the first floor, a large terrace offers unobstructed views over the Alessandrino Aqueduct, which dates back to 226 AD.
“We are very pleased to be appointed to oversee GranRoma shopping centre” said Luca Maganuco, Managing Director of Multi Italy and Hungary. “This is an important mandate that confirms Multi Italy’s commitment to property management, and it is even more important as customers return to visiting shops. We are looking forward to putting in place a number of new ideas which will make GranRoma even more appealing. This includes working with our in-house architecture team and design studio to improve the customer experience and make the shopping centre a flagship location where people want to meet and shop.”
With this new mandate, Multi Italy now manages nine shopping centre assets in the largest cities and metropolitan areas of Italy, including Valecenter in Marcon (Venice) and Forum Palermo – one of the best performing shopping centers in Italy.
Over the last five years, all assets have achieved excellent results on all key performance indicators, recording a significant increase in the quality of the properties.
“We are very pleased to start this collaboration with Multi ” said Vincenzo Altieri, Retail Portfolio Manager at Savills Investment Management Italy. “This represents an important milestone to consolidate GranRoma’s performance with a specific focus on ESG strategy and improvement of the merchanting mix of the scheme”
